Welcome to the 2015-2016 School Year!


Welcome to the 2015-2016 School Year!

** Gearing Up
————————————————————
Welcome back! The summer flew by! Can you believe that school begins next week? The Back to School Ice Cream Social is happening this Friday, August 7th from 3-5 pm. The social is a great time to meet your child’s teacher and drop off school supplies to their classroom. (Still need school supplies? The class supply lists are here.) PTO will be selling school merchandise. We would love to tell you more about PTO and our volunteer needs for the year. Please drop by the media center/Library and say “hello”!

The first day of school is Monday, August 10th. Kindergarten will be dismissed at 1:00 pm on Monday, August 10th and Tuesday, August 11th. Kindergarten students will begin full days on Wednesday, August 12th. All other students will attend full days beginning the first day of school.

** Check out what’s new from Fireside PTO
————————————————————
You have seen our new logo, but have you seen our new website? The PTO has been hard at work this summer updating both our Facebook page and website. The new website layout includes a calendar of upcoming events, explanations of how the PTO supports your students, and a volunteer sign up sheet.

Our website’s sign up sheet works very similarly to the Sign Up Genius app we used previously; however, all sign ups will now all be in one, easy to find place. This sign up list will be regularly updated and include both regular PTO programs like library support along with special events like BINGO night and the Ice Cream Social. Check it out and sign up today!

** We Need Your Help
————————————————————
We are in desperate need for the following committee heads:
* Staff Appreciation chair
* Bingo Night chair
* Winter Carnival chair

While, the PTO really enjoys putting on fun family events, not everything can be done with just a few people. We are in need of chairs for these committees and without a chair, these events and programs may not happen. If you are interested in volunteering or to find out more information, please contact Manda Stanley or stop by our table at the Ice Cream Social to find out how you can help.
