Donations for Miss Cook

Share

As many of you know Miss Cook will be out for the next month due to major surgery from medical issues. Since she will be in the hospital and unable to be active for a prolonged amount of time, we’ve determined that the most helpful and private way to support her is to get her an Amazon gift card for food delivery, a new book to read, or a dog toy for her pup.

If your family would like to contribute, Lisa Waskowitz (Sam & Theo’s Mom), Ms. Hardman, Ms. Graves, or Robin Graham (Derek & Warren’s Mom) can collect your cash or check donations (checks can be made out to STEM PTA who will then buy a gift card). You can send donations with your child to school Dec 15-19 in an envelope marked “Miss Cook”.

Please join us in sending our best wishes by also signing a card in the front office for Whitney.

2nd Annual Book Fair Blizzard was a Big Success!

Share

$3,220 raised for our school library and classroom libraries

Book Fair Blizzard 12-11-14 011

Thank you to everyone who came to our Book Fair Blizzard last week!

We sold $6,410 worth of books and other items (spy pens, bookmarks, you name it…) – which gives us a grand total of $3,220 to spend on Scholastic books.

A special thank you to those of you who bought a book for your child’s teacher from the Wish Boxes!

  • Between generous donations and money earned from the Book Fair, every teacher got EVERY BOOK in their Wish Box (that includes Mr. Des and Mr. Parsley’s 6th Grade Library)
  • We were able to buy EVERY BOOK Mrs. B. had picked out for the STEM Library

A big thank you to everyone who donated pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters and dollars!

Ms. Hardman’s class won the $50 Book Fair gift certificate for raising the most money. They raised $110. Great job kindergarteners!
