FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!
Morning PTA welcome in the Multipurpose Room immediately following drop off.
(don’t forget this is a minimum day, 2:05 dismissal)
Here we are, last days of summer. When we soak up the all the relaxation and fun we can cram in before we’re back to regular schedules and early morning madness. Enjoy it.
I wanted to remind everyone that this year we’re asked to bring school supplies for your child on the first day of school. Supply lists are on the website by grade.
While your shopping look for the Box Tops for Education labels and earn money for Madera. You can even order your supplies, (and anything else you need for back to school) on the Box Tops for Education website. It takes a minute or two to sign up for an account, and be sure to select Madera as your school of choice. Once you set up and account, dozens of online stores are linked where you can shop away and earn cash for Madera.
I’m sure you have all seen the new Safeway is close to completion. If you’re like me, you can’t wait to shop in a fully stocked clean new store. Be sure to look for the school bus symbol next to all sorts of items. Keep your receipt and turn in to Madera the first weeks of school, so we can earn money for all of your purchases.
Please let me know if you have any questions about any of the above items or any back to school related questions.
Looking forward to seeing you all in just a couple short weeks. Aaak.
Madera PTA President
