Blue Folder – November 21, 2012

Happy Thanksgiving!

PTA Announcements

  • Volunteers Needed!
    Help out with our reading programs – Just 1 hr. a month, or more if you are willing! You could collect data, create prize lists, shop for prizes, and/or give out prizes, etc. Whatever you could contribute would be much appreciated!
    The PTA also seeks Chairs to organize the Winter Sing Along (12/13/12), and International Night / Art Fair (1/23/13).
    The Sing Along is next month, and is a Madera tradition, that we would love to see continue. However, we need some folks to step up and help organize the event. You would work with our vocal music instructor to help print programs, and oversee decorating/preparing the multipurpose room and the dessert tables. This is a fun and easy job!!
    This is the time of the year to give back to the school you love! Give thanks by giving back 🙂
  • Buy a Gift Card, Support Madera (PDF) The holidays are right around the corner.  Planning on giving gift cards?  Browse through the list in the PDF linked above, and find gift cards to hardware stores, grocery stores, children’s clothing stores, department stores, coffee shops, restaurants… By buying through this event, Madera PTA will receive a percentage of the sale.  Madera has over 500 families.  If each family buys one of these cards that’s easily $2000 for the PTA.  Questions? Contact Crystal.
  • Sign up for Paperless Blue Folders
