We hope you are enjoying our winter break.  As a reminder, we are hosting two very important meetings Monday night, January 9th, which is our first day back at school.

From 6 – 7 is the Student Based Budgeting Priorities meeting.  This is when Ms. Livingston will ask for the school communities feedback about the budget for next year.  Under the Student Based Budgeting model, Ms. Livingston is responsible for building a budget based on the specific needs of our school.  She gathers feedback from the staff and community to make sure we are in alignment with where we think money needs to be spent.  This is a very important opportunity to influence the priorities for the school in the upcoming year.  Please come and share your opinions.

After the budget priorities meeting, we will be hosting our regularly scheduled PTSA General Membership meting will be held from 7 – 8 pm.  During this meeting, we will make some decisions about some recent financial requests and develop action items around our PTSA male participation goal. We have LOTS of fundraising items to talk about, and we will plan for a few upcoming events.

Our long-lasting tradition (and, personally, my favorite!) on the last day of school before winter break, we have an all school ice skating party at APEX.  Volunteers are needed on the ice, if you are able to join us at APEX.  (Permission slips were sent home last week in the Friday Folders.)
When we return from skating, parent take over teacher and staff duties, so the staff can enjoy a holiday meal together.  If you would like to provide food for the staff lunch and/or volunteer for covering their responsibilities during lunch, then please sign up at http://signup.com/go/c759F9  Let’s show our teachers how much we appreciate them by treating them to some delicious food and giving them a bit of a break!
After recess, we will be doing the Egg Drop to see which team’s design successfully prevent their egg from breaking.  Then we will go to the classroom parties.  You should have heard from your Room Parent or Teacher about how you can support each of those events.
Obviously, it is a BIG day and your support of this celebration is greatly appreciated.

Help us get a 3-D Printer!!
We have launched a second Donors Choose campaign.  Donors Choose works just like KickStarter or GoFundMe, but they are specific to meeting the needs of schools and classrooms.  Ms. Norris is fundraising for a 3-D printer.  This piece of equipment can give our students an opportunity to utilize team-work and problem-solving skills.  Students will have an opportunity to propose, develop and perfect possible solutions developed around specific projects.  To support this project, please visit: https://www.donorschoose.org/project/stem-3-d-printing/2316896  Please share this link with your friends and family, too.  Anyone can support the project from anywhere!
