Hi Parents! We hope that 2017 has been great for you so far! It has brought on some changes for us that we are working through and are excited to get YOUR HELP!

Our VP had a sudden relocation to the Redding area and we wish her and her family the very best! Sara Bouchard, our Fundraiser Co-Chair, was unanimously voted in as VP and will be your President next year! She has made a huge contribution towards our fundraising goals and has shown nothing but teamwork and drive for our school.

Here’s where YOU come in! The fundraising has been scheduled, and we would love someone to shadow her, and Chairperson Becky Sprague, during the rest of the year’s events and jump in as a co-chairperson for fundraising next year. We have a number of other positions that will be opening as most of the current board only have 4th and 5th graders left at our school. To show you what you could be a part of, here is some of the great things we’ve been working on since 2015.

Full computer lab – Delivered Summer 2016

Rock Wall – Delivered Fall 2016

Electronic Marquee – Will be installed Spring 2017

Misc. Items: Speaker Monitor for MPR, clipboards for classes, teacher carry caddies, 5th Grade T-Shirts, Winterfest, Movie Nights, Harry Potter Night, Back-to-School Social, Multi-Cultural Night, Product Fundraisers, After-school activities, Book Fairs

Upcoming: 2 Product Fundraisers, Talent Show, 2 Week Fun-Run Spectacular, Book Fair, Carnival, Teacher Appreciation Week, Spring Bazaar. We are currently working toward a TECHNOLOGY TUNEUP! More chromebooks for all of our classrooms!

Start slow and help decorate, or jump in and see what we’re about. Not only are you helping your children enjoy what their school has to offer, you’ll make some great “grown-up” friends, too.

Our meetings our held the 1st Monday of the month at 7pm in room 27. For next school year, we will need a Vice President, a Co-Chair Fundraising (we don’t work alone), a Volunteer Coordinator, and a Publicity Chairperson! Moms, Dads, Grandparents…anyone and everyone is welcome!

If you are interested in taking a peek or jumping in head first, we’ll support you. We love fresh ideas and resources; the sky is the limit! Please call me direct or stop by our table Friday night at movie night.

Thank you for your support, and thank you on behalf of your Bulldog!
