December 15 will be the next activity night at the Middle School. This will take place from 3-5 pm. If you are able to donate cookies, brownies, etc. (they do not need to be individually wrapped) to be sold at the activity night, please contact Mary at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wow! Looking ahead to January already…The Elementary is having a Popcorn Sale on Fri, 1/8/16. So in preparation for that, the PTCO will be popping popcorn on Thurs (1/7/16). Any help on thatThursday or Friday would be greatly appreciated. If you can help or have any questions, please contact Roberta at email@example.com
The last scrip order before Christmas will be placed on Tuesday, 12/15/15 (please note date change). Get your order in to get those last Christmas gifts! The order should be available on Friday, 12/18/15.
Have you ever wondered how you can help out the PTCO, but just can’t find the time to volunteer? Here is a great opportunity for YOU! The PTCO is selling ice cream sundaes at all home, Varsity basketball games. The funds raised by these sales will be put toward scholarships for two Kent City seniors in the spring. If you would like to donate a large pail of ice cream for these sales, please contact Mary Wilson at firstname.lastname@example.org. The more ice cream we can get donated, the more funds can go toward our Kent City students!
Due to the fact that the December 2015 PTCO meeting would have fallen on a day over Christmas vacation, it was decided that the meeting would be cancelled. The next PTCO meeting will be on Monday, 1/25/16, at 6:30 pm in the Administration Building. Hope to see you there!
Kent City PTCO has enrolled in a program which enables you to support the PTCO while shopping online through Amazon. Simply log in to your Amazon account using this link: https://smile.amazon.com/ch/27-3948800 and your purchases will automatically start supporting Kent City PTCO.
AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization.
If you do not have the above link to log in through, you can simply go to www.smile.amazon.com. Once you have logged in, you can search and select a charity (Kent City PTCO).
This is the message you will receive after you have selected Kent City PTCO:
“Now when you shop at smile.amazon.com, Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase price. We will reach out to Kent City Ptco to ensure it is ready to accept donations from Amazon.”
Here is a link about the AmazonSmile program that may answer any questions you may have: http://smile.amazon.com/gp/chpf/about/
Lastly, for those of you that are already using Scrip, be aware that you can also pay for Amazon purchases using ScripNow or Amazon gift cards. Those are two simple ways to support the PTCO while making your online purchases through Amazon.
Please consider donating something toward the teacher dinner before parent/teacher conferences on November 17th.
During all home varsity basketball games, we will be selling ice cream treats to fund a scholarship for two graduating seniors. We would love some help selling these treats. If you can help at even one game, please sign up using the link below.
The Elementary needs someone that is willing and able to check in with teachers and walk any younger students to the stage for their pictures. If this is something you could help out with, please contact Sara Schutt at email@example.com. Thank you!
