Dear Families of [teacher]’s [grade],

Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year! It looks like our kids are off to a great start, and are adjusting to new routines, schedules and experiences.

We have volunteered to be room parents for [teacher]'s classroom this year, and we are excited to work with all of you to plan some fun events and to help find classroom volunteers.

Please let us know your preferred method of communication.

Are you okay with being contacted via email, and do you have a different preferred email address?  May we include your address in a visible group email, or would you prefer your email to be hidden from others in a bcc?

You may have already signed up to help out in the classroom.  We will also be contacting you as the need arises.  [here you can include any activities communicated to you by your teacher].

In addition to classroom activities, we will also be contacting you with opportunities to help with school-wide activities as the year progresses.  Though we will send more information closer to the events, some upcoming school and PTO activities include:

October 14 Academic Fair/Egg Drop

        See Digital Backpack flyer or Irving web site.

October 21  Fun Run

This is the 3rd year for this fundraiser.  Kids get donations from friends and families, and then they run for a set length of time.  Your child should already have brought home a Get Movin’ Crew registration form. The Organizers may need volunteers, and maybe some donations.

October 30 Halloween Parade

Volunteers will be needed to help kids change into costumes.  We will let you know if we need any supplies and/or volunteers for a class celebration.

November 5 Trivia Night

A fundraiser just for adults at Wire!  Registration forms are available at school.

December 12 Cookie Crumble & Craft Fair

Cookie donations will be needed for this 'fill a box' event, and it's also your opportunity to get your 'handmade' groove on by renting a table and selling; or browsing and buying.

December TBD Winter Concerts

We will let you know if our grade will be doing any celebration before the winter holidays.

Thanks so much - feel free to contact us with any questions!
