Bumblebee Fundraiser Delivery on Monday
Tumblers and pies from our fundraiser will be delivered to Maxwell tomorrow (Monday, 10/20). Bumblebee will be delivering the items to the gym in the morning. After you pick up your child in the afternoon, please head to the gym. Orders will be around the perimeter of the gym, sorted by class, and will be labeled. Maxwell staff will be on hand to direct you to your order. You can also pick up your items on Tuesday Morning after drop off.If your child rides the bus and you have no way to pick up your order, e-mail or call Mrs. Bell. Several parents have volunteered to deliver items to families without transportation. The tumblers are easy to transport. The pies, though delicious, are tricky to transport. On a positive note - this fundraiser generated enough profit to purchase 3 iPads per class! Thank you for your efforts to raise funds for our kids.
Tomorrow, we kick-off our Adios Hunger Food Drive. All food is donated to God’s Pantry Food Bank and is distributed to Fayette County Families. This is a great way to introduce to our students power of giving. We use this annual event to teach our “Cattitude” of Kindness and reinforce the 21st Century Learning skills of Collaboration, Global Awareness and Empathy. At this time, the Food Bank is especially in need of canned vegetables and fruits, canned soup, and peanut butter in plastic jars. Have your child take the items to their classroom, and they will be brought down as a class in order to have a teachable moment.
As you are dropping off or picking up your child, take a minute to look at the beautiful vegetables growing in our Community Garden. Students in our leadership class, led by Mrs. Jones, have worked tirelessly since last spring writing a grant, designing the garden, planting, and tending the garden. We are looking forward to the Fall Harvest on November 7th.
Picture retakes will be November 13th.
