We need help from our PUE Families with beautifying our school grounds on Sunday, September 29th from 10-2pm! Did you know that it is a PTA duty to maintain PTA planted flowers, shrubs, etc.? What this means is that the carpool circle, islands throughout the carpool, butterfly garden, and picnic tables are required to be maintained by the PUE families rather than the county because the flowers and shrubs were so graciously donated by our PUE families. The PTA is getting estimates from landscapers in the area to use PTA funds to do a significant portion but we also need YOUR HELP because the school grounds need some serious LOVE and this is going to be an expensive endeavor!! The PUE PTA priority this year is to make our grounds as beautiful as the community that we represent. Our focus on the 29th will be on weeding and laying mulch in the butterfly garden and weeding a small portion of the center island in the carpool circle. Please take an hour of your time to come out and lend a hand. Look for a Sign Up Genius for tools, mulch and other materials.
TerraCycle reuses, upcycles, and recycles waste instead of incinerating or landfilling it. This moves waste from a linear system to a circular one, allowing it to keep cycling in our economy. The PUE PTA is partnering with Panthers Give Back and hosting Terracycle Tuesdays at PUE, starting on Tuesday, September 24th. We will have a weekly recycling drive asking for certain acceptable waste to be dropped off during carpool. For each piece of waste we recycle, the PUE PTA earns $0.01. We will be partnering with Tom's of Maine for our first event. You can also sign up at WWW.TERRACYCLE.COMand join free programs. Select Pleasant Union Elementary PTA as your Charity.

We have delivered all of the shirts in the respective sizes that we had IN STOCK. We placed an order for all of the track and grade level shirts that we did not have in stock. We will deliver the shirts upon receipt from the vendor. We will send a message, via Memberhub, when we receive the shirts so you know to look out for the shirts in your child's backpack. We will make certain these shirts are ordered and delivered to your child prior to their first field trip. The PTA will order extra shirts and will announce when the shirts are available in the school store (while supplies last).
MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!
