We hope all of the PUE Families had an awesome labor day weekend! The following items highlight the upcoming action items and events!
Memberhub and PTA Membership
Thank you to all of the families that turned in their blue forms and joined the PTA at open house. Our membership is already up to 253 members this year which is awesome! We have set a goal of 550 members so please consider joining if you have not already by clicking the following link: http://pueschool.corecommerce.com/pta-parent-membership. The classroom with the most membership by October 31st will win a Pizza Party!!
Each student is required to have a colored track shirt (Grades K-3) and a grade level shirt (Grades 4 and 5) in order to attend field trips with their classrooms. The deadline for ordering shirts has passed. The PTA will order extra shirts and will announce when the shirts are available in the school store (while supplies last).
Encourage STEM with your child! Access the following link to join the LEGO club: http://pueschool.corecommerce.com/lego-club. The cost is $10 per student. The meetings occur on the 2nd Tuesday (Grades 3-5) and 2nd Wednesday (Grade K-2) of each month. Lego Club will start on September 10th and 11th for the current school year.
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.
