Happy Track Out to Track 1 Families! We hope everybody has been safe from Hurricane Dorian and is ready to get back to school. The following items highlight the upcoming action items and events!
Memberhub and PTA Membership
Our membership is up to 296 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!!
The PTA will continue to deliver shirts to the children's classrooms this week. We do not have all shirts in stock so a large order will be placed for additional shirts. 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).
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 this Tuesday, September 10th and Wednesday, September 11th.
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.
Grandparents' Breakfast: Unfortunately, we had to postpone the grandparents' breakfast that was scheduled for this past Friday because of Hurricane Dorian. We will reschedule this event and will reissue a new evite for the the grandparents and students to sign up.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!
Tree Runner Adventure Park: We will have our 1st Family Fun Event at Tree Runner Adventure Park on Friday, September 27th, starting at 4:30pm. Tickets will be $35 for an aerial ticket (Ages 7 and Up) and $17 for a Junior Park ticket (Ages 7 and Under). A paying adult chaperone must accompany grades K-3 (up to 3 children per family) for the aerial park. An adult chaperone must also accompany children on the Junior Park (up to 3 children per family) but does not have to pay. This is a great way to hang with your family and the rest of the PUE community. Access the following link and get your tickets now: http://pueschool.corecommerce.com/family-fun/. These tickets are discounted from the standard Tree Runner ticket prices of $44 for an aerial ticket and $20 for a Junior Park ticket.
Quarterly Staff Appreciation Lunch: Track 3 Parents will be hosting lunch for the PUE teachers, staff and administration on September 27th. Thank you to all Track 3 parents that have already made your quarterly donation to your teacher's lunch!
