Welcome to the St. Giles PTO
Thank you to everyone who was able to attend the October PTO meeting.
If you weren't able to come, please find the minutes HERE. We had a great discussion about Enews—how to streamline it while simultaneously making the news more noticeable. Useful information about PTO is in every Enews, so we encourage you to take a few minutes each week to scroll through the whole newsletter.
October is a busy month for PTO and we need you—parents and guardians—to volunteer to make all of the events successful. Book Fair has opportunities in the evening and during the day. Wellness Week needs helpers at smoothies and the Great Apple Crunch. Room parents need assistance with Halloween parties, be that helping at the party or providing a donation of food or craft supplies. Hot Lunch can always use more hands (we have been very short this year). Please try and find one way you can pitch in this month or in the near future to make the school the best it can be. Volunteer opportunities can be found HERE .
Looking forward to November, we hope to see you at the St. Giles Trivia Night on Saturday, November 10 at 7pm. Registration has started, so hurry and click HERE to register before seats sell out. Also, our November PTO meeting has shifted two days to accommodate the school's Executive Function workshop. Please join us: Thursday, November 15, at 7pm in the McDonough Conference Room.
As always, we welcome comments and suggestions! Please feel free to reach out to us (our contact information is below, under "PTO Executive Committee"). We want to hear from you.
