February PTO Meeting
Apple Giving Trees are Ripe for the Picking!
If you would like to participate, you may remove an apple from the tree and send the selected gift, with the paper apple ornament attached, to school with your child. If you are unable to make it to the school during the busy holiday season, you could send a note with your child to school allowing your child to take an apple off the tree and bring it home. Participation is completely voluntary. For questions, please contact Misty Cremers at 839.7471 or email@example.com.
Thank you for supporting our Pillager Elementary teachers!
Project iPad: Mission Complete!
This has been the largest initiative the Pillager PTO has taken on, and we are so grateful to our very generous community for making this happen in just four short months! A huge THANK YOU to everyone who donated to this effort or participated in one of our many fundraisers. You each truly helped make a great school even better!
Box Tops Challenge
And if you're in any doubt that these Box Tops really can make a difference to the school, check out these numbers:
If every student in Early Childhood and Elementary brought in 1 box top a day that would turn into approximately $265 a week or $9,810 a year! Can you imagine what we could earn if more were brought in?!
Thank you for supporting Pillager Schools!
