PTA Update February 5-9

Please remember, there is an Early Release this Friday, February 9.  There is also Saturday school for Tracks 1,2 & 3 this Saturday, February 10.  This weekly update will help to keep you informed about PTA activities and volunteer opportunities. 

Announcements:

1- The PTA needs your help to fill raffle baskets for the Spring Carnival.  A flyer with all the details was sent home with each student.  You can also find information on the PTA website, www.adamspta.org.  Each grade is assigned a theme for their basket and the grade that has the most raffle tickets bought for their basket will win a surprise at recess.

2- Please join us at Bond Brothers Brewery for a PTA Social!  On Thursday, February 15th from 7-9pm, the PTA is heading to Bond Brothers, 202 E. Cedar St, Cary.  All parents are welcome to come have fun, socialize and meet each other.

3- The PTA is encouraging our members to wear red every Wednesday in support of public education.

4- The PTA Spring Fundraiser will take place February 5-16.  This year we are raising money for the purchase of new iPads.  Instead of Boosterthon or selling any type of item, we are simply asking for parents, grandparents and friends of Adams to send in donations.  All donations to the PTA are tax deductible.  More information will be sent home on February 5 (or February 12 for Track 3).

5- Mark your calendar for the Spring Carnival which will take place on Saturday, March 17.  More details to come!

6- The PTA is hosting an Early Release Lunch for our teachers and staff this Friday, February, 9.  We are bringing in Ole Time BBQ for them and would appreciate donations of desserts and someone to help with set-up and clean-up.  Please use the sign-up genius to sign up for this event: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090f4da5aa2caa8-teacher4
