COUNTDOWN TO LINDEN GROVE’S AUCTION
Everyone’s participation is needed! We need everyone to participate in this year’s fundraising event in order to continue to provide quality services and programs to our amazing children.
Listed below are each family’s minimum goals:
• Donate a basket to our signature auction event – Value $100 – $150
• Sell 10 vacation raffle tickets
• Invite friends to the LGS’s Signature Auction Event
• Collect Gift certificates (restaurants, salons, & addition items for basket making)
• Event Sponsorship – Think of personal and professional relationships that you have with individuals or businesses who would feel rewarded by supporting your child’s education.
Sponsorship and Solicitation letters were emailed to all families last week. If you need extras, you may get them on the wall file by the parent info board. After the Thanksgiving break, a “Basket Theme” signup sheet will be posted on the parent info board. Please mark next to your family’s name the theme of your basket. All family basket themes need to be listed on the sign-up sheet by December 19th. Don’t forget to talk up our fundraising event during your family gatherings.
Fundraising Here We Come!
School picture retakes will be done here at LGS on November 17th starting at 9:00am. If you would like to have your child(ren)’s picture retaken please let Elizabeth Ewers know by Friday November 14th.
Next Friday November 21st is pizza and spirit day. Pizza is served to the students during their lunch time. Students do not need to pack a lunch on this day; however, please send a drink in with your child. The spirit theme for this month is silly socks or tights.
Please send your prospective donor information into Shawn Scott by November 12th. If you have any questions contact Shawn Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Winter Weather Outdoor Recess
During the colder months, our policy is that the children will have recess outside as long as the temperature is 25 degrees (including the wind chill) or above and the weather is not inclement. The decision to go outside or stay in for recess is made on a daily basis. Because of this, all students should be prepared to go outside for recess every day. Please make sure that your child has appropriate clothing (jacket/hat/gloves/scarf/etc.) to play outside. It is recommended that you put your child’s name or initials somewhere on these articles of clothing as they can be easily misplaced. If the decision is made to have outdoor recess, all students will have to go outside. Not having the appropriate clothing is not a reason to stay inside. Please make sure your child understands this rule if they insist on wearing non-traditional winter clothing to school. If you any questions, please contact Elizabeth Ewers.
