Does anyone have a paid Zoom account that the PTA could use this year? We're planning to hold in-person meetings while allowing those who can't attend in person to attend via Zoom, and a paid account will allow us to extend beyond 40 minutes. Our meetings are typically an hour plus some gab time :-) Thanks!

The PTA needs some help printing membership flyers (using the copier and yellow paper at school) and then counting out the flyers needed for each classroom. Would anyone have time to do them before Friday afternoon so they can be sent home to families on Tuesday?

The front office will provide the exact # of copies needed.

Wishing everyone a wonderful start to the 2021-2022 school year tomorrow! Kindergarten and first grade parents, please join us in the cafeteria for our "Tears and Cheers" event, immediately following the start of the school day.

Twas the night before school started
When all through the town
The parents were cheering
It was a riotous sound.
By eight the kids were washed
And tucked into bed
When memories of homework
Filled them with dread.
New pencils, new folders, new notebooks too,
New teachers, new friends, the anxiety grew.
The parents just giggled when they heard of this fright and shouted upstairs-
GO TO BED-IT'S A SCHOOL NIGHT!

Last minute need for a volunteer!

We are in need of one volunteer to help on the PES playground from 5-6 pm TONIGHT!

The volunteer will chat with rising kindergarten and 1st grade parents, and most importantly, be on hand to cut the tops off popsicles, and hand out popsicles and paper towels to our newest students. We have one volunteer scheduled (our other one had a work conflict come up) but the job is MUCH easier with a second person!

We are looking for contact information for the Cub Scout troop based at Providence for our current kindergartener to join next year (1st grade). If anyone can provide us a contact we would appreciate it. Our children go to Navy Elementary (people placed), but we want to do scouts in the local neighborhood. We missing the ability to connect at open house, please PM me if you have a lead. The Boy Scout website doesn’t list a Providence troop.
