The PTA is looking for VOLUNTEERS!!!

With the holiday season approaching, the PTA is in need of volunteers to help at some of our events. 
The Breakfast with Santa will be held on December 11, 2010 from 9-11 am.  This is the 2nd year for this fun event.  Volunteers are needed to work the door taking tickets, to work at the santa shop by  helping the little ones shop and to help with the breakfast itself by serving and helping in the kitchen.  
The Holiday Shop will be December 13-17 and we are looking for volunteers to work the shop during school hours.  Please email Chris Gillespie @ if you would like to help out.  Make sure to include the day(s) you are available and the times as well.  
Our Market Day Chair is looking for volunteers to help make pickup reminder calls to our customers and to help out on pickup night.  Each of these would be 1 time per month.  The phone calls usually take less than 30 minutes and the pickup nights are about 2 hours or whatever you are available.
In December, the PTA would like to make a donation to a local charity.  The holiday season is a time of great need for many and we’d like to give back a little something.  To make this a fun and exciting event for our students, we would like to have a contest to encourage participation in donations.  WE ARE NOT ASKING YOU TO GET YOUR CHECK BOOK OUT!!!!  What we would like to do is collect CHANGE – pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters – even dollars if you would like.  During the week of December 13-17, there will be jugs in the cafeteria for students to drop their change in – each grade will have their own jug as well as the office staff.  The teachers from the grade level (or office staff) that collects the most money during the week will SING CHRISTMAS CAROLS to the students during lunch on December 22!!  The winner of the contest will be announced Monday, December 20.
We need your help getting this started – we would like to know your favorite local charity.  Once we have a list, we will take the top 5 or 6 and the winning group from the contest will decide which charity we give the money to.  We hope this will be a fun way to show our families how much rewarding and fun it is to give something back!
