PTO Notes

1) Have you enjoyed the Kitchen Tour in the past?  Are you looking for a way to get involved in a local fundraiser?  This is a huge fundraiser for the PTO that is entirely volunteer run!  We need a group willing to take on the tour this year and time is running out to get the wheels in motion.  Please reach out if you would be wiling to help out!  The team who has run this event in the past has a wealth of knowledge to pass along!
2) Do you remember the After School Enrichment Program?  We are excited to announce that we are going to be bringing it back for the late winter.... but we need instructors!  Do you like to help kids with crafts?  Love to play board games?  How about starting a book club for kids?  We do provide a stipend for instructors as well!  Let us know if you have any ideas and would like to help! 
3) Support the Fun Run and your PTO!  Did you know that this fundraiser generates the funds that are used throughout the year for field trip busses, assembly costs, and other requests that come up throughout the year?  Last year these requests included snacks for the nurses office, new recess equipment, and a scholarship for an 8th grader to attend the Washington DC field trip!  Boosterthon starts this week at both the Bresnahan and Molin schools!   We’ve chosen to partner with Booster again this year because of the full service option they provide as well as the customizable experience. Each day of the program, they are good role models for our students on campus, spreading positivity and enthusiasm as they take care of all the program logistics and help teachers and staff throughout the day. Each day students learn about a way they can have legendary character!
Based on feedback from the Bresnahan community over the past two years, we have moved to a community prize model! This means that classes work together to earn prizes, instead of individual students earning prizes as we have in the past.
4)  Cleaning out?  Throw your New Year’s clean-out goods like old blankets, clothing that’s too poor of shape to donate, worn out snow boots and slippers, ripped hats, scarves and mittens, and STUFFED ANIMALS into the bins and keep them out of landfills. Earns the PTO a good chunk of change every quarter too!
5) Organizing all those pictures from the holidays?  Use the PTO's Shutterfly link and we get a portion of your order!
