We are extending the Chick-Fil-A Pre-Sale ONE MORE DAY! Please get your orders in tomorrow, Wednesday, November 30. This is a great way to get Chick-Fil-A without driving to a restaurant! $12 gets you a sandwich, bag of chips, cookie, and a water. The pick-up location will be at Zone Out Sports from 11-1 on Saturday.
Due to a mix up on the specials schedule, (no fault of the PTO committee heads who are in charge), I need to let you know that your child will shop in Santa's workshop on the day that they have Mr. Pyle for PE the week we return from Thanksgiving Break. The day on the letter is incorrect. Sorry for the confusion.
We are extending the calendar playground fundraiser until Friday. Reminder, we are accepting all calendars no matter how many days are filled:) Please send the money and calendars to school by this Friday 11/4.
School Picture Day is tomorrow. You can order by sending in the payment tomorrow with the order form or order online by going go www.strawbridge.net and enter this code FM391028
Congratulations to Mrs. Douglas' Class for being the first class to have all parents pay their $5.00 to join the PTO. They won first place in the PTO Membership Drive and will be treated to a popsicle party! Mrs. Painter's and Mrs. Johnson's classes tied for second place and will also get a popsicle party. It is not too late for the remaining classes. Any class who reaches 100% membership can still win a party. The deadline is tomorrow 9/22/22. Joining the PTO does not obligate you to volunteer in any way.
Just a reminder that our school is no longer eligible for free breakfasts and lunches. You are welcome to fill out an individual application for free or reduced meals. The applications are online on the PCS website. Meal prices are $1.45 for breakfast and $1.90 for lunch. Meals will be charged to your child's account and you will receive a monthly bill. If you would like milk for your cold lunch, it is .35 cents and is paid in cash. Thank you and have a great evening!
Good evening WTE families, We would like to take this opportunity to invite everyone to Open House on Monday evening from 4-6pm.

Kindergarten teachers will be outside to meet their students. Thank you for your cooperation and we look forward to seeing you soon! Reminder that doors open at 6:50am and school begins at 7:25am.
