Trading Post, Tuesday, 12/10 during recess
preview items and PRICES
The Trading Post happens 4 times per year and is open during your student's recess. The week of the Trading Post, we post a file on the PTA web site with a list of most of the available items and their costs. Parents can review this list and decide if, and how much money they will send with their child. The inventory includes school supplies, small school-spirit items, and very few small novelty items.
WHERE WE NEED HELP:
Tables with similar-priced items need at least one volunteer. Students carry a sack from table to table. When the student makes a selection, volunteers (you) write the cost on the bag, and keep a running tally as Explorers add items. When they reach their limit, volunteers direct the students to the checkout. Get Involved NOW! Contact Tancy Hileman or Cara Smith to help.
Volunteer Workday Wednesday, 12/11, 9 am - 2 pm
We laminate, cut, color, assemble, copy, and complete other material preparations, that save time for our teachers–so they can spend more time with our students. Future explorers are welcome to come, but we ask that you provide entertainment for them. Grandparents are also welcome to help! Bring your scissors! Come for all or any part of the day.
Contact: Kelly G. or Rachael C. if you have questions.

KINDERGARTEN DISCOVER LEARNING, Friday, 12/13
We need volunteers to help our littlest Explorers as they take their suitcases and passports on a whirlwind tour of China, Israel, Mexico, Sweden and the USA. They'll be visiting each country just as the country is celebrating a special holiday. During their 20 minute visit at each stop, they will learn more about the traditional holiday celebrations, make crafts, and add treasures to their suitcases to bring home! India has been added to the journey, but the teachers will guide the students on this portion of the journey.
Sign up here to be a tour guide while your Explorers and their friends travel around the world. All materials will be provided!
NOTE: Because PTA provides the materials, and this is our first year running the Discover Learning program, we still have preparations! If you want to get more involved, please e-mail Robyn Cade and Mary Ann Glueck.
Yearbooks are $25 until December 31! Get them early!
