PTO UPDATES SEPTEMBER 18TH 2017

 

PTO Dues – Exciting new change this year!

 

2017-2018 PTO MEMBERSHIP DUES

 

There are no fundraisers throughout the year.

This is the only contribution you will be asked to make to support the school.

                                                          

1 Payment of $50 per family now makes your school year hassle free!!

PTO Dues will now include your Classroom party money, May Day wrist band and Student Directory!

 

Membership dues make everything possible at Lynnewood –

Assemblies, Young Writers Day, Talent Show, Community Service Events and May Day just to name a few!

Without the financial support from every family the PTO would be unable to

fund these events for the Lynnewood children!

 

There are 2 ways to pay this year!

 

* Payment Option 1: Pay online Paying online is much easier for our volunteers and     cuts down significantly on the time to process the dues that come in. Please consider    using this option. Pay at www.lynnewoodfamilies.org

 

* Payment Option 2: Check – Send payment to school with your child to be given to their teacher. Write your child’s name and grade on a slip

of paper and put in an envelope marked PTO Dues. Make check payable to Lynnewood PTO.

HELP! Art in the Classroom needs volunteers!!

Art in the Classroom volunteers are still needed in the following classrooms:

Wilson AM K

Wibbens 3

Gagat 5

Gordy 5

McCann 5

Art in the Classroom is a fantastic and fun program that allows you the opportunity to interact with your child and their classmates in a meaningful and productive way.

Volunteers spend about 30 minutes to 1 hour per month planning and teaching a short lesson about a famous artist and presenting it to the kids in their classroom. Information on the artist and related activities is provided. Scheduling is flexible.

The kids really enjoy this classroom “extra”, Please consider helping out with this program.
