We would like to send a HUGE THANK YOU to Katrina and Sebastian Maniscalco (Ivy Hill parents) and Al’s Restaurant in Cicero for donating the wonderful dinner for our teachers during the Monday night conferences. The food was excellent and enjoyed by all!!
Getting ready for summer? Getting rid of the old T-shirts and shorts? Family & Community Involvement is hosting a “T-Shirt & Shorts” Drive April 23 – 27th for Journeys from PADS to HOPE. The Journeys from PADS to HOPE organization helps homeless people in the Cook County area. In the NW Suburbs alone, there are 1,200 homeless people accessing shelters with approximately 400 additional homeless people residing on streets, in cars and throughout forest preserves. These people can use our help this summer! They are in need of gently used summer clothing for both children and adults. Collection boxes can be found in the commons April 23-27th. THANK YOU in advance!
Deadline for online School and PTA Registration is April 1st! Here are some tips to make PTA registration easier:
1) If you are including a Budget Booster, please fill in the amount online and include the amount in your check to Ivy Hill PTA.
2) Be sure to print out your confirmation statement before exiting the registration process and enclose with your check to Ivy Hill PTA.
3) Write the student’s name and grade for 2012-2013 school year to the confirmation statement (include all children in family). Also write the type of membership on the confirmation statement.
4) There is NO CONVENIENCE FEE for online registration, so ignore this when you see it.
5) If you want to join ABC/25 Foundation, be sure to write a separate check for that and place in the ABC/25 basket in the front office.
If you have any questions about this new PTA membership process or about PTA in general, please contact Monica Barba (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Cassy Mrowicki (email@example.com). Thanks for your support!!
Just Move it! Challenge Pre-Registration Deadline April 6th!

Either way, Just Move it!
