From the Principal’s Desk:
Mark your calendars – May 1st! All families will have the opportunity to complete the registration process for the 2013 – 2014 school year online as well as joining the Ivy Hill PTA and ABC25. We encourage all of our families to join the PTA, complete the PTA page when you are registering online and consider making a Budget Booster donation to assist with our fundraising efforts for next year. We are looking forward to another successful and fun-filled year and welcoming back our current members and meeting new members!
It’s time to start thinking about SCHOOL SUPPLIES for the 2013-2014 school year! Order your school supplies online only at www.shopttkits.com. Enter 1249 for school account number. Deadline for ordering is Friday, May 10, 2013. No hard copy forms will be accepted! Any questions, contact Cindy Stefani at 847-392-1962. Please note that this is not a fundraiser. The school PTA has organized this as a convenient and hassle free way to purchase school supplies. Supplies will be delivered to the classrooms ready for first day of classes.
We are currently looking for PTA members to chair the following committees for the 2013 – 2014 school year: Education Fair, Environmental Awareness, Fun Fair, Newsletter Editor, Safety Patrol and Video Production for next school year. The online questionnaire provides a brief description of the general duties for each committee, feel free to contact the current committee chair for each committee if you have specific questions. Requests can be submitted via our online survey: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?fromEmail=true&formkey=dG56dWp2aUZTUlpwVGNRVHdTUS1UVXc6MA; we will try to accommodate each request. Thank you in advance for your ongoing support!
