PARENT TEACHER ASSOCIATION (PTA)
PICTURE DAY is on Monday September 8th! All students will be photographed for class pictures and yearbook portraits. You should have already received your pre-pay envelope and order form. Every student who is ordering pictures must have their envelope filled out completely. A separate check will need to be written for each student ordering pictures and the envelopes need to be returned to school by Monday, September 8th. Only those students who have returned their money in the envelope will be able to order pictures. There is an option to pay by credit card online. Please see your order form for more information. There will be a picture retake day for students who are absent on Picture Day. Questions? Contact Jen Talley (2006Talley@gmail.com)

KidStuff Coupon book: Thanks to all who have participated so far in the PTA’s KidStuff Coupon Book fundraiser! A KidStuff Coupon Book (and more details about the fundraiser) was given to each Ivy Hill student last week. Please look through the coupon book — it has lots of great coupons!! The book cost only $25. If you use the coupons, you’ll easily pay for the cost of the book (and more!) and our PTA will earn a 50% profit on each book we sell!! This fundraiser is optional, but we hope you will consider participating and benefiting the students of Ivy Hill School!!! You can also buy/order extra for grandparents, family, & friends! And there are even editions of the book that can be ordered for other geographical areas (see the order envelope for more details). For every 5 books you buy/sell, you receive an additional book for free!! If you decide to purchase any coupon books, please send your order envelope and payment to school. Orders are due Friday, September 12th. If you do not wish to purchase the coupon book that your child received, please remember to send the book back to school with your child. Thanks! For questions about the fundraiser, contact Carla Kim, firstname.lastname@example.org or Lynn Feder, email@example.com.
