Support the PTO while you shop at Amazon

As you shop this holiday season (and all year long, really), please consider using the Amazon Smile service to support the PTO. It doesn’t cost you a thing, and Amazon will send the PTO 0.5% of the purchase price to our organization.

Volunteers Still Needed for Cookie Exchange

Just a reminder that the Cookie Exchange is on the 16th and we still need a lot of volunteers to bring in cookies. You can either make them or buy them. We have about half the number we need.

These treats are for staff only and are kept in the staff room at all times, so strict adherence to allergen concerns is not necessary.

Please consider volunteering to bring 3 dozen treats on December 16th at 8:30 a.m.
