Wish List – Spotlight on Pedometers

The PE dept is looking to replace some of their older pedometers, but they need our help! A classroom set of pedometers is a big purchase so we are combining money from family donations and general PTO funds.

If you’d like to help, you can donate any amount toward the purchase of new pedometers at chavezwishlist.cheddarup.com.

Fun Fair Preview

March 7, 10 AM-2 PM
The Fun Fair features carnival games, face painting, food, and fun for the whole family. To make the fair a success, we’ll be asking for the following donations in February: 

  • 2 Liter Bottles of Soda, juice, etc.
  • Cookies, cakes, and treats for the Cake Walk. New this year – we’re also including boxes of cereal. Home baked or store bought goodies are welcome.

We’ll open volunteer slots the first week of February. Sign up for a slot or two with your child to keep the fun going! Please contact me at president@chavezpto.org if you’re interested in helping us finalize the fair plans.

Keep clipping and scanning your box tops and receipts. Each box top is worth 10 cents for our school. You can send your paper box tops to your child’s teacher and they’ll put the box tops in our drop box.
