*Mix It Up Lunch will be resuming this school year!  The first Mix It Up Lunch will be on Friday, November 15th.  Students consistently identify the cafeteria as a place in their school where divisions are clearly – and sometimes harshly – drawn.  So, every other month we ask students to move out of their comfort zones and connect with someone new over lunch.  Studies have shown that interactions across group lines can help reduce prejudice and when students interact with those who are different from them, biases and misconceptions can fall away.

Nitrauer News — September 23rd

This Week at Nitrauer:

Thursday, September 26th – 6:00-7:30pm – Ice Cream Social (Nitrauer Playground)

Announcements:

*Join us this Thursday, September 26th for Ice Cream Social on the Nitrauer Playground from 6-7:30. There will be popsicles available for any student or child with food allergies.  Just ask for the dairy/peanut free option at the ice cream table.

*The Health Room needs your help!  They are in need of new underwear (sizes 4 & 6 for boys and girls) as well as pants (sizes 7 & 8 for girls).  You can send these items in with your child.

*Picture Day is coming to Nitrauer next Thursday, October 3rd.  Pictures can be ordered using the flyer that was sent home or online at www.mylifetouch.com.  Use the following code if placing your order online: LT319513Q0.

*It was great to have so many parents join us for our first PTO meeting last week.  Our next meeting will be Tuesday, October 15th at 7pm.  Hope to see you there!

*Hopefully, everyone was collecting Box Tops over the summer. You may have noticed some of your usual favorite Box Top products have transitioned into the “digital version” and no longer had a physical Box Top to cut out and turn in, rather an indicator that a Box Top was available by scanning your receipt into the Box Top app. This is super easy to do. Simply download the Box Top app, where you will be able to choose our school, and follow the instructions to scan your receipt. The app will automatically pick up ANY and ALL products eligible for earning and will immediately update our school earnings. Please note there is a time limit on scanning receipts (must be scanned within 14 days). Please see Digital Box Top Info regarding the new digital program for more information and Participating Products for a current list of participating products. You may also contact Allison McCarthy at allisonrmccarthy@comcast.net with any questions.

**Please note: Products that have not yet transitioned and still have the physical Box Top to cut out may still be turned in (as long as they have not expired) AND their receipt may be scanned into the app as well, giving Nitrauer double the earnings!**  The first Box Top Collection will be Friday, October 4th.

*If you have not already done so for this year, please use the following link to complete the form to sign-up for this year’s Nitrauer Student Directory, compiled courtesy of the PTO for the families of students attending Nitrauer: Student Directory Sign-Up.  Please complete the form by September 30th to be included in this year’s directory.

*Friendly’s is hosting a Fun Night (fundraising night) for the Nitrauer PTO on Tuesday, October 15th from 5-8pm.  During this time, 10% of all sales will be donated to our PTO.
