* Thank you to all who joined us at Friendly’s earlier this week for the PTO Fundraising Night.  It was great to see so many students and families!  Our final Fundraising Night for this school year will be Thursday, April 5th.

* Thank you to all who donated items for the Library System of Lancaster County’s Annual Mitten Tree Project!

*Please see 11-28-17 PTO Meeting Minutes for the recent PTO meeting minutes.  The PTO bylaws have been updated.  See Nitrauer Elementary School PTO Bylaws (Revised 11/28/2017) for the updated bylaws.  The PTO will not meet in December.  Our next PTO meeting will be Tuesday, January 16th at 7pm.

*Book Nook is next Wednesday, December 20th!  Please keep up the good work with your wonderful donations.  The kids really have a good time picking and purchasing books on their own.   Students may purchase up to 2 books.  Soft cover books are $.25 and hard cover books are $.50.  Book contributions can be dropped off in the book box located in the school office.   If you want to volunteer, please email Laura McCamant at

*Mark your calendars for our annual Family Bingo Night on Friday, January 19th (snowdate 1/26/18)!  Look for a sign-up sheet when we return from our holiday break.

*Junior Achievement (JA) relates what our students are already learning in school to real-life situations.  Many classrooms are in need of a JA volunteer this year to teach 5 classroom sessions lasting 30-45 minutes each.  JA provides all the training and the materials needed.  See JA Question and Answer Handout for more information.  Please consider helping to fill this need.  Contact Joanne Badger, Program Manager, at with any questions as well as to volunteer.

* Do you have any pictures of Nitrauer events?  If so, please email them to for possible entry in this year’s yearbook. If you have any questions, contact Diana at
