Friday, December 21st – Early Dismissal at 1:40pm


*Thank you to all who joined us at the Fundraising Night for the Nitrauer PTO at Friendly’s last week!

*Last week’s Book Nook was so great.  The kids really enjoyed shopping for a book and seeing their friends find joy in getting a book that they may have donated.  The next Book Nook will be in February.  Thank you to Laura McCamant & Sheryl DePanfilis for organizing this project!  If you have questions or would like to volunteer to sort or help out on Nook days, please email Laura at

*Book Nook DonationsWe are thrilled at the number of wonderful books pouring in so keep up the good work.  Please only donate K-4 appropriate books.   We have volunteers spending hours sorting and organizing books.  Thanks so much volunteers! Unfortunately, we  CANNOT use young board books, baby books, adult level books or damaged books (water or mold), and it is a process to weed/dispose properly from the growing collection of awesome books that the children have brought us.  Please do not send anything but age appropriate K-4 books.  For examples of what would be considered age appropriate, use Scholastic books flyers or your scholastic website as a reference.  Books can be dropped off in the office.  THANKS families!

*Nitrauer Elementary will be collecting items for Lancaster County’s Library System’s 19th Annual Mitten Tree Project.  You may donate NEW and unwrapped mittens, gloves, scarves, umbrellas, and/or earmuffs.  Donations can be made through Friday, December 21st.

* Due to popular demand, we are offering a SECOND round of spiritwear ordering for anyone who missed out.  Orders can be placed at Online Spirit Wear Orders or via paper (Nitrauer Knights Spirit Wear).  We will be closing all ordering, paper & online, Tuesday, January 8th.

*Mark your calendars for our annual Family Bingo Night on Friday, January 15th (snowdate 1/25/18)!  Look for a sign-up sheet when we return from our holiday break.
