*Friendly’s is hosting another Fundraising Night for the Nitrauer PTO next Tuesday, December 12th from 5-8 pm. During this time 10% of all sales will be donated to our PTO.  See December Friendlys Flyer for more information.

*Please see 11-28-17 PTO Meeting Minutes for last week’s 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.

*Nitrauer Elementary will be collecting items for the Library System of Lancaster County’s 18th Annual Mitten Tree Project.  Please consider donating NEW & unwrapped mittens, gloves, scarves, umbrellas, &/or earmuffs.  All items will be distributed by Lancaster County’s Children & youth Social Service Agency to children in our local library communities.  Items will be collected through Thursday, December 14th.

*We will have Book Nook Wednesday, December 20th, so get ready.  Please keep up the good work with your wonderful donations.  The kids really have a good time picking and purchasing books on their own.   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

*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
