*Please see September 2019 Meeting Minutes for the minutes from our September PTO meeting.  Our next meeting will be Tuesday, October 15th at 7pm.  We hope you can join us!

*We are very excited to have Rosemary Wells visit our school from October 15th – 17th this year as an Author in Residence for our students.  She will be meeting with each grade level two times to discuss and share her process and inspiration for having published more than 120 books. Rosemary has a wealth of knowledge with the writing process and is excited to share her experiences with our students.

Parent volunteers are needed to act as her host on the days she is here.  Here is the link to volunteer:  Volunteer Sign Up.  Once you have signed up, Mrs. Canady, our school Librarian, will contact you prior to the event and ensure that you have everything you need.  Thank you in advance for your consideration!

We are also interested in having a luncheon provided by the PTO on Thursday, October 17th in the faculty room.  Items should be brought to the Nitrauer office between 9:30 and 10:00 on October 17th.  Here’s the link: Luncheon Sign Up to sign up to provide items for the luncheon.  Please indicate which item you are providing in the Signup Genius comment section so that we get a variety.
