Save the Carnival!

 We need a co-chair volunteer to help organize and run the annual Carnival, otherwise the June 5th event may be heavily downsized or even canceled. That would mean the loss of our beloved community event to celebrate the school year (Inflatables! Entertainers! Food! Games!) and also the mini auction which last year raised over $4000. Those funds are much needed so the PTA can continue to provide student programs and supplies. If you enjoy planning events and see them come to life, this is the perfect thing for you to help take on. You will work as a team and will receive much support and guidance from the PTA Board.

 Please email thoreauPTAboard@outlook.com today!

I LOVE MY SCHOOL BOX TOP SWEEPSTAKES!

From Feb 3rd through March 3rd   https://www.boxtops4education.com/

Have you downloaded the Box Tops app yet? This is the time!

Scan your receipt on the Box Tops app for a chance to win 5,000 Bonus Box Tops for your school. Each Box Top collected is worth 10...so that's an extra $500! This literally takes a couple minutes to scan into the app to help raise funds for Thoreau.

Each Box Top will do two things...1) earn Thoreau more money right away and 2) enter Thoreau into this sweepstakes! If you have box tops you've cut from products, those can be brought into the office, or sent in with your kids to be put in the PTA mailbox.

Come exchange and purchase books during the school day! Yee-hah! Each year Thoreau PTA hosts the Book Rodeo event. Books are collected from Thoreau families in exchange for “book bucks” over the course of 2-4 weeks prior to the Rodeo. On the day of the event all the books are made available to the students for purchase using the book bucks they earned! This is a fun and inexpensive way for students to recycle old books and “buy” new books on their own
