GIRLS ON THE RUN

5th grade parent Mary Peer is still looking for two coaches for Girls on the Run (a program for 4th and 5th grade girls) -- Tuesday from 4 PM - 5:30 PM and a substitute assistant for each day. If you are interested, you can sign up at GOTRChicago.org. Commitment is one training class, 10 weeks of coaching and a wonderful 5k celebration at the end of the season. Even if you can do part of the season, it would be helpful to allow the program to run.  Please contact Mary Peer (mary.peer@hotmail.com) for more info.

Did you miss our last PTA meeting?  You can find meeting notes here.  Please mark your calendars for our next meeting scheduled for February 15th at 5:30 PM in the cafeteria.

 
 

PTA Teacher Appreciation Program

At the last PTA meeting, we discussed all the wonderful opportunities the teachers are providing for our kids.  Playing on the basketball team, singing in the choir, playing in band, painting a mural, participating in the school play, joining chess club or one of the other many clubs - these activities would not be possible without the extra time and effort our teachers put in.
