DID YOU KNOW BY PTO?
Our final event of the year is to assist with field day. Our field day/picnic lunch takes place in the fields north of our school building. On a sunny day, it gets VERY hot. We found last year that it helped to provide some shade. If you have one of those canopy tents and you would like to allow PTO to borrow it, we would love to fill the field with a “TENT CITY”. After dropping off your kids, feel free to find a spot in the field for your tent. Please set up tents by 9:00 AM, as PTO has other responsibilities that day that we need to cover. We ask that you set up the tents, but some of us will be outside to help you. We do ask that you find your tent at the end of the day and take it down.
Exciting news for field day/ picnic lunch! Marcos pizza has agreed to run a spirit day and donate some money back to our school. If pizza lunch sounds good (and easy) see the flyer below. You can order online to make life easier. Please see the flyer for specifics. They will be open for pick up at 10:00. YOU MUST ORDER AND PICK UP YOUR OWN PIZZA. PTO will not be bringing the pizzas to school for you. Be sure to mention SMG when ordering by phone or use the fundraising tab when ordering online.
Thanks to everyone who has supported PTO’s Scrip gift card fundraising program this school year! We’ve raised funds for numerous activities and ask that you continue to buy Scrip for your shopping needs during summer break. As an incentive, any family that purchases $300 in gift cards and pays your book bill by August 5th will learn your students’ homeroom/teacher assignments early (August 5th). You may purchase Scrip after masses throughout the summer, and in the school office in June from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon, and on August 5th when the office reopens. Please note that you do not have to purchase the $300 in gift cards all at once. You can buy them throughout the summer and your total will be tracked. See attached flyer.
As we are getting close to the end of this school year, now is a good time to start thinking about getting ready for next school year before you get caught up in all your fun summer activities.
Getting everything ready for the first day of a new school year can be stressful. Something you can control is giving your child the exact supplies next year’s teachers have requested from their school supply lists. This is a great way for your child to start the school year with confidence and it will help our teachers tremendously.
You can shop for your own supplies with the list we provide, but I have found that to be time-consuming, a hassle, and you end up spending just as much or more money. I encourage you to use 1st Day School Supplies. We have partnered with them to provide you the exact school supplies you need for next year. Plus it is a fundraiser for our school! All you have to do is order online and the kits will be delivered to your child’s classroom before the 1st day! The order deadline is June 15th.
This is a great way to have your child start the school year with confidence and it will give you an extra day of summer before the school year starts. Our teachers will love you for it as well.
If you have any questions at all, please contact me at email@example.com.

Please make your doctor appointments now to fill out all orders for inhalers, EpiPens, etc. for the next school year. Any medications left after the last day of school will be thrown away.
