We encourage all parents to be involved in their child's education, including supporting the Maidu PTC. All parents are members of the PTC. We would love to see you at our next meeting.
Volunteers Needed to Make Posters for Staff Appreciation WeekTop of Page
Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week is May 1st - 5th. PTC is in looking for volunteers to create posters for staff. Room parents will coordinate creating posters for their teacher, but we are in need of parents to sign up to make posters for remaining staff.
Poster board, construction paper, and die cuts (a wide variety of shapes and letters) are available in the workroom in the front office. I am happy to show you where if needed. You can use die cuts, printed out paper messages glued to the poster board, candy bar messages attached to poster board - anything you want to create the posters. Pinterest is a great place to search for ideas.
If you sign up to create a poster, please also hang up the poster in the designated area on Monday, May 1st. If you can make posters, but aren't available to hang them up on Monday, please let Ann Marie Perozzi know (firstname.lastname@example.org) and she can hang them.
The dates and activities for Staff Appreciation Week are as follows:
Monday 5/1: Room parents will decorate the inside of their classroom’s door. Students can bring a flower for their teacher. You may need to provide a vase.
Wednesday 5/3: “Words from the heart”- Have your child write a nice note or draw a picture for the teacher to tell them all the things that make them so special! Also, have your child wear their teacher’s favorite color.
PTC Staff Appreciation Committee is providing a special treat for Maidu staff on this day.
Friday 5/5: Bring your teacher a treat or new school supplies for the classroom.
PTC Staff Appreciation Committee is providing a delicious luncheon for the staff on this day as well!
These are suggested guidelines, please feel free to tweak, twist or do something different. Also note, room parents are in charge of coordinating activities and disseminating information.
Thank you in advance for everyone’s help to make this a SPECIAL week for our AMAZING staff at Maidu! Let’s also make the aides and office staff feel special!
Maidu PTC is looking for volunteers to help run our very first Buy One - Get One Free Book Fair. The Fair will run from Monday, 4/24 through Friday, 4/28 and will include special hours during Open House on Thursday, 4/27.
PTC is also looking for parents to provide a meal for teachers before Open House. Many teachers do not make it home once the school day ends and they work right through to Open House.
If you have any questions, please direct them to Sarah Massaro, Book Fair Coordinator at email@example.com
Amazon Smile and Raley's Script Coordinator NeededTop of Page
November 18, 2016
Maidu PTC is looking for a volunteer to coordinate the Amazon Smile and Raley's script programs. These programs will donate money back to our PTC for purchases made by families enrolled in these programs. As the coordinator you will be a resource for answering questions that come up about the programs, such as, Are there Apps? Can you still get Amazon Prime Points if you use Amazon Smile? You will also create blurbs for eWed Blasts to disseminate information to families on how they can sign-up and to answer questions. These two programs are great opportunities for our PTC to passively earn income that will go directly to supporting students and staff here at Maidu. Any questions please ask Becky Van Velzer or email her at maiduPTC@gmail.com.
The running of the Mustangs took place on Friday, October 14, 2016.
Many have asked, "Is it too late to return our student's pledge envelope?" Our answer is NOT AT ALL, it's never too late but we do need them back as soon as possible. We have only received approximately 40% of all of the Jog-a-thon Pledge Envelopes that were sent home. This creates a huge void in our fundraising efforts and a gap in being able to fund the programs and projects MPTC has planned for this year. Did you know that every dollar our students bring in stays in our school for their benefit? That is amazing when compared to other traditional fundraisers such as wrapping paper, candy bar and cookie dough sales, or magazine and coupon book orders. With those types of fundraisers, the school receives only a portion of what families spend. Jog-a- thon is completely parent volunteer run so every dollar goes to our students! If you were one of the many family members who attended on Jog-a-thon day, you saw how hard our kids worked for their school. Lets not let them down!
Please remember to send in the pledge envelopes or you can donate using a credit card through the PayPal link provided on the MPTC Jog-a-thon event page.
