What a beautiful weekend! It is funny how we often say how hot it is the first few days it hits 80 degrees. But we all know, the real heat will be here soon. We all adjust and make it work.
This weekend was full of many games for the Brooks. We lucked out and the games were back to back. The good news is that we could see the games of all of our three kids. The bad news is that Saturday was 11:30-6:30 and Sunday 11am-5pm. Truthfully, it is not bad news at all. We love it! And I know that all of you can relate. This is a season in life that often feels tough, but man, we will miss it when it is gone.
St. Jude's Children's Hospitals Fundraiser is coming up!
Stoneridge Student Leadership Club, the "LEADERS of the P.A.C.K.," invite Stoneridge families to help us reach our goal of raising $3,500 for St. Jude’s Childrens’ Hospitals, which help to cure all types of childhood cancer.
Money that our school raises will help ensure that no family ever pays for anything at St. Jude’s. Our donations will help save lives!
Between April 20-May 18, children and adults can bring change or bills to their teacher for our collection buckets.
We will also have an amazing crafts booth at the school carnival on May 12, stocked with fun and functional items handmade by us!
All profits will go to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospitals. Please donate, and while at the carnival, buy some fun and fashionable items! Every penny counts!
April Meeting Notes:
By a unanimous 2022-23 Board Member vote, the following 2023/24 New Board was voted in on Thursday. We will continue to search for VP of Events & VP of Fundraising and are excited to provide you another list of Board Positions & Chair Leads/Positions with descriptions and time commitments like the teachers requested in a PDF attached here. Thank you SO much for promoting this ASAP and as positions get filled, I'll narrow the list down with the volunteer names and positions still needed. The goal is to keep promoting unfilled positions to get people in place for Janine, David, and Stefanie before the end of the school year and so the current board can cross train and get them all set up. The current board also offered to help over the summer with them and the new Principal to make this transition the best we can. With all that said, another CONGRATULATIONS Janine, David & Stefanie!
For the May meeting we'll have their Bio's and a PDF for the teachers to send to parents introducing the new board and other chair leads too!
Lunch Help: May is just around the corner. We love your help at lunch and appreciate how many of you have been willing to help. Sign up here for May: May Lunch Help New PTC Board is looking to recruit volunteers for events and positions now before next year.
