A big THANK YOU to everyone who volunteered at the Halloween party on Friday. We had great attendance and the kids really enjoyed the party!
Thanks to those that attended our PTA meeting last Wednesday. The minutes are posted on the PTA website for reference.
The fall fundraiser has started! You should have received the flyers and KidStuff coupon book in backpack mail last week. The PTA funds many programs throughout the year including field trips, assemblies, classroom supplies, accelerated reading program, Field Day and so much more! To support these programs we hope to raise $10,000 with our Fall Fundraiser. There are two ways you can help us reach our goal:
1) Selling $25 KidStuff coupon books where 50% of each sale benefits the PTA. The savings generated from the book and App should easily exceed your purchase cost, so you can save money while helping the PTA!
2) Making a tax deductible donation the PTA where 100% of the money will support our programs.
Please send your donation and/or KidStuff coupon book payment by November 7th. You are also able to sell additional books to family members, friends, and neighbors. If you will not be purchasing/selling the coupon book, you should return the book to the teacher by the date. Contact Kathy Holmes at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.

The PTA is hosting dinner for the teachers before the evening Parent-Teacher conferences on Thursday, November 1. We are looking for volunteers to help with the set up and clean up, as well as donations for the meal. Please consider helping out and sign up today by using the link below.

Donuts with Dad is scheduled for Nov 9th from 8-8:45am. Flyers will be going out this week. Due to the close proximity to Veterans Day, there will also be a donation box to accept food donations for Packages 4 Patriots.
The Cowlishaw Book Fair is here again! Book Fair is getting started from October 29 - November 7 and we need your help to make it a success! We need volunteers for set up, preview, sales, and tear down. Remember, proceeds from all sales go right back to the LMC for new books and materials. Sign up to volunteer using the link below.
