PENGUIN PATCH HOLIDAY SHOP - WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Penguin Patch Holiday Shop is happening this week - but we need more volunteers to make sure that the event runs smoothly! We have quite a few classes shopping on Tuesday in particular - a few more 'helping hands' are needed, especially for the younger students who will need help figuring out what they can purchase within their budget. The volunteers who signed up last year LOVED helping the children pick out gifts for their families! Please consider volunteering just a few hours of your time and sign up using the link below, or contact Julie Sterzinger (jasterzinger@gmail.com) with your availability and we will fit you in!

SCIENCE FAIR

Save the date for the Science Fair on Feb 22, 2019! We are looking for 1-2 volunteers from each grade level to be on the planning committee. If you are interested in being on the committee, helping to set up, and/or be a judge at the Science Fair, please contactanicadubey@yahoo.com.



FALL FUNDRAISER

The fall fundraiser has concluded and we still have many KidStuff coupon books/payments outstanding. If you do not wish to purchase the coupon book sent home, the book must be returned to school this week. If you would like to purchase the book, the $25 payment (payable to Cowshaw PTA) must be returned this week. We are also still accepting cash donations if you would like to make a tax-deductible donation before the end of the year. Please contact Kathy Holmes at katholmes@deloitte.com with any questions.



VOLUNTEERS AND OPEN CHAIR POSITIONS

We still have some open chair positions for the 2018-2019 school year listed below:



Fundraising Chair
Spring Party Chair
Office Liaison (Tardy Slips)


If we don’t get volunteers, we will not be able to have these programs for the children this year. If you are interested in any of these or would like further information, please reach out to either Michelle McCorkle at mmccorkle@deloitte.com or Ashley Williams atAWIGGINS@alumni.ecu.edu.
