COWLISHAW PTA SCIENCE FAIR
We really need help for the science fair on April 20th! We HAVE 100 PROJECTS and need volunteers for Science Fair night. Please sign up to help us in FOLLOWING areas: Science fair check-in, help kids set up their display boards and experiments, and judge the projects in different categories.
No need to be an actual "Science Expert" - we just need adult volunteers to speak with the students about their projects! Questions and Scorecards will be provided for the interviews!

SCHOOL SUPPLY KITS
Last year there were issues with the school supply kit vendor delivering the supplies to our students on time. As such, we have contracted with a new company, Carlson School Kits, for next year’s delivery. Carlson School Kits is a local/family-owned company that has been in business for 103 years, 29 of those doing school kits. Other district #204 schools have provided good feedback on their experiences with Carlson.
Carlson’s builds their kits based on the teacher's lists and offers home delivery of the supplies. So, parents don't have to wait in long queues during 'Meet and Greet'! Please look out for the flyers coming back home in a couple of days in koala folders. In case of any questions, please contact Dipti Mittal (email@example.com).
New volunteer shifts available at the LMC. We are looking for volunteers to work from 11am-1pm any day M-F. Also looking for volunteers Monday or Thursday afternoons from 1/1:30-3/3:30pm. Volunteers shelve books, help students, repair and cover books. If interested please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
FIELD DAY SHIRTS
We will be selling optional school field day shirts this year for $8. Each grade’s shirt will be a different color and that color will remain the same for each grade throughout their time at Cowlishaw. See attachment for additional student order form or order online using the link below. Tax will be added to online orders.
PARENTS MAY ALSO PURCHASE SHIRTS TO WEAR! Parents can choose to get a shirt the same color as their child, grey, or tie dye, but parents must order ONLINE.
Orders must be placed by 4/25. Contact Kristin email@example.com with questions. https://napervillespiritwear.com/FIELD-DAY-2018_c802.htm
