THURSDAY AFTERNOON APPRECIATION SNACK VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
This was a big hit last Fall so we are keeping it going! We would like to show our fine teachers some love each Thursday during their 3 pm weekly meetings. Please bring a light and simple snack for approx. 20 people. One signup/snack per week. Label “PTA Teacher Meeting Snack” and drop off in staff room on table or in fridge anytime Thursday before 3pm. Paper plates, utensils etc are optional – PTA will provide if you cannot. Ideas: cheese and crackers; chips and salsa/guacamole/dip; salads; fruit tray; veggie tray; pastries/baked goods; popcorn; yogurt and granola; nuts/trail mix. If you need ideas, ask your teacher!
Sign up here.
Connect with other Parents
All parents & caretakers are invited to join their classrooms’ group chats to stay in touch with others in their classroom through text, email, or the Remind app. You choose! It’s so handy for playdates, missed assignments, field trips, etc.
Text @fordinfo to the number 81010 or click remind.com/join/fordinfo and then message the PTA for further instructions.
