PTO News: December 2012

For minutes from the PTO November meeting, please visit the PTO website: http://honeycreekpto.wordpress.com/
Fundraising update: The Learning Express fundraiser raised $405, all of which will go towards the non-fiction leveled reading library. Thank you to everyone who participated! The Honey Creek community has raised a total of $4,017 for the leveled library. This K-8 library is the main PTO fundraising effort for the 2012-2013 school year, and it is a top priority for teachers. The entire cost for the library – purchase and shipping – is $6,600. We need an additional $2,583. At the December 14th PTO meeting, the PTO will vote on a proposal to use the Special Projects Committee Budget to fulfill the funds needed for the library. For 2012-2013, the Special Projects Committee Budget is $2800. In accordance with the PTO Bylaws, this proposal is open for community review and comment, as every parent, teacher and administrator is a HCCS PTO member. If you are unable to attend the December meeting, please leave your comments on the PTO website or speak with a PTO officer.
High Point / Honey Creek Craft Sale: Every November and December, parent volunteers help High Point and Honey Creek students with craft projects. Then, in December, kids and parents are treated to a craft bazaar, where they can purchase handmade items. Prices are $0.25 and up. Children who would like to make several purchases are encouraged to bring some money from home. (Younger children can ask their teachers to help them keep their money safe.) However, the PTO will give each student a “PTO Buck,” worth $1.00, to use as they like at the bazaar. The Craft Sale is a wonderful experience, both in making and in buying the crafts. Students have a lot of pride and ownership of their creations, and they love being able to buy presents for their parents and siblings. If you would like to help with the crafting or with the bazaar itself, please contact Marta England (englandmarta@hotmail.com) or Val Mann (valmannart@gmail.com).
Mark your calendars!

Bagel Fridays: Relax with breakfast at the school on Friday mornings (or the last school day of the week). Bagels, cream cheese and juice, OH MY! There are also toasters available for use.
