PTO News: June 2013

PTO News
Over the past couple of months, the PTO has been working to fill the Executive Committee for 2013-2014. During the May meeting, Eva Wreford was voted in as the 2013-2014 co-Chair. During the June meeting, we will vote for next year’s Secretary position, for which Sue Kirkup has volunteered. Huge thank yous to Eva and Sue for volunteering!
Rewards & SCRIP: If you are a Kroger Rewards member, please re-enroll. (See the PTO website for details.) Honey Creek will not continue to receive a percentage of your purchases until you re-enroll. Also, check out Great Lakes SCRIP’s website (http://www.glscrip.com/), where you can reload some cards electronically throughout the summer.
Summer Playdates: The PTO will invite current and incoming families to meet at County Farm Park, off of Platt Road in Ann Arbor, for summer playdates. The first playdate will be on Friday, June 14th, from 9:30-11:30 A.M. Come as you can, and always feel welcome to bring friends or interested families. An email with more information will be coming out soon.
PTO Event Planning & Maintenance: The PTO will still need help over the summer. At least two big events require summer planning: the Welcome Back Picnic and the Fall Festival. Watch for emails about helping with the picnic. To help with the Fall Festival, please contact Ann Kovacs (anntomkovacs@yahoo.com).  Also, in July the PTO will need two volunteers to conduct a basic internal financial audit. This is a simple review, taking up only an hour or two of your time. Please look for the emails and let us know if these are things with which you can help.
Finally, to really get into planning, consider signing up to work on the 2014 Fundraising Ball (with Teacher Awards) or to help recognize Honey Creek’s 20th Anniversary, which will be in 2015.
Thanks: We’d like to offer an advance thanks to everyone helping with Earth Day and with Graduation and the Middle School Dance. It’s sure to be a huge list of volunteers– just know that we appreciate all of you. Thanks also to the many volunteer ambassadors for Curriculum Celebration, to Matt for his HUGE reorganization and de-cluttering of the PTO closet and for running the HCCS-HP Teacher Appreciation Lunch, to Jody for organizing the many teacher potlucks, and to Karen and all of the room parents for their teacher appreciation efforts both in early May and as we approach the end of the school year.

Mark your calendars:
• Bagel Fridays: The last Bagel Friday of the year will be on Friday, June 7th. Come to the Cafetorium to enjoy bagels and friends, make one last contribution to the bagel fund, and purchase SCRIP.
• June PTO Meeting: Friday, June 7th, 8:30-10:30 AM
• Summer Playdates: every Friday, June 14th – August 30th, 9:30-11:30 AM
