Bear PTA News - October 2, 1018

BASKET ITEMS NEEDED!
Fall Festival is right around the corner and we are all so excited!! Our basket raffle is one of the highlights of the Festival. In years past, we have had wonderful baskets due to the generosity of our amazing parents. The deadline for basket items is Friday, October 5th. Basket themes for each grade level are:

Kindergarten - Family Fun
First - Pamper Me
Second - Arts & Crafts
Third - Gourmet Chef
Fourth - Camping
Fifth - Gift Card

Please submit all basket donations by this Friday. Thank you all for your support!

SPECIALIST SPOTLIGHT

The Specialist Spotlight for October is Coach Reynolds – the PE teacher. Coach Reynolds has specifically requested Band-Aid brand bandages - large ones to fit elbows and knees. Other items on her wish list include Lysol wipes, paper towels, gallon Zip-Loc bags (for ice), instant ice packs and AA batteries. If your child brings in an item for Coach Reynolds, make sure that they sign the Gift Log so that they will be entered into a drawing for a prize. There is a collection box in the PE room.


Thank you to Banks and Blevins Henderson, Dylan Hines, and Amelia Johnson for bringing in gifts for Mr. Booker. DYLAN HINES is the winner of the prize for September.
