Some announcements for the week of October 16: 

First, we are excited to announce that as of Friday, our PTA Fund it FAST campaign has raised over $14,000. This is an amazing accomplishment and we appreciate everyone's efforts. The PTA will accept donations through Friday, October 20.

Second, we have several events on our calendar for this Thursday, October 19. 

  • It's a delayed opening. Students may should arrive at school between 9:25 and 9:50 AM. We appreciate this valuable professional learning time for our staff.
  • During the delayed opening, some students and I will host a drive thru coffee bar and bake sale in the main bus parking lot from 8-9 AM. Proceeds from the sale will go directly to our Fund it FAST campaign. Please consider driving or walking through to buy a treat for a good cause.
  • On Thursday evening, the PTA will host spirit night at Alfredo's Pizza in University Mall from 5-8 PM. Alfredo has generously offered to donate 10% of the proceeds from this event back to our school.

Third, Reflections Art Contest entries are due this Friday, October 20. The theme is "Within Reach" and I encourage all students to participate.

Fourth, we're also collecting Box Tops for Education this week. The class who has the most will win a celebration, so start cutting those labels!

Finally, if you are interested, this week's article is about the importance of Parent Teacher Associations. I appreciate the strong support our families provide at Ephesus and I encourage everyone to become involved.
