Hope everyone had a great start to the school year last week! Thank you to all who came to the PTA Welcome Coffee on the first day. If you missed it, see below for information about registering with the PTA. Have a great first full week of school!

 

THANK YOUs
Please share in my appreciation to:
•Mrs. Neigel - Our wonderful art teacher shared her talent and made the PTA sign that was out front for the Welcome Coffee.
•Kerrie Samuelian for making a quick coffee run when it wasn't ready in time for the Welcome Coffee!
•Wendee Reedy for planning a great Welcome Coffee.
•Sonia and Brandon Boskovic, Carol Mui, Laura Tanny and all other volunteers at the various tables displaying their information at the Welcome Coffee.
•All members of the Executive Committee for helping with the One Smart Cookie Party and the PTA registration. And especially to Chris Samuelian for his help too!


CURRICULUM NIGHT
Wednesday, August 24 7-8pm
This is a parents only evening to learn about what is planned for your child throughout the school year. For those with more than one child, there will be two sessions so teachers will present twice about the classroom rules, procedures, and curriculum.  Sign-up sheets will also be in the gym for Parent/Teacher Conferences to be held on Nov. 21-22.

 

MOM's NIGHT OUT
Stay tuned for the dates in Sept/Oct for this great tradition at Field.
Every grade will have an evening planned for the Mom's to get together at one hostess' house for a casual get-together. A $10 donation is requested which then reduces the need for "sales calls" throughout the year.  And most importantly, it's such a fun and great way to meet and get to know other Mom's from your child's grade.

 

PTA Meetings
The first PTA meeting for the school year will take place on Tuesday, Sept. 13 at 7pm in the Field School Library. ?Subsequent meetings will be held on:
October 11 at 4pm
November 8 at 7pm
No December meeting
January 10 at 1:45pm
February 7 at 7pm
March 14 at 1:45pm
April 11 at 7pm
May 9 at 8:15am (Appreciation Breakfast)
*If you can't attend a meeting but would like to know what was discussed, please check out the Field PTA website? at Field School PTA for the meeting minutes (please note they won't be posted until voted on at the following month's meeting).

 

PTA Committees
Please consider volunteering with any of our many clubs, programs, fundraising efforts, and other ways to support Field School. A full list of all of the PTA committees is on the Field PTA website Field School PTA
The following committees are still in need of a chair in order to be able to continue to be held. Consider asking a friend, neighbor, and anyone else who might be interested in co-chairing with you! If interested or for further information, please contact President-Elect Kerrie Samuelian at kerriesamuelian@gmail.com
•Chess Club - kids love this so consider volunteering so we don't lose this great club this year!
•Field Social Committee - help plan some fun social events such as Family Game Night and our End of Year Party, or how about helping start something new like Couples Night Out, an ice skating party, or so many other great ideas!
•Walk to School Week/Safe Routes to School - coordinate a table out front of school on Oct 5 and May 10 that promotes the kids to walk/bike to school.
•Winter Carnival - with a lot of help, this is an annual event filled with kids' games, activities, raffle, and tons of fun for the whole family!
•Junior Achievement** per District, this will no longer be held during the school day but instead can be offered as an afterschool program
