Important Carnival Information
Are you ready for the Carnival???? We are! Because there was a typo last week on what day the pre-sale orders were due, we are extending that due date until TOMORROW, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 6TH. You can send in your form or purchase online our website HERE. Wristbands will be delivered to the classrooms on Thursday, March 7th. Please look in your child's backpack for your order. Volunteers: If you are willing to help at the carnival there are still many openings available on our sign up HERE. Our adult volunteers that sign up under the Sign Up Genius link will receive a free unlimited rides wristband. These will also be delivered to your child's classroom on Thursday. If a student/parent volunteer with their teacher, they will receive free entrance. Donations Needed: 4th & 3rd grade will be having a Snack Walk and are in need of individually packaged snacks. 1st grade is also in need of non-soda 2 liter bottles (lemonade, fruit punch, etc.). If these types are difficult to find, please donate non-caffeinated 2 liter sodas. They appreciate your help! If you need help bringing in these items as they can be heavy, we have a cart available to use in the front office. We have some great vendors attending Carnival! Make sure to check them out: Advocare Rusty Cowboy's Lone Wolf Lapidary Maricopa County Animal Care & Control (accepting donations!) Full Circle Jujitsu Young Living Gold Canyon Candles Mountain Shadows Elementary (Miss Andrea) Magic & Balloons There will also be some great performers for our Entertainment Hour! We have been keeping an eye on the weather, hence the delay in this newsletter. Arizona seems to want to fit all seasons in 1 week! As of today, the weather will be 63* and breezy.

PTSA Executive Board Elections 2019-2020
Last week we sent out important information regarding the elections for the PTSA Executive Board. Please note the typo regarding the deadline on expressing intent to run. The correct date is March 15th. We currently have people who have expressed intent to run, but we are still in need of a nominee for Secretary. Please email or call/text Brie Peck with ANY questions you may have.
