It is hard to believe that the holidays are here and our school year is almost half way over. What an exciting and busy past few months we have had at Purefoy!
Thank you to all of our Purefoy families and partners who helped make the Fun Run Under the Big Top a huge success – we raised over $30,000! We truly appreciate your generosity! This will enable us to give back directly to our children and the school. The funds raised will allow us to add additional technology in the classrooms and is also a start to improving the Purefoy field with turf and other upgrades. Thank you again for your support of PTA and Purefoy!
Plan to join us this month at our spirit night at Jason’s Deli on Dec 11th, and please contribute to our Cookie Exchange for the staff on Dec 20th.
Thank you to all of our volunteers who make everything run smoothly during all our Purefoy PTA events. We are grateful for each of you and your contributions to Purefoy.
Please check out all the great information in this newsletter and on our website (www.purefoypta.org) and don’t forget to follow our Facebook page for the latest, up to date information.
Have a relaxing holiday with family and friends and we look forward to a fabulous 2019!
I can’t believe we are nearing the end of the first semester of school. We have had a fabulous few months of learning! Our fifth graders are getting ready for Pine Cove on December 5-7th, so I know that will be a great experience for all and lots of memories will be made.
We appreciate everyone’s support and donations during the Fun Run last month. Purefoy raised over $30,000!!! You all are so generous! We appreciate your continued support.
Class parties will be held on Friday, December 21st at 1:50pm. We hope you all have a wonderful holiday break and look forward to a wonderful 2019! We will see students back and ready for learning on January 8th!
Spirit Night | Jason's Deli
Please plan on joining us for our next Spirit Night at Jason's Deli on December 11! These fundraisers are a great way to support the school and take a night off from the kitchen!
Faculty Cookie Exchange
The annual Purefoy Faculty Cookie Exchange is December 20th. The Purefoy staff looks forward to this event every year and we need your help to make it a success!
If you would like to help spread holiday cheer, please bring 4-6 dozen cookies or treats packaged by the dozen to the front office on the afternoon of Wednesday, the 19th, or the morning of Thursday, the 20th, by 8:30 am. Please make sure to label if your treat contains nuts.
Spring Box Top Collection
Box Tops are due February 15th. Start clipping those box tops if you have not already!
We have raised over $800 toward our goal of $1,800!
Congrats to Mrs. Stewart's class for winning the Pump it Up party for the most box tops! Another to be awarded in the Spring to help us reach our goal!
Diversibility Days is fast approaching! Each class will rotate through stations to learn about what makes us all unique and special! The kids really have a lot of fun with this event and we will need all the volunteers we can get!
Sign-ups will be sent out shortly for volunteers on January 16 and 17. Information about the days can be found on our website.
We are still looking for people to share their culture through food, folklore and fun! If this is you, check out our website on how you can get involved.
Multi-cultural Night is on January 24!
It is never too early to mark your calendar and plan on joining us for our annual spring carnival on April 12!
We are still finalizing plans for this amazing event but keep checking the Carnival page for more information!
We are still trying to reach our goal of a voice (membership) for every child at Purefoy. We only need 20 more families to join!!
