News Update Weeks of 9/25 – 10/6

Hello Webster Elementary Families!

Just about three weeks done in our new school year. I hope your family is adjusting to new routines and new things for the year. One new thing for the school year that PTO is rolling out is how we disseminate information to the Webster community. We have moved from weekly newsletter updates to using social media to provide important updates for our families. We’re open to your comments and constructive criticism of this new method — please let us know on Facebook or through the PTO email how you feel about this change. Thank you!

Another method for receiving information about school and PTO events is through the PTO calendar available on our website. You can subscribe to this calendar using your preferred personal calendar and edit events on a desktop browser to add mobile or email notifications. You can also add notifications for changes made by PTO to our calendar events. For example, if a PTO admin changes an “All-Day” activity to have a specific time you will receive an email notification of that change.

Now to the news for the next few weeks:

  1. Please be sure to drop off your Hansen’s Order forms today to school. Today is the last day of our fundraiser! You can also put in online orders by midnight today.
  2. National Walk to School Day is on Wednesday, October 4th in the morning before school. This is a great activity to encourage more physical activity in our community. PTO will update this post and Facebook with more information about ways to join in this event.
  3. Fall Fest is coming soon! We will be hosting this event at school on Tuesday, October 24th from 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM. We look forward to filling you in with more updates on vendors and activities. If you have any ideas or suggestions for this event, please reach out to PTO on Facebook or by email.

Weeks of 9/11 – 9/22

Welcome to a new school year! I hope your child/children’s first week at school went well.

Upcoming events or important dates for the next two weeks:

On Thursday, September 14th students will have their first chance to have popcorn. Popcorn is $.50 a bag.

Also on Thursday the 14th, the Webster PTO will be hosting its first general meeting of the 2017-2018 school year. All parents and guardians of students at Webster Elementary are automatically members of the PTO. You are encouraged to join us at 6 PM in the library at Webster Elementary. At the general PTO meeting you’ll be able to meet the PTO executive board, Principal Nancy Schultz, and some of our Webster teachers. We will be discussing the upcoming school year, in particular: opportunities to volunteer at school functions and PTO events, information about fundraisers, and other ways to support students and staff at Webster. If you are curious about how to help the PTO or have ideas to share, please feel free to bring questions and comments for the PTO board. There will be free childcare provided in the gym during the duration of the general PTO meeting.

Our general PTO meeting will also be broadcast on our Webster PTO Facebook Page.

On Tuesday, September 19th students will have their school picture taken at school during the day. Look for more information in the first Tuesday folder of the year.

The Hansen’s Food Fundraiser had a great kickoff on Thursday! A representative from Hansen’s was present to help get the kids pumped up about selling pizza and other great stuff to help out the school. If you’re curious how the kickoff went, look for the Facebook Live video on our Facebook page. Orders are due on Monday, September 25th.

Look for a Facebook Live post tomorrow during the day.

Cheers,

Loren Prince, Communications Director
