January 22 Update

It’s a big week for the PTO.  Here’s a quick update on all of the events:

The WildKAT Challenge kicks off today!  Packets will be sent home with students this afternoon.  Please take a look and consider collecting pledges and volunteering.  Click here and look for the packets tonight for more information.

The next PTO meeting is Thursday night, January 24, at 6:00 PM.  Construction is done in the library, so it will be held there and open to all parents and teachers.  Free child care will be provided.  It will also be available live on Facebook.  Make sure to follow the Webster PTO on FB if you haven’t already.  Agenda items will include the WildKAT Challenge, the ArtSmart Scholarship, the new sign in front of school, and our upcoming Penny Pitch.  We hope you can join us!

The Second Grade Special Person Lunch is this Friday, January 25, from 12:20 – 12:50 PM.  If you have a second grader at Webster, please join them for a fun lunch!  Also remember that the 25th is an early release and students will be done with school at 1:00.

Lastly, the PTO would like to thank everyone who made Movie Night a success last Friday.  It was the first movie night in the renovated gymnasium/auditorium and the new A/V equipment did not disappoint.  We had recommendations from many parents after the movie that we should do that more often.  We agree and will try to plan more in the future.

Thanks, and have a great week.

WildKAT Challenge Starts TODAY!

The WildKAT Challenge officially kicks off TODAY!  The packets will be sent home with students this afternoon.  More details in the coming days about prizes for participation and fundraising.

The WildKAT Challenge is a Knowledge-a-Thon that will be held on Thursday, February 21, 2019.  The list of questions has been sent home with the packets, but can also be viewed online here (click the numbered tabs at the bottom of the spreadsheet to view questions for different grades).  Your support in helping our students showcase their knowledge and supporting our school is greatly appreciated!

Students will be collecting pledges for the WildKAT Challenge over the next several weeks.  100% of the money raised goes to benefit the students of Webster Elementary School.

We need your help to make this a success!!

  • Assist your child in filling out the pledge sheet and requesting pledges from family, friends or anyone who would be interested in supporting our students.  Pledges can be either a “per question amount” for the 50 questions (20 questions for 4K) or a straight dollar amount.
  • The pledge sheet needs to be returned to school by Friday, February 8th.  It is important that all pledge sheets are returned, even if no pledges were collected.  We do, however, encourage everyone to participate in this event. The students have a great time and pledges support our school.
  • Please give strong consideration to volunteering for this event.  The WildKAT Challenge requires 35-40 volunteers to be a success and we need your help!  Grandparents, aunts, uncles, family friends and anyone else you can think of can volunteer.  If you are interested, please fill out the attached volunteer form.
  • If you have questions about the WildKAT Challenge please contact us at websterschoolpto@gmail.com.

Thank you very much!

January 9 Update

Greetings, Webster Family!  We hope you had a fantastic Winter Recess and everyone is back in the swing of things.  We have a busy winter ahead with some big activities planned.

First up is our annual Movie Night coming up next Friday, January 18, in our newly renovated gym/auditorium.  This year’s movie will be Smallfoot.  This is a free event and all families are welcome.  We will have popcorn, candy, juice, and water available for sale.  The event starts at 6:00 PM and kids are encouraged to bring sleeping bags and PJ’s to get comfortable on the gym floor.

Our 4th Annual WildKAT Challenge is coming up on February 21.  For those unfamiliar, the WildKAT Challenge is an all-day Knowledge-a-Thon and students answer questions to raise money for the PTO.  The official kickoff will be January 22.  We will be sending home family packets with all of the details on that day.  We have big things planned this year with a lot of opportunities for kids to win big prizes for raising money and answering questions correctly.  We’ll be looking for a lot of volunteers for the event, so if you’re able, please keep February 21 available and bring some family and friends.  Again, a lot more information to come on January 24.

The final big piece of news we have right now is that the new digital sign was installed in front of the school yesterday!  We look forward to the sign being a great tool to communicate Webster’s events to the community.  If you haven’t seen it, take a drive down Webster Avenue and check it out.

That’s all for tonight.  Have a great week and we’ll be back with more next week.
