Around town and Breakfast With Dads!

IMG_1724

If you missed restaurant night at Yogurtland last Thursday, you still can help Reidy Creek win the “Battle of the Schools” contest Yogurtland has going on. Every $5 spent earns you a dot that you affix onto the banner in the store.  The first one to cross the finish line (not pictured here because the banner was too big!) wins $300 for their school. Second place gets $150, and third $75, respectively. As of Sunday, September 29th, we are happy to report that Reidy Creek Elementary is currently in the lead followed closely by North Broadway.

This Thursday, October 3rd, 2019 we also have the PTA Breakfast with Dads from 7:10-8:10AM. You can find out more about it here.

Also, we recently added to our website.  Please check out the following links:

We would love to see all parents of TK through 2nd grade at the PTA Social…Part Two which coincides with Back to School night #2 tomorrow, Thursday, September 19, 2019 starting at 5pm. We know you will all be occupied listening to Mrs. Mussatti’s message, and heading to classrooms, but afterward, please stop by and say hi! This is also a reminder that this night is for grades TK-2 only! 

Here are some tips to make your informal meeting with us a productive one!

  • Jot down any questions for us. Find out how PTA is the largest child advocacy group in the country!
  • Take a look at the events we make possible and decide how you would like to contribute. Ways to help are by: volunteering your time, talents or supplies.

October 8 – 12, 2018

Here’s what’s happening this week @ Reidy Creek:

Thursday:

  • Breakfast with Moms (7:10 am – 8:10 am)
    • This event is for all of our Reidy Creek moms, grandmas, aunts, or other important figure in your student’s life.  Breakfast will be FREE for all PTA members (adult) and associated student(s).  In order to receive your free breakfast, you must present the Blue Ticket you received when you became a PTA member (check inside the PTA membership packet you received when you signed up to become a member).  If you have your Blue Ticket, you can immediately get in line at the cafeteria, no need to check-in at the PTA tent.  However, if you lost, misplaced, or forget your Blue Ticket, you must check in at the PTA tent where our PTA volunteers will be able to look you up on our list but please be prepared to wait in the line.
    • If you are not a member of the PTA and would like to still participate, you are more than welcome to join us for breakfast.  In this instance, you have two options.  The first is to join the PTA in the morning of the breakfast when you arrive ($10 membership fee; check-in at the PTA tent).  This will allow you to eat and support our school through your membership.  Alternatively, if you choose not to join, you can pay for yourself and your child in the cafeteria.  Please make sure to bring cash to facilitate this process.
    • This is a school wide event so please plan on coming early.  The blacktop off the main playground will be open for overflow parking.  However, you may also want to consider parking outside of the school and walking in.  We respectfully ask that you do not park along the curbs or in spots designated “No Parking” and/or areas not meant to be parking areas.
    • If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at reidycreekpta@gmail.com.
