Box Tops Count all the time... but... if we want those Box Tops to count for the 2015-2016 school year, we need to send them in this month. Please if you have 1 or 200, please send them in. It really helps us if you staple them to the collection sheets. Need one? Click here.
The Steenrod PTA General Membership Meeting scheduled for February 9, 2016 has been cancelled (because school was cancelled). We will reschedule the meeting so that we can listen to the 2nd and 3rd grade and Chorus sing. Thank you for understanding.
Can you help?
This past weekend, Mrs. Vanhorn's sister's home was lost in a fire. The family of 6 lost everything. There are 4 children in the family - three girls ages 16, 14, and 11 and one boy age 12 plus Mom and Dad. Can you imagine starting over? We are asking that you to help Mrs. Vanhorn help her family with their unexpected new beginning.
With that it mind, it is our understanding that they have received a lot of donations for clothing. We thought we would collect gift cards and monetary donations to be given directly to her family. Starting over means they will need everything from about every store you can think of - and they need to eat too. Do you happen to have a gift card that you received for Christmas that you don't really need? Lowes, Kohls, JCP, Kroger, Olive Garden... Do you happen to have a gift card for a return that has a balance on it? Wal-Mart, Target, Dominos.... If you don't have one what about purchasing a gift card? What about the money that you were planning to use for an extra treat this week? Can you spare any of it?
In times like this, we are always thankful for our Steenrod Community. We seem to rally around each other - whether we know the people in need or not. We truly are a family.
If you can spare a donation in the form of money or a gift card, please send it to school in an envelope marked Vanhorn Family Donation. If you would like to write a check, please make it to Steenrod PTA. We will gather all donations and write one check to the family. Donations can be sent to school or dropped off at the office. We will collect donations through January 29, 2016.
