What is Steenrod PTA all about?  We’re parents, teachers, grandparents, relatives and friends, joining together with one hand, one heart, and one voice to help every child at Steenrod succeed.  Look around our school and you’ll see many signs of PTA members’ efforts – building enhancements, computer equipment, art exhibits, recess equipment, books, bulletin boards … the list is long, and very open-ended! As technology expands and new ideas emerge, the school’s need for PTA help expands, too.  Join us as we support our future! Bookmark and Share


Saturday Scholars Thanks!

Thank you to the 130 student who participated in Saturday Scholars! The kids had an awesome morning, taking various fun classes! We had fabulous donations from Kroger and Jebbia's Fruit Market. And of course, this event would not be possible without the many parent volunteers who helped out! We look forward to this event again next year!

Sidewalk Chalk Needed

posted Apr 9, 2014, 7:14 AM by Tracie S. or Shelley L.

Did you know that one item that we can never have enough of is Sidewalk Chalk?  Our little ones love to create at recess!    Now, as the weather is getting nicer, they are going to really want to get creating!  The PTA has purchased a start of chalk for the kids.  However, this is only going to last a week with all the kids.    If you are out and about, would you be so kind as to purchase and donate some sidewalk chalk for the kids?  It does not matter what brand - any kind will do.   Just send it in to school and we will make sure it gets to the kids at recess.   If you are in the office and want to drop it off, please put it near the PTA folders.
Thank you!!!

Kroger Community Rewards - Time to Re-enroll

posted Apr 9, 2014, 7:11 AM by Tracie S. or Shelley L.

Steenrod PTA is a participant in the Kroger Community Rewards Program!   Now is the time that we enroll or re-enroll.  (If you have enrolled prior to April 1, 2014, you must log into your account and re-link it to Steenrod.  Otherwise, your shopping will not count toward Steenrod PTA.)

This program provides cash back to participating schools/organizations  based upon the purchase amounts for registered users!  All you have to do is sign up one time (a year) and then just swipe your Kroger card or enter your alternate number each time you shop!  We have participated in this program for the last 4 years, and the amount of money we have earned for PTA programming is unbelievable!
   For example, since July, we have earned over $1800!
