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

Fun Field Day Volunteer Shirts For Sale

posted May 19, 2014, 7:22 PM by Tracie S. or Shelley L.

We have ordered 20 extra Fun Field Day T-shirts that match the kids shirts in design.  

We are down to 9 left.  They are greenish in color.  We are selling these for $9 each.  If you are interested in one, please let me know ASAP.  Once they are gone, they are gone.  We will not be ordering more.   We only have adult sizes in these.   As the quantities are limited, this newsletter is the only form of advertising we are doing for the shirts.  Please share if you think someone who doesn't read the newsletter might be interested.     

Please know that the shirts are not required of volunteers; we just sell a few extra to help offset the cost of the shirts for the kids.    Thank you for considering a purchase.

2014-2015 PTA Membership Drive

posted May 19, 2014, 7:19 PM by Tracie S. or Shelley L.

It worked so well last year - we are doing it again!  We are starting our membership drive for the 2014-2014 academic year early.  Why you ask?   As the school years' seem to be starting earlier, it is hard to get everything together and ready for the committees in a timely manner.   We hope by starting now, it will make the start of the new school year smoother.

Please send your membership form in soon!  (The form is attached if you need).

If you have any questions, please email Tracie.

A Van, Some Cans, A Community Service Plan

posted May 14, 2014, 6:56 PM by Tracie S. or Shelley L.

The Steenrod PTA Citizenship Committee would like to sponsor a drive for a cause that provides direct benefit to children in Wheeling. During the summer months, St. Luke’s Summer Lunch Program, located at 200 South Penn, provides breakfast and/or lunch to any child who comes through their doors. This program has been in existence for 16 years, operating on donations. Last summer, they provided 3,000 meals to Ohio Valley children over the 11 weeks of summer. We would like to help them do even more this year, so we’re asking for your help.

We will have a van parked in front of Steenrod School from 10:00 – 10:30 A.M on the morning of Fun Field Day, Thursday, May 29th. Volunteers will help students load donations directly into the van as they arrive at school. We are hoping for 100% participation - it would be wonderful if every child brings an item for the van!

4th Grade Auction Items Needed

posted May 7, 2014, 9:54 AM by Tracie S. or Shelley L.

A note from our wonderful fourth grade teachers!!!!
    We are looking for items for our second annual fourth grade auction.  The students have lots of "Steenrod cash" to spend, so we would love your help in providing all kinds of weird, wonderful stuff for our auction.  Maybe you have been meaning to do some spring cleaning.  We hope you will consider donating some of your "treasures" to us.  
Possible items (can be new or gently used):
  • arts and crafts supplies
  • sports equipment
  • summer supplies
  • left over favors from parties
  • books
  • toys
  • knick knacks (an owl figurine was a huge hit last year)
  • teacher manual samples
  • anything you think 4th graders would like to buy
     We haven't confirmed a date for our auction yet, but we think it will be the last week of school.
     If you have questions, please contact Mrs. Daugherty jrdaughe@access.k12.wv.us or Ms. Hohman hhohman@access.k12.wv.us.  You can drop things off at school.  In advance, thanks for your cooperation and for your stuff!
