Important Reminders
Please mark your calendars with these upcoming dates:

TONIGHT, Tuesday, November 25, 5-10 pm: Spirit Night at Galaxy Cafe!

PTA Meeting Recap
We had a nice turn out at the PTA meeting last Tuesday. We heard from a candidate for the District 1 AISD board run off who asked to stop by (the PTA cannot support any candidates, but any are welcome to come by). We welcomed our new PTA Treasurer this year, Jennifer Peters, and she gave us an update. She has held this position in the past and we so appreciate her taking it on again. The PTA membership voted on and approved the idea of “Great Gatherings” at Pease, which is a way for parents to organize small fundraisers around their interests while encouraging community building. I’m sure we’ll all learn more about this in the near future. Lisa Appleby Fredine and Renée Woodward are heading this effort. We also heard from Louisa Brinsmade about Friends of Pease (a non-profit group who will take on fundraising from corporate and neighborhood sources for Pease) and PAWS building plans. She also showed us the PAWS crowd funding video that was released the following day. Annie Nguyen reminded everyone about the new email format for E-News and to let her know if there are issues.

IMPORTANT: After Thanksgiving break, you will begin receiving E-News exclusively in a new format. Please keep a close eye on your Inbox and Junk Mail folder for emails from PeasePTACommunications@gmail.com and make sure they get sorted to the right folder! In GMail, these emails may be placed in the “promotions” folder. There will be several weeks of transition where you will receive *both* this E-News from Amanda and the newly formatted E-News. Don’t worry — the content is the same (you don’t have to read both). We just want to give ourselves time to get the kinks worked out and make sure everyone can find and use the new format. We think it will make both compiling and reading E-News easier. Thank you!!

Orchestra Fundraiser – The 6th Grade Orchestra students will be hosting the Winter Pops Concert and Dinner Fundraiser on December 10th at 5:30pm at Austin High. Tickets are sold by orchestra students for two weeks prior to the event or at the door. Proceeds go to the orchestra students to pay for their contest trip to Seguin in May.

This month’s gathering is Friday, November 21 with the interactive portion from 5:45-7:00 pm and the talk entitled “Drones: Myths, Facts, Hacks, and The Future” from 7-8:15 pm.
