Pease Elementary’s 138th birthday and Hootenanny celebration is coming up on Friday, October 24th at 5:30 pm. We have attached a menu with prices and attractions so you can come prepared. All of the proceeds from the food booth and haunted house at Hootenanny will help the 6th grade Pease students have a spooktacular graduation ceremony, party, field trip, and pay for other expenses that come with being a 6th grader. Although we will have UT volunteers helping that night (yay!), we will still need parent help. We still have lots of spots open–please sign up to help at the following link: Volunteer for Hootenanny.
In celebration of Pease’s birthday, we will be spelling out “HAPPY BIRTHDAY PEASE” in cupcakes and we would love lots more cupcakes, too! Halloween themed cupcakes are perfect so please don’t forget to bring them and drop them off at the tables set up in front of the cafeteria the day of Hootenanny. Please sign up if you can bring cupcakes here: Hootenanny Cupcakes. We have also updated the same spreadsheet (the “Items Needed” tab) with other items that we are in need of for the carnival booths, so please sign up to bring something. We need lollipops, balloons, and craft items. If you have any questions, please contact Kate Hoermann at email@example.com Thank you!
Please join us for our October PTA meeting this Tuesday, October 21 at 5:45 pm. We hope you’ll come and provide input on ideas for community building and PTA meeting topics for the rest of the year. We’ll also be discussing a budget amendment, the community coffee next week, and upcoming fundraisers. Pizza will be for sale prior to the meeting and childcare will be provided. Hope to see you there!
An idea that has been brought up with the PTA is to have “Community Coffees” and gatherings around town to promote a sense of community and meet Pease parents in our neighborhoods. Our kick-off Community Coffee will be held on Monday, Oct. 27 from 7:20 – 8:00 am on the South playground at Pease. It is a purely social gathering, and we invite any teachers or parents who are able to join us for a cup of coffee and some casual conversation! Also, please let us know if you would be interested in organizing a Pease community gathering in your neighborhood.
