boxtopsThe next contest ends this Friday,  Feb 13th.  So start sending those boxtops in. Don’t forget to indicate the teacher’s name so your kid’s class gets a chance to be recognized.
Did you know that:  If there are 10,000 households in the Saline Area School District and everyone collected only 50 box tops through the year… Our schools would have $50,000!.. Now that’s a great reason to start clipping.

Last week’s View from the PTA …

The February PTA meeting was last Thursday and we were happy to see some new faces there – thanks for coming!  We know it isn’t easy to find the time to come, especially for working parents.  Thank you also to everyone who has volunteered to chair or help out with the events that are planned for the next couple of months.  There’s a lot going on and we’re grateful for the help.  Much of the meeting was spent talking about the upcoming Carnival and Auction, which will be on Saturday, March 28.  There will be lots of fun games and lots of great things to bid on at the auction, so please make sure to come join the fun, and invite family and friends to come, too.  Also coming up at Pleasant Ridge:  Art Night this week on 2/12, the Science Fair on 2/26, a super fun School Dance on 3/13 and Reading Month all throughout March.  During March, please start to think about whether you might be interested in joining the board next year and look for some information that will be coming home with your child mid-month. Next month’s meeting will be on March 12 at 9:00 a.m. so please join us if you can.  Thank you!
