November Newsletter

Dear Phoebe Families,

Well, we’ve done it again! The Jog-a-thon for the Arts has set a new record for school fundraising, totaling more than $73,000 in just a few weeks – that’s simply amazing.  From sponsors, to parents, to friends, neighbors, and family members, we came together to support our arts and enrichment program at Phoebe; this group effort speaks to the good will we work every day to earn, as well as a belief in our mission and those on campus who carry it out.  Every dollar earned will enrich the experience your student has while at Phoebe, and we are committed to always find ways to improve. I would like to thank Brittney Ah-Yun and her team for putting on a wonderful event, procuring some great new PH swag and so many awesome prizes for our kids.  Let’s also congratulate the race winners – Matteo Galizio and Elise Beckwith in Kinder, Maclynn McCurdy and Wyatt Trask in First, Kyle Beckett and Chase Brinzer in 2nd, Lily Hall and Jacob Weathers in 3rd, Mia Moreno and Logan Wohlers in 4th, Aspen Lane and Seamus Russell in 5th, Giada Pagano and Cameron Kapicka in 6th, and Kellen Sullivan and Naomi Burnett in the Fastest 6th Grader Race – Nice job everyone!

We’ll look ahead to the Harvest Festival this weekend, which never disappoints!  Scarecrows, a Haunted House, a bounce obstacle course, face painting, and a chance to win your very own gold fish…what could be better?! The festivities will kick off at 3pm on Saturday, and we would love it if you and yours came in costume to show your spirit!  Annette Toth and her team have been working hard to bring you a great experience, and a $10 wristband buys you unlimited games (of which there are many) and a pumpkin – that’s hard to beat.

Attached to this newsletter you can find the PTO Newsletter, upcoming fundraisers, and all fliers for the next after school enrichment classes.  Please let me or the office know if you have any problem accessing or printing the files – thank you to everyone for supporting our efforts to reduce paper waste and save printing costs this year!
