Dos Coyotes Fundraiser, Conferences, Jog-A-Thon

Good evening, Phoebe families,

I hope all of our Phoebe families had a safe and enjoyable weekend. As we round the corner into November, I am reminded that although we are in the midst of events that we cannot control, there is much to be grateful for which leads us into our new monthly Social Emotional Learning theme: Gratitude. Please take a moment to check out the parent resources regarding gratitude.

Need a dinner idea for election night? Come out and support our Dine and Donate event at Dos Coyotes from 4:00-8:00pm on Tuesday, November 3rd. 20% of all proceeds will go back to our school.

We will be holding Parent/Teacher conferences during the week of December 4-11. Your child’s teacher will be contacting you for a date and time for your conference. Most conferences will be scheduled in the afternoon time. If you have questions about parent/teacher conferences, please reach out to your child’s teacher.

Thanks for everyone’s outstanding efforts to fundraise for the Jog-A-Thon. Together, we raised more than $80,000!

And BIG thank you to the Kindelt family for sponsoring the Jog-A-Thon so that every student will receive a Jog-A-Thon shirt!

We will be distributing Jog-A-Thon prizes the week of November 9 via drive through pick-up at school. Due to the Kindelt’s generosity, all students will have swag to be picked up. All COVID safety protocols will remain in place for this effort (masks required). Distribution will be done alphabetically on the following schedule:

Tuesday, Nov, 10 from 2-4pm: Last names starting with A – L
Thursday, Nov 12 from 2-4pm: Last names starting with M – Z

If you’re able to grab a friend or neighbor’s swag and deliver to them, you are welcome to do so. If you are unable to pick up your child’s Jog-A-Thon swag during these windows, you can pick up in the office on or after Friday, Nov 13.

WE NEED VOLUNTEERS! If you are able to do an hour-shift on either or both days, we could use the hands to make distribution fast and efficient.

To recognize readers throughout the entire school year, we’ll have monthly prizes. To be eligible, submit logs on the website AND to by the 1st Monday of the following month (October logs are due Nov. 2).

Thank you and have a wonderful evening,
