Room Parent Update – October 12, 2022

Hello Parents,

I wanted to share a few updates about some upcoming events and PTA news for the month of October. 

  1. National Principals Month is this month! October is National Principals Month! There is no doubt Endhaven has two of the most committed leaders in the district in Mrs. McKinney and our Assistant Principal, Mrs. Conn. Please consider asking your child to make a card or write a letter to show our appreciation to them this month! Mrs. McKinney and Mrs. Conn are also included in the Teacher & Staff Favorites List linked here or you can help them stock the “Principal’s Treasure Chest” with fun rewards by donating using the Amazon link https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2VEE8HU08L45S?ref_=wl_share
  2. Last call for Spiritwear!   New spiritwear designs are now available, including a special 20th anniversary shirt and car magnet! Order now through Friday, October 14th by completing and returning the form that came home with your child last week in Thursday folders or order online at Pay4SchoolStuff.com. If paying with cash, please provide the correct amount.  Change will not be provided and “extra” will be considered a donation to the PTA. Checks are not accepted. The order form may also be accessed here. You can view designs on our PTA website here! NEW items have been added, including a car magnet and another t-shirt option!
  3. Sign Up for Pizza Bingo on Friday, October 21st!  Pizza Bingo is back! Please join us on Friday, October 21st for bingo and pizza with your Endhaven friends. We will have two seatings that evening from 6 pm – 7 pm and 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm. An order form (linked here) was sent home in your student’s Thursday folder last week, or you can register online at pay4schoolstuff.com! We need volunteers for this fun event! Each volunteer will receive 2 free bingo cards! You can sign up to volunteer here. All volunteers must register annually with CMS at www.cmsvolunteers.com.
