PAC Email Update 8/29/16

Hello North Street Families,

How is it that School is starting this week? It’s crazy how fast summer goes. But as summer winds down and the school year begins there is always a lot to remember. I want to start by saying I hope everyone one has a great first day and everyone comes home with smiles on their bright little faces.

Our Annual Stuff the Bus event was a HUGE success. We had a huge turn out and were able to help a lot of families in need. I wanted to give a HUGE thank you to everyone that helped in every way. Whether it was donating or helping at the event without all of you these events could not happen!!!

If anyone wants to volunteer in the school, wants to be involved in their child’s classroom, wants to volunteer for anything that goes on in the school you need to have a CORI check. So please if you plan on doing anything with the school this year please have a CORI check done.

Here are some upcoming dates to remember:

August 31st – First day of school

September 2nd – No School (school is closed)

September 5th – No School Labor Day

September 8th 12:30 pm – Library Training at North Street

September 8th 5:30 pm – Library Training at the Dewing

September 8th 6:30 pm – First PAC meeting of the year. This will be at the Dewing Library. This will be a combined meeting with the Dewing school. I hope to see some old and new faces there.

September 9th 12:30 pm – Library Training at North Street

North Street Library

Our school library is run solely by volunteers and we need your help. Notices will go home to sign up for class times- one hour per week, every other week for the school year. We are using a new system this year and will draw names by lottery if there are too many signed up for one class. If you cannot make your child’s class time we hope you will consider helping in another class or being a substitute. A CORI is required so please get to the school office ASAP if you are planning to volunteer. Training will be offered on Thursday, September 8 and Friday, September 9 from 12:30-2p and you must be trained to work in the library. This is an important part of learning and we are looking for dedicated parents who want to make this an enriching experience for the kids by helping them find books, navigate the library, and improve their research skills. For any questions please contact Paige Impink at pfimpink@comcast.net .

Always remember to clip those box tops and save them for our upcoming year!!! There are always great raffles every month, and sometimes a surprise competition too!!!

I am looking for some volunteers for a number of different things. There are things that can be done from home or in school. Whichever you prefer. I would love to see some new faces, even if it’s just an hour of your time. Every hour that you volunteer is an hour put towards making a better school for our children and the children to come.

Good Morning

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far!!! I can’t believe we only have 3 more weeks of summer. I want to introduce myself, my name is Debbie Johnson and I am the new Chair for the North Street PAC. I am so happy to take the position and hope I can fill the big shoes Carolyn had here. I have been working closely with the PAC chair for the Dewing and I think we have a pretty great year instore.

I also wanted to introduce our new treasurer Nancy De Leon and our new secretary Jen Insognia!!! I am super excited to be a team with both these great ladies!!!

Don’t forget there are still ways to raise money for the school while enjoying your summer vacation.

Will you be going to the Lowell Spinners this summer? If you purchase tickets online through http://www.lowellspinners.com/ and enter the code ‘dewing‘ (all lowercase), the Spinners will give us a percentage back. It’s a great way to have fun this summer and earn money for our school.
