CandyGrams and Booster Club Officers
Your Booster Club needs YOU! Please consider running for office in our Booster Club. Nomination and elections of officers for our booster club will take place at the March Booster Club meeting, March 5 at 8:30 a.m. Our entire staff of officers will be leaving at the end of this year, as their 6th graders graduate and go on to middle school. It's up to 4th and 5th grade parents to step up and fill these places. We'll be nominating and electing a President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. If you would like to help your school in this very important way, please be present to nominate yourself. It's not as big a time commitment as you might think! A job description of the offices is available, just contact us and we'll email you a copy.
San Luis Obispo is celebrating 27 years of being a Tree City, USA as well as our 27th Arbor Day celebration on Saturday, May 1. The city is sponsoring an elementary school contest of artwork and poems. The purpose of the contest is to focus attention on the value of trees to our environment in general and to our lives in particular.
The contest rules are simple: the subject of all work is to be trees. Possible inclusion of the slogan, "We Love SLO Trees" might be considered. For artwork, pencil, pen, chalk, charcoal, watercolor or other illustration (but no photographs, collages or non-original graphic arts). Size: 8.5x11 to 18x24". For poems, 100 word maximum length submitted on 8.5x11" paper. All entries must be submitted by the end of school Friday, March 19.
Planning is underway for our quickly approaching March-a-thon, scheduled for Friday, March 19th! Our next meeting will be held on Wednesday, February 17th at 2:30. We'll meet at the lunch tables outside the multi-purpose room (inside the Multi if it's raining), and snack will be provided for the kids! Please come and lend a hand, or contact Cheryl Clark (234-2025 / firstname.lastname@example.org) if you'd like to volunteer the day of the event.
