THANK YOU for the incredible response to our Uniform Drive during the first couple weeks of school! We are now pretty well covered in smaller sizes, but there's still a need for larger sizes. Specifically: pants 6/7, 8/10, 12/14; shirts Small, Medium, Large; boys underwear Small, Medium, Large; girls underwear 6, 8, 10; and socks. If you wish to contribute, you may drop off your donations in the Main Office or give them to any PTO officer. And be sure to let us know if you would like a receipt for your contribution.
The PTO needs YOU! We've hit the ground running and have an immediate need for volunteers for several specific tasks: Member of the PTO's "Needs Assessment" team; News/copywriter for local blogs and media (such as Hill Rag); "Tweeter" to tweet from the PTO's Twitter account; Manager for our spirit wear and the Spirit Store; and a Researcher to investigate stage curtains. Details about these tasks/roles are available on the Volunteer page of Miner's website: http://www.minerelementary.org/volunteer.html. If you're interested in any of these areas, please email email@example.com.
