Will Rogers Family,
We send many warm thoughts to our graduating 5th graders. They will be missed next year but we know that they will be taking the Middle School by storm come August 20th.
May the students, families, teachers, administration, and staff have a great summer break and we will look forward to seeing you all back at Will Rogers for a fantastic 2013-2014 school year.
The 2012-2013 school year is coming to a close and the call for parent participation in PTA for next year is here. The PTA needs officers, event organizers, and worker bees. We hope you will consider giving a little bit of your time to help the children, the teachers, and school. If you are interested please contact a current board member and let them know. Current members are:Lori Cayton, Kimberly Berry, Janet Stewart, Leah Dale, Amanda Honn, Robin Cornwell, Beckie Powell, Michelle Schaecher, and Kim Everett.
Congrats to Tammera Mittelstet in being awarded the Milken Educator Award. Tammera is Will Rogers Elementary and Highland Park Elementary’s Gifted Resource Coordinator. The Milken Educator Award comes with $25,000 to be spent at her discretion. State Superindendent Barresi stated “I’m thrilled for Ms. Mittelstet to win this prestigious award. To be recognized as an outstanding educator from among her peers by one of the top supporters of education in the country is an honor. To get to spend this money in any way she would like is a double treat.”
The last OSU football game of the season brought in $505.00 and the tailgate party was a lot of fun. We had a great turnout of volunteers and a number of 6th graders (5th graders from last year) that also came to help. I will try to get the total of all the money raised from the parking fundraiser posted soon. Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!
This is our last weekend of Gameday Parking for the year, and we have decided to plan a Tailgate Party! We’ve done this in the past and had a blast! Basically
everybody brings something for everybody to eat or drink, and we all graze while we are waving signs, parking cars, and visiting with fans.
The game is at 2:30 pm again, so we’ll start the “tailgate party” and parking at 11:30 am. Come one, come all! Invite other parents to come too!
The PTA has raised more money this year than ever before- way to go everybody!
If you want to know what the Will Rogers PTA is doing, please drop in on a meeting. The next meeting is scheduled for November 6, 2012 at 6:00 pm in the school library.
