    Brandon PTA announcements for the week November 4, 2013

    PTA REFLECTIONS PROGRAM – Projects due this Friday, November 8th
    All “Believe, Dream, Inspire” Reflections projects need to be turned into the school office by this Friday, November 8th.
    Students can create a new, original piece of artwork inspired by the theme in one of six categories: dance choreography, film production, literature, musical composition, photography and visual arts.
    Entry forms and rules are available online at www.capta.org/sections/programs/reflections.cfm
    Unfortunately, due to a lack of parent volunteers, there will be no Reflections Reception and Gala this year. Instead, judging will take place by various dignitaries and the winners will move onto district.
    Questions? Contact Ruth McGolpin at gopar1@cox.net

    Opening day BOWWOW (Bike on Wednesday, Walk on Wednesday) was a great turnout with 251 participants. Please remember to bike, walk, scooter, or skateboard every Wednesday and be counted by your teachers. The winning class at the end of the school year will win a grand prize. Get Fit, Have Fun, Enjoy Friends, BOWWOW!

    PTA-sponsored After-School Movies are offered during Fall Parent-Teacher Conference days, November 18 – November 26. The movies will run from 1:15 pm – 3:00 pm each day. The movies are $3 per day and include popcorn and water.
    Adult supervision ends at 3:15 pm and any child who is not picked up by then will be escorted to the office.
    Kindergartners will be escorted from their playground to the MPR at 1:10 pm and will need a permission slip for each day. Permission slips will be in the Friday Folders or with the Kindergarten teachers.

    Unfortunately, not all the Genevieve’s orders came in on Friday. The company mistakenly sent several of Brandon’s orders to another school. The missing orders are being tracked down and will take at least one week to arrive at Brandon.
    If you did not receive your order, please contact Heidi Steelsmith at 685-4089 or via email at hsteel@verizon.net so she can locate your order and get it to you as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding of this unforeseen delay.

    Starting next Friday, November 8th, Brandon students and families can sell See’s candies to friends, relatives, colleagues and neighbors. 2nd-6th graders will earn a percentage of their sales toward their 6th grade CIMI Science Camp. Kindergarten and 1stgrade sales will go towards the general science camp scholarship fund. The fundraiser will run from Friday, November 8th to Friday, November 22nd. Candy will be delivered to Brandon the week before Winter Break. Take advantage of this great opportunity, and help support your child’s camp fund! Questions? Please email Krista Craig at kcraig@
