It’s Fall Fundraiser Time!!!

The P.T.O. is excited to announce our Fall Fundraiser! This year we are selling Otis Spunkmeyer Cookies, Little Caesars pizza kits, and Legendary Pies (formerly Market Day). Our goal is to raise $25,000 to be able to purchase school supplies for all elementary students for next year! It’s a big goal, but we think we can make it! If our students sell 2,500 items total altogether, our principal Mr. Bryan will kiss a REAL LIVE PIG… ?? You read that right!!! Kickoff is Friday October 6th. Order forms and payment are to be turned in Monday October 23rd. Pickup is Thursday November 16th, which is also the second parent teacher conference night. Anyone interested in helping with the delivery/pickup, please contact us at pto@riverside.k12.oh.us

Parent/Teacher Conferences are Thursday November 9th and 16th. P.T.O. will be providing meals for our elementary teachers. Their conferences begin right at the end of the school day and can be booked clear through the evening. Many times this gives teachers no time to get something to eat; so we wanted to help them out! If you are interested in helping with conference meals, please contact us at pto@riverside.k12.oh.us!

Fall Parties will be in November! Friday November 17th is the 5th and 6th grade party. Tuesday November 21st is the Pre K through 4th grade parties. If you signed up to be a party volunteer, information will be sent home in October with your student.

Our Box Tops for Education collection is in full swing! Each month we will reward our winning grade level that collects the most Box Tops! At the end of the year, we will have a party for the overall winning grade level for the year! Make sure to sign up at www.boxtops4education.com and enter the sweepstakes to win bonus Box Tops, and download the app to your smartphone to earn extra Box Tops on select purchases at the store. Clip and send in Box Tops in a ziploc bag marked with your student’s teacher’s name. The P.T.O. submits Box Tops to the company twice during the school year. Our first submission deadline is November 1st (Many Box Tops have this expiration date; so be sure to send them in soon, as expired Box Tops are not accepted.); so we must have our first round of Box Tops sent in to the school by Friday October 27th! If you have Box Tops at home, PLEASE send them in!

Our first meeting was a huge success with twenty members in attendance. Thank​ you to all those that came! We look forward to seeing you at our October meeting on the 2nd and our November meeting on the 6th. Both meetings will be held in the library at 6:30pm.

We hope to see you there!

Sincerely,The P.T.O. Officers
