From our Pretoria PA:
Movie Night was a huge success! Thank you to everyone for coming! We especially want to thank the support staff and all our parent volunteers who made it all work. Without you, we could not do any of it. Thank you!!! The Middle School bake sale was also very successful. They made R3,540 in sales! Thank you MS parents for your baked goods! This money will go directly toward the MS socials and the first one is Friday, September 28th. The remaining profit from the night was R2,350 and will go toward lunch for the children on Action Day (September 29th) and future PA events.
Did you miss our PA meeting last week? The minutes are available to read on the Pretoria Portal. Click on “Parents’ Association Info” and you will see a link to “Meeting Minutes & Budget”.
Our next big event is Boo in the Boot on October 26th. It is a Halloween themed evening with “trick or treating” in the parking lot. Watch for a sign up in the next week to decorate a boot (trunk) and pass out candy! That will be a HUGE help! Questions? Contact our Events Coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have an enjoyable International Day of Peace and Heritage Day.
