Volunteers desperately needed to assist with UCS Millage Renewal!

Help! Volunteers desperately needed to assist with UCS Millage Renewal!

Volunteer opportunities are available for two separate activities.

1) One is a group of 5 who will help this Friday, Oct 31st from 11:00am-1:00 calling identified favorable voters reminding them of the election on November 4th. The phone bank will be at the Citizens’ Committee Office – 12900 Hall Road, Suite #250.

2) The other activity will be precinct volunteers who will distribute information to voters d…uring two time slots on election day at Bemis. The volunteer shifts are from 7:00-9:00am and from 3:30-7:00pm. Volunteers do NOT have to stay for the entire time, we can split the shifts, but it is desired to have 3 people at Bemis during the time slots.

The Bemis Parent Advisory Committee has a Sign Up Genius online registration for the activities: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0449aca82ca02-ucsmillage

As always, your support is greatly appreciated! Please share with other parents who may be able to help.
Thanks!

    6th Grade Memory Book

    Dear Browning 6th Grade Parents,

    It’s hard to believe our children are leaving Browning Elementary!  It seems like yesterday we were so excited for them to start Elementary.

    Each year a Memory Book is created with the help of all the parents.  It is also funded by Browning PTA.  I have volunteered to be the chair person this year with the assistance of PTA members and parents.

    We would like to make this book very special so we need all of the Browning 6th Grade Parents support.  What we need are pictures of your sixth graders.  Digital images work best.  If you could dig through your pictures, this is what we are looking for:

    • Individual Class Kindergarten picture
    • Any fun images taken during any Browning Events or during school
    • One image of your child doing something fun the summer before starting 6th Grade

    To keep things organized I have created an email account and Shutterfly account specifically for the Browning 6th Grade Memory book.

    PLEASE CHECK YOUR CHILD’S BACKPACK FOR INFO REGARDING UPLOADING PICTURES.  Or send an email to [email protected] and details will be sent to you directly.

    DEADLINE: March 10th, 2013 Please have your images uploaded as soon as possible or no later than March 10th 2013

    If we do not receive any images of your child he/she will not make some of the pages in the Memory book.

    If you are not able upload digital images to the site they can be scanned.  Please email me at [email protected].

    Thank you !

    PTA BALLOON LAUNCH 2010
    Thursday, Oct. 7th

    Who knew FUNraising could be so much fun?!

    Who knew FUNraising could be so much fun?!

    WOW! For the fifth year in a row, we have been blessed with perfect weather for our Balloon Launch.  With clear skies and mild winds, our balloons ascended high into the sky and drifted south east.  It will be interesting to see where they go this year.  We had fun setting them free and look forward to tracking them as they are returned.  Thus far, we’ve had at least 22 sent back to school.  Hooray!

    THANK YOU to all the families who contributed in some way – every donation helps!  Due to your generosity, we’ve raised over $6,500 with this direct donation fundraiser!   We greatly appreciate your support!

    Prizes were distributed at a school wide assembly on Friday, Jan. 14th.  Every child in attendance should have received a reward of some sort.  Congratulations to the Majlick Family for winning the Grand Prize drawing for the Family Getaway to Kalahari Resort!  Hope they have a great time!

    Many thanks to Lisa Larson for chairing this event & Lisa Williams for soliciting all of the prizes & donations for this important PTA fundraiser!  We greatly appreciate the support of the attached local businesses!  2010 Balloon Launch Recap
