Grandparents Lunch
is coming up on Friday, November 16. Let them know that the Book Fair will be going on this  Friday so they can stay to shop for holiday gifts!

Thanks for your Service!

A special thanks to all of the families that extended an invitation to their Veteran for the assembly last Wednesday. With over 40 Veterans attending the event, the Corinth community was able to see and hear from true heroes that have served our country. Thank you also to all that created a poster - they have decorated the halls and show Corinth's pride for our country. This event was made possible by the PTA - thank you to Rick Cherra, Lindsay Peattie, Jeff Stewart, and Dan Tyler for all you did to make this event a success. 


Have a great week!

Leanne Beezley
PTA President

PTA NEWS

SPIN! Restaurant Night

SPIN! Restaurant Night is being moved up to NEXT WEDNESDAY, November 14 due to the Prairie Village tree lighting ceremony and holiday open house night at Corinth Square on the original date. The book fair is also going on next week and will be open late on Wednesday. So support the Corinth PTA, buy some books, and then head over the SPIN! for dinner!

You must mention Corinth, show the flyer, or show SPIN! Pizza PV's Facebook post to count toward Corinth's total amount raised. SPIN! will donate 20% of this amount to the Corinth PTA! 

Tag SPIN! on social media (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, @spinpizza and #spinpizza) and SPIN! will be happy to engage with your posts to amplify them to our audience and guests.

Book Fair

The 2018 Corinth Elementary Book Fair is this week in the Library! Come get your holiday shopping done early.

Tuesday, Nov 13 - 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Wednesday, Nov 14 - 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. (open late)
Thursday, Nov 15 - 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

We have a few more open shifts...events like this are not possible without parent involvement. This is a fun and easy way to work directly with the students and help to foster a love of reading. Please sign up for a shift or two!

2019 Corinth Auction

The Corinth Auction relies on donations to make it successful. While we have a donations committee that is busy at work contacting local companies and filling out online forms to gather as many donations as possible - we also need YOUR help! Take a look at this flyer to see what we are looking for and be sure to fill it out and return to the Corinth office if you have something to contribute. Have other ideas not listed - write them in!! Did we also mention that all donations are tax deductible and all funds raised go back to support programs at Corinth that YOUR kiddo will benefit from!

Box Tops

Thanks to all of the families, teachers, and staff who supported the Fall Box Tops for Education drive. We raised over $343 from clipping box tops this summer and fall, and we appreciate your support. As promised, we have done Target gift card drawings for the participating grades. Our winners are as follows:
 
For 1st Grade:  Hughes Peattie
For 2nd Grade:  Elyse Coffland
For 3rd Grade:  Sophia Schlichting
For 4th Grade:  Evelyn DeSalvo
For 5th Grade:  Merrill Patt
For 6th Grade:  Owen Pieters
 
Also, the class room with the highest participation is 4th Grade, Mrs. Boeschen's class, so congratulations for winning an extra recess from Mr. Lowe.Keep clipping box tops, as they will count toward the Spring collection drive.
