Once trained, all you need to do is go online using this link and fill out your information for a background check. The new background check process only takes 24-48 hours to complete and then you will be ready to volunteer!
Staff Holiday Gift Fund
During the holiday season, we want to show our appreciation to the Corinth staff who do so much for our kids!  If you would like to make a contribution to the PTA’s Holiday Gift Fund, we will purchase gift cards on behalf of the entire Corinth family. Any contribution, big or small, is much appreciated. This Fund is used for all staff other than classroom teachers. You room parents are in charge of classroom teachers.

Please deliver all donations to the office by Monday December 17th and mark them “Nicole Rolofson- Holiday Fund.” Please make all checks payable to the Corinth PTA.

OR pay online through the Corinth Directory using PayPal or a credit card. Various payment amounts have been provided as options for your donation but if you'd like to donate another amount, checks are also welcome. The directory functionality unfortunately does not include an option to write in the amount of your donation. Any donation amount is greatly appreciated!!

If you have any questions, please contact Nicole Rolofson at  rolofsonnicole@gmail.com.
Corinth Auction - March 2, 2019
The end of 2018 is drawing near, which means the Corinth Auction is literally right around the corner. Save the Dates went out last week - please be sure to check your child’s backpack and save the date in your calendar. We are also wrapping up all final donation and corporate sponsorships. If you have tickets, vacation homes, passes for experiences, a business you want to promote to the Corinth family - contact us today!  All donations are tax deductible and all funds raised help us support our social worker, math aide, and many other activities the Corinth PTA helps organize!  
Chat N Chew
Calling all 3rd through 6th graders! Get out of the lunchroom and have some fun chatting with your friends about one of the awesome books selected for your grade. Your leaders will have fun things planned for your discussion....all you have to do is read a good book.

Attached is the list of books for each grade and the enrollment form. Please return the form by December 12 to be included in a group.

Groups will meet in January, February, March and April. Be sure to bring a drink and sack lunch so your group can maximize your time together.

If you have any questions, please contact Amber Lutes, amberlutes@icloud.com or corinthchatnchew@gmail.com.
Winter Months = Increased Lice Outbreaks

For a little over a month, there have been several cases of lice reported in various grade levels at Corinth. With the winter months, there is more chances for kids to share hats, etc. - making it easier for it to spread.  Please take some precautions to ensure your child does not have it and/or does not continue to spread it. First, make sure you check your own child(ren). Second, be sure to take some preventative measures - such as using a shampoo and spray that includes tea tree oils - which lice do not like. If you have a daughter, please encourage them to wear their hair in a pony tail, braid or bun.  These simple tricks will help stop the spread of lice and get it out of Corinth!
