The Dragon Digest
Your Corinth PTA Newsletter

Hello, Corinth Families!

Thank you to everyone that attended the PTA general membership meeting at Back to School Night. The 2018-2019 budget was approved and we are off to a great start.

MVP Training at Corinth is this week on Thursday, August 20 at 8:15 a.m. and 6 p.m. You must be MVP trained to work one-on-one with students, go on field trips, volunteer as a Dragon Dad, etc.

Fall Fest is Friday, September 7th less than two weeks away! Don't forget to sign up to volunteer. The signup genius is listed below.

For you planners out there, Spirit Week is coming up the week of September 3rd leading up to Fall Fest. 

  • Tuesday, 9/4 - Beach Bums/Hawaiian Day
  • Wednesday, 9/5 - Crazy Hair Day
  • Thursday, 9/6 - Favorite Color Day
  • Friday, 9/7 - Corinth Spirit Wear

Have a great week!
Leanne Beezley
PTA President


Youth in Action

Calling all 5th and 6th graders! Now is your chance to sign up for “Youth In Action”  - a Corinth community service group performing monthly service activities to make our community a better place! Please see the attached form for additional details and to sign up for this great opportunity.

Please note that the t-shirts are the same as last year so any 6th graders that are returning to YIA and have a shirt that fits (and know where it is!) won’t need to order a new one. 

Fall Fest
Join us at our annual fun family fall fest event.

Friday, September 7, 5:30-8:00 p.m.

We are so excited for this year’s Fall Fest!  What a fun way to kick off the school year with one of the most fun evenings of the year!

Please make sure you return your order form for wristbands and food by Friday, August 31!  Flyers were sent home via back pack mail and peachjar. You can also pay via the Corinth Directory at  directory.corinthdragons.com

Another reminder that this is a parent run event. Without volunteers the games and rides will not be available. As in years past, each family attending the fall fest is expected to volunteer one shift to make this huge annual event a continued success. Luckily that leaves plenty of time to enjoy the night with your family! This year we are unable to rely on youth volunteers as heavily as we have in past years so we desperately need adult volunteers. 
Currently we will have to close games and rides for the 2nd and 3rd shifts if we do not get enough volunteers.  Please take a moment to visit the signup genius and volunteer for one shift, or email our volunteer coordinators and they will happily get you signed up.

Without your help this event will not be a continued success! Any additional questions about Fall Fest please email your committee chairs Tracy Kelting tracy@gmail.com or Sally Baratta sally@therowanteam.com


PTA Membership


As we start off the new school year, please take a moment to pay your PTA dues for the year. Dues can be paid by check with the attached form or online with your credit card or PayPal through the Corinth directory under the PTA tab. Dues are $10 per adult.

By joining the Corinth PTA, you are also joining Kansas PTA and National PTA, and aligning yourself with the largest children’s advocacy group in the country.

PTA membership will provide you with full access to the Corinth directory.

Please remember to update your student’s teacher information when you pay your dues.

Thank you!

2019 Corinth Auction

The 2019 Corinth Auction may be seven months away, but planning is underway to make it the best yet. As Corinth PTA's largest fundraiser, we need YOUR help in making it a success! There are so many ways to support the event, such as hosting a parent or grade level party. In the past, parent hosted parties have been an auction favorite. These theme parties are targeted to a specific grade level or can be adults only. If you have a fun idea and are interested in hosting a party this year, contact  Jessica Klocke or  Stacey Grecian for more information. Want to get involved with the auction in other ways?  Contact  Betsy Ballard or  Lindsay Peattie to learn more.

Corinth Dragons Online Directory

( directory.corinthdragons.com)

Remember to update your student’s listing in the online directory! Please do not make a duplicate entry. Your information from last year will be in there.

  • Login to the directory
  • From Account drop down menu on the right select Edit Listing
  • Edit your Profile
  • Enter teacher name for each student (don't forget this step)
  • Make any changes to address or contact information
  • Hit Update Directory Button at the bottom of the screen

If you have forgotten your username or password information, there is a new reset feature. Text RESET to 913.380.1465 and you will be able to reset your login credentials.

New Corinth families go to the directory website and choose Add Listing from the menu at the top of the screen. Enter all of your information and hit the Update Directory Button when you are finished.

To put the directory app on your phone - open the directory website on your phone and it will give you the option of putting the directory icon on your home screen. This is a very handy.

Once you have paid your PTA dues for the year you will have full access to the directory.

Fall Fundraising Parties

Donate to support our PTA including our Social Worker, Math Specialist, field trips, Maker’s Space and more!

A donation of $125 per child is suggested. Donations of all sizes are sincerely appreciated! Watch for an Invitation & Donation Envelope two weeks prior to the party.

New Families

Are you new to the Corinth Elementary community? Do you need help figuring out what a Dragon Dad is or how to navigate the car line? It isn't always easy learning the acronyms used at a new school or where you can turn to for information. We've tried to make it easier for our new families by giving you a contact. Mandy Starr will help answer your questions or point you in the right direction when she can't.

Want to stay connected? Follow the school and PTA on Social Media.

Please feel free to reach out with any Corinth Elementary question, big or small. Email  ALBinOz2003@yahoo.com or Phone 913-972-4360
