The Dragon Digest
Your Corinth PTA Newsletter

Hello, Corinth Families!

Hope everyone enjoyed Lunch on the Lawn last week and the Kindergarten Parent Party. The 4th and 6th grade Parent Parties are scheduled for next weekend. Don't forget to make your Fall Fundraising donation!

Please consider helping out the auction committee this week on Thursday, September 27 for Auction BLITZ Day! They are looking for volunteers to help solicit donations for the auction...more information below.

Attached is information from the district about Food Service and helpful Nutrition Nuggets.

Have a great week!

2019 Corinth Auction

Join us for Auction BLITZ DAY!
One of the easiest ways we obtain donations for the Corinth Auction is our annual BLITZ DAY. Join us at 9:30am on Thursday, September 27 at Lindsay Peattie’s house as we split off into groups to go to the local shopping areas to request donations. Not someone that likes to ask for something? Don’t worry – you’ll be with a buddy and it really is the easiest way for us to collect awesome items for you to bid on in March. So, mark your calendar and join us THIS THURSDAY. We’ll have a quick cup of coffee before assigning locations and sending you off to collect the goods. This is the perfect way to do your part and only requires a couple hours of your time!  Hope to see you there – grab a friend too – the more, the merrier!

Fall Fest NEW DATE

Fall Fest has been postponed to Friday, October 5 from 5:30-8:00, with all the same fun and food as previously planned. Additional tickets can be purchased through backpack mail using the attached flyer or at the door the night of the event.

All previously purchased food and wristbands will be honored on the new date. Please keep track of the wristbands and food tickets you already received. If you have not received your wristbands and food tickets, we are working to get those to you, but rest assured we have a master list and you can always pick them up at the table in the lobby the night of Fall Fest. 

Spirit week will not be repeated, and we enjoyed all of the festivities this week! We WILL wear CES spirit week on the new date, Oct. 5.

Volunteers: please confirm that you can work the new date, Oct. 5. If you need to change your sign-up, please do so online - cancel if the new date does not work or sign up if the new date does work now.  


If you have any questions please contact Tracy Kelting  tracykelting@gmail.com or Sally Baratta  sally@therowanteam.com

Skating Parties

Mark your calendars for the annual Skating Parties at Skate City. Proceeds to be donated to the Corinth Elementary PTA.

  • Wednesday, October 3 from 4-6 p.m.
  • Tuesday, December 4 from 4-6 p.m.
  • Tuesday, April 2 from 4-6 p.m.

Admission is $5.00 per person ($1.50 traditional skate rental). Please note that parents must accompany their children to this event as there is no adult supervision.

Fall Box Tops for Education Drive (Now-October 26th)

It’s time to start turning in those the Box Tops for Education!  This is a super easy way to help the Corinth Community. Simply look for the Box Tops for Education coupon on the products you use, clip it, and put it in a ziploc bag. Send the bag to the Corinth Office with the name of your child, grade, and teacher. The class with the highest participation by October 26th wins an extra recess from Mr. Lowe. Also, all students who bring in any number of Box Tops will be entered for a drawing for a $5 Target gift card. We will select one student per grade.

If clipping Box Tops is not your thing, they also have an app you can download to your phone and register to support Corinth. After you have the app, you scan your grocery receipts and the Box Top products should credit our account. https://www.boxtops4education.com/bonusapp

Box Tops is also a great way that grandparents and other family members can support our kids, so be sure to ask others if they can help, too. If you miss turning in your Box Tops by the October 26th deadline, do not worry! We will count any late arrivals toward the spring drive. If you have questions, feel free to contact Jill Fraley at jillfraley@gmail.com.

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
