The Dragon Digest
Your Corinth PTA Newsletter

Hello, Corinth Families!

September and October are busy months at Corinth! It was disappointing that we had to postone Fall Fest but turned out to be the right decision. Join us on October 5th for the rescheduled event. Please see additional information below.

Fall Fundraising
Each year the PTA has a Fall Fundraising drive to raise money for Corinth to be able to continue to pay for our math aide, social worker, maker space, field trips and much more. The goal of the Fall Fundraising drive is to encourage ALL parents to contribute whether or not you are attending the parent parties. The suggested donation is $125 per student but any amount is very much appreciated.

The parent parties coming up in September and October are a way for the PTA to thank you for your donations. Your donations go directly to the school and does not cover any of the costs for the parent parties. Our wonderful hosts from each grade open up their homes, coordinate the parties and cover all of the costs associated with the parties including food and drinks. 

Be sure to visit the online directory to make your Fall Fundraising donation and mark your calendars for the parent parties if you are able to attend.

Bike Safety
The school is conducting two bike safety assemblies on September 24th for our children. It is a great opportunitiy to teach them the safe way to bike to school. Parents please note that our children will be told to continue to ride on the sidewalks. While this may be bothersome for walkers, it is imperative that we keep our kids safe and NOT allow them to bike in the streets. However, they will be taught proper edicate while passing walkers on the sidewalks and parents should continue to teach them as well. Thank you for your understanding!

Culver's Night

Culver's Restaurant Night is this week....Tuesday, September 11. Please join us that evening to support Corinth.

Talent Show
Lastly, we in are jeopordy of having to cancel the Talent Show next spring as we still don't have a chair. This is one event that the students really look forward to. Please let me know if you are interested.

Have a great week!
Leanne Beezley
PTA President

Culver's Restaurant Night

Please join us for the first Restaurant Night of the school year on Tuesday, Sept. 11th at Culver's! 10% of ALL sales (dine in or drive thru) from 5-8pm will be donated to the Corinth PTA - no flier is necessary so please spread the word to your non-Corinth family and friends as well. Extra, fun incentives with Culver's include having Corinth staff help deliver meals, AND the grade with the most attendance will receive a free coupon for custard (so be sure to sign in). Hope to see you there!

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.



2019 Corinth Auction


Classroom Treasures - An Auction Favorite
What is a better item to bid on then one that has been created by your own kiddo?!? Classroom treasures are an auction favorite and become an item to look at for years to come that reminds you of that specific year in your child's life. They can be one item that the entire class contributes to (think of a single painting that they all help paint) or individual items that are bid on separately (think of a cute/unique photo of your kiddo). So many of you have signed up to lead this charge - THANK YOU - but we are still in need of someone to head this effort in a few classes. If your kiddo is in Avery, Townsend, Monteil, Biller, Boeschen, Leaders or Pierson and you are interested in helping, contact Maggie Wasserman. This is super easy and just needs one person to lead the charge and make it happen - and the good news is – we have a Pintrest board with tons of ideas to pick from AND Mrs. Bogart LOVES to help with these – so you are not alone in this! Ideas are due soon - so don't delay and sign up today!
