The Dragon Digest

Your Corinth PTA Newsletter
Week of August 8-12, 2016
Welcome Back, Corinth Families!

Can you believe it is time to go back to school already?! I am so excited for the coming year. Again this year, look for this weekly dragon digest email to update you on information, important dates, and opportunities to volunteer at Corinth. We are very excited to be rolling out a new and improved customized online directory (more details below) this year to help everyone stay connected and involved.

Good luck on the first (1/2) day of school this week. I'm looking forward to another great year!

Amy McCarthy
PTA President
NEW AND IMPROVED DIRECTORY!

Look for an email from Scott William this week with a customized link to the online directory this year. New this year is an "all-in-one" signup, so that when you update/add your information in the directory, you may also join the PTA and volunteer for our many fabulous committees. Each family can create their own account(s). With your PTA membership comes full access to the online directory (even on your phone!) with maps, class lists, direct links to call/email, and more. Anybody may purchase a print directory (available sometime in September) for $5. Everybody will be able to edit their information, volunteer, and purchase various items throughout the year.
Please note that we will no longer be using a shared password.
Big thanks go to Scott William for his innovations and hard work with this project!
WE ALL SCREAM FOR ICE CREAM!

Ice Cream Social: Wednesday from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m.
  • Class lists will be posted in the Cafeteria, and in each classroom (Classroom assignments should be e-mailed via Skyward early this week)
  • From 5 to 5:30, teachers will be in their classrooms to greet you, and you can drop off your school supplies if you have them ready.
  • Purchase Corinth Spirit Wear
  • Ice Cream on the Playground!
SCHOOL SUPPLIES

If you pre-ordered school supplies in the spring, you can pick them up in the Gym multiple times this week: Monday: 10-1, 4-6; Tuesday 10-1, 4-6; or Wednesday 10-1. If you ordered online PLEASE bring your receipt from Educational Products Inc. Please contact Dani Beaver with questions.

If you did not pre-order supplies see the Corinth School Supply List.

Also, an updated list with information about labelling/do not label information should be coming from Mr. Lowe via Skyward early this week.
BOO-HOO COFFEE

Please join the PTA in the Cafeteria after drop-off on Tuesday, August 16th (the kindergarten 1st day). We'll shed a nostalgic tear as our babies advance a year in school, welcome new parents and catch up with returning parents. Stay for a sip, or a cup.
