Week of November 28- December 2, 2016
Hello Corinth Families!

Welcome back to school, Dragons! Hang on parents - I think December feels like the fastest month of the calendar.

Your to-do list for this week:
* Chat-N-Chew enrollment forms due on Tuesday.
* Come join with other parents on Friday, December 2, right after dropoff to have some coffee, meet/catch up, and hear Mr. Lowe give an update on the Maker Space!
* Don't forget to bring in used books and Corinth t-shirts.

Thanks!

Amy McCarthy
PTA President
PTA NEWS
PARENT COFFEE AND MAKER SPACE TOUR
Parents, join us for coffee, a word from Mr. Lowe and tour of the Maker Space on Friday, December 2nd. Parents may gather in the cafeteria after drop off for coffee and catching up. Mr. Lowe will provide updates on the school and give parents a tour of the Maker Space!

HOLIDAY GIFT FUND
The PTA is collecting funds to show our appreciation to the Corinth staff who do so much for the kids. If you would like to make a small ($5-10) contribution to the PTA's Holiday Gift Fund, we will purchase gift cards for the staff on behalf of the Corinth family.
Please send donations to the office by Friday, December 16th, and mark the envelope Bridget Hoffman - Holiday Fund.
See flyer here for more information.
Any questions, please contact Bridget Hoffman.

PARENT PARTIES
So far… we have raised over $31,000 & 60% of Corinth families have participated!

Can we get it to 75% in our final effort??

If you haven’t had the chance to donate, you still can! Send a check made out to “Corinth PTA” via backpack mail. Please put it in an envelope marked “Parent Parties” with your child’s grade.

CHAT-N-CHEW
Chat-n-Chew is here! Calling all 3rd-6th graders! Get out of the lunchroom and have some fun chatting with your friends about one of the awesome books chosen for your grade. Your leaders will have fun things planned for your discussion... all you have to do is read a good book.
Parents: Please look over the attached list of Chat-n-Chew books for this year. Each student will need to purchase, borrow or check out the books listed for their grade level. We need to have your child return the attached enrollment form if they would like to participate in order to place them in a group. Please return this form by November 29th!

See here for flyer with more information, enrollment form, and volunteer form.
Vineyard Vines - Corinth Shopping Night
Get some of your shopping done and support Corinth at the same time....and where better to do it than Vineyard Vines! Join us on the Plaza on Thursday, December 8 from 5pm - 9pm and get 10% off your entire purchase while Vineyard Vines gives 10% back to Corinth's PTA. It's a win/win so be sure to check your lists and check them twice!
USED BOOK SALE
It is that time of the year again. We are starting to collect used books for the used book sale at Corinth. The sale will run the week of February 6. We need kids books, chapter books and adult books. You can drop them off at the school. We will be partnering up again with Hooked on Books. After the sale, all of the books that are left will be donated to kids in the greater KC area.
GOT OLD CORINTH T-SHIRTS?
The 6th grade classes will be making a t-shirt quilt as their classroom treasure gift for the school auction. We are looking for used and/or new Corinth t-shirts to make this happen. We need all sizes, any year and any style. We will be collecting during the months of November and December. Look for the collection bin in the school office. Contact Amy Turpin for questions.
BOX TOPS
With all the yummy holiday food coming up, there are sure to be a couple of packages with the box tops for education on them. Do not forget to clip those box tops for Corinth! Every little bit counts.
DEWEY'S PIZZA RESTAURANT NIGHT
Eat pizza to raise funds! Join us at Dewey's Pizza at 3615 W 95th Street, Overland Park on Monday, January 9th. Present the paper certificate or via mobile device (see here) and up to 20% of all food and beverage purchases from 4-10 (dine-in or carry-out) will be donated to Corinth!
