Week of August 15-19, 2016
Hello Corinth Families!

Hope the first 1/2 day of school went well for 1-6th grades! I am looking forward to the first full week of school and welcoming the kindergarten classes. Some to-do's for the coming week:
*Come join the PTA for coffee on Tuesday to say hi to old and new friends after drop off!
*Do not forget to sign up for the new directory, even if it is just to update your child's teacher.
*Note the information below and save the date to bond with other parents from your child's grade at our fabulous parent parties!
Thanks!

Amy McCarthy
PTA President
NEW AND IMPROVED DIRECTORY!

Remember to check your email for an email from Scott William with your customized link to the new directory (perhaps even your spam folder). Follow the link to update your directory, (even if just with your child's teacher), join the PTA, volunteer and more! Questions or problems, contact Scott William.
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.
Parent Parties!
These fun adult-only events are a great way to connect with parents in your child's grade, and are one of our main annual fundraising activities. Parents should look for an evite and/or an invitation and donation envelope to come home via backpack mail (approximately 2 weeks before the party).

Suggested donation is $125 per student, but all donations are sincerely appreciated. The goal this year is to have 50% of Corinth families participate at some level.
Please be sure to put your child's name/grade level on your donation so we can track our progress better!

You may take your donation to the party, or send it in via backpack mail in the donation envelope. As of now, the 3rd grade parents may pay the suggested donation online through your directory account (go to the directory, select the PTA section, and look for the option to pay for parent parties). More online options to come soon!

Many thanks to our hosts this year!!

CORINTH BENEFIT AUCTION

The 3rd grade parent party is this Saturday and we've added something to the party, so heads up!

New this year for the Corinth Benefit Auction are silent auction grade baskets. Each grade has a theme for their basket and parents are encouraged to bring an item to the fall parent party. The easy thing about these baskets and your donations are that you can donate a really simple item and collectively they’ll add up to a really great package at the March 4, 2017 auction!

The 3rd grade theme is "Tailgate Time" - examples: Yeti cooler {multi-family donation}, plastic wear/utensils, games, card/dice games, fold-up chair, candy, Boulevard beer, 360 vodka, Nerf football, mini grill, charcoal, lighter, grill utensils, Bluetooth speaker, batteries, reusable cups, bottle opener...things you'd need at a tailgate party.

Please bring your item to the Aug. 20th party at the Hunter’s home {8433 Meadow Lane} and look for the basket to leave your donation. Other grades, stay tuned for your theme and more information.

FALL FEST
Save The Date - Fall Fest is Friday, September 23rd 5:30-8:00
In order to make this event a success we need at least one volunteer from every Corinth family. There are 3 shifts available. Please sign up via the Corinth directory or return the flyer you received during the Ice Cream Social.
Questions? Contact Sally Baratta or Tracy Kelting
Spirit Wear!
If you didn't get a chance to check out this year's spirit wear at the ice cream social, there are samples in the front office and be looking for a separate email with the order form. Deadline to order is August 30th. Questions? Contact Amy Neusel or Sally Hardinger.
Thank you!
