Your Corinth PTA Newsletter
Week of December 19 - December 21, 2016
Hello Corinth Families!

I am sending warm thoughts to everyone this cold and snowy evening. Hope everyone stayed safe and bundled this weekend!

Your to-do list this week:
* Wednesday will be both full of fun (sing-a-long in the gym at 9:30 followed by classroom parties at 10:00) and short (early dismissal at 12:30).
* Winter break for the kids runs from December 22-January 3. Everyone should be back, refreshed, and ready to learn in the new year on Wednesday January 4.

Look for my next newsletter Tuesday night, January 3. Have a wonderful break Dragons! I wish you all a happy and peaceful new year.

PTA President

Stock the Bar

While you're out holiday shopping, please consider donating new wine/beer glasses, bar tools or wine fridge to provide the complete the Stock the Bar live item. All spirits, wine and mixers have graciously been donated by Worldwide Wine and Spirits.

We would like to collect all items by 1.31.2017. Items may be dropped off at the school office or delivered to Jenn Miller's Home. Sign up:

Grade Party Hosts Needed

Auction parties are always a top seller for kids and parents alike. If you have a child in the following classes and can host a party, please contact Stacey Grecian or Jessica Klocke.

  • 3rd grade girls
  • 5th grade girls
  • 6th grade boys

We are also looking for a few more parent parties, so please consider hosting a great time with a few other fellow Corinth parents!

To host, you simply come up with a theme, date, time and location. The auction committee will advertise and sell your party at the March 4th event and then pass along details of those who paid to attend. The hosts cover the cost to have the party, which in return is your donation to the auction.

We invite anyone with comments or questions on the Spanish program or an interest in serving on the Spanish Special Committee to email Dani Beaver, the PTA VP of Academic Enrichment.
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.
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.
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!
Staff Holiday Luncheon
The Corinth staff enjoyed a yummy lunch together from Buca Di Beppo on Thursday. And, to help them enjoy it over an even longer period of time, some special parents volunteered to help cover recess duty! Thanks to Andrea Deschane and Stacey Stinson for coordinating the lunch and to Paul Barbre, Kristin Fink, Stacey Grecian, and Sarah Mackay for helping with recess coverage.
