Hello Corinth Families!

It's been so nice this weekend to see a little sunshine after all of our April showers. Hope the nice weather holds a little longer!

Good luck with state assessments this week Dragons!

Your to-do list for this week:
  • Stay after dropoff on Tuesday, have coffee with other parents, and learn what PBIS assemblies are all about!
  • Walking School Bus on Wednesday.
  • No school on Friday. Come join classmates on the day off at Skate City!
  • Don't forget to sign up for Neon Nights (mother-son dance) by Friday. And, can you volunteer to help with the event? See signup genius link below.

Thanks,

Amy McCarthy
PTA President

PTA NEWS

Spring Walking School Bus is here!

Corinth Elementary Walking Wednesday campaign encourages students and parents to walk or bike to school. Our program promotes healthy habits, reduces traffic congestion, boosts our sense of community, and encourages our cities to provide safe routes to school.

Please plan on walking or biking with your student(s) on Wednesday April 5, 12, 19, and 26. Our program also provides Walking School Bus drop-off sites for parents who would like their child to participate, but may live too far for them to walk, or are not able to join them.

Are you a parent who would like to assist with Walking Wednesdays? If so, sign up here.

Need more information? Please contact Nicole Harris, this year’s PTA Walking School Bus Chair at (816) 665-3095 or by email.

The 14th Annual Corinth Dragon Dash presented by Larson Building Company is right around the corner! This is a family favorite community activity at Corinth and one of our biggest fundraisers. We are excited to offer these great prizes to encourage you and your child to raise money to support Corinth.

If you raise $15, you will win a Foo’s ice cream party. If you raise $25, you will win a Foo’s ice cream party PLUS a Dragon Dash water bottle. If you raise more than $25, you will win a Foo’s ice cream party, Dragon Dash water bottle PLUS a chance to win gift certificates from Urban Air, Learning Tree, Mely’s and many more local Corinth businesses!

All forms and donations are due by FRIDAY, APRIL 28 in order to be eligible for prizes.

Please see the link below for full pledge program details and how to participate.

PARENT COFFEE
Come to the parent coffee scheduled for April 11th, hosted by the hospitality committee. Mr. Lowe and the PBIS committee are going to speak about the PBIS model (what it is and how we as parents can reinforce it at home). Come socialize with other parents, and learn a little more about how our school operates!
NEON NIGHTS
Get ready to get your groove on! The mother-son dance is April 21 from 7-9. Registration forms and payment are due to the office by April 14. See attached flyer for more information, and registration form.

Sign up to volunteer! Neon Nights needs a lot of help to make the evening go! See the signup genius link here to help!

GOLF TOURNAMENT
Take the afternoon off and play golf! Make a foursome with your friends and relatives and support Corinth. Shotgun start at 1 o'clock May 1st. Sign up or questions contact Paul Barbre.

SAVE THE DATE FOR CORINTH’S FIELD DAY!

Spring has officially sprung! And that means FIELD DAY is quickly approaching!

FIELD DAY will be held on Friday, May 12th (Rainout will be Monday, May 15th)

4th – 5th Graders 9:00-11:15

Kindergarten 12:30 – 2:00

1st – 3rd Graders 12:45 – 2:45

As with previous years, 6th Graders will help coordinate the activities, however we will still need several parent volunteers to prep and manage stations at the event. A sign-up sheet will sent out in the coming weeks, so please consider if you can volunteer for half or full day of FIELD DAY fun!

Any questions please contact Maureen Schwartz.

SMSD PRE-K CLASSES
There are 14 schools
in the district offering pre-kindergarten classes for the 2017-18 school year. While our school isn’t able to offer the program yet, there may be a school nearby that does [Pres. note - Briarwood and Trailwood are probably the closest offerings to Corinth]. The program is free for qualifying students and there’s a tuition-based option for non-qualifying students. The schools will hold a pre-k enrollment day on April 14, 2017. If you or anyone you know has a child who will be four on or before August 13, please invite them to attend. If they have questions, they can learn more here. Pre-K enrollment application packets are available online. Parents should complete all forms in the packet and bring it with them to enroll on April 14. Pre-kindergarten students must accompany their parent to enroll.

THANK YOU

SPRING FLING
Thank you to our Spring Fing Chair, Katie Chaplin, and her committee: Natalie Frank,
Kristin Fink, Diane Gonzalez, Krista Williams, Tanya Rodecker Wendt, Jamie Elwood, Sally Rowan Baratta, and Monica Simoneau. Many girls and their escorts had a wonderful time at Morroccan Nights due to the efforts of the committee and the many other volunteers who helped with treats, tables, etc!
