The Dragon Digest

Your Corinth PTA Newsletter
Week of May 15-19, 2017
Hello Corinth Families!

It is the last week of school Dragons (and my penultimate newsletter)! Can you believe how this year has flown? Things are starting to wrap up, but there is still a to-do list.

Your to-do list for this week:
  • I still need 2 volunteers for Monday, May 22 with the SMAC Clothing Exchange. It is a great opportunity to do good for our Shawnee Mission community.
  • Plan ahead, save money, and benefit the 5th graders by ordering school supplies for the 2017-18 school year via EPI. Paper forms are due to the office Wednesday (may still order online through June 21).
  • The fundraising golf tournament was rained out, and now is rescheduled for June 26. Any golfers available this new date?
  • Come enjoy the always-entertaining Variety Show Friday at 8:30!
  • Remember that Friday is a half day with dismissal at 12:30.

Happy Mother's Day to our many Dragon Moms out there!

Amy McCarthy
PTA President

The Corinth PTA currently supports the learning environment in the school by providing funds for two positions, a math aide and the Young Spanish program. As part of our ongoing efforts to provide the best education for our students, we are seeking the input of our parent community to aid future planning. Please complete the following survey regarding the current Spanish program and allocation of these community raised funds.
Please take a minute and complete the survey here.


We are looking for 4 Corinth volunteers to help the SMAC Clothing Exchange on Monday, May 22nd. I can say from personal experience, that this is a great volunteer experience (and a great excuse to clean out the closets for a donation at the same time!). Please contact Amy McCarthy if you are able to come (I know school will be out, but you can even bring the kids to help! Kids under 12 just need adult supervision)
Located at Broadmoor Center

About the SMAC Clothing Exchange:
Clothing Exchange is made possible with SMSD PTA volunteers, in addition to monetary donations.

It is staffed 100%, by volunteer parents and families within our district.

Each PTA Unit in the district donates money to be used to buy new underwear and socks.

Volunteer Opportunities:

  • Sort donations
  • Hang donations
  • Assist shoppers

Each PTA Unit has an assigned volunteer day, however, anyone is welcome to volunteer more often!

Elementary schools are assigned from 8:30-11:00am

Tips for volunteering:

  • Arrive 30 minutes before shopping area opens
  • Elementary schools - send 4 volunteers
  • Children under 12 need to have an adult with them.
  • Please see flyer here for more information about the Clothing Exchange.
