The Dragon Digest

Your Corinth PTA Newsletter
Week of September 7-11, 2015
Hello Corinth Families!

Thanks to all of you who attended our PTA meeting on Back to School Night. We are so lucky to have Mr. Lowe as our chief Dragon, and his ability to remember all the teachers' names, in random order, is just one of his many assets. I hear he's also quite good at serving ice cream.

Enjoy the rest of your long weekend!


Erin Herbst
PTA President

5. PARENTS of 4th Graders: Attend Annual Parent Party on Friday Night

These fun, casual, adult-only events, are a great way to connect with parents in your child's grade, and are held in conjunction with our annual fundraising.


We are raising funds for the PTA's major financial initiatives (Spanish Program and Math Aide). The suggested donation is $125/child. Of course, donations of all sizes are sincerely appreciated and anonymous. We are grateful for what ever amount your budget allows. Don't forget that this is a tax-deductible donation, and to find out if your employer will match your donation.

If you prefer to pay by check, please place your check in the envelope included with your Parent Party invitation, and bring to the party, or deliver it to the school office.

*Please consider adding 3% to your donation to help us cover the costs associated with accepting credit card payments. Suggested donation would be $128.75/child.
There's Still Time to:
1. JOIN THE PTA

Is your child interested in running? Corinth will be kicking off a fall running club for all grades starting next week! Join us each Wednesday from 3:20-4:00. We'll meet in the gym, get a few stretches in, and then head to the track to do some laps. The club will last for six weeks (September 16 - October 21). Each participating child must have a permission slip, which can be downloaded here, and must wear tennis shoes and bring a water bottle! Please bring the signed permission slip to the first meeting on Sept. 16. We look forward to running with you!
