Solar Eclipse!

Solar Eclipse!

Greetings Earthlings!

The Solar Eclipse of 2017 is going to be a marvelous sight and rare educational opportunity.  The PWM PTO purchased certified eclipse glasses for the entire school and they have been distributed to homeroom teachers.  All glasses are both ISO and CE certified and come with complete safety instructions and certifications printed on the back of each.  We encourage you to review this safety information with your children before the eclipse so they know how to wear the glasses properly.  Below is the permission slip which gives permission for your student to observe the eclipse with their class on Monday, August 21.  If you would like your student to observe the eclipse please fill this out and return it to school Monday morning.  If you have already filled out and returned a yellow permission slip you don’t need to do anything further.  If you would like to volunteer to help or find out more about plans for viewing please contact your child’s teacher.  For more info about the eclipse check out https://eclipse2017.nasa.gov

Happy viewing!

Northside Soccer Coaches Meeting

Northside Soccer Coaches Meeting

Calling all PWM parents. Registration for the fall youth soccer season will begin this summer in July. Northside Soccer would like to invite all parents interested in coaching a team this fall to join us for a coaches meeting at 7:00 PM on Thursday, June 15 at Happen in Northside.

Every soccer team needs a coach. And every parent is welcome to coach. Every team can and should have more than one person coaching. Every team needs 2 adult coaches and up to 3 coaches can be on the sidelines during a game.

If your child has been playing soccer on a Northside team, and you’ve been watching from the spectator’s side of the field, Northside Soccer is inviting you to switch sides this season and support your child’s team as a coach or coach’s assistant. Lot’s of soccer experience/skill is not needed or expected.

We want to start the fall season strong. Having a full compliment of coaches will help Northside Soccer recruit early and give assurance to every child who wants to play that Northside Soccer will have a team for them.

At the coaches meeting we will discuss what coaching for Northside/SAY soccer involves. Primarily, coaches organize and run weekly practices, attend all the team soccer games, participate in one preseason coaches training and complete concussion certification, and make sure that the kids have a fun and safe time. We’ll also decide how many teams we can support for the upcoming fall season. We can also discuss how to coach a team with little to no previous soccer experience if that is needed. No commitment is required to attend the meeting, but we will ask during the meeting if you are willing to coach a team.

Please send a message to soccer@pwmpto.org to let us know you are interested.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Thanks for supporting Northside Soccer.

Summer Garden Care

Summer Garden Care

Our kids have worked hard in the garden this spring! We need to keep the garden tended over the summer so that they can be inspired by a thriving garden when they return.

Sign up for a week at a time, starting on the Sunday listed. Each week requires watering, weeding, and harvest. One person can do all, but it can be more fun together. Watering is most essential because the plants will die without water. If the slots for a week are incomplete, please look out for essential things that need done in the garden.

Thank you so much!
