Faces of Parker Woods Tile Mural

It’s not too late to turn in your order form for the Faces of Parker Woods Tile Mural. It is our goal to have every student’s face smiling down from the mural! Please turn in your order form even if you are not making a donation. Sponsors are available for any student who can’t afford a tile! We will be collecting the orders before and after school today and tomorrow as well as at the CommUnity Dinner and Dance next week. We can take payment by credit card as well!
Thanks!

Open Positions!

Open Positions!

Parker Woods Montessori Parents and Families,

The PWM PTO is looking to fill a few key leadership positions. These positions currently have volunteers, but they are looking for backup help or an apprentice to take over for next year. Please read the description and reach out if you feel this is a way you could help improve your child’s educational experience! You can respond to president@pwmpto.org for more information.

TREASURER / ACCOUNTANT: Our Treasurer has been maintaining and cleaning up our records, but due to a tight schedule is not able to be as involved as he was in the past. We are looking for someone with accounting experience who can help organize the records, provide public accountability, breakdown the budget into more specific fundraising goals and maintain the paperwork necessary for our non-profit status. Time commitment: 1-2 monthly hour long meetings, consistent email responses and online presence.

SECRETARY: Our secretary has been wonderful, but she is not always able to attend every meeting. We are looking to support her with an assistant who can alternate note taking and transcribing notes online. Time Commitment: 1-2 monthly meetings, periodic email correspondence.

PRESIDENT/VICE PRESIDENT: Our co-Presidents have been working hard to organize and grow the PTO and are ready to share the experience with new leadership. The individual committees have become more stable, but we continue to search out fresh ideas and approaches on how to grow and maintain our volunteer base. This position does not need to be too time consuming, but requires consistent communication and involvement. Please respond for more details on these positions.

Thank you,

Parker Woods Montessori PTO

Hello Parker Woods Montessori Families!
Our first ever regular popcorn fundraiser with The Popcorn Factory is about to close and we need your help!  We are in need of volunteers to collect order sheets and money on Monday, January 11th at the school and then to help with distribution of orders at the Winter Movie Night event on Friday, January 29th.
Volunteers will be collecting money and orders from families, and reminding families that if they didn’t get their orders in that they can still purchase popcorn online with a 10% discount using the promotion code: 10PW.
Remember, this promotion code is not only for PWM families but for anyone so please share with everyone you think might be interested.
Volunteer needs are as follows:
Monday, January 11th 
  • Drop off Time (8:30-9:15am)–  We need 2-3 volunteers for the front/main entrance and 1-2 for the preschool entrance.  Some volunteers will be collecting orders, others passing out reminder fliers for families who may have forgotten but can bring back completed order forms at pick-up.
  • Preschool pickup (11:30-12:15pm)–  We need only 1-2 volunteers at the preschool door to collect any late orders from preschool parents/families.
  • Pick Up Time (3:15-4pm)–  We need 2-3 volunteers at the main entrance/main sidewalk collecting orders
Friday, January 29th
  • Winter Movie Night (6pm-8:30pm)–  We need 1-2 volunteers in 1/2-1 hr shifts to distribute orders.
We thank you for your time and help with this great fundraiser and don’t forget, popcorn is available for purchase year round with our promotion code and $0.15 of each dollar spent goes to fund activities and events at PWM.  Keep an eye out for volunteer requests for our upcoming movie night in the next few weeks as well.
Please send an email message to fundraising@pwmpto.org if you are interested in helping make this event a big success.
Have a great day!

Parker Woods Montessori Scholastic Book Fair – Fall 2015 – Urgent Need for Volunteers

Parker Woods Montessori Scholastic Book Fair – Fall 2015 – Urgent Need for Volunteers

The Fall Book Fair is coming to PWM next week and we need lots of volunteers. Erma Shaffer, our Book Fair chairperson, will be unavailable to lead the Book Fair next week due to an ankle injury she experienced this week. We are wishing Erma a speedy recovery, and we will need all the help we can get in her absence!

Please review the available slots on the sign-up list and add your name to slots where you can help. The Book Fair will be held in the PWM Media Center, across from the cafeteria.

http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0c4cadaa2ea1fc1-scholastic

The Book Fair is a great way to get books into the hands of kids as well as raise money for the school. Volunteering is also a fun way to meet other parents. As a volunteer, you will have time shop for your own kids, or read a book, in between the busy moments helping students, parents, and grandparents.

Thank you for all your help!

Thank you to everyone who devoted their time and talents to make the Walk-a-thon and Fall Festival a big success. As a community, we raised more than five thousand dollars to support the students of Parker Woods Montessori! The weather was perfect for Walk-a-thon and we enjoyed a happy, healthy turnout for Fall Festival.
