Dear American Academy Parents,
What a way to end the week with a taste of winter weather! While most of us were not ready for that, what we are sure you are ready for is Fall Break! When you return we will be gearing up for our Fall Festival and before you know it, November events. There is also a quick update on Fun Run, the Directory (if you missed it), and more. Have a wonderful Fall Break!
AAPTO-CP October/November EVENTS
Final Box Top Collection-October 25th
October 25th will be our last and final Box Top Collection. Send in your Box Tops anytime between now and October 25th, so we have time to cut, count, and mail them in before the deadline. The front office or your child’s homeroom teacher will accept them. Don’t forget to download the new Box Top app on your phone!
Fall Festival-October 26th
The kids will look forward to this family fun filled event after coming back from Fall Break. There will be hay rides, bounce houses, haunted hallway, and Trunk or Treat in the parking lot. Come dressed in costume and be ready to have a “ghoulish” good time! Located at our school from 3:00pm-5:00pm. We are still in need volunteers to decorate their trunk and have a fun theme, game, or just a fun way to hand out candy! Please click here to sign up. (you get VOLUNTEER HOURS!)
Rebels Reaching Out Food Drive–November 4th-November 8th
The AAPTO-CP will be collecting dried and canned goods for the food banks at Molholm and Pine Lane Elementary. As you know, Molholm Elementary is a JeffCo. School where over 90% of the students are on the Free or Reduced lunch program. Pine Lane is a Douglas County school that also has a high FRL program. The staff and families of both these schools can really use your help and are always grateful for the generosity of our AA-CP families.
Any dried or canned goods are appreciated, however, below is a list of the most requested items:
Canned soup Snacks sizes for school
Dried soups Crackers
Rice bowls Dried fruit
Noodle bowls Fruit cups
Boxed meals Pretzels
Tuna in a can or pouch Granola bars
Chicken in a can or pouch Juice boxes
Beans Yogurt non-refrigerated pouches
Dry cereal (low sugar) Apple sauce
Simply bring the food items (check the expiration dates if donating from your pantry) to morning carpool during the week of November 4-8 and a volunteer will pick them up from you. There will also be a box in the front lobby.
The staff and families at Molholm and Pine Lane always appreciate the generosity of the AA community!!! Any questions, contact Catherine Doherty
