Dear American Academy Parents,
Can you believe that the summer is almost over and school is just around the corner? The new PTO Board for 2019-2020 is very excited about all of the fun things we have planned for you! For those new to AA, you should expect a PTO Post from us twice a month (once toward the beginning and once in the middle) with information on upcoming events. For our larger events, we could be sending posts more frequently. We know your time is precious, so we will try not to bombard you with extra emails. But we do appreciate your patience if we do have to send out an extra post or two. We welcome you all and wish you a wonderful school year!
As you know, Registration is next Wednesday and Thursday. The PTO will have a table set up so please stop by and meet your new board members and say hi! We will have drawings for some fun prizes as well.
Shutterfly and Classroom Funds
There will be a separate table to sign up for your Shutterfly account, which is a private account dedicated to each teacher/grade level where you can share photos, sign up for volunteer activities, or post things to other parents. You are also welcome to bring your checkbook to pay your for your classroom funds that will be handled by the Grade Level Parents (formally called Room Parents). This helps fund for class parties, teachers gifts, and more.
Our first Restaurant Night is already underway! Come to Chipotle in Castle Rock on August 27th from 5-9 and bring the flyer, show it on your phone, or mention AA-Castle Pines and we will get 33% percent of the proceeds! Stay tuned for more Restaurant Nights!
NEW KING SOOPERS REWARDS PROGRAM!
Gone are the days of adding amounts on your gift cards to pay. Click Here for more information on the new way to help our school with their reward program.
As you may have heard, Box Tops is going to be changing the way they “clip” things. They will soon be phasing out having to cut out Box Tops and will be all electronic. More info to come on this.
Mabel’s Labels Scrip
Tis the beginning of the year when kids forget to bring home their water bottles, lunch boxes, and jackets. We have created an account on Mabel’s Labels so for any of you who love to use these on everything our kids lose, shop online now and grab some labels! Similar to our restaurant nights, the Castle Pines campus will receive a percentage of all sales.
American Furniture Warehouse
Next time you shop at AFW, let them know AA is your school and they will give 2%-4% back to AA Castle Pines! Our webpage has a flier with information - click here to get it!
