11/16/2015 – This Week at Overlook!

CONGRATS TO THE STUDENT COUNCIL WINNERS!  Congrats to President Matthew Thomas, Vice-President Christian Slavin, Treasurer Bella Capone, Secretary Colleen Bashew, as well as all the classroom representatives! All the candidates should be proud of themselves – it takes a lot of courage to run for a position, decide on a “platform,” and speak in front of your classmates… way to go!

HAPPENING NOW: Holiday Hollow Volunteer Sign-Ups are here!  Holiday Hollow is schedule for the week JUST AFTER THANKSGIVING break, from 11/30-12/3 (Monday to Thursday) on the Gym Stage.  The kids love to shop for their families, but we can’t run this event without a team of parent volunteers to set up/clean up, assist shoppers and wrap gifts.Even signing up for an hour or two helps!  Friendly reminder that volunteers must have their clearances. Questions? Email patricia@overlookvolunteers.com

This Week 11/16-11/20: Thanksgiving Food Drive coordinated by the VIBE and IMAGINE groups.  Please send in canned goods and packaged foods to be distributed within our community!

This Wednesday 11/18: 6-7pm Gold Card Night!  Students who still have their “gold card” are invited to an interactive Mad Science performance in the Gym, sponsored by the PTO.

This Friday 11/20: 9am  PTO Meeting, in the cafeteria.  Everyone welcome!

This Saturday 11/21: AEF Monte Carlo Night

11/25: Deadline for parents interested in being appointed to Overlook PTO treasurer for the remaining 2015-2016 school year.  If interested, please email  board@overlookvolunteers.com.

12/4 Holiday Delivery deadline: SWEATSHIRTS AND SWEATPANTS! Have you seen the new Overlook Spirit Wear? For delivery before winter break, orders MUST BE PLACED by 12/4 (that’s only 3 weeks away!).  At check-out, designate orders as “pick up” or “send home with student”.  Questions? Email lisabrownholt@gmail.com.

Race for Education Final Update:  A great big THANK YOU for your support of our 5th Race for Education!   $7,700 raised and counting!  Special thanks to Jen Slotter, Sam Pierce and their team of parent volunteers who helped make  the race day a special event for the kids!   Thanks to Fresh Market and Edible Arrangements for their fruit donations and Philly Pretzel Factory for the discounted pretzels.

Race for Education Thank Yous: Families who had donations made in their name (by someone other than a parent or an “anonymous” donor) were contacted by email with a list of donors.  Please extend our Overlook gratitude by reaching out or sending our thank you note!  If you have any questions, please email jen@overlookvolunteers.com.  Congrats to the Race for Education drawing winners (for donations credited from 10/21/15-11/2/15)!  The Coleman Family ($25 AMC gift card) and The Delany Family ($25 Amazon gift card)!  Thank you for your fundraising efforts!

Have a great week!!
