Week of Sept. 4, 2018

Happy First Day of School!!  Here’s what’s going on with the PTO:
  • RITA’S FUNDRAISER: September 4 – September 11: Celebrate a great first week of school at Rita’s and they will give Overlook PTO 20% of the proceeds.  Just go to the Rita’s either in Abington or Glenside and present the flyer (flyer must be present at the time of purchase).  Feel free to cut the flyer in half and go twice or print out multiple copies and go every night.
  • FALL FESTIVAL:  September 29 from 11:00am to 2:00pm. Come out for a fall afternoon of  games, face painting, music, food, balloon animals, inflatable obstacle courses, costume sales and more. Wristband $5 pre order $7 at the door (Wristband are needed for any children participating in the event).  Watch for a flyer coming home soon.
  • FAMILY FOLDERS: We are looking for volunteers to help with family packets this year.  Typically, the team meets at 9 am on Tuesday mornings and it takes about an hr to assemble the packets & distribute.  If you have a little one that you would need to bring with you, that’s fine too.  If interested, contact Karin Quinn at treasurer@overlookvolunteers.com.
  • 6TH GRADE CAR WASH: 9 AM to Noon.  Is your car dirty?  Come to the Overlook 6th grade class car wash at Overlook’s Bus Loop.  Cost: $8.00 (additional donations appreciated).  All proceeds benefit the 2019 6th Grade Class.
  • MUMS SALE: The 6th grade class will also be selling Mums.  1 for $8 with discounts as you purchase more.  Watch for a flyer coming home soon.  Also order online at the school store.
  • FACEBOOK PAGES FOR EACH GRADE:  Please note that separate Facebook pages (aside from the general Overlook PTO page) are available for each grade level.  This is a great place to ask questions/post information that is applicable to specific grades.  Group pages are called “Overlook Elementary Class of 20xx” (where xx is the year they will graduate from Overlook (as 6th graders), so be sure to join your class pages!
    • AMAZON SMILE:  AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that donates 0.5% of your purchases to the Overlook PTO. Click here to register and select Overlook Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)  as your charity.
    • BOX TOPS: You can continue to send in your box tops for education.  Please send them to school in a zip lock bag labeled with Student Name and Teacher.
  • SHOE CARNIVAL:  Shoe Carnival in Willow Grove is offering Overlook PTO 10% of proceeds on all sales all year long when Overlook is mentioned at the register.
