Week of October 22, 2018

Here’s what happening at Overlook this week:

  • MIXED BAG CATALOG SALE: A variety of holiday gift options are available through Mixed Bag.  Information on this sale should be coming home with the students on Monday (10/22).  The sale will run through November 5th.
  • BOOK FAIR: The Overlook Fall Book Fair will take place Oct. 25- Nov. 2. Beginning on 10/25, students will shop at the book fair during their normal library time. Kindergarten and 1st grade students will make wish lists on 10/25 (before their shopping day). Reading night will take place on Thursday, 10/25.  The proceeds from this fair benefit the PTO, funding things such as new books for the library & other great programs. Volunteers are always needed for set up, clean up, wish-list creation and assistance with shopping.  Please sign up here to volunteer. The theme this year is Enchanted Forest & each classroom will receive a bottle “gnome” to collect their coins in.
  • PRETZEL DAY is WEDNESDAY! Don’t forget to send in your $0.50 on TUESDAY for a Wednesday delivery.
  • ZOOM FOR THE CLASSROOM: Our first Zoom for the Classroom was a success!  Together we raised over $13,000 for our school!  We set the bar high for our fundraising goal and we came very close.  This fundraiser has come to an end and we want to thank you for your support and contributions.  We are OVERLOOK PROUD!
    • AMAZON SMILE:  AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that donates 0.5% of your purchases to the Overlook Parent Teacher Organization. Click here to register and select Overlook Parent Teacher Organization as your charity.

Only specific items are available through the app so make sure you check it before you shop!!
