Week of Feb. 25, 2019

Here’s what’s happening at Overlook this week:

  • PTO MEETING: TONIGHT, February 25 at 7:00 pm in the Overlook Library.  Dr. Fecher will be joining us for a presentation and to answer any questions.  There will also be a vote on the proposed PTO Bylaws amendments attached here at the meeting, with time allocated for any questions before the formal vote on the amendments. A copy of the current bylaws can be read here.  If you have any questions prior to the meeting, feel free to contact the PTO Executive Board at board@overlookvolunteers.com.
  • HELP WANTED: The PTO Board needs help to make our fundraising events a success.  We are looking for a few people to go to local businesses seeking donations for events like BLINGO and the 5K.  Formal letters will be provided for anyone who can stop by area businesses and ask if they would like to partner with us in our fundraising efforts this year.  If you are interested or have questions, contact any board member or email board@overlookvolunteers.com.
  • BLINGO: Overlook’s BLINGO game night will be held Friday, March 22.  This family fiendly night of bingo is a fun night for the whole family!  We have needs for donations to baskets, classroom baskets (Homeroom parents will help coordinate grade-wide baskets), 5th Grade Snack Bar coordination, and volunteers to help organize this fundraising event.  If you can help in any of these areas, email blingo@overlookvolunteers.com.
  • 5K: Scheduled for April 13th this year, and will also include a 1.5 mile walk for those who don’t want to go the full 3 miles.  We are looking for donations from small businesses to sponsor this event.  If you or someone you know has a small business or a local business that would like to donate to the school as a way to advertise to our community, please contact Meghan at 5K@overlookvolunteers.com. Formal request letters and Tax ID information available.  Even a small donation makes a big difference!
  • STUDENT CONTEST: The PTO is hosting a contest for students.  We are looking for both a name for the 5K coming on April 13th and a design for field day shirts this year.  Students could win a Field Day T-Shirt and entry to 1 Overlook Event.  More details are given in the flyer sent home last week. Contact the board at board@overlookvolunteers.com with any questions.
    • AMAZON SMILE:  AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that donates 0.5% of your purchases to the ‘Overlook Parent Teacher Organization’ if you register and select ‘Overlook Parent Teacher Organization’ as your charity of choice.
    • GIANT A PLUS REWARDS: The program has started for this school year. If you have never registered your card, please visit the website for more information on how it works. Last year we earned $2,000 for our school.
    • BOXTOPS: Send your Box Tops to school in a Ziploc bag marked with your child’s name and teacher.  There is also a Box Tops Bonus App, an amazing app that you can download. You select what you bought, take a picture of your receipt and submit. Only specific items are available through the app so make sure you check it before you shop!!
