Week of Oct. 29, 2018

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

  • BOOK FAIR: The Overlook Fall Book Fair is in full swing this week. Students will shop at the book fair during their normal library time.  There are still lots of open slots to volunteer at the book fair.  This event requires a tremendous amount of volunteer involvement to run smoothly.  Please sign up here. Don’t forget to send in your spare change now through Thursday of this week. All money raised will go towards purchasing classroom books and the class that raises the most money gets free gym time!
  • TREATS FOR TROOPS: We will be collecting Halloween Candy again this year for the troops from November 1 to the morning of November 5.  There will be treat boxes in each classroom to collect the candy.  Parents: you can help too!  Send in a bag of candy with your child or bring a bag with you to your child’s classroom Halloween party.  We will need a few parent volunteers to help weigh the candy during the morning of Monday November 5th.  Please contact Laura R. at ramsay@overlookvolunteers.com if you are available.
  • PRETZEL DAY is WEDNESDAY! Don’t forget to send in your $0.50 on TUESDAY for a Wednesday delivery.
  • HOLIDAY HOLLOW: It’s that time of year again! Time for some shopping!! Volunteers will help assist students with shopping and wrapping gifts.  Remember you will need to have your ASD Volunteer Badge. Sign up to volunteer for the Holiday Hollow HERE.
