Week of April 22, 2019

  • OVERLOOK NIGHT OUT: This Friday, April 26th 6:30-8:30PM.  Ever wonder what it would be like to have an ice skating rink all to yourself & your friends? Find out Friday when Overlook takes over the entire Flyers Skate Zone in NE Philly. The night includes 2 hours of skating (including skate rentals) and pizza or hot dog and a drink. Don’t miss this fun night!  The deadline was extended! We will accept online registrations through Thursday, April 25 and paper registrations through Friday (including at the door walk ins).
  • FIELD DAY T-SHIRTS: Field Day T-Shirts are an optional purchase that the PTO is making available to students for $10. Ms. Early has divided the students to either the Red Team or to the White Team. Please check with your student to find out what team they have been assigned so you know what color t-shirt they will need to wear that day. Anyone who places an order will have their shirts delivered to their classroom before Field Day on Thursday May 16th.  Purchases can be made at the school store or with the flyer that came home last week.  All orders are due Tuesday April 23rd.  Questions: Please email spiritwear@overlookvolunteers.com.
  • PTO BOARD NOMINATIONS:  Nominations are due tonight Tuesday April 23rd.  We need committed parents to join the team for next year.  Please consider nominating yourself or someone else. All positions except treasure can be shared.  Email Jen Slotter at jenslotter@verizon.net.
  • TEACHER AND STAFF APPRECIATION: Please join us in celebrating the special teachers and staff we have at Overlook.  During the week of May 6, Overlook Teachers and Staff will be honored in different ways to show our appreciation for the great job they do with our kids.  Please return the envelope sent home last week with your donation.
