PTSA Meeting this Week: Hear from Principal Byrd | Halloween Party for Kids

PTSA Meeting Wednesday at 6pm

This week’s two-part PTSA meeting will be 6 p.m. Wednesday on Zoom. The link will be sent on the day of.

In the meeting’s first half, Principal Byrd will share updates she has to the Nov. 9 partial return to school and answer questions as time permits.

In the second half, kids are encouraged to attend in costume. We will split up into smaller “rooms” to show off costumes and create a Jack-O-Lantern craft.

The PTSA is providing supplies for the craft. Today through Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., stop by Payne to pick up scratch-off pumpkin craft kits and goody bags with candy and a few small Halloween toys. One bag is available per student and will be in a bin labeled “PTSA Meeting Materials” near the door between the ramp entrance and the main entrance. If you can’t pick up the kit, a template for a pumpkin is attached to this email.

To sum up: Principal Byrd, gourd crafting, and costumes. How could you miss out?

Parents can pick up these scratch-off pumpkin craft kits.
