Announcements: by TRE President Kate Schmus
-Teacherlist.com a new way for teachers to go online and make classroom wish lists. Parents can log on and see what their teacher wish lists are for the classroom and pick up for gifts or if just out and about or have something they are looking for lying around the house. For example Mrs. Kearney lost most of her matchbox cars in the flood. She can post it on her wish list at www.teacherlist.com and the parents can donate them to her class.  This is great for the holidays. Plus our school can earn supplies for having the teachers sign up and it is all free.
-Santa Shop- We have been shopping and working out a deal with a few stores. All items will be $1.50. We will send home a list to place the names of the people your child will be buying gifts for.
-Oct 27 Strides for breast cancer walk if anyone is interested in forming a  team.
-Per Lisa Jones we have 193 PTA members 33 Staff Pta members
