Sumpter Parent Club Help Needed!!!!!

Hello Parents,

We need you HELP!  Let me explain...On February 15th, the kids will have an assembly that Mrs. Siegrist, school counselor has organized that introduces them to a term called N.E.D. (NEVER give up, ENCOURAGE others, DO your best).  A performer who entertains with yo-yo tricks and other fun-filled activites. Given that we are heading into testing season, our assembly will include strategies for overcoming test anxiety. The overall objective is for our students to become champions in school and in life.

Mrs. Siegrist will be holding a meeting on February 11th, Monday at 9:30 am for those parents that would be interested in helping with yo-yo sales. We will need parents selling yo-yo's at a table in the library area right after school for the week following the assembly. We also could use help filling orders throughout the day when kids bring in their money and order forms that are being sent home at the end of this week.



Mrs. Woodworth, the librarian has a need for 600 paper bags or plastic bags for an event called BAZILLION BOOKS. Drop them off at the library starting now. More info to follow.


Thanks so much for your help and support!!!!


Annette Brown

President of Parent Club
