Glen Haven Scoop – Week of Aug. 22, 2016

Welcome Back! Who can believe that we only have one week until school starts?! Welcome to new parents who just joined this list! Each week, you’ll get the Glen Haven Weekly Scoop on Mondays – it’s your BEST source for information about the weeks ahead (if I do say so myself…) Please feel free to share this widely.

Are you following us on Facebook? Be sure to – it’s a great place to keep track of what’s going on at school and with the PTA! https://www.facebook.com/glenhavenpta/

Announcements

Reflex Math: We are excited to support third grade teachers Ms. Caruso and Ms. Fox as they fundraise to bring Reflex Math to the school. What is Reflex Math? It’s a computer game that helps kids improve their math facts. You can help two ways – do either or both!

* Donate $ to the Cause: Head over to their Donors Choose page (it’s like GoFundMe for teachers) and make a donation.
* Donate Clothing to the Cause: Clean out your closets and help bring Reflex Math to our school at the same time! The PTA, Ms. Caruso and Ms Fox will be jointly hosting a fundraiser, collecting clothing and small household items for the Unique Thrift Store in Wheaton. Bring your stuff to the school by September 12. The Unique Thrift Store will then donate $ back to the PTA, based on the weight of the clothing and items donated!

Mabel’s Labels: Make sure your kids’ stuff makes it home by labeling everything! Buy Mabel’s Labels AND Help the PTA. Double Win! Check it out here.
