PTC News

Hi Patriots!  I want to thank all of you who have helped make our Spring events so successful.  Our Beauty Revue was once again a big success, and once again, every single young lady could have won, and I wouldn’t have been a bit surprised.  They were all lovely and graceful princesses.  If your child participated in the pageant, you are definitely going to want to order the professional pageant photos that were taken prior to and following the crowning.  Each contestant had photos taken in casual and formal attire, as well as other action shots during the event.  The photo package is $35, and forms were sent home with each contestant yesterday.  If you did not receive a form, please send the money to the school office by May 15th in an envelope along with the contestant’s name and your phone number and email address.

I would like to thank all of you for continuing to submit Coke Reward points and BoxTops.  We get quarterly checks from the organizations which help us fund school projects throughout the year.  You can find Coke Reward labels inside the Coke product boxes, and, of course, all caps count.  We were finally able to get caught up on entering Coke Reward codes into the online system thanks to the extraordinary efforts of parents Angie Newman and Lesley Thompson.  Thank you ladies so much!

Marshall Academy will once again be sponsoring the Byhalia “Sounds of Summer” Music & Arts Festival.  It is a great chance for us to introduce ourselves to new families and re-connect with alumni in the community.  As part of the sponsorship we receive advertising and booth space.  We have been asked to have a booth in the Kid’s Fun Zone.  We will have a couple of games like those we have at the Fall Festival.  This is a great opportunity for us to showcase our school and our great students, teachers, and families.  The festival lasts from 4-10pm on June 2nd.  I did not realize the event was coming up so soon, so I had already planned a short family trip for that weekend.  I am asking for volunteers to help plan the activities and man the booth.  We will count the volunteer service hours for next year’s requirement.  Please reach out to me if you are willing to help.  It will be fun!

We have received a request from the daycare and pre-K teachers to construct a small divider fence on the pre-K playground, so we would like to explore the possibilities.  If you have experience, materials, equipment, etc. for this type of project, please reach out to me or Mrs. Mindy Gresham.  We would like to talk to you about your suggestions.  As a reminder…donations of outdoor Little Tykes types of toys are always appreciated.

Remember to sign up for the Summer 2019 England, Ireland, and Scotland trip.  You can start paying payments now on the plan rather than pay all at once.  We are still discussing fundraising ideas to help reduce the cost of the trip for participants.

Finally, as we close out the year and look forward to next school year, I would love to bring additional PTC officers and committee chairmen onboard for next year.  Please reach out to me if you would like to serve in such a role.

Thank you all for a great year!
