Monday is a Day 2 for Encore.
On Tuesday we have our third PTA After School Enrichment Classes. Please be sure to pack your child an extra snack for the day as we do not provide one. Pickup is 4:30 pm prompt. Both Garden Clubs meet after school on Wednesday.
- I’ll start with an event that is farther out, but that needs some attention now. On Friday, April 24th we will have our annual PTA spring fundraiser & family fun event. It’s got a new name this year – Family Night & Camp Expo 2020. Here is a link with more information. We will be selling spots to various camps from the area so that parents can get more info, see demonstrations, and sign children up for summer camp. We will also be selling spots for local vendors to come in and set up tables and sell their wares. Also any student in the Goochland area who makes/sells things can do so for FREE, but they still need to sign up so we know how many vendors we have and can place them. We will have popular items from the past like the Balloon Buyout, Raffle for Lottery Tickets, Face Painting and we will have multiple Food Truck vendors for food options. Instead of class basket silent auction, each class will be painting/decorating a chair that will be part of a silent auction. The book fair will also be in full swing. The now part of this message is to put it on your calendar and to share the link with camps and vendors that can attend the event!
- The week of March 2nd will be Read Across America Week! Here is a flyer that details out what clothes to pick out for each day! We’ll have lots of special guest readers visiting throughout the week! Make a family trip to the library to get some Dr. Seuss books and your childhood favorites to share with your kids next week!
- Reading Olympics is coming up on March 26th. Before we get there we’d like to make a fun edible connection to one of the books entitled Pie, by Sarah Weeks. Like the characters in the book, help our Reading Olympics participants go PIE CRAZY by enjoying a slice! Although we’d like to do it on 3.14.20 (pie day) we can’t because it is a Saturday. Instead, we’ll aim for Wednesday, March 11th. If your kiddo is doing Reading Olympics and you can provide a pie, please sign up at this link.
- The GHS Dance Company students will be hosting a Dance Camp on Monday, March 16th from 9 am to 2 pm. Please see the flyer. Click on this link to pay online.
Have a great week!
