VOLUME 3, ISSUE 1 SEPTEMBER 2012
Welcome Back Moyer Mustangs!
Message from Mr. Haskamp
I wanted to take a moment to welcome all of you back to school. I cannot believe how unbelievably fast this year is going! It has been a wonderful transition to Ruth Moyer and I am so humbled by this experience. I must say that I am totally impressed with three things; the dedication of our students, parents, and teachers. All three of these groups are working in unison to make the year go like clockwork. I am impressed daily by the parental involvement our parents are showing through volunteerism. What a fine example you are putting in place for your children! I am impressed with the enthusiasm and passion for learning that is coming from our students. They truly are ready to learn every day! Finally, I am so pleased with the professionalism and dedication of the teachers. They have made a culture and climate that is welcoming and has learning at its heart! Again, welcome back and thank you for working with your children and our teachers to make this experience a memorable one!
Thanks to Keri Welch and the crew who helped make the first day of school memorable for all our Moyer kids!! Even though it rained the names in chalk on the sidewalk looked great! These volunteers included Krista Baioni, Karen Sower, Gail Rom, Michele Deal, Katie Moreno, Tonya Tierney, Misty Clark, Christina McKenzie, Lorrie & Rachel Greene, Tracy Mead Stave, KristanVennefron, Brenda Vinson, Tara Henry and Katherine Ross.
PICTURE PERSON HELP PLEASE!!!!
We are still in need of a volunteer from each of the following classrooms for picture person: Mrs. Kinsella, Mrs. Malone, Mrs. Beimesche, Mrs. Wind, Mrs. Graves, Mrs. C. Kendall, Mrs. Heilman, and Mr. Winkler. Picture person is a PTO sponsored art program in which a parent presents an art lesson in class for 20-30 minutes each month. The lessons are all set up for you. In October you will be able to help the class with a project for Santa house. No need to have an art background. Please contact Tonya Tierney if you are interested at firstname.lastname@example.org. We need at least one volunteer per class. Feel free to find another parent to share this with. We would hate for a class to miss out on having these lessons.
Scrip is a fabulous program that everyone can participate in to help the PTO raise money for the school. All it takes is a little bit of planning. Just take a moment to think about the things your family does on a weekly basis. Have you recently:
Earn Money For Moyer!!
Shop at Kroger and help Moyer earn money!
Box Tops, Campbell’s Soup Labels & Tyson
Don’t forget to turn in those box tops & soup labels you've been collecting all summer, and an apple for the teacher might not be such a bad idea either!
Moyer Elementary participates in a fundraising food program
called Market Day. Each month, restaurant-quality food products will be available for purchase. Moyer earns money with every purchase. The money earned is put toward many PTO projects that benefit our school.
There are 2ways to order:
2. Each month an order form will be sent home with your child. You may fill out the order form and drop it in the red bucket located in the front lobby.
Your order may be picked up on our monthly sale date in the Moyer Cafeteria between 5:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. You will receive a reminder call the day before pick-up. Payment via cash or check will be accepted on the pick up day.
Pick-up date: Tuesday, September 25 5:00-6:00 in the cafeteria
