Wow!  The response to the PTO committee and Room Parent sign up has been great.  We still need a few more positions filled though—please, PLEASE, just click the link below and make it happen!  The PTO needs you!  If PTO programs do not have chair positions filled, then they will not happen…and nobody wants that.  Please just take a moment and sign up for a slot or two (or more!).    We will make sure fun is had by all!!  Remember, this is also where you will let us know that you are interested in being a room parent for next year.  The signup link is scheduled to close at the end of the week, so we hope to see your name there soon!

NATIVE PLANT SALE — HELP THE MONARCH BUTTERFLIES

Central PTO is selling native milkweed plants this Spring. Students can buy 1 or 2 butterfly weed (asclepias tuberosa) plants, at a cost of $1 each. Butterfly weed is easy to grow in almost any garden soil, provided it has lots of sun.

Image result for asclepias tuberosaAttached is an order form to use (or just write on a slip of paper your student’s name, an e-mail address, and whether you want 1 or 2 plants). Enclose your payment and drop your order in the plant pot by the PTO inbox in the Central office. Monarch butterflies lay eggs only on milkweed plants, and when the eggs hatch the caterpillars eat only milkweed leaves. Monarchs and all kinds of butterflies love the flower nectar! So growing milkweed in your garden directly helps monarch butterflies (Illinois’ state insect).

SUBMIT YOUR ORDER BY TUESDAY MAY 31st. WE WILL DISTRIBUTE THE PLANTS AFTER SCHOOL ON WEDNESDAY JUNE 1st AND THURSDAY JUNE 2nd, in the reading circle by the playground. Contact Jacqueline Miller, jacqm240@gmail.com, with questions.
