Horseshoe Review- Copeland Elementary PTO Newsletter

March 18, 2024

PTO Hospitality Day

March is National Reading month, so on Wednesday, March 20th, we are going to do a twist on the “If you give a mouse a cookie” book series. Some of the titles are: “give a moose a muffin,” “give a cat a cupcake,” “give a dog a donut,” “give a mouse a brownie,” and so many more.  

We would like to Give the Staff a Snack! We will be collecting grab and go snacks such as: small packages of cookies, muffins, cupcakes, brownies, donuts; and individual bags of chips, crackers, pretzels, popcorn, trail mix.

The teachers and staff truly appreciate these monthly treats, and we are not able to do them each month without your help! Please sign up for what you can below.

It's Simple and Easy...

Does your student have a summer birthday or is the week of their birthday already filled up? You can choose any week that is still available.

Due to processing, payments must be made online or by cash to guarantee your spot on the birthday marquee. If you are paying by cash; complete this online form, choose the "pay later" option then submit the payment within two business days to the school, either to the front office or send it in with your student.
