A Message from your PTA President

A Message from your Running Springs PTA President

It’s February and that means it’s a month filled with FUN!!!!

Good luck to all our students who have diligently studied for the Know Your States Challenge! The PTA looks forward to supplying a pizza party for all the perfect scores on the States Challenge and medals to all those students with perfect scores on the Capitals Challenge! Check out the newsletter for helpful hints and links! A GIANT thank you to Sarah Roshan for chairing this event!

Be sure to purchase your Family Fun Night Bingo cards! What a fun night for families to come out and enjoy dinner and fun in one place! Tons of thanks to Sonie May for being our chairman on this highly anticipated annual event!

Our annual PTA directory was sent home in January. Thank you to Jennifer Berkson for taking on this GIANT pro-ject! I know our families appreciate all your hard work!

Take a moment to review the Honorary Service Award form in this month’s newsletter. We have so many parents who give so much not only to their children, but all the students at Running Springs. This award helps highlight and thank those outstanding individuals. Nominations can also be done via the PTA website. Thank you to Jennifer Ahrendt for coordinating this!

Due to our President Holidays, there will be no school on Friday, February 12th and Monday, February 15th so class-room Valentine’s Parties will be held on Thursday, February 11th. Thank you in advance to all our Room Parents for all of their organizing!!!

Don’t forget our February PTA meeting will be on Thursday, February 11th at 8:15am in the MPR.

Happy February!
Laura Pistoresi
PTA President

The 11th Annual Community Foundation Day Games will be held this year on Saturday, April 16th. We hope to compete again in this year’s track and field meet. All students in grades 1st-6th with birthdays between January 1, 2003 and Decem-ber 31, 2009 are eligible to compete. In order to make this event successful, we are looking for volunteers to help with weekly practices and help on the day of the event.
Mrs. McDaniel will be holding practice for 3rd-6th graders after school. Practice will be based on the student’s grade. 6th graders will practice on Fridays, 5th graders will practice on Thursdays, 4th graders will practice on Tuesdays, and 3rd graders will practice on Mondays. Practice will start the week of February 1st after school from 2:25 pm-3:00 pm. If you are able to help on any of the practice days and/or the day of the event, please contact Mrs. McDaniel at emcdan-iel@orangeusd.org or email Mr. Vidal at jvidal@orangeusd.org. We need 10 or more volunteers by February 15th in order for our school to participate in this event again this year.
Patty Chau, a Running Springs parent will be holding practice for the 1st and 2nd graders on Saturdays at Canyon High School from 4-5pm starting January 30th. If you have any questions you can contact Patty at 714-501-3370 or email her at pattychau@yahoo.com.
School registration deadline for the Foundation Games is January 30th, so please let us know by then if your child is interested in participating. A flyer went home on Thursday 21st regarding the details.
Also we were wondering if there are any parents who would like to represent our school and run in the Parent 4 x 100 relay? Please contact Mrs. McDaniel if you are interested.
Thank you so much for your continued support of our programs here at Running Springs Elementary! We could not do all this without our wonderful parents who so graciously donate their time!
