Post-Spring Break PSO Update

Hello Archway Lincoln families! We hope you had a fantastic spring break. Hard to believe there are only NINE more weeks of school!

Even though the school year is starting to wind down, there’s still a LOT going on with PSO, so please read all the way through this update.

Needed: Gently Used Girls Jumpers

Ms. Barbara Deppisch, Archway’s ESS Coordinator, is looking for a few gently used girls’ jumpers to make weighted vests, which help calm some of the students. She has someone to make the vests, but needs jumpers. If you have one you can donate, please put it in a bag labeled with Ms. Deppisch’s name and leave it at the front desk.

She’d like to have 3-5 of them and will take any size jumper. If you have any questions or can donate a jumper, please email Archway Lincoln PSO.

Birthday Book Club for March

birthdayParents whose children have March birthdays, please join us Tuesday, March 29th at 2:15 p.m. in the library to celebrate birthdays!

If you have not made your child’s contribution for the Birthday Book Club yet, please send it to their teacher in a sealed envelope with your child’s name on it labeled “[Student Name] Birthday Book Club.” You can also turn in your donation on the day of the event.

If your child is celebrating this month, consider helping by bringing in goodies or arriving early to help set up for the event. Check out the sign-up genius and help if you can.

Please remember, any treats brought by volunteers must be store-bought with an ingredients label. Because we want all children to participate fully, if your child has an allergy, please make sure they come with a treat just for them.

We are looking forward to a wonderful celebration with your children!

March/April Teacher Appreciation Tuesday, April 5th

IMG_6679 2What better way to show our teachers how special they are than providing lunch and dessert on Tuesday, April 5th?

This is the perfect way to show your appreciation and support the school if you can’t be there in the classroom. We’ll have a sign-up posted soon for the items that we need.

Our teachers have said over and over that this is the best school for showing our teachers how much they’re loved, so let’s keep up the good work!

April Lunch and Office Sign-Ups

We depend upon our volunteers to make our lunch program possible and to help the front office run smoothly. Don’t worry if you’ve never done it before. Training is easy and fun and it’s a great way to say hello to your kiddo and meet some wonderful staff and parents.

Please view the sign-ups for April below and help if you can:

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact Archway Lincoln PSO.

Treat Friday on Friday, April 1st (No Foolin’!)

Coming next week on Friday, April 1st is Treat Friday. The Lunch team will be serving up a super-cool popsicle. You do not need to pre-order these treats. Just send the money with your child (or put it in a baggie to give to their teacher) and they can enjoy a cool treat now that the weather is warming up.
