Thank you, thank you to all those families who have contributed. For those of you who have not, it is not too late to contribute. Our goal is 100% participation. Send you contribution to school in a sealed envelope or visit

Parents, if you don’t already have your Fall Fiesta tickets, this is the last week to purchase tickets for $35. After Friday, tickets go up to $45. Remember, this is the ONLY way to purchase Teacher Treasures this school year like Teacher for the Day, etc . The best party in town will happen on Nov 8th at 7:00pm at the Braeburn Country Club. Sponsor your teacher or administrator for only $20. Send your money to school in a sealed envelope or purchase online at

Time to start cleaning out your closets for a clothing drive to benefit Kolter Kids! Donations will be accepted in the cafeteria Nov. 10-14th. Bring your gently used jackets, shoes and school uniforms (jeans, uniform pants, sweaters/sweatshirts, uniform shirts) sized for Kindergarten-5th graders. Please bring everything clean, folded and ready to wear! If you would like to volunteer with distribution, or have large plastic bins we can borrow please email email@example.com
Save the Date for Spirit Night on Wednesday, 11/5. For the first time ever, Spirit Night will actually be Spirit Day at Reginelli’s Pizzeria in Bellaire (5303b Bissonnet St. Bellaire, TX 77401, 713-666-7707). You can dine in all day (11am-11pm), have your meal delivered (check with restaurant for delivery area), or take it to go and Kolter receives a portion of the proceeds. Take a night off from cooking and help Kolter raise money. How cool is that!
Anyone interested in making a donation to the Kyle Sanders Benefit Fund can still do so. Please bring your donation in a sealed envelope to the front office. Checks must be made payable to the Kyle Sanders Benefit Fund, not to the Kolter PTO or Kolter Elementary. If you are interested in making an online contribution directly to Frost bank, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org . Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
LAST CALL: The Kolter Directory will go to print in the next few weeks. Don’t be left out! Enter/update your family information. Questions? Contact Drew Shefman at email@example.com
With Cougar Pride,
Kolter PTO President, 2014-2015
