Dear Kolter Families,
The first Teacher Appreciation Luncheon of the year was hosted by the 5th grade class last Thursday. Thanks to our 5th Grade Grade Level Coordinator, the 5th Grade Room Parents, all the volunteers, and parents who contributed items for the fabulous spread. Way to go 5th Grade!
We had a busy weekend at Kolter! Parent and grandparent volunteers worked hard Saturday morning clearing out the beds in courtyard and doing other odd jobs around campus. Thanks to Greg Taylor for organizing the event, and to all those folks to showed up to lend a hand!! It takes a lot of work to keep our campus looking great.
Saturday was also the Kolter Global Day of Play. Many thanks to Abbie Chuo for organizing the yearly event which encourages creative play with everyday items like cardboard boxes, tape, and markers (no electronics here!). The kids created pin ball machines, skee ball games, and all kinds of wonderful games. Thanks for joining in on the fun, Cougar Families!
Last week, our Kolter community was shocked and saddened by the tragic death of a Kolter parent, Ms. Rita Salton. Our thoughts are with 5th grader, Kyle Sanders and his family. So many parents have expressed their concern and inquired about how to help Kyle in this time of grief. As described in the letter from Dr. Shetzer, the PTO has set up a benefit account for Kyle. Those interested can make a donation to the Kyle Sanders Benefit Fund in a sealed envelope and drop it by the front office. We will collect all donations and deposit them into the account. 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 the bank, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Where in the world will you be October 18th??? Kolter iFest from 1-4pm, of course. Questions? Email Jocelyn Guite at email@example.com
With Cougar Pride,
Kolter PTO President, 2014-2015
