Dear Kolter Families,

Happy Monday!

Our annual Kolter Fall FIESTA Gala & Auction was held on Saturday, and let me tell you, it was phenomenal! Thank you for joining us and making it a huge success! We had record breaking attendance, there were 30+ teachers and staff present, the silent and live auction items were spectacular, and everyone had a blast.  Dr. Shetzer even did the wobble!  The final numbers are not in yet, but I believe we have surpassed our fundraising goal.  Our Treasurer and Asst Treasurer are working diligently with the Auction Committee Chairs to finalize and closeout the auction.  We apologize for the delay, however we would like to double check all the numbers to avoid erroneous charges. Look for your final auction lists in your child’s backpack later this week. I will send out an email to let you know it is coming.

For those of you who could not join us, keep your eyes peeled for a Special Edition of the Cougar Connection for silent auction items which are still available for purchase.  There are some good ones  left like Free Dress Days in January, March, April, etc.

***If you won a silent auction package, the Auction Committee would like to ask that you use the Kolter PTO Thank You cards found in your envelope when you redeem you auction items.  We are so appreciative of our donors and would like them to continue to support us. ***

If you see Melissa Bayne, Libbie Hill, Christi Aufdenspring, Donna Mark, or Bethany Wolf this week, please thank them and congratulate them for a job well done!  They have been working on the FIESTA since the beginning of the summer!!!

Cougars Care Service Project benefiting Kolter Kids is going on this week! 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.

Kolter Cougar Connection Part Deux

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 president@kolterpto.com .

Where in the world will you be October 18th??? Kolter iFest from 1-4pm, of course.  Questions? Email Jocelyn Guite at ifest@kolterpto.com

Kolter Cougar Connection 10_12 Part 1

Some very exciting things are happening this coming weekend!

iFest (formerly known as International Night) – THIS SATURDAY, OCTOBER 18th from 1-4!!!

Flyers went home in last week’s Tuesday folder.  The event will kick off at 1 pm with the traditional Parade of Nations.  For those new to our Kolter traditions, the Parade of Nations is a little like the opening ceremonies of the Olympics.  Kids are encouraged to come dressed in international garb of their choosing – this could represent your family’s heritage, their magnet language, or just a country that interests them.  Students wishing to participate in the parade should meet in the cafeteria at 12:30 to line up.  Our fabulous Taiko drummers will kick off the day! There will be fun, festivities, and FOOD TRUCKS!!  Admission is free, (though, the food trucks will be charging).  Donations are accepted. We are also accepting donations of water.  You can drop these off this week in the front office of Kolter. Thanks to Jocelyn Guite, Nikki Ricardez, and Valerie Carville for putting together this event with love and creativity!

Also, for updates, photos, reminders, and more, be sure to “Like” Kolter Elementary PTO on Facebook!!!

Look for the Cougar Connection Part 2, which will be emailed later today.
