3. Volunteer Needs
4. Office Coverage- help needed
We don’t have official hired substitutes when Mary Margaret (middle school) and Carolee (elementary school) need to be out of the office. We would love to have more parents on the list of those who might be able to help cover the front desk. It’s fun! Please email email@example.com if you are interested.
5. NC Board of Education Approves Priority Lottery to Increase Equity and Diversity!
Please read the press release about the approval of our weighted lottery on website and social media!
6. Art by Me
The Exploris PTO is excited to about our Fall Fundraiser that will showcase your child’s art. We are partnering with the company Art by Me to feature the work of Exploris students on a variety of products. These will make great gifts! This is a school wide fundraiser for the Exploris PTO including all grades K-8. The products purchased will arrive before Winter Break! The profits will enable the PTO to continue providing all of the great services they offer to our school and teachers.
7. Collecting Food for the Elderly at Glenwood
Exploris is collecting food for the seniors, as they do not get food over Thanksgiving break. The whole school is helping to bring a little joy and food to each of the 318 residents of Glenwood Towers. There is an even greater need now, following last week’s fire that displaced some residents. Please do what you can to help the folks in Glenwood Towers:
