THANK YOU

Thank you to all who attended our last coffee with Kimo. On Friday we had our last Coffee with Kimo for this year. Thank you to all the parents that came, listened, shared and asked questions - and a special thank you to our VP of Outreach Yukie Sakurai for all her hard work organizing these events this year and cooking all those delicious treats for each coffee.

Thank you to our Nominating Committee, Efrat Hurvitz, Anne Dang, and Michela Casazza, for all their hard work in putting together the slate of candidates for the 2018-19 PTSA Board. A lot of effort goes into finding parent volunteers who will take on roles and responsibilities for the Board. Thank you Nomm Comm.

MAY IS SCHOOL POOL BIKE MONTH

Walk, bike, or carpool to school! Please continue to mark your school trips in the school pool calendars every day this month and return them to the school office at the end of this month. Every returned calendar would earn $5 for the PTSA and a reward for the student.

If you have questions please email School Pool Co-Chair Nadia Ahmad.

SCIENCE FAIR

Science Fair is Thursday, May 31st, 6 - 8 pm. Trifold Projects for participating 3rd thru 5th graders are due May 25th.

If you have any questions or would like to volunteer for science fair, please contact the Audubon Science Fair Team: Ms. Adams (shadams@lwsd.org) & Rachel Pai (jspai@hotmail.com)

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Field Day is Friday, June 8. We are still looking for Field Day volunteers to help with popcorn!

--Snack Station – Make Popcorn Serve Water 7:45 – 11:15 (food handler’s permit required.)

Popcorn is a prize that students get after they have completed enough stations. In order for this to be successful we need volunteers here before school starts to get the popcorn popping. We will then need help to pass out the popcorn and mark sheets so we know which students have received popcorn. If you have not already signed up and are interested in helping out, please email Ms. Adams at shadams@lwsd.org or return a hard copy to your child’s teacher. If you choose to return a hard copy, please make sure your e-mail address is on there.

OUR HEALTH ROOM NEEDS CLOTHING

Our Health Room is always in need of gently used sweat pants in all youth sizes. It is not uncommon for students to need a change of clothing during the school day; and sweat pants are ideal because they have flexible sizing and work for both boys and girls. If your child has recently outgrown their sweatpants, please consider donating them to our Health Room. Your donation would be greatly appreciated and utilized often.

Donations can be dropped off at school office. Thank you.

PTSA QUESTION OF THE WEEK

PTSA would like to introduce a question of the week section in each of our regularly scheduled Enews editions. Questions that will be published are ones that our organization gets frequently or ones that offer added insight and info to our families about how our organization works. Please feel free to submit questions that you would like to see featured, to info@audubonptsa.org with the title "Question of the week submission". Here are this week's question:

Question: I thought that all events and programs at Audubon were organized by the school. Recently I discovered that this is not true. Some are school events/programs and some are PTSA events/programs. Can you please list out which ones are run by the school or which ones are run by PTSA? Thanks.

Answer:  Absolutely. Because PTSA has such a great working relationship with our school staff, it can be difficult to know when an event/program is run by PTSA or by the school. Here are some examples of PTSA events & programs: Back-to-School BBQ, Extended Classes, Math Challenge, International Night, Science Fair, Math Puzzle Hunt, Welcome Coffee, Jog-a-thon, Reflections, Artist-in-Residence program, and Volunteer training.

Here are some examples of school run events and programs: Volunteer Appreciation Coffee, Book Fair, Movie Nights, Field Day, Vision and Hearing Screening, Careers-on-Wheels career fair, and the Kindergarten registration and tours.

Parking lot reminders; volunteers needed

Please consider volunteering 15 minutes of your time once a week to be a parking lot helper. Our parking lot helpers are amazing volunteers that help to keep our students safe in our parking lot everyday.

If you have any questions please contact michelaca@hotmail.com.

Parents, please follow the rules for safely navigating our parking lot. They ensure the safety of all Audubon students. Here are some friendly reminders of the DO's & DON'Ts that we all need to follow to ensure that the parking lot is a safe zone for students:

Do obey the posted speed limit and yield to pedestrians in crosswalks.

Do pull all the way forward before allowing your student to exit the car.

Do not allow your student to exit your car on the driver's side of the car. Students need to exit on the side closest to the sidewalk.

If your student needs help to unbuckle, open/close the car door, or needs to unload a bulky project/package, please do not use the drop-off lane. Park and help them as needed.

After your student exits the car, please move out of the drop-off lane as quickly as possible so that the cars behind you can pull all the way forward before dropping off their students. The same applies in the afternoon when picking up your student.

Drivers should remain inside their car at all times in the drop-off/pick-up lane. 

Please be respectful and obey the directions of the parking lot volunteers.

When parking in the Audubon parking lot, please do not block fire lanes.

Please consider alternate ways of getting your student to school, like walking, biking, carpooling, etc.

If you have any questions please contact michelaca@hotmail.com
