PTO NEWS AND NOTES

68TH ART SHOW AND SALE IS 3 DAYS AWAY!!!!!!

Not sure if you've heard, but the 68th ANNUAL ART SHOW AND SALE is happening THIS WEEKEND - Friday and Saturday! :)  We still have many ways to volunteer. Please remember that we only need a couple hours of your time - all the money we raise this weekend goes to technology, assemblies, and other educational activities that directly impact our children.  So what can you do to help?

1. DONATE A DESSERT FOR THE FRIDAY NIGHT SHOW.  

Each year hundreds of people from our community and far beyond come to CFE to enjoy two days of incredible art.....but they also enjoy some DELICIOUS FOOD!  This year we have some fantastic food from our local restaurants, but the dessert table would not be possible without donations from CFE parents.  Help us fill all of our spots!!

Please Donate Individually Portioned Desserts:

2. VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME AT THE SHOW

We have said it before and we will say it again.  THIS SHOW IS NOT POSSIBLE WITHOUT THE HELP OF ALL OF OUR PARENTS.  We really need some additional help on Saturday (volunteer opportunities are listed at the bottom of the sign up). It is a great chance for Dads to help out as well!  We do thank all of you who have already signed up.

SPRING ESSENTIALS FOR MITCHELL

Our spring collection drive supports basic but unmet needs at our sister school, Mitchell Elementary in southwest Philadelphia.  As many of us have learned the hard way, flu season is here, and Mitchell has asked for our help in providing the following much-needed items for its student body and teachers:

  • Tissue Boxes
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Paper Towel Rolls
  • Deodorant 
  • Bookbags (always in short supply)

Mitchell serves a K-8 student body made up entirely of children from households below the poverty line, with many children struggling with permanent or transitional homelessness. The school has been incredibly appreciative of all of the support from CFES this year.

A box for donations will be in the CFE lobby through Friday, March 31st.  Thank you Charger families!
