Dear 4th Grade Parents,

The safety of your child will always be our number one priority. We are so sorry that we had to reschedule the much anticipated Billie Swamp trip this morning at the very last minute. Unfortunately, the company that we contract with for this trip could not produce current clearances this morning for the state required background check for the personnel interacting with our school.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Please note this flyer from SOS (Support Our Schools.)

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Please note this information about the parent portal for FOCUS.

Dear Parents of Students in the Chess Club,

Please note that the Chess Club will NOT meet this Friday (11/21.) It will meet next on 12/5.

As mentioned at the St. Augustine meeting this morning, there will be a 4th grade classroom t-shirt which will be worn on the Billie Swamp field trip this week Friday, November 21st and it will also be worn on the St. Augustine field trip in May for 1 of the 2 days. For safety reasons, all students will wear the classroom shirt if they are attending either Billie Swamp or St. Augustine. All parents chaperoning either trip, will also wear the classroom shirt so the students and chaperones can be identified as a group.

I will need student and parent sizes in order to get the shirts printed on time for the field trip. There will be a cost of $8 for each shirt you order.

The $8 cost is for Youth and Adult Sizes from Small to XLarge. Shirt size of 2XL is an additional $2 and 3XL is an additional $3 added to the cost of the shirt.

PLEASE GO TO THE FOLLOWING WEBSITE AT and submit your t-shirt orders today. I will place the shirt orders on Monday at 3:00pm so if you order after the deadline, the order will not be placed.

Please take the time to do it today so I can get the orders in and ready in time for your field trip.

Print the response confirmation page with all of your information on it and submit it with the payment made to PPCES FSU PTA for the total amount of the shirts. If you are ordering several shirts for your child and family, you must enter the information for each person separately. For example, if you are ordering 3 shirts, you MUST enter 3 different submissions on the website (3 times).

Payment must be stapled to the printed forms and submitted to the front office or to your child's teacher by Tuesday, November 18th at 3:00pm. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at [email protected] directly.

Thank you for your time and support as we vol

Dear Parents,

Thank you for supporting the PTA School fundraiser.

If you have missing or damaged items, please contact Customer Care at 1-800-251-1542 or [email protected]

All parents are welcome to volunteer throughout the week, not just when their child is participating in Field Day. We ask that volunteers refrain from following their child from station to station. It is important for volunteers to remain at their assigned position to ensure that each activity is carried out in an appropriate manner for the safety of all participants. Service hours may only be given to parents who are assisting at stations.

Also, we are requesting donations of small paper cups (Dixie cup size) and water balloons. If you are able to donate these items, please drop them off at the office.

We are looking forward to a wonderful Field Day this year!

Please arrive a half hour before your child’s field day begins so you may hear the directions about how to operate the station. You will remain at that station.
