Passport to Adventure Update!

Dear Birney Parents

As you may already know, we are having an All School Event
on Feb. 28th. From 11 am – 3 pm
A Passport to Adventure

Will be both a school carnival and an opportunity for kids to learn about other countries.

We will be highlighting 6 countries:
Iran, Ireland, Philippines, India, Mexico, Ethiopia

For each of the countries, the plan is to have a game, a craft and a learning/information area.

This is where you come in...
If you have ties to any of the featured countries and can help with ideas, food or prizes, any assistance or donations would be greatly appreciated.

We also need volunteers for this event. And since we want to give all parents the opportunity to tour the world with their kids, we are asking that you sign up to volunteer for a booth. We will need people to man the games, crafts, information centers and food sales. We are asking that volunteers sign up for half the time of the event (2 hours). If that is more than you will be able to do, please let us know and we may be able to match you with someone else that you can share time with. If you miss out on the sign up sheet, please contact either Kelly or myself via email and we will add you name to our lists.

We will have sign up sheets at this months' Family Friday, as well as a few days a week after school.
Presale tickets will be also be available at the sign up table.
The cost for tickets:
14 for $5 (presale)
12 for $5 or 50¢ each (on the day of the event).

More Help...
We are also looking for prize donations. Any new (or in very good condition) item that may be used for a prize for our hourly drawings. Books, Games, Toys, etc. If you have any items that you wish to donate for our prize drawing, please put it in the prize box, located next to the PTA mail box in the teachers lounge.

Any and all help (whether donating a prize and/or volunteering your time) is greatly appreciated.
Let’s make this 1st ever PTA sponsored Birney event fun and memorable for all the children.

Thanks for your support.
Michelle Livermore, PTA President
