Passport to Adventure 2010

Dear Birney Parents

As you may already know, we are having an All School Event on Saturday, June 19th. 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:
Afghanistan, China, Ecuador, Ghana, Spain, Switzerland

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 are interested in helping, please contact Michelle at or at and she 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.

More Help...
We are also looking for prize donations for both our raffle and for our silent auction.
Raffle: Any new (or in very good condition) item that may be used for a prize for our hourly drawings. Books, Games, Toys, etc.
Silent Auction: This items would be items of greater value (Charger signed footballs, memorabilia, jewelry, play tickets, dinner packages, etc.) The silent auction will be held during the Passport to Adventure.

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 2nd annual PTA sponsored event fun and memorable for all the children.

Thanks for your support.
