September News

yutanlogo-260x260

We had such an amazing turnout for back to school movie night!  Thanks to all the families that showed up and big thanks to Sarah Hoegh for putting it all together!

We have our monthly meeting on Tuesday September 4th at 8:00 am.  If you can not make our monthly meetings you can still help to volunteer for activities, events and projects throughout the year.  If you are interested in helping out please call or text Julie at 402-995-9602.  We love new faces!

We are moving 2 of our new events to the fall this year.  Our grandparents breakfast will be September 24th and 25th.  Look for the sign up forms coming home with your kids in the next few weeks.  Also, kickball will move to October 14th in hopes we will have better weather and less sports competing with us.

Lastly, get your jogging shoes ready!  Our jog-a-thon event will be held on Wednesday, September 12th from 8:25-11:15.  Check out your child’s classroom time in the chatter and come jog with us!

 

 

 

Grants

PTO Grant Request Form

The PTO will begin collecting grant proposals on May 23rd, 2018.

Proposals may be for projects, activities, books, equipment or anything that enhances the academic lives of children at Yutan Elementary.  While preference is given to proposals that offer school-wide access to students, teachers and/or parents are also encouraged to submit proposals that will benefit their individual classrooms or grade level.

Please place your completed form in the PTO box in the school office.  Mr. Hoegh will do the first review of proposals for content, appropriateness and to determine if alternate funding sources are available.  A sub-committee of the PTO will then review requests.  We look forward to hearing about your project.
