Target Gift Cards & a Special Christmas Tree

It’s like they heard we’re collecting gift cards for our PTA teacher gifts! Tomorrow,  Dec. 3rd, Target is offering 10% off Target gift cards (in increments of $10) so if you happen to be out and are planning and able to donate gift cards, it’s a perfect opportunity to pick one up! More Info

Also, if you’re out shopping please remember the hat & mitten drive is running Monday, December 4th – December 15th. It’s a great opportunity to help take care of our communities!  Children can bring in new hats/gloves/socks/scarves (any warm item, really!) and hang it on the Christmas tree in their school lobby.

Volunteers Needed for Screen-Free Train

As a part of Wellness Week next week our students will be writing or drawing about an activity that they did instead of spending time watching TV or playing on a device. They will write or draw on a train car called the Screen-Free Train.  FLECC PTA is looking for some parent volunteers who would be able to help hang up the train cars in the hallway to remind students throughout the day the fun that can be had when they’re not behind a screen! Thank you as always for your help!

The day stars at 8a and finishes at 2p. Thanks for all you do!

Used Sports Equipment Drive

Unsure what to do with the sports equipment your kids have outgrown? The Olmsted Falls Lacrosse Association is holding another used sports equipment drive! Research shows that kids who have access to sports do better in school and have an overall higher level of well-being. -but many children face barriers to participating in these sports including the inability to purchase gear and equipment. DoSomething.org and ESPN have put out a call for help and OFLAX is one of many organizations that has answered! From today until Friday, September 29th we will collect gently used gear and equipment to donate to these underserved youth.

When: Donations are due by Friday, September 29th
What: Any gently used sports item, equipment (please no jerseys or shoes)
Where: Drop off locations include:

The last equipment drive collected over 150 items that were delivered and then distributed to kids. We hope that we can beat that record! Please share among other groups and with your friends!
