Holiday Fair call

Hello TNS families,

In one month we have our annual Holiday Fair at The Neighborhood School which will be held on Sunday December 10th from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

We need a lot of volunteers to help out with this widely known holiday school event that raises money for our children’s extra classes, wonderful additional teachers, and many needed fundings that keep the wheels rolling.

This Wednesday, November 15th will be the first Committee meeting - right after drop off.

Please meet me in the PTA room...
If you can not make it - please email me or call me in the hallways and let me know you are available to help.

*There will be discussion of the tables, food, decorations and any other ideas and suggestions that can help the Holiday Fair be amazing!

**There is a Box Maze Committee that started in October - they need anyone who is near school at any given time to go by the appliance stores and bring refrigerator, dishwasher,  washer / dryer boxes any really BIG boxes to the school daily... for the biggest fun draw our children enjoy -- set up on December 9th. if you can help (drop the boxes off in the PTA room at ANYTIME).

***Remember the only way things can get done is by group effort and we as parents have to stick together and have teamwork in high gear to accomplish The Impossible!

Best wishes as always,
~Lorraine Hutra

Wanna Knit a Hat?

Hello TNS,

We’re going to try doing different knitting workshops at Family Time so parents and students can learn how to make specific things and use the time at other Family Time slots to work on them. Hat knitting is very easy and a very practical skill. Let me know if you have any questions.
