This is Tom Childers contacting you from Antioch Elementary. I would like to begin my weekly message by once again extending a special THANK YOU to the Antioch PTO. Fifty-three student Ipads were delivered this week and four replacement interactive boards were installed. Once the Ipads have been prepared and distributed to our K-2 classrooms, every K-2 classroom will have eight Ipads for student use. Our Kindergarten, First and Second grade teachers have recently participated in professional development to learn effective strategies for these devices.
This week our school is asked to…Show Your Giving Gators Spirit!
Our food drive this year will take place November 13th – 18th. Our annual food drive supports our very own Ms. Rogers’ “Food for Families”. Food for Families feeds 400 families in 8 Union County schools.
Each grade level is being asked to bring a specific food item. On Saturday November 18th we will have Community Service Day beginning at 9:00 am to pack the food into bags to be delivered to Union County students. Please visit the Antioch PTO website for adult and student volunteer opportunities. This week-long event needs many volunteers in order to be successful, and is a great opportunity for students to help with a hands-on service project!
Kindergarten – bring in 15 oz. canned fruit
1st Grade – bring in 15 oz. ravioli
2nd Grade – bring in 15 oz. canned vegetable
3rd Grade – bring in 16 oz. peanut butter
4th Grade – bring in 12 pack of boxed grits or oatmeal
5th Grade – bring in 12 pack of boxed grits or oatmeal
** If your child has a food allergy feel free to substitute with an item from a different grade level.
Place food in the bins at the school entrances November 13th – 17th. There will be parent volunteers in the car rider and bus rider areas to help students as needed. Food may also be dropped off on Saturday November 18th from 8:30-9:00 am in the bus lot.
On Tuesday, November 14th our PTO is sponsoring a Dinning for Dollars Evening at Chic-fil-A Wesley Chapel. Our service time is from 4pm - 8pm and the school with the most participation wins a $500 gift card for the school!
The Weddington High School Performing Arts Department would like to announce their Fall Drama Performance of Cheaper by the Dozen. Performances will take place on November 16th @ 7:00 pm and November 18th @ 2:00pm and 7:00pm. Student tickets are $5.00 and Adults tickets are $8.00. Please support the arts in the Weddington Cluster.
Thank you for supporting our school - working together as one team on one mission, we are meeting needs, challenging minds and celebrating accomplishments.
Until next time… Have a great evening
