Week 15 Update

posted Dec 2, 2015, 9:45 PM by Brian Lawler

Hello Paul Revere!

Happy fifteenth week of school!

We have two important events this week:

Principals Chat: Friday December 4th at 8:30am

This month’s principal’s chat is an important one and will take place this Friday at 8:30 in the community room (115 Annex).  Ms. Afflick will discuss Revere’s One School vision for building school community, fostering communication and supporting our teachers.  All are invited to bring their questions and concerns and to join in the discussion.

Eggnog Party & Revere PTA Fundraiser Sunday, December 6th, 2015 from 1-5 pm

Eating, drinking and donating to the Paul Revere PTA are all highly recommended!  No donation is too small.  Every little bit helps.

All ages are welcome.

Hosted by Brian Lawler and Korin Yang (Revere parents – 2nd and pre K)

267 Bonview St. @ Cortland

RSVP to bplawler@gmail.com, but even if you don’t, come anyway!

The Cold

We are currently experiencing heating issues in both the Main and Annex buildings.  Annex classrooms have been provided with space heaters, as the situation is predicted to last the duration of the school year.  The issues in the Main building should be resolved this week.  Please dress your children warmly. We apologize for the discomfort and are doing everything we can do to address the problem.

Sincerely,

Jen and Jess

Hello Paul Revere!

Happy fourteenth week of school!

First, we want to say that Teacher Appreciation was a great success.  Thank you to everyone who helped deliver food, serve food and/or brought food in for our wonderful teachers.  A special HUGE shout out to Karen Dickenson for opening up her home and giving our teachers and staff a cozy place to come and enjoy a nice meal.  We hope our teachers feel special and understand how much they mean to us.

Week 13: Staff Appreciation Lunch is this week!

Hello Paul Revere!

Happy thirteenth week of school!

Tomorrow is teacher appreciation and we need your help!

We still need more sign ups for salad, bread and fruit and we are in desperate need of people to help us set up, deliver food to teachers who cannot take the time to leave their classrooms, and clean up.  Karen, Kelly and I will be there but we need more hand to make light work.  Please do what you can.  Our teachers deserve the best!

Here is the sign up genius link:

Week 11 Update

posted Oct 27, 2015, 3:34 AM by Brian Lawler   [ updated Oct 27, 2015, 3:35 AM ]

Hello Paul Revere!

Happy eleventh week of school!

First let me say that you guys are AWESOME! We asked for help and you delivered.  Thank you.

Fiesta on the Hill was a smashing success. With our bake sale and kinder note cards, we were able to break even financially and we blew the doors off of our positive presence in the community.  I think everyone now knows about Revere and we heard from quite a few families that are putting us on their Kinder list! Thank you to everyone who came out to work the booth or just to say hi.  We are all Revere!

And now onto fundraising... Christmas is around the corner and what better place to shop than our Online Auction and Book Fair!

Week 10 Call for Volunteers

posted Oct 19, 2015, 11:58 PM by Brian Lawler   [ updated Oct 20, 2015, 10:39 AM ]

Hello Paul Revere!

Happy tenth week of school!

The last week of October is a huge push for the school and we need your help.  We are only asking for 1.5 hours of your time.  If everyone in the school gave 1.5 hours of their time per year, we would have more volunteers than we would know what to do with.  Unfortunately, that is not the case and we ask that you please volunteer and ask others to do the same.  Trust me. It may seem like a sacrifice, but one you will feel great about, because you are helping your child’s school and building relationships with other parents.  The PTA works at community building and raising funds for field trips, enrichment opportunities and additional classroom supplies, such as books. We need your help!  We are seriously low on funds and currently working in the red.  In addition, we have very few volunteers. Anytime and or funds you can give is greatly appreciated. Please be generous.

Hello Paul Revere!

It is the seventh week of school and there is a lot going on!

Thank you!

First, thank you to everyone who took part in the Patxi Pizza fundraiser.  We haven’t heard yet about how much we earned, but seeing so many people at the restaurant and hearing about so many people ordering take out, it appears to have been a success.  At the very least, it was great fun hanging out with so many of you at the restaurant.  Here’s to many more nights out and time spent together as families outside of school!
