1. Calling all animal owners...
Do you have a unique animal? A frog, a snake, a bird, even fish? How would you like to bring it into school and show it off at the Science Fair? We are looking for animals in each of the 6 main species groups. At this point we have the mammals and reptiles, but we still need birds, fish, amphibians, and invertebrates. We hope to be able to SHOW what each of these species look like and how they differ from each other. All animals will be caged with a "Do NOT Touch" sign on them; it will not be hands on. We also need creative people who will assist at these tables with fun games or activities based on the specie. Please consider joining our team. Click here to download and print the volunteer sign-up form.

Go to
https://register.capturepoint.com/ASHA to order online using CommunityPass. If you prefer to pay by check, you can download and print the order form and send it in as directed. January 16th through February 15th: $14.50 each. [After February 15th, the price is $20.] Yearbooks go to the printer in February. A very limited number of extra copies will be available in June!

3. The "Heart of Gold" Basket Auction is just 2 weeks away...
have you ordered your tickets yet? Only a handful of admission tickets remain! Tickets can be ordered on CommunityPass or you can download and print an order form. A copy as also been sent home via your child's folder today...lots of prizes to be won, including jewelry, electronics, gift certificates, sports, designer purses, ad many more.

We are still looking for parent volunteers who can help on the day of the event. We need runners, 50/50 ticket sales, admissions, food/beverages, set-up and clean-up. We will have short work shifts so everyone will have plenty of time to enjoy the auction! Please consider helping at this important fundraiser...download and print the volunteer form.

Please check your child's folder...we sent home a request for food/beverage donations. We are trying to maximize our budget, so any hep you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
