1. Book Fair kicks off with the "All For Books" Classroom Coin Drive
Send in loose change with your child. The week of March 4th – 8th our school is participating in a classroom level coin drive called the Coin for a Day Challenge. Each day represents a different type of coin. The classroom generating the highest overall total will receive a free book for every student in that class. Send in your coins according to the following days:
Penny Monday, Nickel Tuesday, Dime Wednesday, Quarter Thursday, Any domination Friday. Thank you!!

2. 4th Grade T-Shirts
T-Shirt order forms are due by March 15th. The T-Shirt will have the names of all the children in the Amsterdam Class of 2013. So please neatly write your child's first and last name the way you'd like it to appear on the shirt. We will have t-shirt sample sizes if you're not sure about which size to order please let one of the Chairpersons know.

3. Variety Show a Hit!
Last Friday, we held the annual Variety Show at Amsterdam School to showcase some of the talented students we have in our school. We had 35 fantastic and unique performances including dancing, gymnastics, singing, piano, harmonica, skits, and a surprise act from some of our teachers. We hope everyone enjoyed the show. Thank you to all of the performers, chaperones, parent volunteers, and show organizers that helped to make the night a success. Special thanks to Susan Iannuccilli and Maryann Comiskey for co-chairing the event.

4. 4th Grade Day Donations
Thank-you to all those who baked & donated items for the Variety Show Bake Sale. We were able to raise $381 to go towards making 4th Grade Day an even bettter day.
