Attention ShopRite Shoppers…

Shop, Swipe and Earn at ShopRite to help Amsterdam School! ShopRite’s “eLabelsForEducation” program makes it simple for ShopRite customers to earn points toward FREE ITEMS for our school. Visit www.elabelsforeducation.com to activate your ShopRite Price Plus card. Every time you purchase a participating “Labels for Education” product with your Price Plus card, Amsterdam will earn 1 point. ASHA can then use the points to purchase supplies for the Art Appreciation program (or other programs as ASHA sees fit)!

Thank You Notes from ASHA!!!
- Thank you to the Fall Book Fair Committee Chairs for organizing another successful Amsterdam Book Fair! Kudos to Ann Marie Barone, Jean Christiano and Terri Giolli for all of their efforts. The Book Fair sales totaled $9,266.31...thank you to everyone who supported this fundraiser by purchasing books! ASHA earned a net profit of $1,816.58 plus $1,000 in free books for our school!

- Thank you to the Membership/Friend Finder Committee, chaired by Susan Iannuccilli, Linda Kunkiewicz, Laura Farnsworth and Marianne Hack. By utilizing the online "Community Pass" system for the first time, the committee was able to publish the Amsterdam Friend Finder with improved accuracy and efficiency!

- Thank you to the Class Parent and Class Photographer Committees for all of their hard work in assigning this year's class representatives! Led by Michele Tuck, Sylvia Adinolfe and Susan Decker, the Class Parent Committee initiated a new approach this year by choosing one "lead parent" along with additional support parents for each of the school parties and programs. This way, more parents can be directly involved in their child's classroom! Thanks to Sylvia Adinolfe and Jim Fox for organizing the Class Photographers, and THANK YOU to all the parents who graciously volunteered their time to participate in the classroom this year!

Message from the Co-Presidents:
Are you a committee chair? Check out our new and improved ASHA website toolkit. Everything you need to run your committee is in this website. Bookmark it and refer to it often for current ASHA Standard Operating Procedures, forms, and "file cabinets" full of useful information.
