PTO Silent Auction!
Make sure to stop by the PTO Silent Auction table at Curriculum Night, where you can buy admission tickets, sign up to volunteer, or inquire about donations. 50/50 raffle tickets will also be available for purchase, with the drawing taking place at the auction on November 20, 2015. Raffle tickets will be available to purchase leading up to the event, and will also be sold at the auction prior to the drawing. Half the raffle ticket sales will go towards the PTO, and half will go to one lucky winner! See you there!
Formal invitations and information will be coming home soon via backpack mail. Tickets for admission and the 50/50 raffle can be purchased via the order form on the invitation. Please contact Laura Koch with any questions, at LauraKRN@gmail.com.
The auction committee is actively seeking donations for our annual PTO auction. Maybe you own, or have connections with, a local business and can contribute a service, item, or gift basket. Sporting tickets and gear are also popular, or perhaps you can host an arts and crafts party, or cocktail party for a fixed number of guests! Some exciting donations so far we’d like to highlight include a personalized rain garden plan, ballroom dance lessons, and a family pack of tickets to the Hands On Museum! If you have an item to donate, we’d love to hear from you! Please contact Courtney Nathan at firstname.lastname@example.org or Rosy von Rutte at email@example.com.

Greetings from the Nurse’s clinic,
We have had a very busy first 3 weeks of school, but I think everyone is settling in. I wanted to remind you about some of the policies and guidelines here at school for medications and “sick children”.
All Medications: either prescription or over the counter need a Doctor order for us to administer the medications at school. The Dr.’s own form, or our medication form which is located on our website or in the school office can be used.
When to keep a child home from school:
Thank you for your help in keeping our Haisley community healthy!
Feel free to contact me with any questions.
