2017-2018 Newsletters


October 2017


Dine to Donate: Thank you to everyone who ordered Marco's for our first Dine to Donate! We will have these fundraisers the third Wednesday of each month throughout the school year. Mrs. Helmes, Mrs. Jelinek and Mrs. Clawson will have their classes decorate boxes for our Marco's Dine to Donate on October 18th.

Marco's Fundraiser Cards: New this year! We are selling Marco's fundraiser cards for $10 each. These cards are good for carryout orders, don't expire, and have 10 peel off coupons for BOGO deals! They can pay for themselves after one use. Purchase a card and use it on a Dine to Donate day to help our school out two times! Please see the monthly order form or contact Jessica Jackson at to purchase a card.

Box Tops and Labels: Our school collects Box Tops, Tyson A+ Labels, and Campbell's Labels for Education. Please send in any Box Tops and labels in an envelope or baggie with your child's name and teacher's name and have your student put it in his/her grade level container in the lobby. Each month we will draw 2 random winners from each grade level container and those students will receive a Ram Buck to spend at the Ram Store! Please encourage family and friends to save Box Tops and labels as well! These small things add up quickly for our school! Thank you for your support!



Our October meeting will take place on Tuesday the 17th, 7:00-8:00 in the Media Center. Our special guest will be Becky Tompkins, Ross Local Schools Director of Curriculum and Instruction. She will be discussing the 3rd grade Reading Guarantee, and will be able to answer any of your questions about that. Plan to attend!

Spirit Wear Sale

We’ll be having a spirit wear flyer sale in October. Order forms will be sent home with students very soon!

The Elda PTO is organizing dinners on conference night to show appreciation to all of the amazing staff at Elda. We need your help to make this happen! Please sign up to provide an item on October 19th or 24th. All items must be delivered to school by 3:30 PM. Check out our website for more information or contact Allison Sommers with any questions.

Our extracurricular classes are currently running through October 25th and 26th. These include Young Rembrandts and Bricks 4 Kidz. The chess class was canceled due to low enrollment.

We’d like to thank LEI Home Enhancements, our sponsor in The Venice Cornerstone for the remainder of the year.
