HELP OUR STUDENT GREEN TEAM

We need volunteers to help with our student green team meeting at lunch recess (11am -12pm) this Wednesday, June 12th! Come help students harvest the fava beans, garlic and onions that we planted last Fall and clean up the bed so it will be ready for the Kindergartens to plant summer vegetable during a unit about bees! Please email Beth bsel99@hotmail.com if you can come and help!

BRING MARKERS, GLUE STICKS/BOTTLES, AND POUCHES FOR RECYCLING

We have three special recycling programs at John Rogers! We recycle glue sticks and bottles as well as foil juice and apple sauce pouches through Terracycle. We also recycle used markers, any brand including dry erase markers through Crayola ColorCycle. Bring these items from home to the school to recycle. Look for the collection bins in the front hall and in the lunchroom. Let’s get these items out of our landfill!

SWIM INSTRUCTOR & LIFEGUARDS NEEDED!!!!!

We will be experiencing turnover for next school year’s Swim Program. We are looking for instructors (no experience needed) and those interested in becoming certified Lifeguards. You will be in the pool from 9:30-11:30 am on Fridays. These are paid positions. Cost of trainings and fingerprints will be reimbursed by PTA. If enough interest, we will be able to pay for your Lifeguard training certification this summer! We need to know soon if you are willing to be a part of our amazing swim program! Contact: Melissa Blumhagen with questions: mjblumhagen@seattleschools.org

JUMP START

Do you have a student starting kindergarten in September? Be sure you have registered them for John Rogers Jump Start! This free program runs August 19 -23 from 9AM to noon. Jump Start introduces kids to kindergarten, allows them to meet our teachers and learn routines for the school year. We highly encourage incoming kindergarteners to attend. Registration forms can be picked up in the office.

MISSING SOMETHING?
Our lost and found is overflowing! Please take your missing items. All left behind items will be donated on June 27.

BOX TOPS

Turn your box tops in! There is a box in the lobby under the PTA bulletin board or send them with your child to class. They add up quickly and our goal is to make $1000 on box tops this year! You can see a list of products at www.boxtops4education.com. It is an easy way to raise money for our school!
