November PTA Updates

1) Gleaners  Food Drive organized by Yogurtopia and PTA

Yogurtopia will be hosting our “Cans for a Cause” canned food drive this November and decided it would be most effective if we were able to draw in local schools to participate. All food items collected will be donated to our local Gleaners Food Bank so that we are able to help feed those in need for the holidays.  In order to give the children the motivation to bring in as many non-perishable items as possible, we will be turning the canned food drive into a competition. Not only will the students be competing against their fellow classes but also against students from other local schools.

How it works:

Students will be allowed to collect as many non-perishable food items as possible from November 9th, 2015- November 20th, 2015. Once that time is up Miley, the friendly Yogurtopia mascot, will visit the classroom with the most collected items. Each student in the winning class will receive a $5 gift card to Yogurtopia!
