Let the Fun (Run) Begin! 

Greetings Explorer Families!

Fall is in the air and we are welcoming so many exciting events with this cooler weather.

Book Fair is running now until October 8th, please set up your e-wallet if you would like your children to shop for items. Feel free to reach out to PTO or Mrs. O’Brien with any questions you may have about the Book Fair. 

We will be kicking off our main fundraiser, the Fun Run, on Tuesday, October 12th! For our families for whom this will be the first year participating, this is a fundraiser that encourages students to reach out to friends and family to sponsor them and pledge money for the school culminating in a super exciting run! We will be raising money for more technology (100 new iPads) and expanding bike racks and installing a covered area for them. We may also consider additional covered areas through the school.
The run will look a little bit different this year since we are still taking social distancing precautions. The final event will be run outdoors through PE classes (with each child’s existing class) on Oct 21, 22, and 25th. Stay tuned to find out which day your student will run! This is a great opportunity to show your child how their hard work contributes to the greater good and have fun while doing it. Lots of fun prizes are in store for all!!


As November rolls around, we have some community outreach projects planned including donation drives and angel tree. We will also be running a holiday shop for all the kids to pick out a special gift for their family members and friends! More information on these events as we get closer to those dates.

Our PTO board and volunteers (yay!) continue to work hard behind the scenes to make this year the most it can be, if you have any ideas or wish to become a more involved PTO member, please reach out to us, we would love to hear from you!

Sincerely,

Maria and Shanthi
