Teacher Appreciation Week!

The Wascher PTA would like to say “Thank You” to all the fantastic teachers at Wascher that help our students achieve their fullest potential everyday.

This week is Teacher Appreciation week and we would like to ask everyone to take a couple extra minutes, find a teacher and let them know how important they are in the lives of our young people.  The time they commit on a daily basis to plan for their classes, investigate new ideas, instruct in and out of the classroom, share life lessons with and to simply care for each student helps mold and shape our children in extraordinary ways.

To help celebrate this week the members of the PTA will be providing breakfast treats (like muffins, bagels, fruit) for the teacher on Tuesday, May 7th, and dessert type goodies (such as cookies, brownies, cupcakes) for lunch on Thursday, May 9th.

If you are interested in helping in the celebration feel free to bring your treats to the school on either of those days.  Lets plan to fill the teachers room full!


Jog-A-Thon Reminder!

Just a reminder that the Jog-A-Thon will be this Friday, April 19, 2013.

Wear comfortable shoes and bring a water bottle.

Collection envelopes can be returned to school at ANY TIME but must be returned by Friday morning before the Jog-A-Thon to be included in the drawing for prizes.

Don’t forget, we are trying to raise $5,000 to build a wood chip track at Wascher. Also, if we reach this goal Mr. Crain will wear footy pajamas for one whole day!!

We are still looking for a few more volunteers to help out on the day of the Jog-A-Thon.  If you are able to come and help count/verify the collection envelopes or would just like to help cheer and encourage the kids please let us know.  You can contact us at info@wascherpta.org for more information or to tell us you will be there.
