MESSAGE FROM BOONE PTA PRESIDENT
Hello, Boone Community!
On Monday, anxiety will be high for many families and staff as Boone transitions into in-person learning. Either way your family chooses to learn, whether it be virtual or in-person, please know that Boone PTA supports you. We are here to answer any questions or concerns. Teachers and staff, we recognize your effort, support you wholeheartedly, and will advocate for you as we all navigate unknown waters.
Please feel to email me firstname.lastname@example.org or any of the PTA board members. You can also reach us on Facebook through our group page Boone Elementary Community.
– Crystal Brothwell-Hernandez
JOIN THE BOONE PTA
Joining Boone PTA as a member is one of the easiest ways to support our school and have a voice in our children’s education.
Large portions of our budget go to teacher reimbursements. We know teachers often have to dig into their own pockets to have what they need to teach, and we want to ease that burden throughout the school year.
Go to boonepta.com and become a member today. Individual memberships are $8. Purchase 2 memberships for $15. You can also sponsor a teacher or staff member. Grandparents, aunts/uncles, community members, and even students are all welcome to join.
OUR GOAL IS 279 MEMBERS. In the coming days, we’ll announce raffles and prizes as we work toward our goal.
WE LOVE OUR TEACHERS!
To add a little sunshine to our teachers’ first week back to in-person learning, Boone PTA is donating $100 to every teacher to help with supplies for their classrooms. If you would like to contribute to ease some of these funds, please donate here: https://boonepta.square.site
If you want to donate directly to your teacher, Boone PTA is coordinating with the teachers for their favorites list and an Amazon wishlist. This email will be sent out in the near future. Thank you everyone for the continued support!
WORLD TEACHERS’ DAY, Mon. Oct. 5
Please hang, tie or have your student draw a light blue ribbon in honor of all our amazing teachers. We would love for you to share a picture of your student and their ribbon on the Facebook Boone Elementary Community page.
SPIRIT NIGHT AT BUSH’S CHICKEN, Tue. Oct. 20
Pick up dinner through the drive-thru at Bush’s Chicken, Brodie Lane, and when you mention Boone Spirit Night, our school gets a portion of proceeds!
If you know a local business that would like to partner with Boone for future Spirit Nights, please message us on Facebook.
BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION
Collecting Box Tops for Education is an easy way to earn money for Boone and can be done digitally. Download the app here: https://www.boxtops4education.com/referred Use referral code S0UE77C4
If you shop curbside (HEB, Target, etc.), send your digital receipt to email@example.com to get Box Tops credits for our school.
Every little bit helps! Make sure to give credit to your student on the app OR contact Luci Zavala with your student’s earnings info so she can mark you down on our next collection drive!
