PDF DocumentFun Run Flyer 9-11-2020

The PTA Fun Run is the fundraising base of the PTA.  Money that is raised is put directly into the PTA general fund and is used to support Angell students and teachers. The Angell Fun Run is one of the things we look forward to in the fall. This year we are going virtual! So, that means you'll run (in your fun run shirt) with your families. You'll design your own route to take. Maybe you want to bike instead? Go for it! Even though we are apart, we'll all be together in spirit!

A few details:

  • If we meet our goal, Mr. G will sleep on the SCHOOL ROOF!
  • Top classroom in earnings wins tie-dye face masks.
  • Every $50 raised puts you in a raffle to win a $100 Amazon gift card
  • Online only donating
  • More information to come

We are looking for businesses that would like to be a Fun Run Sponsor. The PTA is a non-profit 501(c)(3) group with a leveled sponsorship program. Please email Heather at angellfunrun@gmail.com for more information.

Angell 2020-2021 PTA Committee Information

Angell 2020-2021 PTA Committee Information

The Angell Elementary School PTA is supported by membership fees, donations & fundraisers for all PTA sponsored programs and activities.  Being a part of the PTA is the best way to have input and insight into educational programs, policies and issues that will affect your child now and in the future. 

We meet the first Tuesday of each month (with a few exceptions) at 7pm in the Angell Media Center. We welcome new ideas and motivated people to make those ideas come to life! We fund a variety of projects at Angell including all assemblies, teacher classroom stipends, media center purchases and 5th grade camp stipends.  We also fund fun family social events like Art Night, Skate Night, Reading Night and more. Our Fun Run is the fundraising base for the PTA and is held in October. 

It takes a village to get the job done. We have a group of fun and dedicated volunteers to keep the wheels moving.  The following is a list of committees with chair contact information. Please contact the chair if you would like to become involved with a committee. We have a few OPEN chairs this year. Can you help??

Angell Elementary Room Parents 2020/21

The goal of the Angell Room Parent program is to support the classroom teachers by assisting in the planning, organization and implementation of classroom activities and PTA sponsored events.

Opportunities

  1. Communicate with parents about upcoming PTA events
  2. Plan and assist with class parties
  3. Coordinate classroom volunteers
  4. Preparation of classroom materials
  5. Help with special activities and field trips (as able)

Responsibilities

  1. At least one room parent should attend PTA meetings throughout the year to stay informed of events and activities and share the information with the parents
  2. Set up an initial meeting with your child’s teacher to discuss the needs of the classroom and how best to organize activities
  3. Collect classroom money for parties & projects
    --It is suggested that room parents collect $15-20 per student in September/October.  Please refrain from collecting throughout the year. These funds are used for:
    **Supplies and crafts for the parties ($2/each child x 4 parties)
    **Class basket for the ICE CREAM SOCIAL ($3/each child)
    **Teacher Appreciation ($2/child)
    **Teacher Gift at the end of the year ($2/child)
    Money that is collected will be held in a classroom account.  Room Parents purchase items out of pocket and submit a reimbursement form. Check request forms are on the Angell website under the “PTA” section. Attach receipts! Plan on a 2 week turnaround from the time receipts are provided for checks to be distributed.
  4. Attend Curriculum Night and/or email classroom families introducing yourself
  5. Watch for PTA plans during Teacher Appreciation Week and make a plan to recognize your teacher

Please do not spend more than $75 out of your class fund on the baskets. Soliciting donations from area businesses is another way to fill your basket. 

Guidelines for Room Parents

  3. Correspondence should be sent out only AFTER being approved by the teacher

Guidelines for Classroom Parties

  2. Once the party details are finalized, review and obtain approval from the teacher 
  3. Party should be limited to 1½ hours unless the teacher requests otherwise.
