by Stacey Raffi

September came and went in the blink of an eye!

October is here and it is jam packed with many events, meetings, and activities!  Below is a summary of ES PTSA focused events.

Fall Fundraiser:  We thank you for your generous support!  Our Alternative Fundraiser has brought in $6,000!  Profit from Genevieve's orders is approximately $3,500 which leaves us about $3,000 short of our goal. 

These funds are integral for ES-PTSA and all that we do including Math/Reading/Bingo/Family Fitness Nights, Teacher Grants, and Culture Connection programs.

If you would like to participate in the Alternate Fundraiser, simply send a check made payable to Holliston PTSA or cash into Placentino/Miller office in an envelope marked "Fall Fundraiser/PTSA,"  We hope to have all donations in by October 16 to ensure funding for our events scheduled for the 2015-2016 school year.

We are selling Boston Coffee Cakes through Genevieve's from now until Friday, October 16, 2015.  In order for us to place an order we need to order 150 cakes.
