It's Fall Fundraising Time! The fall fundraiser is one of the PTA's main sources of income. Money goes towards field trips, classroom supplies, the garden, Field Day and much more. Catalogs went home in the Wed. Folder. We're selling cookie dough, gifts, and magazine subscriptions through Nov. 5. If you would prefer not to buy/sell something, but would still like to support Border Star, your child can always collect monetary donations. 100% of monetary donations will go to our school and they're tax deductible. Make checks out to Border Star PTA or donate HERE

Volunteer Needs: Fundraising is a big job and the PTA needs some more folks to join the fundraising committee. Interested? Email Kris. If fundraising is not your cup of tea, but you'd like to help in another capacity we could sure use you. Contact Tim

Fall Parade and Class Parties will be on Wed., Oct. 31. The parade begins at 1:30 pm. Students will change into costumes at school. No weapons or masks are allowed. Each classroom celebrates differently. If you have not yet received a communication about classroom parties, your teacher may still be in need of a room parent. If so, reach out and offer to help. Starting Oct. 25, the office will be collecting donations of trick-or-treat items (candy, snacks, stickers, trinkets) for the parade.

The Unparty is an alternative to classroom celebrations for children who may not celebrate holidays. Students or parents need to inform their teacher(s) if they would rather attend the Unparty. The Unparty is in the library, where Ms. Parker will have activities planned.

Spirit Wear: Every student received a blue spirit wear shirt to wear to field trips and on Fridays, courtesy of the PTA.  If your child did not get one, talk to his/her teacher. If you need a different size, email Meridith. To help the PTA cover this expense, parents may donate $5/shirt HERE. Buy additional spirit wear HERE

Our Sweet Potato Harvest is on Tues. Oct. 23 from 4:00-5:00 p.m.  All are welcome! This is a great time to get to know the garden and get involved! Contact Molly with questions.

LINC is hosting a Fall Family Fun Festival on Wed., Oct. 24, 4:30-6:30 p.m. All Border Star families are welcome to join in the fun.

Parent Involvement Matters

Our Fall Book Fair was a huge success! Thanks to all of you who showed up to support it by shopping and volunteering! All proceeds from our annual book fairs go to restocking classroom libraries. We'd especially like to thank Liz Townsend for leading the efforts two years in a row.
