FREEDOM HILL PTA EAGLE NEWS
March 9, 2021           
Good afternoon! We hope everyone is enjoying these weeks of transition. We have a few new announcements this week, plus some reminders. We are happy to announce that our spirit wear store is open again. Also, the last day to order Laura Gehl books is this Thursday. Our Ledo Family Dinner Out will take place next Monday and Tuesday, March 15 and 16. We will also have our PTA meeting on March 16 at 8 pm. Finally, please consider helping out the PTA by volunteering to serve on the board next year or participating in the nominating committee. More information is below. 
SPRING SPIRIT WEAR WEB STORE IS OPEN 
Our Spring Spirit Wear Webstore is open! We have lots of Freedom Hill spirit wear for sale, including tees and shorts to get ready for the warmer spring weather. Place your orders anytime between now and Sunday March 28th. Orders will be shipped approximately 3 weeks from the end of the sale. Select USPS shipping at checkout if you would like your order shipped to your home. All other student orders will be available to pick up at Michelle Zahalsky's house, down the street from Freedom Hill. Staff can pick up orders in their school mailboxes.

ORDER YOUR LAURA GEHL BOOKS
Laura Gehl virtually visited Freedom Hill last week. We had over 300 unique logins for the event! We hope your students enjoyed it. 
 
Hooray for Books! is providing a selection of books at special discounted price for this Read Across America Event. There are 2 different ways to order:

1) Fill out and return this form with a check (made to Freedom Hill Elementary School) by Thursday, March 11. (Books are slightly less expensive if you pay this way).
or
2) To pay online, fill out this this form and pay at Pay4SchoolStuff

Books should be available for pickup at FHES by March 19 and will include personalized bookplates signed by the author. You can learn more about Ms. Gehl and her wonderful books at https://lauragehl.com/.  Contact Mrs. Rossman at Melissa.Rossman@fcps.edu with questions.  
PTA BOARD NOMINATING COMMITTEE   
We are looking for volunteers to serve on our nominating committee. The nominating committee helps facilitate the PTA Board election process for 2020-2021. It's a fairly low time commitment and a great way to get to help. If interested, contact us for info.
