The Pattison Elementary PTA Nominating Committee is currently seeking candidates for 2016-2017 Executive Officers. These are elected positions and must have nominations (if even only one) in order to proceed to election at the General PTA meeting in the Spring. Our current Officers are graduating, have served their terms, or are vacating their positions. It is pertinent to get the Officers in place as they appoint the remaining Chairs of the Executive Board.
The description of duties can be found on our website or you are welcome to contact the existing Officers directly for more details (see Directory). There are required monthly Board meetings as well as 4 General Membership meetings throughout the year.

Mrs. Basler's Class
605 Box Tops!
Ms. Nelson's Class
to the winners of the Winter merchant rebates contests!
Each student in both classes will come home with a treat on February 5th. Thank you to all the students and parents who clipped away this season. Box Tops will be shipped to the warehouse March 1st, but it looks like we are almost at $2000 worth of Box Tops collected for this school year! That's pretty amazing for something that would have otherwise been thrown in the trash. Thanks again!
Check out the Merchant Rebates Page (Fundraiser Tab) on our website for the latest counts by classroom for this school year and to see how your class compares to the rest of the school!
The next contest is already underway! Remember to check expiration dates on the Box Tops and to include the UPC code on the Labels for Education. If you have misplaced your collection sheet, you can print again from our website.

We will be collecting money for three weeks. The campaign starts on Feb 8 and will wrap up on Feb 26. There are a few special events and incentives along the way to motivate the kiddos to get out there and collect some money!
See Tuesday Folders for full schedule & and PTA facebook page for reminders!
Students can bring coins, cash or checks. To make it easier this year we also have on online donation page!
