The Eagle Express - Mohr PTA Newsletter

October 24, 2012


Communication Reminder

Please take the time each week to read The Eagle Express in its entirety as this is the PTA's primary form of communication. You will receive up-to-date information about activities that are PTA and school related, after school enrichment classes, as well as many events throughout the community. 
In an effort to be more environmentally conscientious and leave a smaller footprint, we will progressively be sending fewer reminders and announcements home in paper form. In addition to the Eagle Express, you can also find many useful links and information on our website www.mohrpta.org


Thank you for helping us make our world a better place for our children.

Next Week!!!
 Wednesday, October 31st   
9:30 am

We will parade around the park and later move on to the classrooms for instruction. 
Students that wish to participate in the costume parade must: 
  • Dress in costumes at home BEFORE coming to school.
  • Wear costumes that can be worn over regular school clothes. There will be no time to change.
  • Bring a bag to school to keep costumes in after the parade.
  • Mark all parts of the costumes with the student's name to identify them in case of loss.
  • No students shall be allowed to call home to get costumes before the parade.
Appropriateness of Costumes & Rules:
  • Costumes should not be of a violent, gory, or messy nature. This includes fake blood, colored hairspray, dyes, facial make-up, or other potentially messy items.
  • Costume props such as guns, spears, and swords are not allowed.
  • If masks are worn, they should provide adequate vision for the wearer to walk safely.
  • Costumes and masks that depict the results of violent acts, or unnecessarily grotesque images, are not allowed.
As in all activities at the school, if religious, cultural or personal beliefs do not allow a child's participation, parents may opt to keep students home until the costume parade is completed, or we will provide a place for non-participants to stay during that time. If you have any questions, feel free to contact your child's teacher. 
Mohr School can still earn $1 for every $20 spent per transaction until Dec. 31, 2012. Continue to shop, save your receipts and drop them off in the collection box at office.  
Remember to bring your Box Tops and Labels for Education UPCs also. Our first submission is at the end of this month. 
If you would like to help coordinate these programs, please contact Doris Lem: djlem@yahoo.com.

For the Love of Writing Camp Grades 3-5 
Come and explore the writing adventure through a unit of study that shows writers how to craft ideas and grow as a writer.  
Session #2 is taking the craft and developing writing through stories.  Writers learn about what it means to do the "next step" in their own piece of writing. It increases their independence during the editing process through small group conferences. Along with a weekly activity, they're given time to write and have conversations, which improve on their strengths and interests. It's flexible and inviting. Space is limited!
Students who attended session #1 receive $25 off.
