The Charger Challenge is back with a new and exciting format! This year’s challenge is a family fun 5k run/walk on December 6th with a holiday theme. Come out and enjoy some fun and fitness while getting into the holiday spirit. Run through a life-sized gingerbread house, scurry by candy cane lane, dash around gumdrop trail, and get a “kiss” under the mistletoe. The proceeds of the event go to the Hamilton Education Foundation for the benefit of the students in the Hamilton School District.
Registrations by November 26th include a custom, holiday themed dri-fit long sleeve t-shirt.

Marcy Order Form 2014
Order extra-they make great gifts! Forms and payments are due by October 31st. Passes will be delivered by November 21st.
As you have moments throughout the year that you’d like to express gratitude or love to the Marcy teachers in the form of a gift, consider using the Amazon Wish Lists that many of them have set up. You can either search for “Marcy PTO” under “Find a Wish List” on Amazon.com. Or, just use this link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/?ie=UTF8&cid=A8F7C7IG4AEIE
The teachers that have submitted a list can be found on the left-hand side. Click on that teacher’s name and you will see their individual list. You may notice that some of the teachers who reach the whole school – art, guidance, reading, math, technology – have submitted lists as well. If you order from Amazon.com directly, those items will automatically be removed from their list. Your name, however, as the gift giver will not automatically be added to the gift order, so be sure to write a little note to the teacher with your name if it’s not your intention to give anonymously.
The PTO hopes that these lists are helpful to you during the holidays, birthdays, teacher appreciation or just because.
The Marcy Student Directory is currently in the process of being put together. Until then, if you have questions regarding addresses or phone numbers, please contact your child’s room parent.
Our next boxtop contest ends this Friday, October 17. The winning classroom will win an extra recess and popsicles hosted by Mrs. Trawicki! If you need an extra sheet, you can find one on the PTO website. Boxtop 50 Sheet A few important reminders: make sure the boxtops have not expired, turn in bonus certificates separately (marked with the teacher’s name), and remember to put the teacher’s name on the sheet before you turn it in. Thank you for clipping boxtops and earning money for Marcy!!!
Each year the PTO Sponsors a dinner for our wonderful teachers and staff at Marcy during the Fall teacher conferences. This year we will be setting up a soup and salad bar in the LGA. Please consider donating a soup, salad bar item, or dessert to make this event successful. We will also be collecting 6 centerpieces to decorate the tables at the event. These are given away as door prizes to the teachers at the end of the night. The link below will allow you to sign up for the specific needs for the evening.
All donations can be dropped off in the PTO Room adjacent to the LGA before 3pm on Thursday, October 23rd. There is a fridge available for perishable items. Serving plates/crockpots will be washed at the end of the evening and will be left on PTO counter for pick up.
Thank you in advance for your donations!
