HAPPY MOTHERS DAY! Hope all the mother’s in our Sea Girt family enjoyed a special day with their children. Nothing better than that on a rainy Sunday! Sea Girt PTO is entering the home stretch for the 2018-2019 school year and there are still lots of activities and fun things to still enjoy.
The online store has been updated to reflect lower prices and remaining inventory for our Sale! Quantities are limited so don’t wait to get the last of this year’s apparel at reduced prices. We don’t anticipate any more orders until next school year.
It is that time of year again! Time to count the box tops and see which class will win the prize this year. Box tops are due in no later than May 15th. Keep clipping!
Upcoming: Dance-A-Thon-Rock for the Gym Refresh!
THIS FRIDAY MAY 17TH-ROCK FOR THE GYM REFRESH!
The Dance A Thon fundraiser this year will be “Rock for the Gym Refresh”. There is a lot on the horizon for the gym makeover and the Sea Girt PTO is proud to support this effort. The proceeds from this event will go toward needed improvements for the Sea Girt Elementary School Gym. The information for this event went home last week. See link below:
Please encourage your child to obtain donations or get sponsors as the proceeds will go to the Sea Girt Elementary School Gym Refresh which all the students will get to enjoy. Thanks to the help of our volunteers we are committed to making this event happen again. The kids absolutely love it and the feedback from the kids when we tell them we will be having a Dance-A-Thon is pure excitement.
We are excited for ALL classes to participate and enjoy. This is an event for both kids and parents. It is so much fun to attend and watch after the long stretch of testing the kids will be more than ready for the Dance A Thon. There will be individual prizes for the fundraising effort and snacks for ALL! Preparing a dance routine with your friends, class or team mates is encouraged but not mandatory. Students can get together on their own or during recess if that want to display their talents during the event.

We are so excited to have this event back and engage as much of our local community as we can.
This will also be combined with the Grand Reopening of the Baltimore Park after some needed renovations. Very exciting. Confirmed are the pony rides, face painting, balloons, rock wall and much more!
