THE HOLIDAYS ARE HERE!
Indian summer has arrived (in full effect) and it’s hard to believe the holidays are actually here. BUT THEY ARE! We hope you are enjoying the smaller fundraisers we’ve been having throughout the fall. Pizza night was a great success, the new SGES gear everyone is rocking looks awesome and the Scarecrows haven’t failed to deliver creativity, smiles and laughs. Reminding us all, especially in the spirit of the upcoming holidays, that this little SGES community we have is truly one to be grateful for and appreciative of. We really do have so much to be thankful for!
We are excited to announce that our website is current and up to date!! Please refer to seagirtpto.com to read past newsletters, meeting minutes, as well as find the latest calendar info, order forms and PTO updates. Along with our website, our Instagram page, @sgpatriotpride, is always a great place to find out about sales, meeting reminders and other PTO goings on.
We still have a handful of Scarecrows left. It’s not too late to buy one, decorate it and attach it to the fence along Bell Place. We are REALLY enjoying seeing what all of our families have been coming up with! Scarecrows are $25 and can be purchased through a PTO board member. They are no longer available through myfooddays.com. All participants will be entered into a raffle and the winner will be chosen before Thanksgiving break. ***Please include your name somewhere on your scarecrow.***
THANKSGIVING PIE SALE
Many thanks go to Dana Reid for organizing our Thanksgiving Pie Sale with Delicious Orchards! There are 5 pies to choose from and are $17 each, with a portion of the each pie going directly to the PTO. Order forms can be found on the PTO website, seagirtpto.com. Tomorrow, Tuesday, November 10th, is the final day order forms may be submitted. Please drop your order form and check, made payable to Sea Girt PTO, into the locked drop box at 706 New York Blvd. Pies will be available to pick up from that same location on Tuesday, November 24th, between 4:00 – 6:00pm. Unclaimed pies will be donated to the St. Denis Food Pantry.
HOLIDAY PLANT SALE
We have had the good fortune to pair up with Barlow’s this holiday season, thanks to the efforts of Alison Soltis! Shop online at Barlow’s for locally grown poinsettias and fresh-cut greens. Again, a portion of the proceeds will benefit the PTO. Deadline for ordering is Friday, November 13th at 6:00pm. Head to the PTO website or @sgpatriotpride on Instagram to find the link and password to start shopping! All purchases will be available for pickup at 622 Chicago Blvd, Monday, November 30th between 3:45-5:30pm.
Calendars can still be purchased through a PTO board member. They are $30 each. The calendar includes a directory of each SGES family’s address, which may come in very handy as we enter the Christmas and holiday card season!
Thursday, November 12th’s PTO meeting has been cancelled. We look forward to seeing you all again in the new year!
