If you placed an order for a school supply kit last school year, they will be arriving soon. All kits will be delivered to the school for parent pickup the week of August 17th. We could use the help of a couple folks for sorting the delivery and for the pickup. Stay tuned for the exact details.

- Fall Festival's Silent Auction and Raffle (3 people) - Solicit donated items from businesses (mainly desk work involving letter writing and online applications), make raffle baskets and present silent auction items, and man the silent auction during the event. We already have two people who can help but need someone to take the lead.
- Christmas Tree Ornaments (2 people) - Organize the craft materials for each grade to make ornaments for Catonsville's tree lighting ceremony. This project will occur the first week of November.
- Literature Night Co-Chairs (2 people) - Organize our evening celebration of literature and learning, scheduled for March. It is a long way off, but we would love to find those special someones soon.

In addition to the required supplies, each grade also provides a list of suggested donation items to help get your children's classrooms off to a good start. Consider supporting your child's teacher by donating some of these frequently needed supplies.
