We want to take a moment and thank our teachers for the hard work they have done so far this year. The PTA is seizing the moment on 12 February to do just that. 12 February is an early release day and we are looking to provide the teachers with a Soup lunch.
If you have a favorite family recipe, we are sure the teachers would be willing to put it to the test.

ACES families, the library needs your help. Mr. Hamilton is looking for volunteers for short term and long-term projects. Volunteers do not need experience other than knowing the alphabet A-Z and numbers 0-9. (It is OK to hum and/or sing the alphabet song while in the library. This skill helps Mr. Hamilton on a daily basis.)
Special collections (Popular Series, books in Spanish, Graphic Novels, “I Can Read” series) are being created. Mr. Hamilton is seeking volunteers to help put stickers on these books. It’s as simple as coming into the library office, getting stickers and sticker covers, and going to the shelves to attach the stickers to the books.
Mr. Hamilton is looking for dedicated volunteers to help shelve library books on a weekly/bi-weekly basis. He will show you around the library and explain the process. This requires pushing a library cart and putting books back onto the bookshelves. Anyone is welcome to help out! But coming on a more consistent basis helps keep the books in circulation and provides more familiarity for volunteers. The more one shelves books, the easier it gets.
Lastly, Mr. Hamilton is seeking two parents to serve on the Media-Technology Advisory Committee (MTAC). The MTAC, comprised of parents and staff members, will review and determine policy for library and technology at ACES. This year, the committee will be tasked with drafting library policies. MTAC meetings will be held right after school no more than once a few times per year.
If you are looking to help out at ACES, the library could be the right spot for you. Please, contact Mr. Hamilton firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in volunteering. Thanks!
Donate Jigsaw Puzzles
Mr. Hamilton is looking for gently used jigsaw puzzles for the Media Center. If you have any to donate please bring them to Mr. Hamilton in the Media Center at any time.
School Improvement Leadership Team (SILT)
The School Improvement Leadership Team (SILT) meets the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month from 8:00am to 8:40am right at the school. Like it's title, the team focuses on continuous ways to improve our school and ensure a positive learning environment for our children. The team is able to accommodate 2 additional parent participants. If you are interested in being a part of the SILT please contact Laura Bowman.
Often times Abbotts Creek faculty have a need to have paperwork copied. The PTA is implementing a program i which teachers can put their needed items in a basket to be copied. The copy parent would then come to the school once a week to make copies. This is a huge administrative help for your faculty. If you are interested in helping in his capacity please contact Laura Bowman.
