Eat at Not Your Average Joe’s on Tuesdays in June
The 4th Grade has been doing a fundraiser for Pitching in for Kids and Alanna and Joshua Foundation. Tuesdays for the entire month of June, Peirce School’s 4th Grade will be the Not Your Average Cause at Not Your Average Joe’s in Arlington. 15% of your purchase will go to these two charities. Please bring this flyer with you to help support these charities.
Ice Cream Social
The Ice Cream Social will be held on Friday, May 24th at 2:15 at the back entrance to the school – enjoy seeing your teachers scoop bowls of ice cream and kick off the long weekend!! Peirce School Cinch Bags and Peirce t-shirts will be available for purchase.
Spring Fair Call for Volunteers
The Peirce Spring Fair is on Saturday, June 1 from 11 AM until 3 PM. This is one of the major fundraisers for all the enrichment and social activities the PTO provides for our students, and is a great chance for people who have not yet been able to volunteer in the school to help out. We have lots of fun activities and we’re asking for only one hour of your time, or a cake or two! Here are the ways you can help:
- Sign up to help with setup/cleanup or activities (5th graders can help with many of the activities)
- Sign up to bring a shade tent or a cake for the cake walk
Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Colonial Day is Coming!
Colonial Day is Friday, June 7th! Please join us in helping to make the third grade’s traditional Colonial Day celebration something to remember for years to come. We are looking for volunteers to help us chaperone the students throughout the day, run crafts and games, and prepare and serve our history making feast. There are time slots available for everyone from one hour long to full-day opportunities – volunteers just need to have completed a CORI form. If you can’t make it to Peirce that day, that’s fine. We welcome your other contributions of food or materials. Anything you can manage to help with is welcomed! Click this link for more information, and THANK YOU!
