Fourth Grade Fundraiser Updates


Baseball Store and Raffle:  April 9-13

The store and raffle will be open in the lobby outside the cafeteria before and after school every day during those two weeks.  There are lots of really great raffle prizes that both kids and adults would enjoy!

Long Sleeved T-Shirts and Sweatpants

Restaurant Nights

Several local restaurants will be supporting our fundraiser.  Otto Pizza in Arlington on Monday, April 30, Not Your Average Joe’s in Arlington every Tuesday in May, and Blue Ribbon BBQ in Arlington, Newton, and Dedham on Wednesday, May 30.  We will distribute flyers that are needed for Not Your Average Joe’s and Otto. Feel free to tell friends and family in the area and even spread the news on social media! The more people we have participating the more money we will raise!

Book Wars (April 30 – May 4)

No Jedi mind tricks, the Peirce Spring book fair will be out of this galaxy! Hosted by the PTO, this week-long event will raise money for school-wide enrichment programs while the kids discover great books, find reading inspiration, and have fun all week long. We’ll kick off on Monday, April 30 and run through the family dance on Friday, May 4 (May the 4th Be With You). We will also be open before and after school on select days and will be visited by all students during the week. In order to make this a success for the PTO and the kids we need your help. You can volunteer for set up, during regular library hours, during the dance, and to break down, here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0a48aaa82ba1fe3-peirce Also look for a flier coming home in the next several weeks with more information. It is your destiny to come to the book fair!

School Zone Safety — Starting Monday, March 5

In order to keep our kids safe and to prevent recurring traffic issues, an adult volunteer will be posted at the Newland Road driveway before and after school to enforce the traffic rules.

Please remember:

  • no parking in the fire lane
  • no adults getting out of the cars
  • this is a strictly drop and roll zone
  • if you need to get out of your car to either pick up or drop off a child, then you must go find a legal street parking space

We are looking for volunteers. This is a 15-20 minute commitment during morning drop-off or afternoon pick-up, one (or more) days per week. You can sign-up to help here: www.SignUpGenius.com/go/20F0B4AA5AE2CA02-peirce2

Traffic rules and parking restrictions are in place to improve everyone’s safety. The safety of our children depends on us. With your help we can keep the Peirce community safe! Any questions, contact Marian Hanley (hanleymead@comcast.net)
