Ski Club and Texas Roadhouse Gift Cards

Just a reminder that the HHMS Paoli Peaks Ski Club Registrations are due by Friday, December 1. For program information and registration form, visit http://hhmspto.net/paoli-peaks-ski-club/ . Families who have joined in the past have found it to be lots of fun, and the deep discount is a huge bonus!

Also, we are once again offering Texas Roadhouse Gift Cards for order this holiday season. Information was sent home with students last week, but if you did not receive the flier, you can get a copy here: TX Roadhouse Flyer2018 The deadline for orders is Thursday, December 7, but orders turned in the week of November 27-December 1 will be eligible for incentives. Texas Roadhouse Gift Cards make great stocking stuffers, and 20% of the sales goes back to PTO to fund our programs–win win! Orders will be distributed at school on December 15. If you have questions, email fundraising@hhmspto.net.

November’s Terrific Third Thursday

It’s that time of month again: tomorrow is Terrific Third Thursday! Tomorrow, Thursday, November 16–Box Tops, and Chick-Fil-A, and Kroger shopping, Oh My!

Box Tops: Remember to trim and put in a baggie with the student’s name on a slip of paper inside (writing the name on the outside of the baggie tends to rub off).

Chick-Fil-A: Dine-in, carry-out, and drive-through all qualify. Just remember to tell them your order is for HHMS Spirit Day so our PTO benefits from a portion of your total.

Kroger Shopping: Remember to tie your Kroger Card to HHMS PTO, and we earn a portion of every purchase!  Remember we are running a fun contest for teachers until December 1–Write your teacher name at the top of your Kroger receipts showing the HHMS PTO number, and turn in to the PTO box in the commons to help your teacher win a Kroger gift card! For more information on this contest, see our flier here: Kroger Teacher Competition STUDENT FLYER If you haven’t yet tied your Kroger Card to HHMS PTO, there are detailed instructions available here: Kroger Rewards Program How-To .

Ski Club, and Spirit Wear, and Talent Show, Oh My!

Jag families,

We discovered an error in our Ski Club flier that went out yesterday. We have updated it and added a Frequently Asked Questions sheet as well. You can see both the FAQ and registration form at http://hhmspto.net/paoli-peaks-ski-club/

Spirit Wear orders are due this Friday, November 10. If your student did not bring home a flier or misplaced it, the form is available at Spirit Wear November 2017 . Checks should be made payable to HHMS PTO.

And finally, does your middle schooler have talent? Do you want to see talented kids perform? Would you like to help kids in our community help other kids in our community have a great Christmas? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then join us for the 6th Annual HHMS Got Talent Talent Show benefiting Miles for Merry Miracles and the Salvation Army Angel Tree Program. For more info contact Teresa Hebert at teresa.hebert@m4mm.org This youth produced talent show has raised about $10k in 5 years to help Angel Tree kids in Southern Indiana!

What a Week!

Jag Families,

We have finished this week strong and had lots of fun in the process! We collected over 12,000 Box Tops, which translates into $1200 for our school and our classroom grant program. Thank you to everyone, and keep clipping!  HHMS families also once again came through and helped support our Walkathon fun day, keeping our kids safe while they had fun on the track. We can’t tell you enough how much we appreciate our volunteers!

On this final Friday as Fall Break begins, we wanted to let everyone know of a special offer available: Altitude Trampoline Park is making available a fall break special: Tuesday, Oct. 3 & Tuesday Oct. 10 5:00 – 9:00 p.m. they will give our families a special rate of $13 for TWO hours of jump time PLUS SOCKS! Even better, HHMS will receive $5 back when you go during these times. Win-Win! Altitude Trampoline Park is located at 4420 Dixie Hwy #220, Louisville, KY 40216. Tell them HHMS sent you!

For those leaving town, we hope you have a safe trip, and for all our families, many thanks to the support you give our school every day. Happy Fall Break!

Final Plea for Volunteers!

A message from President Connie Hynes:

Jag Families,

PTO is so very thankful to all our parents and grandparents who have stepped up to help with tomorrow’s Walkathon Fun Fest. The good news is the weather looks like it’s going to be perfect (dry!) for the event, so there shouldn’t be a need to reschedule. Unfortunately we still have a number of open volunteer spots, especially with the inflatable stations.  We absolutely have to have adequate supervision to keep our students safe while they have fun, and if we aren’t able to get enough volunteers, we’ll have to look at combining and/or shortening the event. This is something we really don’t want to do, because it would mean shortchanging our students after their hard work raising money for their school. If you or someone you know in the Jags Family can help tomorrow, please please please sign up at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f094facab28a13-highland .

And finally, we wanted to remind everyone that tomorrow is superhero dress up day for the Walkathon. Costumes must be dress code appropriate, and no masks are allowed.

Thank you again to all our families who have stepped up to help with this event. We literally can’t do this without you!

Volunteer Help Needed!

Walkathon is this Wednesday, Setpember 27, and we still have lots of unfilled volunteer spots for that day, especially to cover the inflatable stations for all grades. We truly cannot pull this event together without you, so if you are able to volunteer some time that day, we would greatly appreciate it! Our kids did a great job raising money for their school, and we want to make sure they have a fun day to celebrate their work. Follow this link to sign up and help us out: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f094facab28a13-highland Thank you as always!!!
