Fifth Grade Student Volunteers:

It is a fun tradition for our fifth grade students to help the PTO by taking on the role of young servers during Italian Night. We need students to help serve lemonade and water, clear tables, and set place settings for our dinner guests.

It is required that a parent be in attendance while students are working. If the parent is able to help while there, that would be great too!

All student volunteers must pre-register in order to work that night. Please fill out this request form, return it to your teacher and arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled time. Thank you for your help!

_____ I am in 5th grade and would like to help from 4:15-5:30pm. 

_____ I am in 5th grade and would like to help from 5:30-7pm. 

*Placemat Ads*

In order to defray the cost of food and paper products of this fundraiser, we are offering advertising space on our placemats for businesses and families.

The cost for a business card ad (2” x 3.5”) is $40.00. A double size ad (4”x3.5”) is $70. Family members can purchase a personal line ad for only $10.00. This is a great way to show support for your school or send a message to your child to honor his/her hard work and efforts this year. What a fun surprise for your child to see their name and words of encouragement in front of every diner that night!

Please Return by Monday, January 9, 2017.

Checks can be made payable to “Johnny Appleseed PTO”.

Please email with any questions or ways in which you can help!

Thank you in advance for your continued support of the PTO and Johnny Appleseed School.
