5/9/17 PTO Blackboard Message

THANK YOU   Thank you to everyone who participated in Oak Point Night at Potbelly Sandwich Shop on April 20.  You helped raise over $180.  We appreciate your support of our school.


OAK POINT STAFF APPRECIATION WEEK  Oak Point Staff Appreciation Week is May 8-12, 2017 and coincides with National Teacher Appreciation Week.  The Oak Point PTO encourages students and families to thank these everyday superheros - their teachers, staff, and administrators - during Staff Appreciation Week.  The PTO has a couple of templates available on our website for students to write a thank you note or draw a picture to their teachers or favorite staff members.  We also have a “fill in the blank” letter for students in younger grades to use to thank their teachers and favorite staff.  Stay tuned to our Facebook page and Twitter feed to see how the PTO honors our teachers, staff, and administrators during Staff Appreciation Week.


OAK POINT WEEK AT NOTHING BUNDT CAKES  Oak Point Week at Nothing Bundt Cakes is May 8-13, during regular business hours (9:00AM-6:00PM).  Buy any bundt product in store and place your receipt in the Oak Point box at the register. Or, place an order online and add "Oak Point" to the comments section of the order form. At the end of the week, Nothing Bundt Cakes will donate 20% of the value of the collected receipts and online orders to Oak Point.


FINAL PTO MEETING OF THE SCHOOL YEAR  The final PTO meeting of the school year is May 11 at 9:30AM in the PAL.  Please join us for an update from the administration, a financial update, a review of the 2017-18 budget, a review of the 2017-18 calendar of events, and the election of the 2017-18 PTO board.


VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR KINDERGARTEN WELCOME & FIELD DAYS   Volunteers are needed for two upcoming events.  First, Eden Prairie Schools is hosting Kindergarten Welcome Events at all of the elementary schools this spring. We are looking for volunteers to help staff the Oak Point Welcome Event on May 18.  Sign up online and help make our incoming Kindergarten families feel welcome at Oak Point.  Field Days will be held on May 31 (Kindergarten, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, and 5th grade) and June 1 (1st grade, 4th grade, and 6th grade.)  Parent volunteers are needed for each grade level’s event to help ensure that things run smoothly.  Sign up online to volunteer.  


YEAR-END CELEBRATION   Our annual year-end celebration will be held June 1 behind the school on the basketball courts.  We will have four food trucks again this year: Taste of Target Field, Tot Boss, and two Kona Ice trucks.  All food trucks accept cash and credit cards.  There will also be a DJ and dunk tank.



Pictures from author Erin Soderberg’s April 14 visit can be viewed on our Facebook page.


On May 24, students will experience the next PTO-sponsored in house field trip, Orbit Earth Expo.  Students will get to “journey into space to create and experience the cycles, systems and relationships between the earth, moon and sun.”  They will “manipulate the models to experience eclipses, seasonal/lunar cycles, creation of winds, day/night cycles, tides, rotation vs revolution, physical characteristics of the earth, moon and sun, gravity, order of the planets, seasons and more.”
