Thank you again for the heartfelt donations made as part of our Neighbors Feeding Neighbors initiative. These donations have covered the costs of the last 4 weeks of warm meals for our families and for that we are truly grateful! The PTO Executive Board met last week to discuss the continuation of the program and unanimously voted to use PTO funds to extend the program through May! The donation link on our website will remain open should you still wish to give or give again. Every dollar donated to this initiative will go to helping our families in need. We are proud to be a part of our Red Oak Community!
Meals for week 3 and 4 were provided by El Buren Caribbean Cuisine and Judy's Pizza. In each of those weeks over 35 warm meals were provided! Both restaurants have been amazing partners and we hope that you will consider them for pick-up or delivery this week! Tomorrow, the 'PTO Special' for week 5 will be coming from Max's Deli in Highland Park!
You can learn more about and donate to our warm meal program on our website, under Donate*Support*Feed. Feel free to share this link with family or friends who are looking to support a worthy cause - there is an option for 'Guests' to use to donate on the mail page. https://www.redoakpto.org/Rlt/index.cfm.
A couple other reminders...
5th Grade Celebration - Normally at the end of the school year there are events planned to celebrate our graduating 5th graders. Please know that our committee is still planning (safe) ways to make the end of this year special for our students! More details will be provided to 5th grade parents soon!
School Supplies (2020-2021) - During a "normal" school year, this would be the time to start our school supply sale. Due to the circumstances this year we will be postponing our sale to the summertime. We are using EPI for our school supply ordering again this year. School supplies will be sold from June 12 to July 7 and will be online only. The website, lists and order flyer will be posted on the Facebook Red Oak Parent Network, in the PTO weekly newsletter, and in Mrs. Bellini's newsletter at a later date.
Spring After School Club - all refunds have been processed. Please check your credit card statements. If you think you are missing your refund, please contact us. We encourage any parents who may need after school care when we return to school to contact Innovation Learning for information on their program (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Yearbooks - Thanks to our awesome yearbook committee (Carmen Kini and Farrah Zick) our book is finished and will be printed! Details on distribution will be provided soon.
