Talent Show: The Park View Talent Show offers another opportunity for you to get involved! We are in need of a Chair to plan and coordinate with assistance from Mrs. Peterson, as needed. Participation has been high in recent years, and it is suggested that this event be Co-Chaired. The Talent Show will be held in May, date TBD.
In addition to Chair Volunteer Opportunities, we are also in need of volunteers to work our upcoming events. Please let us know of your availability by completing a PTC Volunteer Sign-Up Form, and return the form via your child's backpack to "PTC Volunteers". You may also contact Nikki Dawson, email@example.com to volunteer or for additional information.
Amazon Smiles: The PTC would also like to announce our school participation in AmazonSmile. AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when customers shop on AmazonSmile using the Park View PTC unique link, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organizations selected by customers. Please take advantage of this charitable opportunity!
