SPRING BOOK FAIR
Hello Artondale Families! It's time for our Spring Book Fair. The theme this year is Happy Camper! The good thing about helping out at the book fair is that it's not a long term commitment. It can be as little as 2 hours and you're done. It takes a lot of hands to make this work, and we would appreciate any help you are willing to give. We have spots for set up, cashier and tear down. The set up and tear down are easier than you might think. The books come in rolling carts, and we roll them right into the library and open them up. You just have to straighten out the books, and then put down some table cloths and set out the rest of the books on the tables. With a lot of hands it makes it quick and easy, and you'll get the first peek at the fair :)
We would love to see you there!

Volunteers needed for Girls on the Run!
GOTR is looking for a Site Liaison and a Coach for the Artondale team. Site Liaison does not need to coach (but can!), helps recruit team members, posts signs & flyers, and is the main point of contact at Artondale. The Coach will lead practices 2 days/week after school (3:30-5:30pm). All practice details are pre-planned by GOTR; coaching role is to lead, encourage, and empower their team to feel good inside and out! Both of these are FUN roles and a great way to volunteer with this program. Please contact Leslie Hughes, GOTR Program Manager & Coach, at 360.265.1031 or firstname.lastname@example.org
This year we will be looking to replace many of our PTA Board members who are either finishing up their terms or have 5th graders moving on to middle school. If you would like to learn more,
you are welcome to join us at the meeting. Many of our current Board members work part-time or full-time. And even if you have no PTA experience, grab a few friends and be a part of making Artondale such a great place
for our kids. We will teach you everything you
need to know!
If you are interested, or have questions, please email Candy at email@example.com.
