Attention 6th Grade Families!

posted Nov 10, 2020, 11:12 AM by Web Coordinator AGIS PTA

Bend-La Pine Schools :: Welcome Incoming 6th Graders!
Hello 6th Grade Families!

As you are all probably aware, 6th grade teachers do not usually have Room Parents.  However, during this wacky year, we thought that it would be helpful to our teachers and families if we had a contact person for each class.  Our goal for this contact person is to help communicate information to families such as PTA events, activities or projects that only pertain to certain grade levels, etc.  Our specific goal for 6th grade Room Parents was to simply help communicate information out to families since there are not necessarily parties.  This will be especially helpful when we get closer to the end of the year and start to plan our 6th grade celebration.

Below you will find the contact information pdf for the 6th grade Room Parents.  If you have not done so already and would like to "opt in" to this communication, please email the Room Parent for your child's homeroom teacher (If there is not one listed, please email the switch teacher's Room Parent.  If there are more than one listed, please include both in your email.)  Please provide an email address that the Room Parent can use to contact you.  

If you have any questions, please email our Room Parent chair - Erica Gallagher at roomparent@agispta.org.

Thank you so much for your help as we try to help facilitate communication!

Cupcake Truck Event!

posted Oct 22, 2020, 12:32 PM by Web Coordinator AGIS PTA

AGIS Teacher and Staff Appreciation Cupcake Truck Event

Cupcake Clipart January - Cupcake Clipart Black And White , Free  Transparent Clipart - ClipartKey


Looking for a way to show your favorite AGIS teacher, office staffer

or administrator that you’re thinking of them?

Look no further!

 

On November 6th, the PTA is bringing the Dia Doce Cupcake Truck to AGIS to give out a gourmet cupcake to everyone who works at AGIS. We’d like to make the event even more special by sharing your ‘sweet notes’ of encouragement and appreciation for your favorite AGIS teachers, office staffers, and administrators.


A sweet treat and a sweet note for our sweet staff!

 

For a $7 donation, families may participate in our fundraiser by ‘sending’ a cupcake and personalized note to any AGIS teacher, office staffer, or administrator. Simply complete this form and PayPal payment for each treat/note you would like to send, and the PTA will deliver your special messages while Dia Doce delivers their special cupcakes! Please note that every AGIS staffer will receive one cupcake.  However, there is no limit to how many ‘sweet notes’ they can receive.


        How:  Families will fill out the Google Form.  The form will need to be filled out for each teacher or staff member                       they wish to send a note to.  Only one payment needs to be submitted.  

(Ex.  Two teachers + one office staffer + two Encore teachers = FIVE forms submitted and a single $35 payment submitted via Paypal) 

AGIS PTA Paypal account:  Paypal.me/AGISPTA


         When:  Families will have from October 23rd to November 4th to fill out the Google Form AND pay via Paypal.                          Due to the timing of this event, we will not be able to accept cash or check as payment.


 

All donations go towards purchasing cupcakes for the entire staff; additional proceeds to benefit the AGIS PTA.

 

Thank you for your sweet support of AGIS teachers and staff … and the AGIS PTA!

Box Tops UPDATE!

posted Oct 6, 2020, 11:50 AM by Web Coordinator AGIS PTA

Got Box Tops Clips? Here's what to do.

Even though Box Tops has gone digital, there are still some products out there that have unexpired traditional clips. If you see the traditional clip on the box, you can still get credit for those as long as they are not expired!


Box Tops for Education is opening up our fall submission process to ALL Box Tops supporters this year.  Follow the step-by-step instructions on their website to safely submit your clips so they count toward AGIS’s fall check.  You can also watch this video to learn more.


All Box Tops submissions must be postmarked by November 2 to be included in our next check. Only unexpired clips will be accepted, and our Coordinator will be notified as soon as your Box Tops are processed.


Thank you for your patience and continued support!

Room Parent Information 2020-2021

posted Sep 9, 2020, 8:28 AM by Web Coordinator AGIS PTA   [ updated Oct 29, 2020, 10:15 AM ]

PTA / Room Parent Info

Hello AGIS families!  We are looking to help our classroom teachers as they create a virtual community this year during online learning.  We are looking for parents who can serve as Room Parents to be the liaison for our teachers and families.  The Room Parents will work with the classroom teachers to determine their role.  Each teacher may have different needs, asks, etc.  Please coordinate your efforts with the teacher.                This may mean:

* Creating a class directory

* Helping to send information out to families

* Helping with virtual class parties

* Sharing information about PTA events, projects, etc.

 

Room Parents:  Please only take on this role if you are willing and able to be active in keeping the lines of communication open between the teacher and families.  We will be depending on you this year!  J  The PTA will occasionally send info directly to you to then share with families in your class.  This will include Teacher Appreciation events in the spring, any events we may need help “spreading the news” like our Fall Virtual Scholastic Book Fair, etc.  Our Room Parent chairperson, Erica Gallagher, will be your contact person if you have any questions or suggestions.  (roomparent@agispta.org)

 

**We understand that a couple or a few parents may also want to work together to fill this role.  On the Sign-up Genius, there will be spaces for up to two people for each teacher.  Please feel free to work with your teacher’s “switch class” Room Parent as well.

**Please note:  For this year only during online learning, we will need Room Parents for 3rd thru 6th grade classrooms.

 

Our hope is that it connects classroom communities more closely during this time of online learning.  If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to our Room Parent chairperson.  


Here is the UPDATED Sign-up Genius link: www.signupgenius.com/go/8050F4AADAF2DA2F94-agis1


 VERY IMPORTANT!!

When you sign up: please include your name, email address and student name in the comment section.  This is how your classroom teacher will reach out to you to set up how your role will look in their virtual classroom. 

 

Note:  Any information that is shared by the classroom teacher with the Room Parent is not to be shared and is considered confidential.  The AGIS PTA Room Parent Chairperson will have the contact info for the Room Parents so that she will be able to connect and share information.
