Our Welcome Committee helped parents say goodbye to their kindergartners on their first day of school with a Tea & Tissue!
HANNAFORD FREE-TO-YOU FUNDRAISER: The first Hannaford load is this Wednesday, 9/18, by 12pm. A Hannaford form was sent in the PTO Welcome Back Packet a week ago, but if it was lost among the mass of papers, you can print one here: HGC Form. For those new to the Hannaford Gift Card program, it is a PTO fundraiser in which you buy a Hannaford gift card, receive the full amount, and the PTO receives 5% of your gift card amount. Easy and free to you!
Make It Take It Craft Fair
CALLING ALL CREATIVE TYPES: We are looking for volunteers to help with our annual Make-It Take-It Craft Fair, which is Sunday, November 17, 11am – 2pm. If you’d like to help children put together a craft, supply your own craft idea, help with the bake sale, donate baked goods, set up, or clean up, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SPIRITWEAR: You can celebrate your favorite Yarmouth team with shirts, sweatshirts, sweatpants, hats, and more by ordering at https://www.pandpscreenprinting.com/yarmouth. Sale runs through Sept 30.
STAFF APPRECIATION: Help us celebrate our teachers with something delicious! Be on the lookout soon for sign-up links to provide staff with a breakfast / luncheon in mid October.
BOX TOPS IS GOING DIGITAL: Heads up that you can still clip boxes for now, but Box Tops is going digital! All you have to do is download the free app and scan your store receipt within two weeks of purchase. When selecting the school to earn Box Tops points, please select Yarmouth Elementary School; money earned will go to the PTO. The PTO earns $0.10 per Box Top. This adds up! Help the PTO reach its annual goal of $1500. Your student can put the traditional labels in the Box Tops collection box in the office. Traditional Box Tops will still be honored until they expire. For the rest of 2019, you can earn double through traditional clipping and scanning your receipt.

Boon Supply Sale: The Boon Supply sale is in place of our traditional Close Buy sale, which is not operational this year. We hope you’ll find Boon products a great replacement and perfect to give as gifts or keep for yourself. Delivery will be in time for the holidays, and better yet, 40% of your purchase goes directly to Yarmouth K-8 PTO!
Be on the lookout for catalogs coming home with your HMS, YES, and Rowe School students in the next couple weeks. More information to come!
Sale runs October 2 – October 23.
