AUCTION (April 27th) – IT’S COMING AND WE NEED HELP - GOAL $65,000 .
The auction is coming quickly and we have a LOT of work ahead of us! If you haven’t fulfilled your 3 hours yet now’s the perfect time. We are all very busy and volunteering for auction is not on the top of any of our lists. Unfortunately it takes a village to make Parmalee as great as it is. We are currently a small group of parents running the auction and we could use a lot more help! =) The Spring Auction and Carnival is more than our biggest fundraiser of the year, it is also our biggest community building event. There is no better feeling than seeing your kids playing with their friends near the end of the school year with everyone coming together to support a school that has given our children an award winning education.
This year we are using HandBid the mobile auction bidding app and website. Please go to https://events.handbid.com/auctions/parmalee-spring-auction-and-carnival/registration to register. More information on HandBid can be found on the Auction Page.

Other Committee Descriptions:
King Soopers Card Chair
The King Soopers card give 5 percent of what you spend to the PTA. As the chair all you have to do is send out a flyer (probably should be updated) in the fall. When the forms come back they should have $20 with them. You then add up all the cards and call into King Soopers and request the right number of cards for the school with $20 on each of them. It is usually takes a couple of days and you can pick them up wherever. You need to turn all the money into the PTA, they write you a check for King Soopers . Then you pick up the cards, bring them to school and deliver them. When we have earned enough money we will get a check from kings and you just turn that into the PTA.
It will really help the parents at PTA if you could take a moment and fill out the form below :-)
PTA builds bridges between homes and schools, integrating the efforts of parents with those of principals and teachers. When you get involved in PTA, the child who benefits the most is your own. You also are taking a major step toward improving your child’s school, your community, and your state and national education and health policies. PTA promotes the education, health, and safety of children and families.
Parmalee is a small school and we'd love all the help we can get to ensure our kids get the most out of their school experience! We are like a normal PTA... except WAY cooler! ;-)
The kids say it best!
VOLUNTEERS: We need every parent to volunteer at least 3 hours a year. I know, we are all so busy! It can be really hard to volunteer on top of a full time job and all the after school programs for the kids. The good news is that we have PLENTY of volunteer opportunities at all times and days! If you haven't signed a physical volunteer interest sheet at Back to School night or Boo-Hoo Breakfast please fill out the form below. Dads- please consider volunteering for Watch Dogs (the kids will love seeing you there!) and/or 'Man'-ual labor. PARMALEE PTA Volunteer Interest Form Committee Descriptions
