The Chipotle Night was a success! Because of your support, we earned over $300, which is similar to past Chipotle Nights. Thank you!

Creative, Safe, and Fun!

Board and Brush is a local shop specializing in fun, decorative signs. They have set up a special fundraiser for us that allows us to do something special together while apart.

They have even created a unique piece of art for Neely! Check it out!

How to join the fundraiser: Visit the Board and Brush site, find art you love, reserve your spot, and then pick up your kit at Board and Brush in downtown Gilbert on September 26th from 9am-12pm. The PTO will be there saying hi and handing out the kits safely.

There are few things you will need to know:

  • Paint is NOT included. There are a lot of legal and logistical reasons for this, but we are pretty sure everyone has some paint at home they can use for their projects.
    • Bonus – if it’s your paint, it probably matches your decor really well!
  • You must order by September 22 at 5pm.
  • Only orders placed at the link below will count towards our fundraiser. You will checkout and pay on Board and Brush’s website.
  • All of the @Home Kits include a design stencil, pre-stained wood board, foam paint brushes, plastic paint cups, sandpaper, cloth, a color mixing guide, and instructions.

Some ideas to make it a social event:

  • Plan your pick up time so you can wave and chat from your cars with your friends.
  • Choose the same design as your friend and do it together over video chat.
  • Pick an inspirational sign and drop off the completed one at a friend’s house to encourage them. 

We hope you will join us in supporting our school and a local business!

ORDER ONLINE

Then pick up your kit at Board and Brush in downtown Gilbert on September 26th from 9am-12pm

Even more fun: Post your completed art on our Facebook page by October 12th at 5pm. If enough art is purchased, we will use the photos to randomly draw a winner who will receive a gift certificate to Board and Brush!

The PTO has a Google Meet account. Would you be interested in attending a video meeting where we work on our art together? Email us if you want to join!

Now accepting online and app orders for take-out! You will need the code: 6CYRL28 when you place the order.

Instructions for how to order online and have it count for our fundraiser are below.

The best place to start is the district website. We know only what they have published, so if you have questions, please refer to the district communications for answers.

However, we will be consolidating information here as much as we can. We will also be posting updates via Facebook, so be sure to follow our page.

GILBERT SCHOOLS WEBSITE

Please check your email. Teachers and staff have been sending updates about materials that will be available to students starting March 30th. Apps/Websites you may need: Google Classroom, Webex, Google Sites, Khan Academy, and Read Theory.

Make sure you know your child’s email (first initial middle initial first 6 of last [email protected]) and password (gps first initial last 4 of student id). So if your kid is John Michael Thompson and his student ID is 67099834, his log in is [email protected] Google will redirect you to a grey screen and ask for their shortname jmthomp with a password of gpsj9834.

MEALS

Anyone under 18 may pick up breakfast and lunch M-F at certain locations.  The list of schools distributing meals is on the district website.

 

MEALS

HELP

The district has put in place distance learning resources for all students. Please have your child check their email and Google Classroom (or other websites as directed) daily for updates. At this point, any work your child completes will only improve their grade so don’t miss out.

Enrichment

You may continue to use the enrichment resources, but campuses have all created curriculum for their students.

 

ENRICHMENT

PTO STuff

We will be cancelling all future PTO events. We are saddened to miss out on spending time with our wonderful families, but it is what’s best for the community. We are thankful for your support over the first 3 quarters of the year. We anticipate being able to purchase AR for our campus like we have in previous years, although we will have to postpone the purchase of several other items we wanted to update.

Harkins Summer Movie Fun

Print a Paper Form

 

Orders are filled on a first come, first served basis, so we will be placing orders weekly. Use the button above to print a paper form. Forms were also given to the teachers to send home Friday. No online orders will be accepted. Make sure you clearly mark your first and second choices for both theater and day of week. Parent and child tickets are the same price.

Tickets are $7 per person.

 

If you haven’t attended the Summer Movie Program at Harkins before, here’s a little more about it:

  • All movies start at 9:45am.
  • One movie is shown each week. The movies are shown in the order listed above going across the top, then down to the second row (Sing is the first movie and Batman is the last movie).
  • Your ticket is valid for guaranteed entry at your theater on your day only. You can attend on a different day if there are spaces available when you show up to the theater (there is usually room).
  • You can give your tickets to someone else if you can’t attend one week.
  • All “rooms” in a theater are showing the same movie, so pick whichever room you like.
  • The showings are very kid friendly, so little kids are ok to bring. 
  • Everyone 3 years and older needs a ticket.  Seats are only guaranteed for ticket holders so children 2 and under may need to sit on a parent’s lap.
  • Parents must stay with kids.
  • No adults without children will be admitted, so Grandma must enter with your family if she wants to come. 
  • You can use your Harkins Loyalty Cups during the Summer Movie.
  • Your tickets will come home in an envelope. Please put them in a safe place as lost tickets cannot be replaced. 

ORDERS ARE DUE MARCH 27th AT 3pm.

NO LATE ORDERS WILL BE ACCEPTED.

RETURN YOUR FORM EARLY FOR THE BEST THEATER AND DAY SELECTION.

What can I do there?

We fill the field with all kinds of attractions – bouncy houses, mazes, interactive inflatable games, and more! There is even a petting zoo with all kinds of sweet animals to enjoy. 

Then we take over the basketball courts and have all of the traditional carnival game booths, including prizes! We have a DJ spinning awesome tunes, face painting, and more to keep you entertained all night.

Everyone, ages 4-18, will need a wristband to enjoy the activities.  Kids 3 and under are free.

We know this can add up fast, so we only charge for the first 3 children in a family. Additional wristbands for children beyond those 3 are complimentary. Only children living in the same household can receive complimentary wristbands. Please honor this limit so that we may continue to offer it to our families in the future.

Be sure to check out the night’s competition: Which teacher will get to Kiss the Alpaca!?! Vote for your favorite staff member with your carnival tickets and the one with the most votes will pucker up for a big smooch!
