Box Tops For Education

Our beginning of the year Box Tops rally has begun. Your children may have noticed a collection bag for Box Tops in their classrooms. We would love to fill those up every week. I will be keeping a weekly chart of progress for each classroom which will be displayed in the main school building. Preschool will have an extra chart in their classroom. Have a scavenger hunt at home to find those little emblems/coupons to clip. Ask neighbors, friends and relatives. Check at the office. Would they be willing to have a collection box placed there? Each Box Top is worth $.10 and they add up. Also, go to btfe.com for more information, fun games that earn free e-Box Tops and the Box Tops marketplace where online orders earn e-Box Tops for Pilgrim. It really adds up! The winning classroom will have Pizza with the Pastors and I will take the teacher out to eat that day! Thanks for supporting your school!  To learn more at Boxtops For Education. click here.

All parents are needed to assist with this project.

The sale usually runs from 7:00 am - 1:00 pm on a Saturday morning. The effort of coordinating this event is usually split between two co-coordinators, one for preparation, sorting, and pricing during the week leading up to the event, and one for the day of the event.

Approximately 15 volunteers are needed and two co-chairs are needed from among the volunteers.

Traffic Duty Coordinator/Traffic Duty Shift

Solicit and coordinate parent volunteers for Monday - Friday morning traffic coverage as well as back-up volunteers for each day.  Upon completion, provide primary volunteers with a daily schedule indicating who their back-ups are with telephone numbers.  One volunteer needed as coordinator.

Volunteer must arrive between 7:50 am - 8:00 am and is free to go as soon as the last morning bell rings. Volunteers ensure children/parents enter the school building safely by obeying the established guidelines such as walking on the south side of the cones and not parking in the parking spaces immediately to the West of the school building.

Volunteers must be comfortable approaching students/parents to correct situations. Volunteers are responsible for covering their shifts.  10 volunteers needed in order to serve as back ups or to allow for rotating shifts.
Scrappy the Mascot

We are looking for individuals to serve as our mascot for PTO activities.  Scrappy the Pilgrim Panther mascot is visible at home games, special events held at Pilgrim, and tournaments held at ALA.  We need the individuals who serve in this capacity to conduct themselves appropriately and help ensure the mascot costume is not damaged, since it is school property.  Volunteers will be chosen on a rotation basis, schedule availability, or desire to serve.  We are looking for mainly adults to serve, but will consider 7th grade and older students.  The students who are interested will need the approval of their teacher and the PTO board.  Approximately 5 volunteers are needed.
