Attention Incoming Kindergarten Parents!

Do you have a Kindergartner starting school in the Fall?  It is an exciting time, though full of unknowns for both parents and students. As Apollo PTA Parents, we are here to answer your questions while your Kindergartener get to know their new peers!

Please join us for our summer play date series called Kindergarten Connect.  It is the ideal opportunity to obtain vital information and contacts before the first day of school and also allows your child to socialize with other kids their age.

There are two play dates scheduled:

  • Thursday, July 16th, from 10:30-11:30 am in the Apollo library
  • Monday, August 24th, from 5:30-7 pm at the Kindergarten Playground in front of the school (to the right of the main entrance) 

You are encouraged to participate in either or both--come and go, just drop by or stay and play!

Does your company offer a corporate match program for nonprofit organizations?

Matching gifts are typically overlooked.   In 2012, The Chronicle of Philanthropy released a report entitled “How America’s Biggest Companies Give.” Two of the top 5 matching companies are right here in our community: Boeing and Microsoft. In fact, 65% of Microsoft employees request matching company contributions from their employer. Does your company have a matching gift program? If so, now is a great time to submit your Apollo PTA donations for matching.

Did you know that many employers will match your time, too? Apollo PTA has received over $7500 in contributions from our school family documenting and submitting their volunteer hours to their employer for matching this school year alone! What a great way to give back to our school AND have your employer support your child’s school.
