The Apollo PTA fall book fair is coming up on Dec 9-13. 
 
We need your help to remain open for all classes, recesses, after school and during the family Winter Event.  Please consider signing up for a shift or two so we can keep this fun event open for our excited students. No experience is necessary and it is easy to be a volunteer for the book fair; click HERE 
 
We are also excited to be using eWallet for student purchases.  This is a great option for kids to pay without bringing cash to school.  It is safe, secure and free to set up online.  You set a spending limit and any remaining funds will be released back to your credit card.  As a bonus, we are offering a limited supply reusable drawstring bag for any book fair eWallet purchases.  To set up your account or learn more about eWallet follow this link.  

It’s Time for Winter Festival!

Join us for family dinner as well as Bingo and Carnival Games on Friday, December 13th from 6-8 in the MPR. There will be pizza, salad, prizes and lots of fun, all sponsored by the Apollo PTA. Make sure to stop by the library and checkout the Artic Adventure Book Fair happening from 5:30-7:30!

This event is “Powered by Dad’s”; we are looking for Dads to volunteer to setup, serve food, and cleanup. If you are interested please email events@apollopta.org or visit https://m.signupgenius.com/#!/showSignUp/30e0a4ea4aa23a7fd0-winter and let us know how you can help.
