    Sharing Lunches Amazing Success
    We collected 341 lunches this week. Thank you to everyone who sent in a bag (or more than one bag because we have some superstars...Arimenta Family, we are looking at you this month!!). Mrs. Apostadero's class gets special recognition for collecting 42 lunches to share. That is amazing!!
    Coles SOUPer Bowl Kicks off on Monday, Jan 27th
    football_illustration.jpgWho will it be?  We'll find out today who will be moving on to the NFL Super Bowl (NFC: Packers or 49ers and AFC: Titans or Chiefs) on February 2nd after tonight's championship games. 
    THEN, the PTA "Souper" Bowl begins on January 27th.  Once the teams are finalized, children can bring in canned goods and place them in the corresponding bucket for the team they are rooting for in the NFL Super Bowl.  
    This is such a fun way to do good for our community!!!  All canned goods will be donated to our friends and neighbors in a nearby Salvation Army and food pantry.  Collection bins will be in the lobby starting Monday,  January 27th - January 31st!!
    Rutgers Basketball Game - January 25th
    cartoon-basketball.jpgIf you pre-ordered tickets for the Rutgers vs. Nebraska Men's Basketball game, then we will see you on Saturday, January 25th for the game, which starts at 2 pm!  Also, as a super special surprise, all families will be able to have one member of your family participate as part of the High Five Tunnel or as a National Anthem Buddy.  A note was on your tickets to indicate in which activity your family is scheduled to participate.
    PTA Prize Closet
    colorful_gifts.jpgWe sincerely thank those that have already donated their NEW or UNUSED toys and/or games.  If you have things to donate, you may either send your child in with your items or feel free to stop by the lobby and drop them off if its too much for your little one to carry.  Collection bins are under the display case until Wednesday, January 29th!  
    If you have any questions, concerns, or ideas, please feel free to contact me at JAColesPTAPresident@gmail.com

    Celebrate your child's birthday with a BIRTHDAY BOOK!

    Consider donating a book to our Coles library in honor of your child's birthday. A book plate will be placed in the front cover stating that the book is for your child.    Mrs. Giannacio will take a picture of him/her holding the book and post it on the Library bulletin board where it will remain until the end of the school year.  Also, your child will get to check the book out first!  

    Check out the Wish List put together by Mrs. Giannacio for you to choose from to celebrate your child's birthday!
