Our Innisbrook GIft Wrap and Goodies PTO fundraiser is in full swing! We have fallen a bit short of our goal of $20,000, so we have extended the sale another week. Please take a moment and look at everything that Innisbrook has to offer – it’s not just gift wrap anymore!
Your child may have shared with you that there are prizes for the top three classes who have the most class participation in this fundraiser. Participation is either selling at least 1 Innisbrook item or making a donation directly to the PTO without selling anything. It’s that easy! All checks – either direct donations or from sales of the Innisbrook items – should be made payable to MONTROSE PTO.
As a reminder, out of town family members can order online and have items shipped directly to their home, while the student gets credit for the orders.
Thank you in advance for your support of this fundraiser. If you have any questions about Innisbrook, please contact Kelly Salmon at 614-554-6557 or email@example.com.
Each year the PTO likes to sponsor an Artists In Schools program. This year it is the Inside Out Project and the theme is Play.
Montrose art teacher, Emily Reiser, and parent volunteer, Stacey Seleen, have contracted with the Inside Out project to produce large scale 36″ x 53″ posters of student and staff portraits that will hang on the exterior walls of the gym, facing the newly installed play structures on the Montrose Playground.
Students were sent home the Inside Out Project information, a permission slip and asked to consider donating an optional $20 towards the project, to cover printing expenses. No one was turned down and everyone that wanted to participate is included.
Montrose parent and local professional photographer, Mark Steele, volunteered and took the up close portraits of subjects making funny and playful faces. The photos are aimed at showing the community how powerful the simple act of play is and how it is an integral part of learning.
The project was approved by the Bexley Board of Education and The City of Bexley over the summer. Stay tuned as the Inside Out Project and Montrose Group Action: Play is installed this fall.
