Summer is Flying By and the Countdown to the First Day of School is On!
We hope you are having a great summer! The first day of school is August 31st so the countdown is on!
If you are new to Ingomar Elementary this year please register with the PTO Website so that you will receive the PTO weekly e-newsletters and have access to all the latest information, the online student directory, programs and events. If you are a returning family, please update your contact information so that your online directory information is up to date and you continue to receive the e-blasts. After classroom/teacher assignments are mailed you will need to update your information to include your child's teacher. Once again, the PTO will provide a new field day t-shirt to every student so please update your child's shirt size as part of your registration information.
NEW THIS YEAR!
We have a new yearbook company this year - Balfour - and the yearbook sales process will be different than prior years. In an effort to streamline yearbook sales and eliminate the need for parents to remember to order a yearbook, the cost of a hard-cover yearbook ($18) will be added your field trip activity fee in the Fall. Parents will have the option to OPT-OUT of a yearbook purchase when you pay your field trip activity fee. However, THERE WILL BE NO SEPARATE YEARBOOK SALE at any time during the school year and there will be NO EXTRA YEARBOOKS sold at the end of the year. **If you have multiple students enrolled at Ingomar and want to share one yearbook among siblings please include the yearbook for your oldest student and opt out of a yearbook for your younger students**
Don't forget to keep saving Boxtops
The Boxtops for Education program contribution to Ingomar makes up almost 10% of the PTO's annual budget. Please continue to clip and save boxtops over the summer. There will be a Fall collection date for Boxtops that will be included in the classroom collection tally for the year.
Check this out: BoxTops has new way to collect. Download the BoxTops App and scan your grocery receipt with your phone to earn BoxTops credits for our school.
