Back to School Playground Meet-up Thank You
A huge thank you to all of the families who came to light up the night and support our 5th grade fundraiser at last week’s Back to School Playground Meetup! It was so wonderful to see so many in the Estabrook community out and about enjoying each other’s company. Thank you to Katie Guilfoyle and Lysandra Richards for their work organizing the event, to Cindy Reuter and Kristin Simon for managing the Spiritwear sale, and to our amazing 5th graders for their hard work selling glowsticks at the event!
Help Support Estabrook Staff
In previous years each grade would have hosted a staff breakfast during the year. Last year, in lieu of those events, we collected donations to support the appreciation events for teachers and staff. All of the events were greatly loved by the staff!
Throughout this school year, the PTO would like to show our exceptional Estabrook staff just how thankful we are. Activities held last year or planned for this year include: Lunch on Teachers First Day of School and Conference Days, Ice Cream Truck, Bundt Cakes, Breakfast Sandwiches, and small gift cards.
We look forward to showing our teachers and staff how lucky we are to have them as part of our community. Contributions of any size are greatly appreciated. Donations can be made directly to the PTO via:
Venmo: @Estabrook-PTO or Paypal: paypal.me/estabrookpto
Please add “Staff Appreciation” in the Notes Section when submitting your donation via Venmo or PayPal
METCO Family Friends
The Estabrook PTO connects Estabrook students who live in Boston with Estabrook students who live in Lexington for monthly Friday afternoon play dates hosted by the Lexington families. Participating in the Family Friends program is a great way to help all students build meaningful connections with their peers outside of the school day. If you would like to get involved with the program or have questions, please email us at email@example.com.
