Classroom Parties

Dear Alma Schrader Families,
Welcome Back! As in the past, Alma Schrader has 3 class parties – Fall Festival
(Wednesday, Oct. 31), Christmas (Thursday, Dec. 20) and Valentine’s Day
(Thursday, Feb. 14). Parents, as always, will be welcome to come and join their
children during the party time. The PTO Party Coordinators will be providing the
supplies and snacks for each party. We are asking for a $5 fee per child to cover
the expenses for the year. You may make that payment at Back to School night
on Tuesday, August 14 by cash, check, Square payment or Venmo. Our Venmo ID
is Alma Schrader PTO—please note “party fund” if paying by Venmo. If you are
unable to make your $5 payment on Back to School Night, please send the
payment labeled ‘Party Fund’ to school with your child by the end of August.
At Back to School Night, parents will have an opportunity to sign up to help with
coordination and games. Again this year, we are asking one parent in each
classroom to be the Classroom Party Coordinator. This person will contact
parents who signed up to lead games in their assigned classroom prior to each of
the three parties as a reminder. During the parties, they will be present to help
pass out the provided snacks and drinks, and as a liaison between the teacher,
parents leading games and the PTO Party Coordinators. A sign-up sheet will be
available in each classroom.
Our kids enjoy the parties and always look forward to them. Should you have any
questions, please contact Amy Ogles (, Lisa Hammond
( or Charity Roberts (
Thank you so much, and we look forward to a great year!
Amy Ogles, Lisa Hammond, & Charity Roberts
