International Walk & Roll Day
People from around the world will be traveling to work and school on foot, bike or scooter. Please join us in celebrating this fun day at Earhart School. After walking or rolling to campus head over to the office area and share with us how you got to school. We will be collecting info on a huge data table so that the kids can see and celebrate all the healthy choices made!
ABC QUICK CHECK for bike safety:
♥ Air: Be sure you have enough air in your tires
♥ Brakes: Look to see that your brake pads are not worn
♥ Chain and Cranks: Pull on your cranks to see that they are not loose and look to see that the chain is not rusted and it is free of gunk
♥ Quick Release: Make sure all quick releases are closed
♥ Check: Take a slow brief ride to check that your bike is working properly
Book Fair Chair[s]
Earhart PTA is seeking volunteer[s] to chair the annual book fair. The current co-chairs Paul and Kimberly Skuta will run the fair this year with the future new chair[s], and they will also be available to assist the new chair[s] the following year.
The role of the chair person[s]:
♥ Schedule the fair with Scholastic
♥ Confirm the room at Earhart
♥ Determine hours of operation
♥ Recruit volunteers to work fair [parents and students]
♥ Set up
♥ Run fair
♥ Close down
♥ Submit financials to scholastic
This is a well-established model that the Skuta's have been using for the past 7 years, the new chair[s] will only need to tailor to fit their schedule. The annual Earhart Book Fair has been a long standing tradition at Earhart and is a great literacy event that raises funds for the school. 50 cents of every dollar spent at the fair comes back to the school in the form of books and educational material. Most importantly it is an event the kids and community look forward to every year, and a very rewarding volunteer opportunity!
Got concerns over the time commitment? The Skuta's are full time working parents and have been able to successfully run the fair since their oldest child was in 1st grade.
Please contact Kimberly Skuta via email if you have any questions or want more information about the volunteer role.
