Paving the Way For Amelia Earhart

"...Dream big and accomplish big things."
Please join us in our effort to bring this life size bronze sculpture of Amelia Earhart to our campus. The Davis Family Foundation granted the Frank Bette Center for the Arts a $32,000 gift to commission a life size bronze sculpture of Amelia Earhart to donate to Earhart School. The sculpture, created by Jane deDecker, is complete and ready to be installed. We need additional funds to meet the requirements for a safe installation on a school campus.

You can be a part of this historic event by purchasing an engraved brick that will be used to line the path around the front of the school. A personalized brick is a wonderful way to honor your child's achievements at Amelia Earhart School. The cost of the brick is a $100. Your donation is tax deductible. This is your opportunity to be instrumental in the installation of the first public art on Bay Farm Island.

International Walk & Roll Day

Wednesday, 7 October 2015

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.
