PJammin for Kids with Cancer Day!

Our Commerce Kids have been working hard on their “chore hearts” to help raise money for children with leukemia.  In honor our students’ kindness and generosity, Friday, November 15th will be a PJammin’ for Kids with Cancer Day!  Your child can wear their (school appropriate) PJs on this date.  This would also be a great day to bring in “chore hearts” if you haven’t already done so.  The due date for all “chore hearts” is Monday, November 18th.

Whats Happening on Facebook

One of our great PTA fundraisers throughout the year is Bagel Days! Below is a schedule of the days bagels will be distributed along with some frequently asked questions.

September 27
October 18
November 29
December 6
January 24
February 28
March 28
April 18
May 30
June 6

1. What if my child isn't there for bagel day? Their bagel will be saved and given to them the next time they are there. Unfortunately we don't have a way to keep it fresh for too long and we apologize in advance about that.

2. Do these come with cream cheese? No.

3. Are these nut free? As we get these bagels from a third party (Detroit Bagel), we cannot guarantee they don't come in contact with nuts.

4. What time will my child receive their bagel? Bagels are delivered and distributed to classrooms in the morning but we are unable to guarantee a specific time each classroom will receive their bagels or what time teachers will pass them out. We suggest having bagels be an extra snack rather than counting on them being the only snack of the day.

You have until 9/14 to sign up for this year's Bagel Days. All bagel days must be prepaid for the year. Visit our website at www.commerceelementarypta.com/pta-membership to sign up. If you have additional questions, let us know!
