Diversity Day at Commerce Elementary

Our Diversity Committee and wonderful parent volunteers have been hard at work organizing our Diversity Day celebration.  Diversity Day on Friday, December 20th is a special event that celebrates the diversity in our community.  Many parent volunteers from our community will be joining us to share traditions from around the world.  Our children are growing up in a world that is much more connected through technology and so it is important that we learn to value and respect our differences and similarities.  We are excited about everything we will learn on Diversity Day!  Thank you to all the parent volunteers who make this day possible and to our Diversity Committee for all their planning and hard work.

A BIG thanks goes to our chairs for this year’s first Book Fair. Thank you Bridget Young, and Tracie Duclos. Also, thanks to all of our Commerce families for shopping the fair. We literally ran out of popular titles on the first day! Along with earning money for our school, this event is a great real-world consumer experience for our students, helping them understand prices, budgets, counting money and receiving change. Thank you to our volunteers for helping us make this event run smoothly.


Another BIG thanks goes to our chairs for our Holiday Craft Night and Gift Basket Raffle – thank you Josie Tiemann and Jillian Moutafis. So many students and siblings came to make adorable gifts for friends and family and to win the giant gift baskets we filled with your donations. Thanks to the volunteers who helped the kids make and wrap their crafts!

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.

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!
