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!

Hello Commerce Families! We hope everyone had a great weekend. A couple notes for the week:

-During the Book Fair, students are encouraged to participate in our All for Books fundraiser with a twist! Students are asked to donate their Book Fair change to purchase more books for our library. This year we have 2 jars, a fairy and a wizard jar. If we reach our goal of $800 Ms. Carlin will dress up as a fairy or a wizard – whichever jar has the most money!

-Our pavilion picnic table fundraiser is 75% to our goal and we need your support! Teachers and students alike have greatly enjoyed our new pavilion! We need to raise more funds to finish paying for it! Please consider supporting this project with a donation of any size.
Supporters will be recognized with a permanent sign at the pavilion. For information, contact Shayna Levin

-Missing a sock, hat or glove? The lost and found is full of sad and lonely articles of clothing. Please stop by and see if something belongs to your student(s).

-Reminder that Thursday is a half day for parent-teacher conferences. Dismissal is at 11:09am. (The book fair will be open!)

Have a great week!
