Commerce Elementary PTA

Chairpersons Needed ASAP for 2014-2015 School Year

 VolunteerDear Commerce Families,

Commerce Elementary PTA sponsors several fun events as well as educational programs at our school every year.  In order to keep these events and programs going, we need volunteer help.

We are looking for people to chair the events/programs listed below, as well as fill Committee Head positions for certain events.

Please take a moment to look at what is listed here and consider becoming a Chairperson or Committee Head for one (or more), of these events/programs.  We have very detailed notes and instructions for you to follow if you choose to chair an event/program, and Event Coordinator who will work with you, so it is really quite easy to put together one of these programs/events!

Welcome Back PicnicWe have a Chair Person for this.  We are looking for one more person to co-chair this event.  Welcome our new incoming Commerce students and families, as well as our returning families for the new 2014-2015 school year!  Run and organize this fun and popular event.

Enrichment Programs Two Chair People are needed. Curriculum has already been created for this program, which is an optional program for children in grades 2 – 5.  Children enrolled learn about subjects from States and Capitals, to how to create their own business plan/product and how to market and sell that item.  We need at least two volunteers (for each class), to teach the curriculum for the above mentioned grade levels and handle the scheduling for teaching the class (if we have more volunteer teachers).  If we do not get enough volunteers or a chair person for this program, we will cancel it.

Talent Show – One Chair Person needed. Help Mrs. Bean plan the talent show, work with the children, help organize the auditions, etc.

Fall FairWe have one Chair Person for this.  We need two more Chair People to help.

  • Haunted Hallway Committee Head (plus 4 – 5 adult volunteers to set up hallway)
  • Carnival Games Committee Head (plus 15 – 16 adult volunteers to help run games, set up, clean up)
  • Prizes Committee Head (plus 2 – 3 volunteers to help organize and hand out prizes)
  • We are also in need of donations for our Silent Auction.

Showcase – We have a Chairperson for this, but would like 2 – 3 people to help her with decorating the PTA Bulletin Board, as well as help to come up with ideas and decorate the front Showcase each month.

Kids in Charge Two Chair People are needed.  We need 2 people for each class (3 – 5), to be the “go-to” people for that class.  You will help schedule the volunteer teachers, fill in when/if needed, and work with the Chairperson to make this program the best it can be for our students.

Bagel Day We have a Chairperson for this program.  We need 2 – 3 volunteers to help bag and distribute the bagels on Bagel Day once, sometimes twice, per month, and one person to help the Chairperson count money a couple days prior to Bagel Day.

Inkjet Cartridges One Chair Person is needed.  Collect the cartridges turned in by Commerce families and take them to either Office Depot or Staples to try to obtain discounts on paper/office supplies.

Reflections – One or Two Chair People are needed.  Help Commerce families/students learn how to submit artwork, poems, stories, music composition pieces, choreography, and more to the WLCS District Reflections contest.  Many of our talented students have received ribbons and some have gone on to the state level to win there, as well.

Spring Fling Two Chair People are needed.  Similar to the Welcome Back Picnic, you will plan and organize this fun event attended by many of our Commerce families.

We are always looking for volunteers to help work at events, as well.  Below is a list of some other PTA events scheduled thus far for our 2013 –2014 school year.  We hope to get more people involved next year helping out at our events.  We cannot do it without your help!

Please get in touch with PTA President, Tammi Landry-Gilder if you are interested in helping with any of the above listed programs/events.  Feel free to e-mail at tlandryg412@gmail.com, or call (248) 342-6980, or fill out the form below.

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!
