Last year, our PTA put $50,000 back into our school in the form of events, learning experiences, technology, books, educational tools and support for programs to encourage our children to grow and become strong and independent. It takes lots of volunteers to support these efforts.
What are your plans for the half day on September 18th? We've got something for you to do!

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! ...
