Sign Up to provide a Meal for our Teachers during Teacher Conferences next week!‏

pot luck dinner
Teacher Conferences are next Wednesday and Thursday, 9/23 and 9/24.
This is a VERY long day for teachers…over 12 hours!
Each year, the PTO hosts Pot Luck dinners to alleviate some of the stress of the day for our teachers.  Please join us in providing a delicious dinner for our ACS Teachers!
If you would like to help provide something for either or both dates, please click the link below to register.  Any time spent shopping, preparing, cooking and delivering your items count towards your volunteer hours.  You may also record 30 minutes of volunteer time for each store bought item or group of items.  This is an easy and very rewarding way to earn volunteer time.
All food needs to be to ACS no later than 5:30pm on both days.
You may also drop it off in the Cafeteria during PM Carpool on 9/23 or 9/24.
We will have an area reserved in the back of the Cafeteria near the Kitchen for all Pot Luck items.  Please try to use disposable pans whenever possible, or be sure to label your items for return.  Please include recipes when you can. This helps when dealing with food allergies.
For any questions, please contact Kimberly Bockman at kimberly_atwood@yahoo.com.
Thank you for your continued support and dedication!
