Happy October, everyone! We had a successful Go Play Save fundraiser, and raised over $3,000 for our scholars and teachers! HUGE THANK YOU TO OUR FAMILIES! Let's keep
the FUNdraising going at our October Spirit Night! Join us at BigAir Trampoline Park, 6421 Hilburn Drive, Raleigh on Thursday 10/5 any time between 3-8pm. Just let them know you are there for Peak Charter Academy and your school will get a portion of the ticket sales!
We are more than a month into the school year, the routines are becoming more, well, routine, and parents everywhere are saying, "What do you mean, you have read all your books? ALL of them?" Maybe that is only at my house. Either way, never fear- the BOOK FAIR is here! Our biannual book fair will be held OCTOBER 30-NOVEMBER 4. Click [here] for volunteer opportunities to make this fair run smoothly! (just find the date you want to volunteer for and sign up!)
The Book Fair will have a special evening session for SPIRIT NIGHT on Thursday, November 2 from 5:30-7:30 pm. Principal Pond will be doing a presentation, then families are welcome to shop the Book Fair! You will also have the opportunity to purchase Pizza, Drinks and Candy at this event. (The Food will be for cash purchase, so please prepare accordingly!)
The Book Fair will also be running during Peak's Fall Family Festival! This is on Saturday, NOVEMBER 4 from 12:00-3:00 in the Gym! Enjoy the fall festival with your family and grab some great books to read at the same time. As always, all proceeds from the Book Fair go to student programs, schoolwide events, and teacher grants!
There will also be a raffle for curated baskets! Stop by the gym and purchase a ticket at spirit night on 11/2 and during the fall fest on 11/4 for a chance for some excellent items! Each grade will put together a different theme basket- from Gift Cards, to Game nights, to Gardening... there will be some fun things to bid on! I know what I am buying a ticket for!
As the weather cools off (or at least pretends to), our scholars often need a sweater in the morning, but by the time recess is here, its sweltering! Please remember to LABEL your scholar's jackets, sweaters, water bottles, and lunch boxes with their FIRST and LAST name! A ball-point pen works great on clothing labels, and a sharpie on hard surfaces such as water bottles. If you love convenience, you can always pick up a pack of Mabel's Labels (enter Peak Charter Academy as your school for a percentage of sales to be donated back to the school!). Also, if you are interested in helping out in the Lost and Found, please sign up on the events calendar!
