4th Annual ER Rocket Read! March 2 – March 10, 2017

In observance of the upcoming 20th Annual National Read Across America Day,
Elliott Ranch will be celebrating by launching its ROCKET READ!! As always this is a
great way to encourage your child to read while helping to raise money for our school!
You can sponsor your child per book or you can donate a flat amount.
This is a great way to encourage our students to become great readers and to find the
magic waiting for us in books! The top three readers in each grade level will receive a
prize and special recognition at a Friday assembly. The class that reads the most
minutes will have a donut party!
Any students raising $20.00 or more will be able to get out of class and enjoy the
movie, The Lorax, with popcorn and a drink. We will be holding a drawing for tickets to
Six Flags for those students who raise $40.00 or more, each additional $10 after that
will earn your child an extra chance in the drawing. The top earning class will also win a
donut party. Top individual earners will get to help turn Mr. MacNeill into an ice-cream
Sponsor forms and reading logs need to be turned in to your child’s teacher by Friday,
March 10th.
Please make sure your child is supervised if going door to door for sponsors, and that
they are reading appropriate books for their age levels.
To help us promote Rocket Read we have special dress up days:
Monday, March 6th – Favorite color / Free Dress Day
Tuesday, March 7th – What do you want to be when you grow up day

Let’s keep the ER PTO Membership Drive going strong as we “Run” towards 100%!

A huge thanks for all the families and friends who have joined the Elliott Ranch PTO!

Your efforts with your time volunteering, your financial support, and just being involved at ER is what makes our school great.  Without all the parent and family involvement, our school would not be as excellent a place for our children learn and grow.

Each year the funds that the ER PTO raises goes to numerous programs that directly improve the experience of your child.  For example, the Library , Art Docent , Project Lead the Way (PLTW) STEM program, Harvest Dance, Spring Fling, Ice Cream Social are just to name a few of the many programs that the PTO directly supports.  This year , the PTO hopes to raise enough to provide Elliott Ranch with a new running track.  Many of you have seen the condition of our current “track” and have expressed concerns over safety for our children when they are at P.E. and recess.  If we could build a new track, it would coincide with our new APEX Fun Run program scheduled for this October and would serve ER students well for years to come.

Please join us if you haven’t already, to make Elliott Ranch Elementary School, the model that all other schools in not only Elk Grove, but the entire country strive to become.

Here’s our recognition board in the MP room, please fill our the membership form below and return it along with cash, check, or online payment to your child’s teacher, the front office staff, or administrator to be recognized on the board this year!

Thank You so much and GO ER ROCKETS!
