El Morro PTA is hosting a Colonial Days Crafting Bee from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 14th.

We need parent volunteers to assist with classroom craft and village craft pre-assembly work! This includes bead assembly, corn husk doll making, fabric cutting, and more! (We even have volunteer station “leads” who can show you the ropes if you’ve never been to a Colonial Days Crafting Bee!)

Show up for an hour or the whole day! Supplies and refreshments will be provided.

Our annual Colonial Days will take place November 24th and 25th in our multipurpose room, which will be turned into a Colonial Village complete with crafts and tasks common in Colonial times for the students to enjoy. We still need eager and willing volunteers! Go to our volunteer page and click on the volunteer buttons to sign up for one of our Colonial Days workstations or to help with set up or tear down.

Thanks to ALL who donated your time at the Crafting Bee last Friday. We really appreciate you! There is one more opportunity to donate your helping hands at our 2nd Crafting Bee this Friday November 14th, from 10am-2pm. There will be “crafting leads” there to show you what to do. We will provide the supplies & refreshments! Come for an hour or come all day! Colonial Days cannot be a success without your help!
We are inviting YOU to come to our PTA Meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 18th at 9:15am in the MPR! There are so many reasons to come to this informative meeting! Some of the topics that will be discussed & presented include the following:
  • Common Core- Assistant Superintendent Darlene Messinger will present the District’s Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) for implementing California’s Common Core Standards into our classrooms.
  • STEM- Mrs. Wong & Ms. Beauchemin will present a new opportunity to introduce Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math into our curriculum.
  • Mrs. Finnerty and Mrs. Bochenek will provide their monthly report on what is currently being taught at each grade level at El Morro.
  • Refreshments and Childcare will be provided!

El Morro’s Colonial Days Crafting Bee is on Friday Nov. 7th & Friday Nov. 14th from 10am – 2pm.

We need parent volunteers to assist with bead assembly, corn husk doll making, fabric cutting, and more. We will have crafting “leads” there to show you what to do. Many hands make light work.

Come in for an hour or all day! We appreciate your time and effort.

Supplies and refreshments will be provided.

  3. Volunteer! Pick your event
    El Morro PTA knows that one of the universal concerns for new parent volunteers is time commitment and if it will be too much. That’s why we’ve built in flexible and easy sign up schedules for almost every event hosted at El Morro. Volunteering has never been easier! You can sign up for whatever works best for you. We know that people have different styles and abilities and we at El Morro PTA appreciate everyone’s help. We’re so glad you’re here!
