We need judges for our Art Reflections Competition; volunteer here! Judging will take place the week of November 8th in the following categories: literature and poetry, visual arts, music composition, dance choreography, and photography. We respectfully request that judges have some experience, however minimal, in the chosen field. Judging will take approximately 1 hour depending upon number of entries. Please email email@example.com with any questions or concerns.
Just a reminder that there are no after school classes this week due to conferences. We’ll see you next week!
Registration information coming next week!
Thanks to everyone who has registered for after school enrichment classes this session! Classes begin THIS WEEK, but we will leave registration open for some of our classes that have open seats. If you are looking for some fun outdoors and your student loves to run, RUNNING CLUB is still open for registration. We also have space available in Cartooniversity for your budding artist (now open to 2nd graders in addition to 3rd-5th), Pass the Potatoes, please if you want your student to practice and learn proper manners, and basketball if your child is interested in shooting hoops! Just go to the PTA website to register! https://benrushpta.org/pta-programs/after-school-classes-and-clubs/
Join us for our biweekly Math Challenge! This is a free program where all students and abilities can participate. Download the challenge at benrushpta.org. Eight random winners will be announced following each challenge. Prizes and awards will also be given at the end of the school year for continual participation.
The first math challenge, MC1, is now available as a “practice” challenge — no need to turn it in. Look for MC2 to be posted online this Friday, October 11.
We are looking for volunteers to help grade the challenges (sign up here).
Ben Rush Picture Day is coming up on Tuesday, October 8th. The PTA organizes volunteers to assist the photographers during the school day and we need about 6 volunteers across the day. We’ve split the volunteer session into a morning and afternoon session and need a couple more volunteers for the afternoon. If you can volunteer please visit our Sign-Up. Please email President@BenRushPTA.org with any questions. Thanks!
