“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.”
― Edith Sitwell
Winter is fast upon us and the holiday season is approaching. It’s that time of year when most people are caught in a frenzy of holiday parties, shopping and early morning wakeups to ensure that school has not been cancelled due to snow. The Bolton PTA’s volunteers are like elves, busy working and planning some great winter events and offerings for our students.
First, we have our Holiday Shoppe scheduled for December 13th, 14th and 17th. BCS students will have an opportunity to purchase small, inexpensive gifts for family and friends during this time. Last year, many parents were “surprised” with magnets, picture frames, mugs and all sorts of fun items from their children! This event is not a fundraiser….it is meant to be a fun activity for those children who choose to participate.
Our annual Ice Cream Social and Camp Fair is scheduled for February 13th. Join us for ice cream sundaes scooped by some of Bolton’s parents, teachers and administrators! We know that childcare is definitely an issue for many families during the summer. Are you looking for something fun for the kiddos to do this summer? After ice cream, wander down the hall and check out some of the great camps that are in the area. Booths will be set up with information and camp representatives to answer any questions that you may have.
Of course, winter also means Variety Show practice for the little actors and actresses here in Bolton! Mrs. Romkey and all of our amazing coaches will be running the children through many practices, preparing for the “big event”, which is scheduled for April 5th and 6th.
This is just a small sample of what we will be working on this winter. I would like to take a moment to thank the parents, teachers and volunteers for all of their time and hard work, helping the Bolton PTA to provide such wonderful opportunities to our children. They are our partners and together we are making a difference in the lives of our most treasured gifts, our children.
The Bolton PTA wishes you a very happy holiday season. We hope that you are able to share some quiet time with your family and friends during this busy season and look forward to working with you in 2013.
With warm regards,
Bolton PTA President
