Posted on: May 18, 2022
Hello Bates Families,
At last night’s PTO meeting we discussed upcoming events like field day, the showcase, the book fair, and more!
Here are highlights (watch for more in the upcoming newsletters as always):
 Bates Showcase in May 
Tuesday May 31st from 5:30-7pm
rain date Thursday June 2nd
DrumatiX will be performing at 5:45pm! They are a “Tap Dance and Creative Percussion Company” and we know it’s something no one will want to miss! In addition to the performance, many classrooms will be open and there will be an opportunity to shop the book fair in the library!
 ☀ Field Days in June ☀
Mon. 6th is Pre-k & K
Tues. 7th is 1 + 2nd grade
Wed. 8th is 3rd + 4th grade
Thurs. 9th ( Rain day) 
Friday 10th is 5th grade (5th grade field day rain date is Monday June 13th) 
PTO will be providing bounce houses and ice pops!! Water too — but please make sure your child still brings their own bottle. Parents are welcome to watch from the side of McGlew Park OR if you would like to volunteer for field day and interact with the kids (Prek-4th only), please go into the office and ask to fill out a CORI form ASAP if you don’t already have one.
Then email us and we’ll assign you a volunteer spot! ☀ 
If you are not CORI’d you can not participate.
Thank you for understanding and we hope to see lots of you there!!
 Join the PTO Every year, at the June meeting, we take nominations and vote on new executive members of the PTO board. In a “perfect PTO world” we’d have each position filled with enough additional members to create sub-committees for events, and support our kid’s education and enrichment at Bates even further. This year we ran with a pretty small crew and the cultural arts position remained vacant. In addition to each of our parental duties – we all have “day jobs” too, so we understand how difficult it is to find time for such things.
We truly appreciate every single person who has volunteered this year making each event a success! If you DO think you’d like to be involved in a bigger role, please reach out before the June 14th meeting for more info.
Thank you so much!!
your team is:
President – Amber Shomo
VP – Theresa Moutafis
Treasurer – Angel Nelson
Fundraising – Lindsay Wood
Secretary – Erin Provensal
