Coming Up: Gus's Marketplace! 

Gus's Marketplace continues to evolve this year! We've listened to your feedback and have some exciting updates to share.

  • We've moved the event to November 2 to give everyone some time to settle into the school year and prep inventory for their booth.
  • Gus's Marketplace will focus primarily on crafters and vendors, no more rummage sale.
  • Kids FunZone will have childcare for shoppers!
  • Shopping hours have been extended this year, we'll allow crafters and vendors to setup the night before.
  • Check back for mini-photo sessions available as well!
For more information, check out the event page on our Facebook page at (linked) Alice Gustafson Elementary School PTO!

FUNDRAISING GOAL ACHIEVED - THANK YOU!

Thanks for all the amazing support during our first fundraiser of the year! We have met our first goal and had a great time sliming Mr Park today. We hope each of your classes enjoyed the program, and we'd love to hear which character, activity or challenge was your student's favorite?! We particularly loved seeing all the team flags out there today!

Pledging for the Fun Run will remain open through next week to allow for any new donations, and also to allow anyone who pledged per lap to complete their payments. If for any reason you had a student who couldn't participate today, anyone who pledged per lap for them will receive notification and have the opportunity to decline their donation or to donate per lap based on the school average. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to waysandmeans@agspto.org!

*************************************
A special thanks to all our fantastic volunteers who turned out today. Our kiddos were well hydrated and laps were quickly marked. Your generosity with your time and effort is greatly appreciated!

NOTE:

The school has asked that everyone coming sign in at the office and receive the appropriate visitor badge. So even if you're not volunteering and just coming to watch, please add your name to the sign up genius link so that Mrs. Cronin can prepare name tags in advance. This will also cut back on your wait time and get you out on the course faster!
