Box Tops For Education
Reminder! We are collecting Box Tops for education coupons which are worth .10 per coupon. Valid Box Tops have the logo displayed below and must not be expired! Children who collect one a day for the month of September and bring it in to Mr. Maldonado will be awarded a prize at the end of the month for collecting Box Tops for the month! Please remind your parents, grandparents, and neighbors to save box tops for our school. Every box top is worth 1 cent.
The Dolphin Depot is an opportunity for students to purchase school supply items such as pencils, erasers, pens, markers, sharpeners, notepads, folders, and other "fun" items. Prices range from $0.05 to $3.00. The Dolphin Depot is open in the Multi-Purpose Room every Tuesday morning from 8:50am to 9:05am. Students should check in with their classroom teacher BEFORE heading to the Dolphin Depot to avoid being marked tardy.
Interested in volunteering at the Dolphin Depot? The job is simple (set-up, cleanup, assisting students in making purchases and counting money) and takes just about 45 minutes of your time on Tuesday mornings! Email email@example.com.
Membership in the Nancy Young PTA helps support dozens of programs and events that enrich the elementary school experience for our students, staff, and families. Paid membership in the NYE PTA also includes a free Dolphin Student Directory (published in November).

ROOM PARENT INFORMATION
Room parents are volunteer parents, grandparents, or other adult relatives who sign up to assist with classroom activities, such as room parties and Publishing Center sessions, on an as-needed basis. Room parents must be current PTA members. A "head room parent" coordinates volunteers for each classroom at Young. If you would like to volunteer as a room parent, please complete and return the document below to volunteer and help organize parties.
The Helping Hand Program was established in 1967 through combined efforts
of the Naperville Junior Woman’s Club, School District 203 & 204, and the Naperville Police Department. The purpose of the Helping Hand Program is to have adult assistance available in an emergency situation, such as a child being lost, frightened, injured, or ill. The police department encourages Helping Hand households to display the Helping Hand sign year-round as a crime deterrent similar to the Neighborhood Watch Program.
You can help support this program in two ways: (1) Tell your child about the Helping Hand Program and (2) Volunteer to be a Helping Hand household. Helping Hand is a volunteer program and can only succeed and be of benefit to our children if you are willing to help.
Information and materials for the Helping Hand Program will be coming home during the month of September.
Are you new to Art Awareness? Do you need a little help presenting in front of the class?
We now have several Powerpoint presentations to help get you started! We are working to get Powerpoint presentations on ALL of the artists, but only have few so far. These Powerpoints will be kept in the Artist Packets on a CD.
Download the document below to view procedures on how to conduct an Art Awareness presentation in the classroom.

Thank you for volunteering your time to promote art in your child's classroom.
Reflections is a national PTA-sponsored program that encourages students to explore their creativity in the arts. Students in all grades K-5 can submit one or more entries in any or all of the following categories: Visual Arts, Photography, Literature, Dance Choreography, Musical Composition, or Film/Video Production.
The theme for the 2016-2017 school year is:
“What Is Your Story?”
Below are documents and instructions that will help you as you work on your project. Please pay special attention to the Official Rules for the category in which your artist is participating. Depending on the category, some of the rules are very specific. The Nancy Young Elementary PTA is not allowed to advance any entries that do not fully comply with the National PTA Reflection Rules; therefore, entries not in compliance will not have the opportunity to advance to judging at the IPPC.
All entries must be submitted by October 17, 2016.
Questions? Contact Kelly Coyle at email@example.com
General Entry Form: Must be completely filled out and turned in with each entry
What’s Pictavo? It’s a great new FREE app that is being utilized to help the yearbook committee with school photos.
