PEP Conference Canceled The Department of Education has recently informed us the 2020 PEP Conference has been canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
PTA Fun Night Due to the unprecedented situation with the COVID-19 virus, PTA’s Fun Night has been canceled and will not be rescheduled. We attempted to work out a possible reschedule date but with the next couple of months so unclear, we decided this was best. If you sent money to the school for tickets, we will be mailing it back too you soon. If you donated 2-Liter bottles of pop would like your pop back, please contact Central Elementary to schedule a time to pick them up. Otherwise, we will donate the remainder within the community. The cash for cakes money will be used to buy cupcakes for next year’s Fun Night! A huge thank you to everyone that donated and helped prepare for this event. If you have any questions, please send an email to email@example.com.
PTA Fundraisers Items ordered from the Believe Kids fundraiser will be available for pickup soon. We are working out delivery with the organization and will be giving more details as they are received. We have decided it is best to cancel the Spring Flower Fundraiser as well. However, the 4th Street Greenhouse has graciously offered to put together 75 flower pots and if you mention the Fairbury PTA when purchasing these specific pots, they will donate a portion of the sale to the Fairbury PTA! Thank you for your support throughout this school year! The Fairbury PTA
