Lost and Found
If your child is missing a coat, gloves, hat, water bottle, etc., please call the office at 317-733-2645 and we’ll check to see if we have it (parents aren’t allowed in the school to look).
We're donating any unclaimed items after school on Friday, January 15th.
Please remember to put your child's name on all their belongings so we can get them back to you if they become lost. Thank you!
Weekly News and Updates from your PTO
Welcome back TME families! We hope you all had a safe and wonderful break. Your PTO is getting ready to start planning our spring Carnival. If you are interested in helping, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. More information will come in the months to follow. Have a great weekend!
Other Ways to Help Our School
Thank you for turning in your Box Tops coupons! As you know, Box Tops is going digital. Here is a quick video to show you how to start submitting your receipts through the Box Top app. It is very simple and quick, and it is something I have gotten into the habit of doing after each trip to buy groceries. It doesn't matter where you shop (Meijer, Kroger, Target, Wal-Mart, etc.) as long as they sell participating products. Download the app, and get started today!
Use AmazonSmile When You Shop to Earn Money for TME
AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know and already use. Same products, same prices, same service. However, when using the smile.amazon.com link, Amazon will donate .5% of the price of your eligible purchases to Towne Meadow. To set up your account, simply go to smile.amazon.com and select TOWNE MEADOW PTO in the "pick your charitable organization" box. Be sure to bookmark the smile.amazon.com site and use it in place of the regular Amazon website every time you make an Amazon purchase.
Shop at Kroger and earn money for TME
Kroger - Enroll your Kroger plus card online at www.krogercommunityrewards.com and the store gives a percent of the total spent to Towne Meadow. You can get a Kroger plus card at the store or register for a digital card online at the above web address. Once you create an online account, follow the instructions to register your card. You will be able to select “enroll” under the community rewards section in your account information. You can type in Towne Meadow or use the TME code: DD456
Any Coca-Cola beverage that has a product code under its cap or printed on its paper packaging is eligible to be used for donation to TME. Head to https://us.coca-cola.com/give/schools/ to get started with Coca-Cola Give. You’ll donate by creating an account or signing in. Then, search for Towne Meadow Elementary (be sure to look at the address, as there is a school in Arizona with a similar name to our school). Follow the instructions to enter the code, and money will be automatically donated to TME. If you would rather, bring in your caps and/or packaging with the codes to the Front Office. I will enter the codes for you.
Shop at Shutterfly or Tiny Prints and 8% of your purchase will be donated to TME! This is an extremely easy way to raise additional funds for our school on products that many people are ordering anyway. TME will earn a commission when customers click thru the TME website and purchase products. Our webpage is http://tme.shutterflystorefront.com
4-H is an experiential program for youth in grades 3-12 (mini 4-H for grades K-2) that is delivered by Purdue University Cooperative Extension. 4-H stresses “Learning by Doing” and cultivating life skills such as cooperation, leadership, decision-making, and responsibility through hands on projects in over 60 different subject areas. 4-H welcomes young people of all beliefs and backgrounds while giving youth a voice to express who they are and how they can make their lives and communities better. Nearly 1,800 youth from Hamilton County are currently involved in 4-H and close to six million kids and teens worldwide and that is because 4-H has pivoted and adapted to today’s changing world by providing a platform to promote individual growth by learning, doing and engaging.
