News from the PTA
Students can buy popcorn during recess on Fridays for $1 cash. Or, buy a 20-punch card for $15 by sending a check written to “Purdy PTA” to school with your child. In the memo, write “Popcorn” and your child’s name and grade.
We need more volunteers to serve the popcorn!
SIGN UP to help serve popcorn on a Friday from 10:45am-12:30pm No experience necessary.

Big Truck Night / Purdy Open House
Our 3rd Open House / Big Truck Night on August 24 was another great success, thanks to all of our community sponsors, after school program organizers, teachers, staff, and our amazing Purdy PTA volunteers. Purdy students and parents had the opportunity to meet their new teachers and drop off school supplies, check out the big trucks, and meet community supporters.
