THANK YOU to everyone for getting us so close to our 500 member goal – just 60 people short! As your reward, we are NOT going to have a contest or tell you time is running out! What we are going to do is THANK YOU for signing up! THANK YOU for reading these emails! THANK YOU for supporting our school with this simple act!
And if you haven't yet, maybe consider doing it today? It doesn't take long.
1. Log into your Membership Toolkit account.
2. Go to this page to join. Just because you have an account doesn't mean you're a member. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you're not sure if you've joined this year.
If you were a member last year and haven’t yet signed up, look for an email soon asking you to join this year. 500 PTA members was a big stretch for a school of 442 kids but we still think we can get there.

If your student is NOT retaking their photo, they are expected to wear their Sudie uniform.

Land's End Fundraising Opportunity!
Did you know Land's End will donate a portion of sales back to Sudie if we reach $5,000 in total sales by the end of the year.
We are only about $800 short, so this would be a great time to stock up on cold-weather uniforms.
Visit the link below and enter Sudie's School Code (900195801) to get started.
Next week is Anti-Bullying Week. See below for the themes with Jeans.
Sudie TAG Theater Co Presents
It’s five days before the premiere...and high school drama director, Chris, has actors who are still on script, cast members absent from rehearsal, a sick stage manager, an unbuilt set and only twelve dollars left in the budget. Oh, and the principal is bringing the superintendent on opening night to see if funding for the drama program for the district should be cut. It’s a director’s nightmare..."
Come see the Theater III students perform "Director's Nightmare"
December 6 and 7
Sudie TAG Auditorium
