The district PPEL grant has been renewed for 10 years and is worth approximately 40 million dollars. If you are available, please plan to attend. Your input is valuable.

Chick-Fil-A Night Tonight

Chick-Fil-A Night will NOT be cancelled tonight due to the Winter Storm Warning. However, there will be some changes, in order to ensure everyone’s safety.

If you choose to venture out, mention the Ashland Ridge PTO and 15% of sales will still be donated to the PTO. However, because we don’t want anyone to be required to attend, we will be cancelling the Milk and Cookie Party for the most kids in attendance for this month. This way, our volunteers will not have to go out if the weather gets as bad as they are predicting. In addition, Mr. Moss may not be behind the counter greeting people this month.

Please note that Chick-Fil-A will happen the 1st Monday of each month in 2015, and will return to normal on February 2nd. In addition, Wendy’s Night will be back on Monday, January 19th from 5:00-8:00pm with 4th grade teachers hosting. Wendy’s Night will be the 3rd Monday of each month in 2015.

Thank you so much for your understanding in keeping everyone safe in the winter weather. Stay warm!!!!
