Hello Field Families,

Welcome to November and the second quarter of the school year. I hope everyone had a nice three-day weekend, including that extra hour of sleep with Daylight Savings Time ending on Sunday.

November 1 kicked off our annual No Sale Fundraiser! This fundraiser goes through November 30, and you can find all of the details on the Field School website. Your donations help the Field PTA fund programs and experiences for Field students. You can donate here. Thank you for your support! 

Project Success is one program that Field PTA was able to fund through your generous donations. Your student should have received a Project Success flyer in the mail last month. Not only does your student receive workshops in their ELA class, but students and families can receive free tickets to several local theater/arts performances. Ask your student about Project Success and go to their website projectsuccess.org.

Coming up on November 11 is our Barnes and Noble Bookfair. Shop for books and listen to performances by Field band and choir students.

Please reach out if you have any comments, questions or suggestions for Field PTA.

Warmly,
Erin Mitchell
Field PTA Co-chair

INFORMATION AND REMINDERS
No Sale Fundraiser   
It's time to roll out the red carpet for the 2019 No Sale Fundraiser! The No Sale Fundraiser, which runs through the month of November, is the primary fundraising campaign for the Hale and Field PTA's. Each year since 2003, this fundraiser generates thousands of dollars for Hale and Field Schools and represents 40% of our annual fundraising efforts.
 
The Hale and Field PTA's provide financial support to Hale and Field schools that cover a wide variety of programs. While the fundraiser runs through November, we strongly encourage early donations! GiveMN hosts its annual Give to the Max Day on Thursday, November 14. Donations starting today through November 14 are eligible for additional prizes and donations from GiveMN. Donate to Field here. Thank you for your support!
 
Field Holiday Helpers - Sponsor a Child or Family
Before we know it the holidays will be here. We want to remind you of a wonderful program that needs your help, Field Holiday Helpers. By becoming a sponsor, you can make a difference in the lives of Field students and families that are facing financial hardships this holiday season. Sponsors are anonymously matched with a child or family, providing gifts and other essentials based on personal wish lists created by the receiving child or family. If you are in a position to sponsor a member of our Field community, please become a Field Holiday Helper.  A financial donation in the form of cash or gift cards is also an option in lieu of shopping for gifts. Last year 12 Field families had a brighter holiday season thanks to the generous contributions from over 40 Field families, staff and local businesses. To become a sponsor, please complete the Field Holiday Helper Sponsor Form. If you have any questions, please email hhsponsors@gmail.com.
