at the new North Junior High. Please collect the
bottle caps you have used at home because we
need 250 lbs. of caps! This includes all drink
container caps, food container lids, and
shampoo container caps, etc. Bring them to
school and place them in the buckets located in
the cafeteria and front office. The bench will be
located at the new North Junior High and North

QUESTION: How can we show our appreciation to our child/children's teacher(s), principal, or
school’s staff?
ANSWER: You can express your "thank you" to any outstanding Educator by contributing to the Public
Education Foundation of Evansville, Inc. in his/her honor.

         "Thank-A-Teacher" contributions to the Public Education Foundation are returned to schools in
the form of classroom enrichment grants. For 25 years, PEF has been a school and community partner
in public education. Since 1985, PEF has granted over $6 million to all curriculum areas. Last year, over
$2,100 was received in Thank-a-Teacher donations. These donations help fund our 2010 Excellence in
Education grants – a total of nearly $10,000 which was awarded in 19 grants to 13 schools for projects
impacting over 2,250 students.
         Won't you consider honoring that significant educator in your child/children's life by
contributing to the "Thank-A-Teacher" program? Upon receipt of your contribution, the Foundation will
send a special card to the honored person congratulating him/her on being recognized by your family.
Please send your tax-deductible contribution check with the form below to:
                                       "Thank-A-Teacher" Program

P.S. May 2-6 2011 is PTA Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week. What a unique and caring way to honor
your child's special educator(s)! Send your donation now and we will send the honored
teacher(s)/administrator(s) a card and special little gift during Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week.

I know the end of the year is so busy for all of us. As you read this email, please keep in mind
that the things we are doing are for EVERYONE'S children...we need a lot of help.

The last OHMS PTSA meeting - EVER - is Monday, May 2nd @ 6:30. PLEASE attend this
meeting to get info about the end-of-the-year events that we need to pull together.

 6th & 7th Grade Parents:
** If you can help May 5th at the 6th/7th Grade Honors Reception, please meet in the small gym
at 5:30 to set up. VERY EASY - just cookies and drinks. We will also need people to help clean
up afterwards.

 8TH Grade Parents:
** If you would like to be involved with the 8th Grade Graduation Dance, we will be meeting
planning done! If you can't attend the meeting but want to be involved, let me know!

** 8th Grade Honors Banquet: Some help setting up before the banquet is needed. Please be at
North High School at 5:00 if you can help.

** Teacher Appreciation Week starts May 2nd. The committee has planned some great things
for the teachers. Please be sure to look at emails regarding the need for food. This is a great
opportunity for the people who can't do things during the day to just drop stuff off at school.
ALSO, we will be putting together goodie bags for the teachers at the PTSA meeting Monday.

** "A WILDCAT NIGHT OF MEMORIES" is May 13th. If you have not heard about this, it's a
night of celebration for all former/current students, staff, and teachers of OHMS. There will be a
cookout, program put on by former students (yes, you may participate!), and then a concert by
THE DUKE BOYS! (For more information, look at Facebook page: Oak Hill Middle School "A
Wildcat Night of Memories"). The PTSA has been asked to take care of the food for the event.
WE WILL NEED HELP!!! The cookout is from 5:30-7:00. If you would like to help, please
let me know!

Unfortunately, the offices of PRESIDENT, VICE-PRESIDENT, AND SECRETARY have
not been filled for next year. I know it seems like these positions are very time-consuming, when
actually, they are not. I have made sure that that the biggest events/committees have been filled
for next year. This will take a HUGE weight off the shoulders of next year's President. ALSO, a
lot of schools are trending toward the idea of CO-PRESIDENTS. This enables 2 people to work
together and SPLIT the meetings, forms, responsibilities, etc. I really think this would work well
for next year. IN ALL HONESTY - if my daughter were not graduating this year, I would stay
on as President for next year. Now that I have it "figured out", it's not so bad. I will be glad to
help guide whoever decides to take the positions for next year. I have great pride in what we
have done this year, and I know that it will be better next year! Please feel free to contact me if
you have any questions about possibly filling one of these positions. Consider it an opportunity
to have a front row seat to what is going on at the new school...I know we all care about our kids
and what is happening at their school.

So, like I said....tons of info! Thanks in advance for helping out during the CrAzY time of year!
We need to help the students and teachers end the FINAL school year at OHMS with a BANG!

Hope to see you Monday night!
Elaine Shreffler
PTSA President
