The PTSA is continuing to collect Boxtops for Education and will use the monies
raised for PTSA programs at the Celebration School. Please encourage all your family
members (including grandparents, aunts and uncles, etc.) friends, neighbors and co-
workers to help collect Boxtops. Each Boxtop is worth 10 cents and out school can earn
up to $20,000 per year – that’s 200,000 Boxtops. Last year we earned a total of
$1,105.65 - a huge increase over the previous year of approx. $400! Let’s try to get
General Mills to send us our full $20,000 this year!

Hurricane Season
Aside from some roof and window leaks, our school weathered Hurricane
Jeanne fairly well. We know our staff, school families and students are
continuing to adjust after the hurricanes and missed school. Thank you for your
patience and understanding with one another as we all work to get back to normal.
Please be courteous around school; many individuals are unable to live at home
And need extra care.

Thank you to the parents who completed the Guidance Survey for Middle School
Guidance Counselor Nona Noel. Results will be published in Pawprints.

Jump in the Pool!!
1st and 2nd graders will begin swimming lessons in October. Swimming Lessons will be
held at Lakeside Pool. First grade attends the week of October 18th, and second grade
attends the week of October 25th. Each class has a half an hour lesson, each day of the
week. Parent volunteers are needed. If you are interested in volunteering, an Oasis
Volunteer Application must be completed three weeks prior to chaperoning. Please
contact your teacher if you are interested in helping during this event

Staff Changes
Welcome Jenni Castillo, our new Secretary to the Principal. Jenni comes to us from
Celebration High School. Her new position actually brings her back to Celebration
School K - 8 which is where she started when the two schools were combined. Special
thanks to our Secretary, Claire Slater, for doing two jobs at once while we waited to hire

Mr. Paul Allen, ESE teacher, has been assigned as our K - 8 Reading Coach, a new
position funded by the county. Reading Coaches are in every school and their purpose
is to work to help teachers who teach reading. We are very excited to have this new
position available to our staff. Mrs. Denise Kanner will replace Mr. Allen as an
Elementary ESE teacher, changing from her Middle School assignment. A new Middle
School ESE teacher is being hired.
