                                 5 Grade Popcorn Business Starts Tuesday, May 12
                                                       New Day!!
                Fifth graders are in business again! Join these young entrepreneurs as they open their annual
      popcorn business, Tuesday, May 12th. Students will be selling bags of popcorn for the next four school
      Tuesdays to all Park students and teachers.              Fifth grade students have been in business for
      over 14 profitable years and are applying their            learned economic knowledge to a real business.
                Besides learning about economics,                our popcorn business has a second purpose.
      The profits generated by this business have                 gone to help children in need. With our profits
      this year, we will buy teddy bears to be used                 for children at Geauga Hospital.
                All fifth graders are involved in all               aspects of our business, from sales, money
      collection, popcorn preparation, distribution, advertisement, and accounting. The cost of the popcorn is
      $0.25 a bag. Money and orders will be collected each Tuesday morning, and the popcorn will be delivered
      each Tuesday afternoon. Making change from dollar bills can be difficult and time consuming, so we ask
      that students who want to buy popcorn bring in quarters, dimes, and nickels. Fifth graders hope that Park
      students will support our business and have some great tasting popcorn, too!!

Due to the confirmed case of swine flu in Lorain County, I am including a reminder of influenza symptoms.
Influenza is not gastrointestinal (stomach) upset. Influenza is a severe upper respiratory illness
characterized by sudden onset, fever over 101° headache, sore throat, cough, muscle ache and fatigue.
Please seek medical advice when these symptoms are present to confirm influenza. It may be serious and
need to be treated. If you suspect your child has influenza or is ill with these symptoms, please keep
him/her home until their illness has been confirmed.

Congratulations to the following students who have a piece of artwork on display at the Middlefield Historical
                                                                   th     th

WHAT:       Pizza Cook-Off to benefit the Cotter family
WHEN:       May 16 , 2009, 3-7:00 p.m.
WHERE:      Geauga County Fairgrounds in Burton
WHY:        Mr. Cotter fell from a ladder last fall and is now paralyzed. His wife works as a teller in
            Chardon and is now the sole supporter of the family. The home they reside in does not
            support their needs. This event offers entertainment for the whole family and 100% of the
            money raised will go to help the Cotter family of Chardon.

Students who are moving from the area or are transferring to another school next fall should
notify the school office as soon as possible. The parent/guardian needs to come in and sign a
withdrawal form or request one from the school office. By notifying the school of your child’s withdrawal, you will
speed up the process of forwarding important school records to the school where he/she will be enrolled.

                          Happy Mother’s Day!
