Parent Engagement Calendar
Hello, Panter Families!
We are super excited about November being Parent Engagement Month. Our district has developed a calendar of events for Parent Engagement Month! You should see a copy of this calendar coming home soon. We would love to see how your family is involved in activities. Feel free to upload photos to our Facebook page or Class Dojo. Be sure to use the hashtags: #engagingfamiliesonpurpose and #panterwildcats
Check off activities on the calendar as you complete them and write your initials in each box. Be sure to total how many activities you completed! Calendars are due back to school by December 3rd.

Typing Club Access
We now have school-wide access to Typing Club, a website that provides students with Typing practice. The site is available for students in every grade, K-5. It can be accessed by going through Clever, the same way your student accesses myON. Or, your student can use the link below and select the Clever login option. Your student's login will be the same login they use for the computer at school. The username will include @paulding.k12.ga.us at the end. So, if my lunch number is 111111, then my username is email@example.com
The password is your student's first, middle, and last initial, followed by his/her month and date of birth (all lowercase, no spaces). So, for example, smp0624

Pennies for Paulding
It is that time of year again! Time for Pennies for Paulding!
Pennies for Paulding is a fundraiser to support Hope for Christmas. Hope for Christmas is an enormous community event that takes place once a year in order to provide new toys at Christmas time for approximately 2,800 underprivileged children. Pennies for Paulding is the biggest fund drive of the year to raise money for this event.
Last year, our school system raised a little over $40,000. The toys provided from this fund drive help to make the holidays a little brighter for the children of Paulding County. This project also provides students, parents, and staff members with a meaningful opportunity to help others in our community. Please join us by donating coins, cash, or checks (payable to Hope for Christmas).
Please send in a note with the amount of money you are donating. If it's coins, PLEASE count them and give us a total. Feel free to donate as much and as often as you would like starting Monday, Oct. 28-Nov. 8, 2019.
If you have any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
