News and Upcoming Events

Volunteers needed for Art Fair Parking Fundraiser 

The Ann Arbor Art Fair is being held  July 20, 21 and 22 this year. The Angell School PTO collects money to let cars park on school grounds during daytime Fair hours. Historically, we have earned ~$2,000 each year through this fundraising effort to support great Angell programs and initiatives!

We need volunteers! Volunteering involves: flag-waving and promo sign management at the Washtenaw Ave Angell School entrance, directing cars to park safely and efficiently on the Angell grounds, and collecting payment from parkers. The fundraiser runs Thurs - Sat, 9 am - 3 pm daily on Art Fair days. Upon arrival, volunteers will get instructions on how to work the event.

Sign Up Here! 

Each session needs at least 2 volunteers age 15+. Angell students and other siblings are welcome to come along, and to help wave flags and park (under adult oversight). If you want to volunteer but have questions you need answered first, contact fundraiser co-chairs Elly or Eli Samuels:

Family in Need

If you have the means to help, one of our Angell families is in need of slightly used or new clothing. A list of needed items can be found here. Please drop off the items at school. 

Library News

All library books are due back by Friday, June 2nd.  Ms. Lauer and Ms. Friedman have worked very hard this year to cultivate an engaging book collection, please help us maintain it. 

Registration for 2023-2024 Before and/or Aftercare is open!

Registration for Rec & Ed’s Before/After School program is open. The Before/After Care program promotes children's wellbeing through enrichment activities, positive relationships, and a safe environment.

Please note that in 2023-24, to be able to operate, before school programs must have a minimum of 15 students enrolled, and after school programs must have a minimum of 25 students enrolled. Some sites with low enrollment in 2023-24 will be open to students from other buildings. 

As sites reach minimum enrollment numbers, Rec & Ed will email parents to let them know that the site will officially open in the fall. All parents who have registered for Before/After care will be notified of their school’s program status by the week of July 10.

End of Year Items

Classroom teacher gifts and end of year parties 

You will be hearing from your room parents soon regarding end of year classroom parties and classroom teacher gift collections.   Room parents will be organizing a group collection for their classroom teacher, which will be optional for families to participate in.  Individual family gifts and cards are also welcomed and cherished by teachers if you prefer.

Specials Teachers and Staff Gifts

The PTO will ensure our specials teachers and staff receive a proper thank you from Angell families for another successful school year. Thanks to your generous Family Contributions this year, we will not be collecting separately on this occasion as we have in past years. 

Ice Cream Social Raffle

* New this year*- the PTO is adding a fun raffle activity to our beloved Ice Cream Social this year. We're asking each classroom to assemble a themed basket full of goodies that can be raffled off at the Ice Cream Social. Information was sent recently from your room parent about the theme for your classroom basket(s). Please consider donating a small item, or making a monetary donation, to make this activity a success.  If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Allison Gacek.
