Cookie Event for Teachers and Staff

In the giving spirit of the holidays, the PTO is hosting a cookie event on Friday, December 9. This is to provide an opportunity to shower the teachers and support staff with cookies and other treats!

We're asking families who wish to participate to bring two dozen cookies or treats to the auditorium on the morning of Friday, December 9. Teachers and staff will fill boxes of treats during their breaks, and any extras will be packaged and given to staff that may not be present that day and bus drivers.

While items with nuts are welcome, please clearly label them as we have staff with allergies. Also, some gluten free options would be lovely as we do have staff that are gluten free.

Please sign up to donate treats if you are able!

News and Upcoming Events

Giving Tree

If you would like to purchase a gift of winter weather clothing or a small toy for someone in our Angell community, there’s a Giving Tree now located outside the main office. More apples have been added! Parents are welcome to stop by anytime to pick an apple (i.e. an item to shop for) from the Giving Tree.

Produce Station Meals

Angell PTO is proud to be partnering with a local organization, The Produce Station, offering delicious, seasonal meals for your family to enjoy! The Produce Station is committed to bringing Ann Arbor the finest seasonal produce around town and is generously giving 10% of proceeds back to our PTO. Once a month, you can place an order and then choose in-store or curbside pickup.

Take a look at the menu options this month with an ordering deadline by 5 pm this Thursday, December 8 and a pick up for the following week on Wednesday, December 14, 2022 between 12 noon and 6pm.. You can order the Produce Station meals directly online. All package dinners serve 4-6 people and will be assembled in disposable oven-ready foil pans for easy reheating.

Chairs Needed for International Celebration

Angell’s International Celebration is one of the highlights of our many school traditions. It’s an exciting and educational event that brings the whole school together, and is enjoyed by all. We’re looking for 2-3 individuals willing to co-chair the event this year! For those who are new to Angell, our International Celebration is an event that celebrates our school’s rich cultural diversity and gives families an opportunity to learn about cultures and traditions from around the world. Activities from past celebrations have been the Parade of Nations where Angell students march with a banner or flag of their home country; the bazaar-style World Market, where tables are set up with books, pictures, crafts or activities representing various countries; and the potluck-style World Buffet, where families can sample traditional foods from all over the world, made by and shared with Angell families. If you are interested in co-chairing this very special event, please let us know. The event will take place in late April.

Missing Spirit Wear?

All orders for our Fall Spirit Wear sale should have been delivered by now. If you are missing any items from your order, please email Joy Leung.

Used Book Sale

Please save the date! We will host a used book sale at Angell on Friday, December 16th. The book sale will begin during the school day, when children will have an opportunity to shop, and will run until 4:15 p.m., to allow parents to shop immediately after school. The goal is to help families clear their house of books, while raising money to purchase new books for our school library. Books can be purchased by families for a low price. It’s a great way for kids to buy gifts for family members!

We invite you to set aside books your kids have outgrown. We are accepting books for children of all ages- board books through young adult. Drop boxes are located at the library, the school entrances and outside the office door. The deadline for dropping off used books is Monday, December 12.

December PTO Meeting

Please join us for our December PTO Meeting on Thursday, December 15 from 9 to 10 a.m. The meeting will be held in the community room of the University Lutheran Chapel (ULC) located at 1511 Washtenaw Ave. The Angell and ULC parking lots are connected by a small set of stairs. We will cover upcoming event information and our treasurer’s report. We welcome new ideas, perspectives, and assistance. If you are unable to attend the meeting in person, please join us via zoom.

PTO Membership Survey

Every parent or guardian of an Angell student is automatically a member of the PTO. The Angell PTO's mission is to build a sense of support, pride and enthusiasm, while encouraging parent and staff involvement in the service of our children's education. What we accomplish in a school year requires participation from every family. That will look different for every family and that's ok! This might be setting up tables for our Book Fair, serving as Room Parent for your child's classroom, or chairing the Talent Show. If you haven’t already done so, please complete our Engagement Survey to select how you’d like to get involved this year.
