Mrs. Lisa Walk
Dear PTO Members,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our volunteers. We
are not able to create a successful PTO without you! The Fall Harvest
Festival was a huge success and it was our volunteers who made it so.
Everyone who came had a great time playing games, eating popcorn, watching the dancers, going on hayrides, and picking out mums and pumpkins. We
had fabulous items that were collected from the community by one of our
remarkable volunteers and raffled off at the event. Congratulations to all
our raffle winners! We also completed our first book fair and had
volunteers there every day working with the children. They helped fill out
wish lists, make book selections, and locate books for purchase. We have
our Holiday Shoppe and Bazaar coming up on November 23rd and will need a
lot of volunteers in order to make that event a success. Please consider
donating your time that day to help us make it a magical experience for our
children and a fun time for our parents and staff.
Dear Parents,
On Wednesday, October 23, we received a letter from the IRS
approving our application for tax exempt status for the Trebein PTO!
We applied for this status in April and are excited that our approval has
finally come through. We will now have a few more opportunities to raise
funds for our children’s school. Since we were waiting for this to get our
Krogers rewards, we immediately filled out the Kroger application and on
the 24th we were approved, see information in the Rewards report on how
to sign up for this and look for new, exciting Family Night Out
opportunities.
As you take time to meet with teachers for
conferences over the next week, please know that if I
could meet with each of you individually, I would thank you
for all that you do from home. Your children show up for
school rested, fed, clean, and ready to learn. They are
polite and helpful to one another. We understand that
nobody is perfect. But, it is clear that these students are
certainly trying their very best and doing a lovely job!
Without your help, Trebein could not be the wonderful
school it is.
Thank you for your support of the Trebein PTO! We appreciate all the
hours spent, hard work, creative ideas, generous donations,
fundraising help, and enthusiastic encouragement! Please join us at our
next PTO meeting on Tuesday, November 19th, at 7:00pm where we will
continue to make plans to provide financial and social support to the
children of Trebein Elementary.
Sincerely,
Chrisonna Anderson-Lutz, Trebein PTO President
It is hard to believe that we have finished the first
quarter of school already! Students and staff members
have worked very hard to establish a school that is
positive, safe, and maintains high expectations for
learning. It is easy to feel the enthusiasm as you walk
through the halls at Trebein. After spending years on
facility committees to finally reach the point where this
building is up and running is definitely a dream come true
for me. The school itself is beautiful, but even more importantly the feelings of pride that flow from everyone
who spends their days here are a lovely testament to the
kind of school Trebein has become.
Sincerely,
EST. 2013

Teacher
Appreciation
News
Hello Parents,
I wanted to share with you just one of the 3 thank you cards that the staff gave to the PTO in
appreciation of the Stock the Breakroom event (above). Friday, October 18th was our second Teacher
appreciation lunch. It was a big success. The teachers were provided soup lunch. We had several
Volunteers! The sign up for this event filled up in just 1 day. Wow!! It is so great to see how our school
appreciates the teachers!! Thanks so much to all of you. During the Teacher Luncheon we had a drawing and
10 teachers each received $10 gift cards from Tools 4 Learning. Those teachers are :Melissa Barker,
Kira Brower, Christina Busch, Becky Cheney, Kelly Dapice, Holly Holstein, Rhonda Keller, Jessica Parthemore,
Kristin Siefker, and Jenn Torbeck. We would like to thank Tools 4 Learning for that donation. The November
Teacher breakfast is being provided by Feed the Creek.
Sincerely,
Jodie Gervais, Teacher Appreciation Chair

Call to Military Families
Are you a military family?
Join
our
Facebook
Group – Military Families
o f
B e a v e r c r e e k .
It’s an informal support
group for military families
(Active, Guard or Reserve) with
school-aged kids (or soon to be)
who live in the Beavercreek
area.
Our goal is to support and
connect with each other and
our children. This is a place to
ask questions about schools,
connect our military kids, and
help navigate our way through
this assignment.
Military children are unique.
From the many moves they've
endured, stress of deployments
to the educational imbalances
of multiple school districts military children have different
stressors than many of their
peers. This group is great way
to find support for yourself
and your kids.
We post information about
Beavercreek City Schools,
WPAFB youth information,
research and articles on
parenting military children and
information on education.

Fall Harvest Report
The Fall Harvest Festival was a success! Thanks to the
hard working volunteers, we earned more than $2,300 for
Trebein’s PTO. That money will go directly back into our
children, something we should
all be proud
of.
A special thank you to Lynn Hay, Lindsey Burrup, Jamie Cox,
Andi Durrell, Chrisonna Anderson-Lutz, Christina Pyles and
Gretchen Miraglia. These ladies led the way to a fabulous event –
best team ever! I wanted to thank the volunteers who donated
their time and/or items. I hope I didn't forget anyone, but if I
did, I'll buy you a coffee when I see you!
I only volunteered to lead this event because so many people
signed up to volunteer, so many people cared about our school!
