This Friday, Feb. 10 is the Enchanted Evening Dance from 7-9 p.m. at Albright in the big gym. This is a family event, so we ask that children please bring a special adult in their lives. All district 48 families are welcome to attend.
In addition to the dancing, socializing and snacks, we will have photos, raffles and trinkets for sale. Raffle prizes include a giant stuffed bear, lunch with Mr. Jackson, a Coach purse and lots of other fun items. Jewelry, buttons, hair accessories and fabric wrist corsages will also be available for purchase.

Anyways Dine Out
There will be a dine out at Anyways coming up later this month. It will actually be held on 2 days – Tuesday, Feb. 21 and Wednesday, Feb. 22 to allow people who may have a commitment on one of those nights to participate. Any lunch, dinner or carryout orders count – you just need to present the flyer when ordering and the district will earn 15% of the proceeds.

Our Holiday Shoppe is happening next week, Dec. 12-16! It will be at Salt Creek on Monday and Tuesday, Swartz on Wednesday and Thursday and Albright on Friday. Information was distributed this week. Check your child’s backpack.
The idea behind the Holiday Shoppe is to give children an opportunity to purchase items for family members and friends that are low-cost and they feel proud for having picked out themselves. This is an experience they will remember from their childhood – and they’ll have fun shopping for gifts.
Feel free to preview the items we’ll have for sale AND, new this year, create a wishlist online to print and send in with your child. Go to 9281560.holidaytreasuresgifts
Thanks for your support! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Today is the last day to get your orders in for FTC’s winter fundraiser from EPI. We can still accept orders if your child brings it to school on Tuesday, or you can order online at www.epifunds.com. Please see flyer for details.
FTC is going to have the Holiday Shoppe again this year from Dec. 12-16. At this event the children got to pick out reasonably-priced gifts for family members and friends. It is held at the schools during school hours so the gifts can be a surprise for family members. More information about the sale will be sent after Thanksgiving break.
We need volunteers to help make the Holiday Shoppe a success. We are looking for people to volunteer for 2 hour shifts. Please see flyer for details, and contact Kate Beckwith (email@example.com) if interested. This is a great way to see the kids having fun and help spread some holiday cheer!
This year we are adding handmade items to the sale. If you are interested in contributing items that would be sold for $.25-$10 please contact Julie Tobias (firstname.lastname@example.org) or review the flyer for further details.
Thank you to the district families that supported the Michael Anthony’s dine out last week – we made $225 off the dine out – a huge success!
