Thank you to all those who made our last two events so wonderful: First, we bundled up and had a blast at outdoor movie night. A huge thank you to organizers Holly Shaw, Amy Ro and Ade Ighodaro as well as our concessions team of Michele Elliot and Jacquie Mital, with extra help by Alex Schulz and Kim Murphy.
Thank you also to Jen Mellish and Andrew Gottfried for hosting our Kindergarten Parent Social at their home.
Such great community events to get us ready for the fall!

Our first PTA General Membership Meeting will be Wednesday, October 16th at 7pm. Babysitting and pizza will be provided. We will be featuring a guest speaker at each meeting and this month we're excited to have our friends from Watchung Booksellers come talk to us about our upcoming Book Fair!
The Watchung Birthday Book program has started up for the year! Every kid deserves a book of their very own to read, and so every student at Watchung receives a new book of their choice for their birthday, during their birthday month, from the PTA. This week, volunteers staffed the book cart during lunch and handed out books to those with August and September birthdays. We'll be scheduling October's day soon (and don't worry--summer birthdays get a book too!)!
