Carnival Thank You’s

Another awesome West TV Carnival is in the books with many thanks to share!! First to Mandy Becker, our Carnival coordinator for planning and running the event, thank you! And thanks to the many parent and community volunteers who set up, cleaned up, face-painted, and ran the cake-walk, (some of whom did multiple shifts) thank you! Finally, thanks to our 20 student volunteers, many who were West TV alumnae for running the carnival games!Would you like to help with next year’s Carnival? We are looking for a few people to learn from Mandy (who will have a 5th grader next year). If you would like to support the school by coordinating this event, please contact our volunteer coordinator, Karri Iverson at karriwesttv@gmail.com.

Continent Club – Last Check This Thursday!

The final Continent Club check of the year is this Thursday at 8:45. During this final check, the kindergarten classes, who have been preparing in class, will participate, which means it’s very important to have a full crew of volunteers. No experience necessary to come spend a few hours helping our kiddos learn geography – and it’s so much fun to see all of the grade levels!Here is the volunteer link to sign up: 16 Volunteers still needed

Rummage Sale Donations

Rummage Sale Donations

It’s that time of year again. You know what I’m talking about… Spring Cleaning!!!

And what better way to get rid of all your awesome stuff that you just don’t use anymore? Bring it to the school for the 2nd Annual West TV Rummage Sale on June 8th!

Right now, there are 2, count ‘em, 2 Pods ready and waiting for all of your fantastic donations. “What can I donate?” you are probably asking. Almost anything that you would want to buy yourself. But just to be helpful, here is a quick list to use as a guide:

  • Clean, intact clothing, coats, bags and shoes. If it has a huge mustard stain from last 4th of July that never came out, that’s a shop rag, not a rummage sale item.
  • Household items like lamps, blenders, vacuum cleaners, etc. Just make sure that it works and is something that someone else could actually use. If it was left over from great granny Edna’s estate sale, there is probably a reason.
  • Games, Movies, Toys, Sporting Goods. Almost anything goes here. However, if it was something that was obtained on that road-trip for free with your kids Happy Meal, that probably goes in the recycling bin, not a rummage sale.
  • Electronics? Sure, with one big caveat. Look at the back, does any of the ports say HDMI? Then you’re good. If the only output is a red, white, and yellow RCA, then that’s from when we were kids and it goes to the museum instead.
  • Bikes, Sleds, Outdoor Fun Type Stuff. Sure thing, as long as bike chains aren’t eating pants, those items are usually fan favorites.
  • Books, Books, Books. Need I say more, this is a school.

What not to bring:

  • Bike Helmets- Child Car Seats
  • Anything that you wouldn’t want to buy yourself, if you didn’t already have something so cool
  • Anything with a street value under a buck (see previous list item)

These are either risky to pass on or impossible to sale and are probably better to find anyway to move them.

Thank you for your donations!
