Kitchen Team Building

The Principles of Food students have been developing consensus-building and social skills in order to enhance their cooperation while working together in the kitchens. Through team-building exercises and cooking labs, students have already made huge leaps of growth in the confidence and accuracy they showcase during the labs. Next, the students will be learning about different cooking techniques and examining how cooking effects food.

Stingel Elementary PTO Playground Fundraiser
As the primary organization committed to serving in various capacities to better Stingel Elementary School, the Stingel Elementary PTO is currently seeking donations of both money and time from parents and the community in order to further develop the activities available to students and teachers outside of the classroom.

While the Stingel Elementary PTO has done several projects in the past couple of years, raising approximately $15,000 for two new swing sets, a climber, and tether ball poles, this year we are committed to raising a substantial amount of money to greatly improve the outdoor playground and surrounding area. Specifically, we are looking to provide the following:
1. Create an outdoor pavilion – this will allow our children a shaded space to congregate during recess as well as the ability to provide meetings outside as desired(approx. cost $10,000).
2. Add a new playscape to an existing vacant space on the playground – this will decrease/eliminate wait times on the existing playscape and provide our children with necessary physical activity(approx. cost $30,000).
3. Replace a set of swings on the playground – these sets of swings are dilapidated and need replaced (approx. cost $5,000).
4. Add rubber mulch to the existing pea gravel on the playground – this will provide added safety/comfort to our children on the playground(approx. cost $5,000).

These substantial improvements come at a fairly substantial cost; thus, we are looking to raise approximately $50,000 this year to provide the above to our children. Further, we will be soliciting volunteers to assist in building the outdoor pavilion.

We want the playground and surrounding area to be a safe and fun place for our children to play, and we would like your help in making that possible. Please consider making a donation online at https://www.youcaring.com/stingel-elementary-661507 or via the donation form below.

Further, if you would be willing to assist in volunteering your time or materials for the creation of the outdoor pavilion, or if you have any questions, please e-mail us at stingelelementarypto1@yahoo.com.

Thank you for your support!
