PTA Meeting #2

Please join us for our second PTA meeting of the year this Wednesday, December 4th at 6pm in the Cafeteria.  



Join the PTA!

78 people have joined the Friends of New Traditions PTA so far this year. Our goal is to have 200 members so we’re almost halfway there. If you haven’t already joined, please do so now (link below) - it only costs $10 to join, and as a member you’ll be able to take part in the decision-making process about how PTA resources (time, energy, and money) are used to support our school. Your input is critical!

SSC Meeting Notes

Please see the meeting notes for the SSC.  The last meeting on November 14th included a discussion on Project Based Learning.  



Sloat Garden Growing Up Green - December 1 - 8

Shop at any Sloat Garden Center between December 1st and 8th and mention New Traditions at checkout to earn 10% back for the school. Take advantage of this shopping fundraiser to purchase Christmas trees, holiday flowers, wreaths, vegetable starts, flowers, compost, soils, fertilizer and garden tools to earn gift cards for our school. 



Chipotle Fundraiser - December 8th

Ease into next Monday and make dinner a breeze by joining us for a fundraiser to support New Traditions. Visit the Chipotle at 2675 Geary Boulevard in San Francisco (City Centre Mall by Target - Masonic/Geary/Anza) on Sunday, December 8th between 4:00pm and 8:00pm. Bring in the attached flyer, show it on your smartphone or tell the cashier you’re supporting the cause to make sure that 33% of the proceeds will be donated to New Traditions.

** Online orders will not be included in the fundraiser total ** 



The Booksmith Fundraiser - December 9th

Shop at The Booksmith or The Bindery on Monday, December 9th from 10am-10pm. Give our school's name at the register (and at the bar!), and Booksmith will donate 15% of the total sales for all the purchases to New Traditions!  The Booksmith location will be providing cookies and juice for free throughout the day. Sounds like a good excuse to get together with some other parents or families and do some shopping and socializing!


Sports Basement Holiday Shopping Days - December 6-12

Head over to any Sports Basement or shop online between December 6-12 for either 20% off (Basementeers) or 11% off (non-Basementeers).  From shoes to jackets to bike gear to camping supplies, there is something for everyone at the Sports Basement!
