No time to swing by the store? Small cash donations of $5 or $10 are greatly appreciated and help us provide refreshments and supplies for the Morning Mixers. Click here to sign up!

Thanksgiving Pies for SEM Teachers




Hello SEM Parents! Please help us celebrate our fantastic teachers with a pie for Thanksgiving. The SEM faculty and staff have requested their favorite flavors so let's show them our appreciation by donating a home baked or store bought pie! Please package your pie donation so that the teachers can take them home safely to their families! PTSA will attach ribbons and tags before distributing the pies.

Please bring pies before school (perhaps send with your student to school) to room Room 211 on November 22, 2019.

Please contact the PTSA Hospitality team at hospitality@semagnet.org with any questions.

Thanksgiving Lunch for Our Teachers

 


Hello SEM Parents! The PTSA asks for your help to show how thankful we are for our wonderful SEM faculty and staff! With everyone's help, we will provide a Thanksgiving lunch buffet for our teachers and staff on Friday, November 22, 2019 in Room 211 from 11:00am to 1:00pm. We would love for you to bring your favorite Thanksgiving side dish - PTSA will provide the main meat entrees. Can't bake? Side salads, rolls, and cold drinks are excellent no-bake options. We also need volunteers for set up and clean up before and after lunch. Don't have time? Please consider a small donation! With everyone's help we can show how thankful we are for all they do!
