Americans celebrated Groundhog Day last week and an early spring was predicted. However, Ukraine had its own groundhog predictions to heed. Timko III, the Ukrainian groundhog, saw his shadow last week and thus, predicts more cold and wintery weather to come in the next months. Let's hope his prediction is wrong this year!
As we approach our mid-February break, what better way to enjoy celebrating St. Valentine's Day than baking, buying and eating tasty homemade confectionary goods. The PTA / Secondary Student Council Valentine Bake Sale is next Thursday, 14 February at 14:00. Please donate baked goods on Valentines Day to help raise money for student projects.
Tickets for the PTA Fundraising Gala, The Black and White Ball are selling fast, 20 seats have been sold already! If you have any items or promises to contribute to the Silent Auction, please let us know. It is not only a chance to give back to the school, but also a chance for marketing your organisation or a local company you want to support! More information, including how to purchase tickets can be found here.
As promised, the minutes from last week's PTA General meeting #5 can be found here for anyone who was unable to attend. We hope to see you at the next meeting, Tuesday 26th February, 8:30 in the PSI Cafeteria!
