Labels for Education

Hello Skyline Ranch Elementary Parents.We have some sad news. In the past few years participation in Labels for Education® has declined and as a result, Campbell has come to the very difficult decision to wind down the LFE program.

The program will continue exactly as is for the remainder of the 2015-2016 LFE program year. There will be changes for next year’s program starting August 1, 2016. As the Coordinator for our school, my goal is to ensure that we maximize our opportunities to earn points before the conclusion of the program. Continue to Clip and Submit UPCs and Beverage/Sauce Caps, as all participating products listed are still accepted through July 31, 2016.

In the upcoming school year, Campbell will continue to support American kids through the Grand Stand for SchoolsSM sweepstakes where last year, Campbell contributed more than $1 million to schools. More information on this program, and on how we can participate, will be coming.

Thank you for all of your help and for being a part of the LFE program. Please reach out with any questions on LFE program changes or timing.

Sincerely,

Skyline Ranch PTSO

Welcome, Skyline Parents! 2016-17 School Year Will Be Great!

Welcome to the Skyline Ranch K-8 Parent, Teacher, and Student Organization (PTSO).

We are excited to have talented and caring parents like you on our team.  For those of you unfamiliar with us, we are a network of parents, teachers, and students who work to strengthen, enhance, and encourage the educational and social environment of the school by providing opportunities for parents, students and teachers to learn, socialize, communicate and grow.  The PTSO works hard to make the school year exciting and enjoyable for students, teachers and parents.

We are looking forward to meeting parents, guardians and grandparents who are interesting in getting involved in the PTSO this year.  Many parents have already signed our 2 Hour Pledge — a commitment to giving just 2 hours of time to volunteering at the school this year.  Will you join us? There are a wide range of opportunities that include daytime, evenings, and weekends.  By working together, we can ensure that our kids and teachers have a fantastic year.

Your feedback is welcome and encouraged.  Contact us anytime at skylineranchpto@gmail.com or by leaving a message for us at the school.  All new ideas and opportunities will be explored as we continue to grow and strengthen the organization.

See you soon ~

Stacy Gramazio, Anastasia Aoyagi, and Selena Sachse
