OUR VEGGIE GARDEN NEEDS SOME VEGGIES
Hey Boone families, did you know we have a veggie garden? We do, and it's pretty awesome! Right now we need veggie donations to make it even better! Can you help? You can donate seeds or starts. Some examples are: snap and lima beans, asparagus crowns, beets, kale seeds or transplants, okra, peas, turnips, and more. Contact Luci at membership@boonepta.org or Matthew Garland at mat@peascommunity.org for a full list of what you can donate.

BECOME A BOONE PTA MEMBER!
Have you noticed the beautiful gardening being done around the Boone campus? Were you here for Trunk or Treat or Star Wars night? Those things and more are done through your Boone PTA. A group of dedicated PTA parents happily do things like door decorating for teachers and organize lunch volunteers so your kid can have a great elementary school experience.

Would you like to join us? Membership fees are $8 for an individual or $15 for a family of any size. And as a member of the PTA you have access to information and the option to vote when decisions need to be made. There is no obligation to volunteer or attend meetings, but it sure would help!
