PTA Kicks off Monthly Staff Birthdays & Luncheons

The PTA kicked off its traditional monthly birthday celebration for Evandale’s finest! 

  • Thanks to the generosity of Nothing Bundt Cakes (Tucker), every teacher, staff member, and bus driver will receive a Bundtini Tower during their birthday month this school year. 
  • We celebrated 22 May-September birthdays and are looking forward to celebrating our October birthdays at the end of the month. 
  • If you stop by Nothing Bundt Cakes, be sure and thank them…."Evansdale Teachers + Staff are Nothing Bundt the BEST!”

The PTA will also host its first monthly teacher luncheon October 15th in recognition of the last day of Hispanic Heritage Month. 

  • Our teachers and staff will feast on yummy Mexican food provided by our great volunteers. 
  • Thanks to the 5th grade families who contributed food items! 
  • The next luncheon is scheduled for November 12th. Fourth grade families will be asked to help if possible.
Save the Date: Fantastic Friday Reimagined

October 30th

The PTA and school staff are planning a fun, Covid-friendly Fantastic Friday. Details are still being ironed out, but as of now, you can expect:

  • Chalk Fest- Purchase a square to decorate with your family!
  • Dinner- Purchase an easy and cheap dinner so you don't have to cook!
  • Screen on the Green- Free for everyone! Come grab a section of the lower field to watch a movie with your family!
  • Concessions- It wouldn't be a movie night, without purchasing some yummy treats!

The movie is free for everyone! All purchases (chalk fest, dinner, concessions) will benefit the PTA and 5th grade classes.

Stay tuned for more details!!!
