Pinot’s Palette Painting Event – Monday, December 28 1-3pm
Due to the positive feedback we had for the Thanksgiving break painting activity, we have scheduled another one for over the Winter break. It will take place on Monday, December 28 from 1-3pm. Again, you can choose to participate in-studio (limited availability) or virtually. Painting kits can be shipped. We are also working to coordinate a kit pickup closer to school to make it more convenient.
As before, this will be a private Scullen event. However, you are welcome to invite family and friends from around the country to participate alongside you. See the attached flyer for the picture we will be painting. Registration links are listed below:

Scullen PTSA Giving Campaign
In the spirit of the Giving Season, we would like to invite you to make a donation directly to Scullen PTSA to help us fund additional activities and initiatives.
Due to this ever-changing & challenging year, our PTSA has found itself with only 50% of the membership we have had in previous years. In addition, we have had to directly fund (rather than rely on our usual sign-up of in-kind donations) more of our initiatives and activities than a normal year.
As you may have read above, our first virtual Bingo night is being offered for free and we would like to consider doing it again. We would also like to fund additional water bottle refilling stations within Scullen. Earlier in the year, we voted to fund one station. We would love to be able to offer more opportunities for students to stay safely hydrated within the building. And we are always looking for additional ways to support our staff. Hopefully, with your generous donation we can send out a small holiday gift to each staff member or reinstate our Staff grants to encourage continuing professional education.
Scullen PTSA is a 501c3 organization. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Any donation is appreciated. Thank you for your continued support of Scullen PTSA & Scullen Middle School.
Donations can be made at: https://scullen.new.memberhub.store/store
Many of us are taking advantage of Amazon shopping this holiday season. Please support the Scullen PTSA every time you shop on Amazon. The app is now available on your phone! Go to the settings, Amazon Smile, and choose to support "Scullen Middle School PTSA"
