The following items are reprinted from the latest News from Miller and Craddock School newsletter.
The Aurora schools can earn money from Target stores through the Give With Target program. The company is giving up to $5 million nationwide to schools.
Local residents can vote for Aurora schools through Sept. 21 by visiting http://givewith.target.com/?v+0. Select a K-12 school from the list of eligible schools and vote for it.
It takes just 25 votes to start. After that, Target will donate $25 to a selected school. Upon receiving 25 votes, each additional vote equals $1 more for up to $10,000 per school. There is no purchase necessary. Voting ends Sept. 21 at 11:59 p.m.
Voting is limited to legal residents of the United States who are 13 years old or older. See "terms and conditions" and eligible schools in the Give With Target app on Facebook.com/Target for details. Or check out guidance counselor Tami Mazzella's blog at Tmazzella.blogspot.com.
Miller School recently hosted Grandparents / Grandfriends Day for the preschool students. Thanks go to all the parents who donated baked goods for the occasion.
Lunch menus are sent home every month and are available on the school district's website. Parents should review the daily selections with their children. School officials want to be sure all students eat healthy lunches and are ready for an afternoon of learning.
Parents still can turn in PTO membership and volunteer forms. The AuroraReads program still needs volunteers. To help at Craddock, call Sue Mansell at 330-562-8648. To help at Miller, call Deval Sheth at 330-518-1448.
Thanks go to Mr. McCloud for his donation of Purell to Miller School, Boy Scout Brett Poremba for improving Craddock School's landscaping by adding a brick row next to the parking area and Craddock parents who use name cards in cars to move the pickup lines along quickly.
Craddock's picture day is Oct. 2 and Miller's is Oct. 3.
