Let's sell those raffle tickets! - Deadline May 5
Time to hit the streets and start selling the raffle tickets that came home in your child’s Wednesday envelope last week!
We hope to raise $10,000 towards the approximately $80,000 we need next year to cover the cost of all the programs that the PTA pays for. Some sales strategies: take some tickets to work, put a post on Facebook, knock on neighbors’ doors (bring your cute, smiling child!).

Principal's Note: April 2017
From the Desk of Principal Mendoza:
The year is winding down and there are a few things on the horizon. We have some wonderful activities coming up - Rainbow Week will be a wonderful celebration with Ms.Gretchen’s amazing band providing music for the Rainbow Day parade. For parents/caregivers who have given so much of their time to Flynn, we salute you! I would like to invite all volunteers to attend our annual Volunteer Appreciation Day on Thursday, April 20th.
Beginning April through May, our students will be showing their brilliance with testing. Students must arrive to school on time during the testing period. Healthy and nutritious breakfast and lunch are provided at school for all Flynn students.
I am pleased to announce that the security gate has been installed. The school gate will be unlocked at 8:15am daily and supervision will provided for students from 8:15am onwards. There will be no adult supervision before 8:15am so please plan to leave your child at school after 8:15am. I ask that all parents/caregivers abide this rule to keep our students and community safe.
Thank you for reading and have a good month ahead!
