CS PTO Update

Hello, Country School Families,

Can you believe this is our last week of school? That also means this is my (Jessie) last Sunday email. It has been a wonderful year and I have loved being the PTO Co-Chair for the past two years.

I will leave you in the very capable hands of my Co-Chair extraordinaire, Jess Kaplan, who has been a huge support to me this year and I couldn’t have done it without her. We are lucky to have Amy Casilio joining Jess next year as Co-Chair. What a power team!

It may be the last week, but it is still a very busy week at school!!

We have Field Day on Tuesday, June 13! Thank you to everyone who volunteered! There are still a few slots available.

The next day, the whole school will celebrate with a Year-End Picnic on Wednesday, June 14, from 4:30-7:00. The VeeBop Ice Cream Truck will be on-site with ice cream, and kids will be treated to a magic show. We hope to see you there!

Thank you all for your support this year. With your PTO membership dues and donations, we were able to do so many wonderful things for our teachers and the students. If you have not renewed your membership for next year, please follow this link to join or renew. This allows us to continue to provide staff appreciations throughout the year and put on school events like trunk-or-treat, field day, global diversity fair, free ice cream truck and so much more!

We are doing one more staff appreciation breakfast on Thursday. Our teachers will be treated to breakfast sandwiches for Heirloom. We also have a special surprise for them on field day!

More updates are below.

Have a great week and an amazing summer! Best regards, Jessie & Jess CS PTO Co-Chairs





Tuesday, 6/13 – CS Field Day

Wednesday, 6/14 – CS Family Picnic

Friday, 6/16 – LAST DAY OF SCHOOL! – Dismissal 11:00



Field Day is Tuesday, June 13! This will be a super fun morning filled with games, races, snacks, crafts, and more. To help us pull off this exciting and well-deserved break from the classroom, we need lots of help, so please sign up to volunteer! There are slots for parents who would like to help with activity stations, setup, and snack. Looking forward to the fun! If the slots are full, please reach out and we can fit you in! Everyone who wants to participate will be able to participate! Please see below for your child’s grade color.


Let’s celebrate the end of the school year at the Country School Family Picnic on Wednesday, June 14, from 4:30-7:00 on the CS playground. Bring your own nut-free picnic dinner. The VeeBop Ice Cream Truck will be on-site with ice cream for purchase, and kids will be treated to a magic show. We hope to see you there!


Country School will continue the tradition of clapping out our third graders as they leave the building at dismissal for their final time. This will take place on Friday, around 10:45 on the blacktop by the playground. We encourage parents to arrive around 10:15/10:30 to help decorate the blacktop with words of encouragement and congratulations. We are looking for a few parent volunteers to be the point person for this. Please reach out if you are able to help that morning.


Thank you to all of our awesome room parents who helped throughout the year and spoiled our classroom teachers!! Come find us at the picnic for a little thank you gift. We appreciate all of you! If anyone is interested in being a room parent next year, please email Jess Kaplan, jesstessa@gmail.com
