The PTO meeting tonight has been cancelled. We will resume in January. Happy holidays!


We have so much to share about how wonderful the second annual Summerwind Festival of Trees was tonight! But to start - a huge THANK YOU to these three superstars for doing most of the setup! Thank you Didi Wallace Axtman, Samaria, and Alessi Photography!!


All of the trees were delivered to the school today! You may have received some communication from your teacher regarding their possible needs for the classroom trees ♥️ 🎄 can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with!


📕 🎄 ❄️ We hope to see you there! This year’s theme is Stories of the Season and each tree will come with the book that it’s inspired by! 📕 🎄 ❄️


Have a happy (and healthy!) Thanksgiving break! No school this week, see you back on November 28!


The PTO meeting last night was - as always - PACKED. Here’s what you need to know:

📚 The book fair was a huge success! Thank you to everyone that volunteered, made decorations, made purchases, etc.

🏬 We need your help running the school store! Are you able to volunteer for an hour or so on Fridays? If so, please contact Didi Wallace Axtman (tagged in the comments).

🎄 Our second annual Festival of Trees is Thursday, December 8. This year’s theme is Stories of the Season and each classroom’s tree will come with the story it is inspired by! All of the trees this year are brand new, pre-lit, and available for purchase as a silent auction. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be there, a photo booth will be ready to capture your memories, and hot cocoa and candy canes will be provided. The event goes from 5:30pm-7:00pm but the auction will only be from 5:30pm-6:30pm. Please be prepared to take your tree home that night 😊

🎰 Lastly, it’s never too early to start talking BINGO NIGHT. It’ll be April 13, 2023. We will need volunteers and items to raffle. If you know of a business that would donate goods or a gift card, please let us know!


PTO meeting tonight in the library at 6:00pm!


‼️‼️6:00pm TOMORROW in the library! Please come join us, there’s lots to talk about! ‼️‼️

Mrs. Stewart is the West Ada Principal Pride spotlight!! You’re a rockstar, Mrs. Stewart! Summerwind is lucky to have you 😊


LOTS going on this week at Summerwind!

1️⃣ STEM night is this Thursday evening! Flyers went home with students last week 😊
2️⃣ Book Fair is this week! You can send money with your student(s) for them to shop during their usual library time or you can attend the parent shopping hours.
3️⃣ For the third and fourth graders, there’s a Veteran’s Day Program on Friday from 1:45pm-2:45pm. Families of the students are welcome to attend.

None of these are PTO events, so if you have specific questions, please reach out to your student’s teachers or call the front office 😊


A big THANK YOU to our volunteers who have helped with preview week this week and an advanced THANK YOU to all of our volunteers helping with the actual book fair next week!

It’s not too late to sign up to volunteer!

This was one of, if not THE, highest grossing years for the Track-a-thon! Thank you to everyone for contributing by pledging, donating raffle items, or supporting the students in their walking/running 🙏🏼 And thank you Mrs. Porter for organizing this awesome event (again!)


The PTO provided lunch and dinner for staff tonight - Casa Mexico for lunch and Blimpie for dinner! Thank you to the people who donated to help pay for this and to the PTO for arranging everything 💗


Thank you Holland's Bites and Brews for your generous donation of coffee and muffins for our teachers on this conference day morning!


We didn’t get to formally introduce her earlier, but this is Didi Wallace Axtman! Didi is our amazing Volunteer Coordinator and runs the school store. She’s also someone the PTO can count on in a pinch - and today she picked up coffee and muffins from Holland’s Bites and Brews first thing this morning, picked up bread from my house, and delivered it all to the school! The teachers are thrilled to have coffee and breakfast first thing in the morning on conference day. Thank you, Didi!


Don’t forget to order your hoodie! The link is in the pinned post 😊

@summerwindpto | Linktree

Thanks to a suggestion from fantastic PTO parent tonight - we now have Linktree! The Summerwind STEM PTO Venmo, Amazon wishlist, and t-shirt order form are all posted!

@summerwindpto | Linktree Linktree. Make your link do more.


The PTO meeting tonight covered a LOT of ground - and in the process I forgot to take a photo!

Here are the major things needed at this time:
💥 VOLUNTEERS…for the November book fair (details to come). We need parents to help students during the student’s shopping time and the evening parent’s shopping time.
💥 VOLUNTEERS…for the school store. It’s coming back October 28 and we need your help! Details to come.
💥 DONATIONS. We need monetary donations to help fund PTO provided meals during parent/teacher conferences next week. Any amount helps and Venmo payments are super easy! We also need donations to fund a new cart for the school store. The old cart could no longer be repaired, but a new one is expensive. Again, any amount helps!

Here are the topics discussed tonight:
🎥 Movie Under the Stars recap
👕 Summerwind tshirt sales and….HOODIES! Summerwind Supersonic hoodies will be coming soon! And, if you missed out on ordering a tshirt, you can order those again! Once we hit 48 tshirt/hoodie orders, we can place the order.
🏬 The school store returns October 28! And we need volunteers to help run it and donations for the new cart.
🏃🏻‍♀️ Track-O-Thon is THIS THURSDAY! The PTO helped obtain donations for the raffle for this event that benefits the PE program and recess supplies.
📚 This year Summerwind will have a book fair during Idaho Family Reading Week in November! Details to come. The PTO will be helping with advertising and volunteers.
☎️ Parent/teacher conferences are NEXT WEEK. The PTO is providing lunch and dinner for staff on October 20. We were also generously donated coffee and pastries for breakfast that morning from Holland's Bites and Brews!
🎄 Festival of Trees is December 8 at 5:30pm! Santa and Mrs. Claus will be returning, hot cocoa and cookies provided, and this year’s theme is “Stories of the Season”. Each classroom will have a brand new, 4’ pre-lit tree available for auction! There will be a mix of green and white trees.



PTO meeting TONIGHT in the library at 6:00pm!


Reminder: PTO meeting October 10, 6:00pm in the library! Please join us 😊

Don’t forget! There’s still time! Tracking sheets have gone home and pledges can be collected until October 12!

The Summerwind STEM Trackathon is TWO WEEKS AWAY! This is a fun event during the school day to promote healthy living and moving your body. The kids can earn raffle tickets by being sponsored to walk/run laps during a 30 minute period. The raffle tickets can then be entered for fun prizes that promote physical activity at home! This is one of the biggest fundraisers for the school and benefits the PE program.
🏃🏻‍♀️ 🚴 💃🏻 ⛷ 🏃🧎🏾‍♂️🚶🏿
To help Mrs. Porter with her event, the Summerwind STEM PTO created an Amazon wish list of things that would make great raffle prizes. Purchases from the Wish List ship to PTO President who will deliver them to the school. Any purchase or donation you can make would be greatly appreciated by students and staff.

❗️Link to the wishlist ❗️


Living in bliss remembering how many happy faces we saw this night ♥️
