Water for Field Day

Field Day is coming up on Friday, May 20th.  Mr. Ho, our PE Teacher, organizes the day but the PTO provides many of the supplies he needs.

We are asking families to donate a case of bottled water for the day.  The students will carry the bottles with them while they have fun during the day.

If you can donate a case of water, please use the sign-up below or leave a comment here so we can keep track of donations.


Thanks for supporting Samuelson!

Family Fun Night Week

Its Family Fun Night Week! Fun Night is this Friday, March 4 from 6-8 pm. The cost for students is $6 and anyone wearing yellow or green gets a $1 discount.

Local businesses have donated a bunch of great Door Prizes including: Blank Park Zoo, Wasabi Chi, Chuck E Cheese, Imagine Salon, Monkey Joes and Apex Athletics.

The concession stand will have cans of pop for $1, popcorn for $1, and Hyvee pizza for $1.50.

All proceeds from the evening will be donated to the school library for new books. Each book costs between $10 and $20, so we are hoping to earn enough for more that 50 books.

Children must be accompanied by an adult. We hope to see you there!
