Poly Drivers: Fall mixers bring families together

A little food, fun, and conversation – sounds like a great mix! Poly PTA provided pizza, families brought dessert and other sides to share, and the mixing commenced. Kindergarten and 1st grade teachers attended each mixer, respectively, to share a welcome message and visit with families.
Thank you to all who shared food for the event, to teachers and staff for joining us, PTA members for their help with the event, organizer Letha McDowell, and all the families that participated.

Poly Drivers: A whole lotta miles trekked during fall Walk/Bike to School Week

Huge thanks to our walk bike to school week sponsors, Allegra Printing, The Bike Shop on Grand, and Cross Petroleum Service.

Also, we couldn’t have made WBTS week successful without all our parent volunteers.  We appreciate all that you do for Poly Drive Elementary Students.

Poly Drivers: Walk/Bike to School Week nets impressive mileage

The report on Walk/Bike to School Week for spring 2017 is here! During the week of May 8-12, Poly Drive students logged an impressive 795.3 miles. That’s one-third the length of Mississippi River, or all the way across Montana and half way back!
There were 1,585 trips. Mrs. Egan’s class had 131.7 miles, for a free recess win. And Mrs. Hanley’s fifth-graders logged 97.6 miles, winning them the intermediate grades’ extra recess prize.

What fuels all this energy? While we don’t have a confirmed report, we do know there have been some serious efforts on the Box Tops for Education front. In fact, Mrs. Whittmeyer’s class turned in the most Box Tops (829) winning them an afternoon treat of Wilcoxins ice cream bars. Congratulations and thanks to everyone for participating!

A huge thank you to our generous sponsors: The Bike Shop on Grand, Midland Implement, Cross Petroleum Service and Poly Drive PTA. We couldn’t have done it without you!
