- Special thanks to Brad Weyant and Texas Lawn Services (AUSTINTXLAWNS.COM) for generously donating NOT ONLY nine Live Oak trees, but for planting, mulching, and staking those trees as well! These trees will beautify and shade Pillow not only now, but for years to come! Thanks so much to Texas Lawn Service for their generosity.
- Don’t forget that the Cookie Dough/Butter Braid fundraiser orders, with payment, are due on Thursday, November 17, at the latest. Delivery will be before the Winter Holidays, on Thursday, December 15.
- The Pillow Running Club has gotten off to a wonderful start! We are looking for someone who might like to sponsor the Pillow Running Club in exchange for advertisement on our shirts that we will wear every Tuesday and to all of the running events that we will participate in. Interested? Know anyone who might be? Contact Kimberly Davishines at firstname.lastname@example.org. What a great way for our students to stay fit!
- The Lost and Found is growing! Please check to see if your child’s coat/sweater, etc. is there before all is donated to charity. Putting your child’s name in his/her clothing helps!
- The nurse’s office could still use some children’s clothing for times when accidents occur, particularly sweatpants and underwear
- Have you visited Pillow’s new website? It is still under construction, and we want feedback! Go to pillowelementary.weebly.com and click on the mailbox to let us know what you think. Visit the website and join the yahoo group for info and recent updates on activities at Pillow.
