Hi lovely PLCP Members,

We will be having a Clothing Drive Fundraiser this month.  

From April 6th-30th we will be collecting any and all used clothing items (shirts, pants, socks, shoes, coats, etc.).  The clothing does NOT need to be in terrific shape as Goodwill will buy back any clothing items and will find a use for everything!  There will be a large box and a sign posted in our classroom for donation collection.

Things to remember:


  • Goodwill will pay us a per pound price for the amount collected so the more we take in the more $$$ we raise…woot!
  • Clothing does NOT need to be pristine so bring in anything!
  • Childrens clothing is great, but adult items, coats and shoes will weigh more and therefore bring in more $$!
  • Family and Neighbors are a great source to ask for a donation,  AND, if they don’t need to bring the items in themselves they will probably be more likely to donate 🙂
  • All of our adorable little kiddos are pretty hard to say no to, so bring them along when asking for donations.  Spring Break will be a great time to start collecting!


This will be our last fundraiser for the year so let’s try to make it really count!


Your Happy PLCP Board

PLCP Read-a-Thon

We are so excited to start our Read-a-Thon soon.  The big kick off will be Thursday, January 22nd from 6:30PM-7:00PM.  It will be in our classroom and include snacks, costumes and of course….BOOKS AND READING!  Our fantastic Edmonds children’s librarian will be there to lead a reading circle with books all about Community Helpers. Community Helpers will be our theme for the kick off so feel free to encourage your child (and yourself) to dress up as your favorite fire person, doctor/nurse, police person, construction worker, cable guy/gal, librarian or any other “helper” you can think of!  Snacks will be potluck style but please remember: NO NUTS.

Jamie Schmidt (our new Registrar) will be the Read-a-Thon contact person and will have packets available soon. Packets will include a daily chart to keep track of materials (books, comics, magazines or anything) you read with your kiddos as well as information on how friends and family can sponsor your little reader. It’s a great fundraiser for our school but it’s also a great opportunity to encourage a love for books and reading 🙂

Looking forward to a fun kick off and event!
