RAVENS FOR POE | HURRICANE HARVEY FUNDRAISER FOR THE POE COMMUNITY - Poe Ravens have been hard at work, hosting a lemonade stand, selling cookies and lemonade, to benefit Poe Teachers + Staff impacted by the floods brought on by Hurricane Harvey. In one day, $2848.68 was raised. We appreciate everyone who contributed to this effort!
Would you like to continue the Sibling Folder system this year? If so, we need about five parent volunteers. We started this last year so that if you have more than one child at Poe, you would receive communication from the front office in only your eldest child's Monday folder. Please e-mail Lia for more info: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kudos to the Poe Dad's Club for jumping into action!

The AMAZING Poe Dad's Club is helping with demo and cleanup of houses. They could use plastic bins with lids, bleach, spray bottles, paper towels, masking tape, sharpie markers, trash bags, other cleaning supplies. You can drop supplies at Leslie Wubbenhorst's house 2212 Robinhood (between Shepherd and Greenbriar) and she will distribute to the volunteers.
We are saddened and shocked by the devastation around our city from Harvey and its flood waters. But we are also amazed at the spirit and resolve of those impacted, and the bravery and selflessness of the first responders and volunteers. Poe PTO wants to help in any way we can. We are a large active group that takes care of the Poe Community. Please let us know if you have been hurt in any way from the storm. We are gathering supplies and sending groups out to help Poe families, teachers and staff that need assistance. Please respond by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or text Leslie Wubbenhorst at 713-829-0594 and let her know if we can help you with your recovery.
We have just received a notice from HISD that the first day of school will be delayed until Monday Sept.11. Please stay tuned in case there are any changes. You can also go to www.houstonisd.org for updates.
