Hello Field Falcons!!

Don’t forget to order cool gifts for that special family member or hard-to-buy-for person. With over 40 unique and useful keepsakes ready to purchase during the Square 1 Art fundraiser, your child's artwork is the perfect gift for any occasion or celebration. Nothing says “you’re loved” like “I made this art keepsake just for you!”  A portion of the proceeds goes back to the Field PTA.  You can still order online until Monday, November 26th. You will need your child's access code to order from the website,

Wrapping Paper Tubes
As the holidays get closer and presents start to be wrapped, please save your tubes.  They can be dropped at 155 N Clinton.

Amazon Smile
Do you shop online through Amazon?  A great way to give back to Field PTA is to shop through Amazon Smile.  The Amazon Smile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organization selected.  To donate to the Field PTA, go to and select Eugene Field PTA Inc as your organization.  This is a one-time step, that will benefit Field School PTA.  

Volunteer Opportunities:

Dinner/Lunch for Parent Teacher Conferences
The Teacher Appreciation Committee would like to provide dinner for the teachers during the two nights of conferences as they only have a short time to eat. Monday night we will be providing soup, fruit, and dessert. Tuesday will be sandwiches, chips, fruit, and dessert. We need volunteers to bring food and drink items for dinner on Monday and Tuesday. To purchase food for parent teacher conferences, sign up at the following link:  Please send to school labeled "PTA Kitchen" by Monday, November 21st unless otherwise specified. Thank you in advance for your support!

Monday Munchies
The Teacher Appreciation Committee is continuing with "Monday Munchies" for our awesome Field teachers and staff.  If you would like to donate snacks for the month of December, please sign up here:

Emergency Snack Fund
Ms. Salaman is looking for volunteers to donate to her emergency snack fund each month.  You are able to sign up for one month or recurring months.  All food must be store bought and nut-free.  Any donations can be dropped in the office.  Thank you in advance for your help and to those who have already signed up and donated!

Our awesome Field PTA Treasurer, Amy Kehoe, will be "retiring" after this school year, so the PTA will need a new treasurer for next year(s).  We would like to have the next treasurer shadow Amy before her role is finished.  If you would like to learn more about this important PTA Executive Committee role, please email Amy, amy.kehoe@yahoo.comor me,


Committee Chairs
There are still committee chair positions that need to be filled.  If you are interested in chairing any of the below committees, or for more information, please contact Vicki Marini,

Junior Great Books--Looking for a co-chair
Hands On Committee
Summer Recreation Open House Rep
*Field is one of only a few D205 schools that does not have a rep.  There are only 2, 1 hour meetings and the event itself on Wed, Feb 6th 2019.  It's also a great way to be aware of the summer camps and activities available in Elmhurst.
Winter Wonderfest--Looking for a co-chair--We are in need of a second chair person to oversee concessions and games.  

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Break!
