Bring in items for auction classroom baskets!
The annual EAB silent auction is around the corner. This fun event is organized by EAB’s Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) and will take place on Saturday March 11 from 10am-12:30pm at the school, on the same day as World Fest. You can win great prizes, and proceeds from the silent auction directly go back to support student learning and school activities.

Next PTO coffees: February 23 and March 9
Still a few weeks away, but you can already mark your calendar. These are the dates for the next PTO coffee mornings, one for the Upper School families (February 23, 8:15-9:15am) and one for the Early Childhood families (March 9, 8:15-9:15am). The PTO organizes these coffee mornings for the different school sections together with the school to bring attention to topics of interest and support communication among the EAB community and school staff.
PTO meeting February 21 2017
The next PTO Board is on Tuesday January 24 at 1:30pm in one of the iCommons meeting rooms. Of course you don’t have to come to the PTO Board Meetings to help out with PTO and other volunteer activities at the school, but you are always welcome to share your thoughts and suggestions. With questions and suggestions or to see last meeting’s minutes, please email PTOsecretary@eabdf.br.
Stay in touch with the PTO. If you are interested in participating in organizing PTO events or simply being part of a Whatsapp Group of "PTO volunteers" (so you can always know what is going on), please contact PTOsecretary@eabdf.br or simply talk to a PTO member at a meeting or coffee morning. We look forward to seeing you!
