Dear parents,

We know that so much about this school year looks different, but weʼre so excited that our school will be participating in an online Penguin Patch® Holiday Shop to spread holiday cheer!

Penguin Patch® Holiday Shop is a fun way for students to shop for family members and experience the spirit of giving while learning to earn, budget, and save! Our online shop will be open from November 9th to November 16, 2020.

To log in to our schoolʼs secure shopping platform, please use this link:

Your student will have over 100 delightful gifts to choose from, all ranging in price from $0.50 to $12. This is an amazing opportunity to empower your student to choose, purchase, and give gifts to their loved ones!

All gifts will be shipped straight to your home for a small flat-fee. Theyʼll arrive in festive “Special Delivery” packaging, with wrapping supplies included!

Weʼre excited to create this new holiday tradition and spread good cheer with you! 

Happy Holidays,

Your Patsy Sommer PTA 


It's time for the Stuff the Boots Kona Ice reward!

Get the creative juices flowing, it is the last few days before your PTA Reflections Contest Entries are due!!

This year's PTA Reflections theme is "I Matter Because ..." 

To participate simply create and submit entries (artwork) that relate to the theme. Art categories include Dance Choreography, Literature, Film Production, Music Composition, Photography and Visual Arts. At least one person from participating students’ household must have a PTA membership.

PTA Reflections will be virtual this year! All submissions will be digital. Please fill out our online  form at  

Students are requested to keep their original artwork even though they have submitted a digital version. If they make it to the State judging level (exciting!), TX PTA would love to be able to see the original.
