PTA is in need of volunteers for our Fall Book Fairs next week, November 1st through the 4th!
If you are a paid member of PTA and can help in any way next week, it would be greatly appreciated.
What would you be helping with? We need volunteers to help set up, assist children with sales, work teacher previews, help at our 2 night sales and we need people to help break down the book fair on the last day.

Churchill: (Please note that Churchill runs for a 1/2 day longer than the other schools)
PTA appreciates your help and dedication to helping the children in our district!!
The Homewood PTA is selling KidStuff coupon books. For just $25 you’ll have hundreds of dollars of money saving coupons at your fingertips.
50% of purchases go to the PTA, which uses that money to sponsor many educational programs among our 3 schools.
Your kids have gotten these books to take home for you to see. If interested, keep the book and send check or cash payment in the money envelope provided back with your child to school. If you’re not interested in the book, simply return the item to the school with your child.
Thank you for your continued support of the Homewood PTA.
Every cook likes to have the occasional break from having to get the groceries, prep the food and whip up a meal for dinner after a long day. Giving your favorite cook a break is a very nice thing to do. You can make it even better though by also supporting your local Homewood PTA. Tomorrow night, October 20th will be a chance to participate in one of the many Cook’s Night Out Fundraisers the Homewood PTA will be having this year. The first one this year will be held at the Aurelio’s in Homewood.
Where, When and How to Support Your Homewood PTA
Whether you want to head to Aurelio’s for lunch or dinner, dine in or carry out all you need to do is bring along the Aurelio’s flyer (see below) and give it to your waitress or carry out cashier for the Homewood PTA to receive the funds your meal will earn.
Chicago Cubs and Aurelio’s Pizza Make a Great Team!
This is a great way event for tomorrow night because many people will be watching game 3 of the NLCS series between the Chicago Cubs and the New York Mets. So whether you are planning to watch the game to cheer or jeer the Chicago Cubs you can do it without having to cook a meal. Just call or order online and give the cashier your flyer at pickup. Great food and baseball is a perfect pairing!

It’s almost here! The day your Homewood PTA has been studiously working towards. In less than a week and our new Schwan’s Home Delivery Fundraiser will begin!
The fundraiser will be in three parts. There will be a Willow, Churchill and Millennium/James Hart one. We are doing it this way to maximize our revenue so that we can continue to offer the great services we always have to our wonderful district. Each time a new school/building’s fundraiser kicks off we will update you with the code you will need to enter to have your order total be counted towards Homewood PTA.
First school up is Willow and the fundraiser begins on Monday, September 28th. Take a look below for the important information and the code to use along with a look at the catalog.

As many members of our community already know Market Day was bought this summer by World’s Finest Chocolate and promptly shutdown. The only way to get remaining Markey Day items it to head to your local GFS. GFS will apply sales to a school if you request it so if you are looking for any items you loved be sure to check that out.
All is not lost on easy food options as a fundraiser for the Homewood PTA. We are partnering with Schwan’s Home Delivery this year as our replacement to Market Day. Many people in our community already order from them. There are some definite perks to going with them that will be a plus to many families that used Market Day and may finally allow other families that couldn’t order due to the small pick up window a chance to use a service with better options.
