Explorers and Parents

on Tue, 08/15/2017 - 09:01

We are getting to our busiest time of the year. I need to make sure everyone is aware of the schedules. They have been updated on the website and there is a possibility of some last minute things that may be added on. In this email I am going to bullet point different items for clarity.

1. Parents Meeting on August 23rd. Please be at the FDC no later than 7:00 to be able to start on time. We will be discussing MDA - Balloon Classic which will be over Labor Day weekend and Fallen Firefighter Memorial which starts for Explorers on Wednesday Evening 09/13/2017. It is important that you are there to receive this information. We will also need parent support during these two events as well.

2. Supporter Hoodies - We are trying to gauge the interest of anyone who would like to purchase a hoodie. Tami Thomas is heading up this project and by the parents meeting we would like have a head count if this something we want to entertain ordering.

3. If your explorer attended the Ride Academy this summer, we will have flash drives to give you of all of the pictures that were taken by Lynsday Bertram as well as the video. There is no charge for these. These will be given out at the Parents meeting on August 23rd as well so please be at the meeting to get your flash drive.

4. King Soopers cards - we have done a great job in using these cards as an ongoing fundraiser. We appreciate your continued support and encourage you to continue to use them. If you need additional cards we will have them available again at the Parents meeting on August 23rd.

5. Reminder - community service hours - Explorers are required to do a minimum of 6 hours of community service each quarter. Please make sure to balance your schedules to be available for community service.

If you should have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you again for your continued support and success of this program. We appreciate your support of your explorer as well!
