To The Teachers of Sandy Hook…

Dear Sandy Hook Faculty & Staff,

As mothers of children in our elementary school, teachers, and PTG Officers, our hearts are deeply saddened by the events that occurred at your school.  We know that there are no words or enough monetary donations to take away the pain from that day, but like every mother in America, we feel a need to do something for all of you so you know that we are thinking and praying for you and your community.

On December 14th our school held our annual Give-a-Gift event where for 25 cents each student can purchase 2 gifts for parents.  The money raised is matched by the PTG and is given to a local charity.  We could not think of a better place for this money to go.  We hope that this donation will help teachers as they transition to their new school.

With sincerest support,

PTG Officers
Erin Mucci
Erica Morin
Shannon Nicol
Beth Petropolous

C.T. Plunkett Elementary School

It’s Give-a-Gift Time!

Friday, December 14th, marks the day for our annual GIVE-A-GIFT Workshop.  Give-A-Gift provides a seasonal theme conducive for ALL children and their beliefs.

Volunteers from the PTG set up a shopping room for the children to purchase gifts for two special ADULTS in their lives (usually 1 male and 1 female) at a cost of 25 cents each.  Our devoted volunteers then wrap the gifts and label them for the children.  The monies collected from the children’s purchases, and a matched amount from the PTG will be donated to a local charity.

At this time we are asking for donations of gifts for our store.  Each student should bring in 2(or more!) gifts.  The items MUST be new and need not be expensive.  The local dollar store is a wonderful place to purchase these gifts.

We will need 1208 gifts in total!

Please send them in UNWRAPPED in a brown bag so that the children do not see the treasures.  The items listed below are just some ideas of things you could donate to our Giving Shop:

  • simple tools

  • magnets

  • nuts

  • pens

  • pot holders

  • jewelry

  • perfume

  • paper pads

  • flashlights

  • coffee mugs

  • dishtowels

  • soaps

  • chocolate/candy

  • kitchen gadgets

  • golf tees

  • scarves

  • current magazines

  • tape measures

  • after shave

  • golf balls

  • salt & pepper shakers

  • gloves

  • playing cards

  • calendars

  • ties

  • books

PLEASE DO NOT SEND an item that could represent a danger to the students, i.e. razors, pocket knives, carton cutters, lighters, etc.  NO USED items.

If anyone is able to volunteer for a 2-hour shift on Dec. 14th between 8am-3pm please contact the PTG at ctpptg@acrsd.net or facebook.com/CTPlunkettPTG.  

Thank you!! We look forward to a successful program!!  CT Plunkett PTG
