Greely PTO Parent Appeal: We Need Your Help!

posted Oct 13, 2017, 11:03 AM by Tammy Tarling

Give to Greely PTO's 3rd Annual Parent Power Appeal by November 3!

Thank you to everyone who has already contributed to the Parent Power Appeal this year! We're a little over the halfway mark to reaching our $10,000 goal and need some extra "parent power" to get to the finish line! The deadline is Friday, November 3rd.

Last year, Greely PTO contributed $21,592 for teachers K-8 to invest in enrichment opportunities for their students and created and/or contributed to more than 20 family events that help foster a vibrant school community. 

None of this would be possible without the support of MSAD-51's generous parent community! Thank you for helping make this powerful impact on Greely schools by supporting our biggest and most important fundraiser. 
 
A reminder form is going home in students' folders today and can also be printed from our website. If paying by check, please send it in with your child to school along with the completed form. Or you can make your gift online.

Soup & Cider Day at Skyline Farm

posted Oct 6, 2017, 6:01 AM by Tammy Tarling


Soup & Cider Day will be held Sunday, Oct. 15 from 12-3 p.m. at Skyline Farm, The Lane, North Yarmouth

 

Beautiful Skyline Farm, North Yarmouth Historical's newly-refurbished cider press‚ and bushels of local apples: the perfect combination for a brisk Maine October day. This is fall at its best!

Everyone is invited to pitch apples into the hopper of the cider press, help turn the crank, and watch the liquid gold pour away. There will be plenty of cider for all and delicious homemade soup and breads, too.

Soup & Cider Day is traditionally a real community affair and, as always, we're asking for a few good cooks to contribute a crockpot of your best soup or your favorite cornbread or rolls. Every year brings a new culinary delight, thanks to talented and generous local kitchen experts. Please call 
(207) 846-4379 to let us know what you can bring.

This beloved event is open to all. Walk Skyline's trails… peek into the museum... have a hearty lunch ... drink 100% fresh cider ... pick a bushel of apples down the road at Hansel's Orchard. 

An additional feature will be miniature horse-drawn wagon rides by Ben Lapointe of Greene, back by popular demand from Skyline’s Sleigh Day and Plow Day events. 

Enjoy a beautiful fall day. Dress warmly! Donations are welcomed.
