Events
The Ardmore PTSA supports many events throughout the year, and works to keep the calendar updated with school and PTSA events. Below you'll find information on upcoming events, and photos from our past fun!

Upcoming Events

Kind World Project Workshop Canceled due to low enrollment. We are working to reschedule. (original date: Join us on Feb. 1 from 6-7pm at Ardmore for a free Kind World Club Workshop. Learn more and RSVP: https://www.campkindnesscounts.org/ardmore)

Ardmore Elementary has an opportunity to start a Kind World Club!
These clubs are parent-led groups who work through Camp Kindness Counts' Kind World Curriculum, a program centered around developing strong character in our selves, socially, and globally! Explore art projects, games, reflections, and service projects to build strong character that ripples out to families, schools, neighborhoods, and communities! CKC will offer their resources and expertise to guide and support the parents' success!  
 
Join us Friday February 1st from 6-7pm for an evening of learning more about this program, connecting with other like-minded parents, learning about character development, self-care, and holding space for new and innovative parent-led ideas to build communities of kindness in our neighborhoods.
Ardmore's after school Choir (3rd-5th grade) will be participating in the Elementary Zone concert on Tuesday, February 5th, 7pm at Interlake High School. Please come support them!
The Science Fair will take place on March 29th!

Exhibits, demonstrations and hands-on activities for the whole family!  Sign up form return date is Friday February 8th.  Forms went home in backpacks, or you can fill out the online science fair registration form. Boards must be brought to school on Thursday March 28th.
Family Night
Our next Family Movie Night will be May 17th, after the PTSA general meeting. Kids get to vote on the movie they want to see for family movie night! Check back to see which movies the kids pick for future movie nights! In January the kids watched the Incredibles 2, and on Ardmore's first Movie Night of the year, the movie chosen was Despicable Me 3.  

Past Events

Value Village Clothing Drive
Holiday Purge - Date Extended until January 25th! Clean out your closets and bring your bags of textile items to donate (clothing, shoes, bedding...) to the Ardmore elementary foyer between January 11-January 25th. Collected items will be donated to Value Village, who will contribute to the Ardmore PTSA for each pound collected. For tax donation purposes, Ardmore elementary PTSA should be the designated non-profit.
WHAT: Bring all your gently used clothes, shoes, purses, towels, sheets, table linens, and other household soft goods. (The PTSA cannot accept non-textile items for this event.)
WHEN: Week of January 11-18  (Starts on Jan 11, before Movie night)
WHERE: Ardmore elementary – please do NOT take items to Value Village. Collection bins will be in the Ardmore foyer.
WHY: Your textile donation is a tax-deductible donation for you. For tax purposes, the donation value goes to Ardmore PTSA. Value Village will give the PTSA a set rate per pound for these items.
GREEN BONUS: Don’t throw all your kids’ torn sweatpants, your holey socks, or threadbare towels in the trash – they will just sit in a landfill. Instead, recycle these textiles!!! For items not in good enough shape for donation, we will have bins to collect for textile recycling. This isn’t tax deductible, but it is good for the environment. Please separate gently used donations from recyclable items.
