Nothing from July 22, 2019 to August 22, 2019.
Announcements about upcoming events
The Q300 PTA will hold our annual back-to-school picnic on Sunday, August 25, from 3-6pm in Rainey Park. Please join us in welcoming new families and getting together to celebrate the start of a new school year. This is a casual, bring-your-own food and drink event. An RSVP helps us get an idea of how many people will be attending for planning purposes, but is not necessary--just show up and have a good time. If you can help out with the event, thank you! Feel free to sign up for one of the volunteer shifts listed here. We look forward to seeing familiar faces and meeting new members of the Q300 community.

Does your child grow like a weed? Does your child's uniform pants, which seemed so big at the beginning of the year, now fit like shorts? Well, you can help defray the expense of buying new uniforms by participating in the Q300 uniform swap.
- Drop-Off Uniforms
Please donate any uniform in good condition that your child has outgrown via your child's backpack. Teachers will collect the uniforms and send them to designated bins in the lower and upper division campuses. Please make sure all clothing is laundered. We will collect clothing through the last day of school.
For those with kindergarten and first grade students, please send in your outgrown uniforms by Friday, June 14, so that we can sort them and make them available for the Welcome Breakfast for new admits.
- Pick-Up Uniforms
Please pick up any uniform that may fit your child for next year. We will set up a uniform table at various PTA events, including the PTA general meeting on Thursday, June 20 and the Q300 summer picnic on Sunday, August 25. Please consider making a donation for any clothing you take, and all proceeds will benefit the PTA.
