SPRING FLOWER SALE 

FLOWER PICK UP:

Families who ordered plants from our Spring Flower Sale, we're so excited for you to see your beautiful plants. You MUST collect them on THURSDAY. 

Pick-up Date: Thursday, May 13th from 4pm-7pm.

Location: Macy’s parking lot

Please enter from Tremont road at the Milden Road traffic light (by Houlihans), then follow the signs to drive in front of the US Bank and up to the flower pick up drive thru by the old Macy's building. 

Pickup Instructions:

Please wear a mask and stay in your car. Volunteers will confirm your order, and load your flowers and plants in to your car for you.

If you are not able to pick up your flowers, please coordinate with another person to pick these up. 

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY: 

We can't have a successful sale without our awesome volunteers! Please sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0c4dacad2fa0f94-volunteer1

 

We need your help with the Wickliffe PTO Spring Flower Sale Pick Up on Thursday, May 13. Please sign up if you can help unload and sort 1,000+ beautiful flowers and plants from the Foertmeyer truck (1:30pm - 3:00pm) or help with pick up (3:00pm - 7:00pm).  

 

We also need wagons to cart the plants to customers' cars--please sign up if you can loan us your wagon! We will be meeting at the old Macy's parking lot in the Kingsdale Center. Please wear a mask and look for the flowers!

 

Contact Steph (stephanie.webstercheng@gmail.com), Marta (martaroberson@hotmail.com) or Nichole (Nlredinger@hotmail.com) if you have any questions.

 

 

Online ordering: 

MARK YOUR CALENDAR: The spring flower sale starts on Tuesday, March 23rd!

 

Watch for this flyer and catalogs that will be coming home with in-school students this week. Online Academy parents can also get a physical catalog too, by stopping in to the school office.

 

 

This flyer outlines a couple of changes from previous flower sales - we recommend using one order code per household to make pick up easier; and, all Foertmeyer rewards will go directly to our school, rather than awarding individuals prizes, per district wide rules. 

 

We have again chosen Foertmeyer and Sons Greenhouse to help us raise our funds for this year's campaign. After Spring Break, your student's web sale code will be sent directly to your email. You can share that link with your friends and family so that they can purchase their flowers online! 

 

Flower pickup is scheduled for May 13, 2021 at the old Macy’s building. More details coming soon!

 

 

 

 

Overview

The Beautification committee is a group of parents and students that work to make our school grounds look beautiful! 

 

During the school year, we: 

  • upkeep our gardens and planters
  • organize clean-up events
  • ensure that our planters and gardens are watered (and we look for help with this!)
  • organize the spring flower sale
  • work with community members for flower and plant donations
  • work with the district maintenance crew on improvements to our building grounds

 

 

Please check back throughout the year for updates on what is happening with our group! We will also post volunteer sign-ups and provide updates in the weekly PTO newsletter. 

 

Committee Chairs: Marta Ackley, Nichole Redinger, Stephanie Webster-Cheng

 

 

Previous Events

Fall Clean-Up/ New Nature Playscape:

Thank you to the families who helped with the Fall clean up and donated items for our new Nature Playscape; with a special shout out to Mr. Kevin Kirch - for constructing this wonderful frame, as well as always looking after our castle. We are excited to see how the students will use the space!

 

Thank you too, to everyone who came out to help paint the castle park fence. You all are amazing! The fence looks better than it has for years and will hold up through the upcoming winter months. We are so appreciative of your help!

   

 

 

WISHLIST: Do you have any nature based play items you would like to donate? As part of the Beautification cleanup, we will be creating an area where students can get creative and connect to the natural world. Items we are requesting are:

  • Different sized wood rounds and small log pieces
  • A bag of nice river rocks for one corner of the area
  • Pinecones
  • Cut sections of bamboo for hollow pieces
  • Small shovels, buckets
  • A few different sized apple crates or wire baskets 

Donations can be dropped off at school/sent to school with your child. If you have questions please contact Marta Ackley.

   

 

 

Fall Mum Sale:

We'd like to send a BIG thank you to all the families who bought mums through our Fall mum sale - we raised almost $4800 and sold almost 900 mums!
