This blog represents my opinions and my opinions alone, and certainly doesn't represent the collective thoughts of any of the Boards or organizations that I serve on. Unfortunately I make all sorts of miistakes, I'm a picky eater, I can't sing and I just recently found out I have been spelling certain words in my vocabulary wrong my entire life. That being said, I still continue to muddle ever onward. Welcome.

Some Updates From The Monona Elementary PTO.

Hi, PTO parents. A few items:

1. Conferences are this week and next. Monona PTO serves dinner to teachers, who don't have time to go home/out before conferences start. We have a few open salad spots at Maywood and quite a few at Winnequah. Please contact Jennifer Kahl ( for Maywood info. The following are the open slots at Winnequah:

For Thursday March 10:
Two salads
Two desserts
One fruit tray
One veggie/dip tray

For Wednesday March 16:
One main dish
Two salads
Two desserts
One fruit tray
One veggie/dip tray

Main dishes can be things like chili or sloppy joes or even a lunchmeat tray from the grocery store. If you can donate anything, please contact Kim Haefner at

2. Pizza Oven gift card order forms went home last week. We are not doing an Uno's pizza sale this year. Please consider buying a gift card. The $25 cards only cost $20! It's practically Groupon.
3. Any gardeners out there? We have a few parents who are looking into starting a school garden. If you want to get involved, contact Chris Marsh at

4. New event: Door Creek Golf Course is hosting a Family Fun Day for Monona and Cottage Grove PTOs on Saturday April 30 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mark your calendars! More details will follow. If you want to help with the event, please contact Brian Holmquist at

5. Market Day orders are due Saturday, March 12 at 11 p.m. For offerings and order forms, visit

6. Thank you to everyone who participated in Monona PTO's Culver's Night. We made $401. Thanks, Cathy Bernards, for coordinating.

7. SOS continues. We've raised nearly $2000. It would be great to double that by year's end. If you have not made a donation, please consider one. Make checks payable to Monona Grove Education Foundation. Put Monona PTO in the subject line and drop the checks off at school.
