Legacy Tiles
Wed, Oct 12, 2022
Start: 3:30 PM - End: 5:00 PM
Applegate School

The Applegate PTO is very excited to announce a special event for our 5th graders.  It is called Leave a Legacy Tile Project.  You may have walked into other Freehold Township schools and noticed tiles up along the hallways that students have created.  That is exactly what we are doing.  You may see some of last year’s tiles on the wall around our media center.

The PTO will be hosting two days for our Fifth Graders to prepare their tiles.  The dates are October 12th and 13th. There will be one session on each day; 3:30pm - 5:00pm. 

We will be drawing with bright markers on the paper form (available shortly) in the gym.  Once complete, the drawings will be digitally transferred to a ceramic tile and installed in the building.  *A parent MUST be in attendance for supervision.  If no parent is present, your child will not be able to attend, however, they can always design their tile at home and bring into the office in a folder (please do not fold) marked Legacy Tiles with $10 cash or check made payable to “Applegate School PTO”.*

There is also be an Online Shop to purchase Mugs, Mousepads, Tumblers and a number of other items with your child(ren)’s design on it.   This makes great gifts for the holidays. 

If interested, please refer to our Forms Section, print same and bring this form with you on the day you wish to attend with payment.   Again if you are unable to attend, please feel free to design your tile at home and return to the office, as directed above.  Please email Maria Baralus to confirm which session you plan on attending, so we can accommodate everyone.  If you have any other questions, please contact Maria Baralus at mariab7579@gmail.com
