Parent Involvement Matters

Our next PTA meeting has been rescheduled for Thurs., Nov. 15. WE WILL NOT MEET TONIGHT. Dinner and childcare (ages 3 and up) are provided. Dinner begins at 5:30 p.m. The meeting will begin at 6 pm. Please RSVP HERE! PTA meetings are open to the entire school body. In an effort to decrease waste, we encourage families to bring their own dishes and napkins. 

If you've offered to volunteer with the PTA and have not heard from us, it is because we have several empty leadership positions including a Volunteer Coordinator. Other committees that are currently non-existent until we find a leader are Green Team, Uniform Exchange, New Parent Liason, and Spirit Wear. Really, if there's any way you want to help, we can use you. Email Leslie for more info.

Thanks go to Coach Lanning for assembling our second soccer goal, which the PTA purchased with money that you all raised! A fifth grader reported that "kids are playing soccer like crazy now". If anyone has unused soccer balls or basketballs sitting around, please send them in for use at recess. If you are interested in helping the PTA with future Health and Wellness projects, please email Leslie
