Parent Involvement Matters

A survey was sent home in this week's Wed. folders. The PTA Executive team is collecting suggestions on how to spend PTA funds. Which projects would PTA members like to explore this year? We know there are a ton of great ideas out there, so please take a few minutes and share your thoughts. Deadline for submission is Oct. 5. We will discuss your recommendations at the next PTA meeting on Thurs., Oct. 11. 

If you're not a PTA member ... what are you waiting for?! It's only $5/person annually, and you can sign up at HERE. Members can vote and have a say in how we spend the money – your money – you generously contribute at our various fundraisers through the year.

Our next PTA meeting on Thurs., Oct. 11. 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.
