Each pack of school supplies include required items selected by teachers in each grade at each campus.
 

You will be able to purchase your child’s supply kit during Meet the Teacher Night Thursday, August 20th from 4-6 pm at your local campus. If for some reason you are unable to attend, your campus will have packs for sale until September 1st, pending availability.

2015 Back the Future Event

By Suzi Kennon, 2VP Programs

We know that PTA builds community by building education and taking a comprehensive approach to community success. And we know there is no commYOUnity without YOU – our members, our communities, our untapped audiences.

We want to make this time of year about more than new backpacks and new classrooms, rather by inspiring and inviting community members and leaders to back the future.
Texas PTA is inviting not only families, teachers and students, but community members of all walks of life to “back the future” by becoming a PTA member and joining in the celebration of the start of the 2015-2016 school year.

We are holding a special event to start the year off right!  The Back The Future Event will be held on Saturday, August 29, 2015, 4p.m.-8p.m., and will include carnival booths from all 18 Wylie PTAs, bounce houses, a dunk tank, food, ice cream, a pep rally with Dr. Vinson, the cheerleaders from both Wylie High and Wylie East, and much more.  The district will be helping us promote this event to all students in the district and throughout our community.  Everyone is welcome!
 
We also have several opportunities for you to sponsor this event or be a vendor!  Contact me at the email below for more information. This is a very visible way to show our community that you truly do Back The Future of all the students in Wylie ISD!  We hope you join us as we work together to make sure the children of Wylie ISD have the best educational opportunities possible.
 
Come out and celebrate the new school year and  “Back The Future!”

For more information, please contact Suzi Kennon at programs@ptawyliecouncil.com.

From the President

by Heidi PeCoy, President

It’s that time of year when summer break is coming to an end and when some parents are preparing to send their children off to school for the first, or maybe even last, time.

One of the most important things a parent can do is to be in engaged in the education of their children from elementary to high school. I encourage all of you to take the opportunity to reach out and volunteer at your student’s campus.

During the summer, the Council and local PTA units in Wylie ISD were able to attend training at Launch: Summer Leadership provided by Texas PTA. Training is an essential part of growing the PTA at the campuses. Be sure to ask your PTA what they learned from their experience.

Come join us at our Back the Future event we are having on Saturday, August 29th. Help us put the you back into CommYOUnity! Be a PTA Matey and join PTA today!
