PTA YEAR IN REVIEW
We are already halfway through the year! Let's take a look at all we've accomplished thus far:
We welcomed 635 students and their families back to school with Dog Day, had coffee at the flag pole and fun at food truck night. Room parents, Art Docents and volunteers have created wonderful memories at Halloween parties, through monthly art work lessons and weekly afterschool enrichment programs. Fourth graders earned an extra lunch recess by collecting the most BoxTops! 100 people gathered in the gym for movie night and laughed at the Smurfs. The membership learned about Emergency Preparedness and math strategies at the October General Membership meeting and teachers enjoyed a delicious luncheon to celebrate their birthdays. To round out the events and programs, we attended the Legislative Assembly in Olympia, celebrated at least nine different countries and several live performances at Heritage Night and viewed art work from 44 Reflections entries!
All of this PLUS, membership approved teacher grants! Lots of teacher grants.
This is no small feat for just 400 members and meeting less than 80% of our fundraising goal.
You should be very proud as a parent and for the opportunities yet to come! While some of you volunteer in the lunchroom, others assist with spelling tests or donating time in the library, on Paw Patrol or seated on the PTA Board; there truly is a place for everyone. We are very thankful for your support in your child's elementary school experience and we hope you find a way to be involved in whatever capacity you can contribute going forward.
The role of PTA President has been rewarding for many reasons and I can't wait for the next 90 days to make a difference, advocate for the betterment of student education and grow our community engagement. There is work to be done, funds to raise and fun to be had. I hope you will join me. We need you. The soonest opportunity is at our
General Membership Meeting, January 18th.
