"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not."
On Friday, while March was busy coming in like a lion, it was also Dr. Seuss' birthday. And the above quote is one of my favorite quotes of his, from The Lorax.
I am someone who cares. A lot. About everything. It's a blessing and a curse. But it's also why I wanted to be involved in the PTO. I wanted to help make my children's school the best it could be, to my abilities. I've seen firsthand what determined parents who want to make a measurable difference can do, and they inspire me daily.
After the tragedy in Parkland, I had a lot of parents reaching out to me, asking me what the PTO could do. Thankfully, our school district administration heard from many concerned parents as well, and are willing to discuss the issue.
Dr. Rich Gusick, Superintendent, and Mark Cataldi, Director of Assesment and Accountability and Chair of the District Safety Committee, will be visiting out PTO meeting THIS FRIDAY, at 9AM, to talk about safety in our school. They will share the measures that are in place, address parent concerns, and answer questions that parents might have.
If you are unable to attend this meeting due to a prior commitment, and have a question you would like addressed, please feel free to email them to me at email@example.com
