Thank you for supporting Teacher & Staff Appreciation week by sending in gift cards, donations, special trinkets, whole staff treats, and participating in the family edition daily ideas.

This months PTO meeting was mostly focused on roles and next steps for PTO.
Mrs. Smith has been the sole leader of PTO for the 22-23 school year. She was able to run meetings, organize events, and spoil our staff by going above and beyond. Her dedication to Truman's PTO was admirable and although she is stepping down this coming year she is committed to passing on and supporting the transition with her whole heart.
If you see Mrs. Smith around - give her a big THANK YOU for ALLLL that she has done to support Truman's PTO.
Below you will find the new leadership for Truman's PTO and the Agenda.
Please mark your calendars for Monday May 22nd @ 4:00pm for out next PTO Meeting.

The movie is rate PG but we have not viewed it yet. If you have worries about the content please make your own family decision to come or not.
We will be INSIDE in the GYM. That way the event can be rain or shine.
We will also try to have some quiet game options in the cafeteria for those family members that have trouble sitting through an entire movie - they way they don't get too loud or busy body for the others that are watching it.
You do not need to RSVP for this event - just show up!!!
