President's Letter

Hi Eagles!

I am honored to serve English Landing as the PTA President for the 2022-2023 school year. It's been an interesting last few years, and we're so excited to return to a more normal school experience this year!

We are so thankful for the amazing families that have given (and are giving) of their time and efforts to serve our school and our students.

With your support, the Eagle Dash fundraiser was a success and we raised enough to fund field trips and purchase a Gaga Ball Pit for the school!

The next PTA meeting will be on Monday, November 7, 2022 at 6:30pm in the EL Media Center.

If you haven't already signed up, we invite you to join our PTA family to support English Landing's students and staff for an amazing year!

Your $10 membership helps purchase classroom resources, provide EL shirts to all students, and so much more!
