2019-2020 Class Parties Payment
The PTA helps with the class parties by collecting money, organizing the room parents and handling all reimbursements.
This year, we are asking to please send in your onetime class party donation of $12.00 cash or check (payable to Smith PTA) to cover all three class parties for the year. These include the Winter Ball, Valentine’s Day Party, & the End of the Year Party. You can also pay online https://www.smithpta.net/shop
Please disregard this reminder if you have already paid. If you haven’t, please pay as soon as possible as it helps the Room Parents to plan out the three parties for our kids.
If you have any questions or concerns about this, please contact Katie Augustine, PTA Treasurer: email email@example.com
