Now the AES PTSA is focusing on their membership drive dubbed “The Roadrunner Race” and the Halloween Carnival on Friday, October 20th from 5:00-9:00pm. Click here to read the full article.
Boulder Oaks Elementary PTA has had a great start to the school year. We had a huge increase in parent volunteers and kicked off the year with a successful family night and an amazing BMX bike character building assembly. We are looking forward to a year full of providing educational resources and programs to our students and their families.
Shadow Hills Elementary School has had a fun and exciting beginning of the 2017-2018 school year. This is the first year as an all-Spanish Immersion school. The month of October is a great month for our PTA. In the next few weeks we are redoing the playground surface. We have our Fall Festival coming up on October 27 from 6-9 pm so our PTA has been busy working with the community to make this year great! Our membership drive is still thriving and we are so excited to have so many great parents helping this year. Our Shadow Hills PTA is motivated and enthusiastic for the duration of the school year.
CREEKSIDE EARLY LEARNING CENTER PTA is excited about doing great things for the youngest members of the District, the Creekside Cubs. The Back to School PTA BBQ was a huge success.
