Letter From the President

Happy New Year!

I hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday season with lots of memories, laughs, and most importantly time that you could spend together. I feel like I am always wanting time to slow down a bit, and thankfully for me it did just a little this holiday season.


Our PTA is excited to continue our mission in 2021. We have amazing programs planned for the whole family, as well as our Jag Fit fundraiser where we can continue to raise funds for our school. Please take a moment to review our newsletter for the latest information from the PTA.


One important thing I wanted to bring to your attention is that we are officially beginning our nomination process for next year's PTA Board. We are looking for Jenks parents to be a part of our PTA Nominating Committee that will help select our Slate of Officers for 2021-2022!! We will have a special election for our nominating committee on 1/14 at 6pm via zoom.


To become eligible to serve on this Nominating Committee, you need to be a member of the Jenks PTA and attend the January 14, 2021 membership meeting at 6pm (via Zoom). Please submit your information at https://tinyurl.com/yyo5odyk and attend the January 14th membership meeting. All names submitted will be included on a ballot vote at the January 14th special meeting. The five individuals with the highest number of votes, will be selected for the committee. If you would like to attend this meeting, please fill out the form below:

Anyone can attend our meetings; however, you must be a PTA member in order to vote.


As always if you have any questions or suggestions please let me know. We are looking forward to an awesome Spring semester.


For the Jaguars,

Rebecca Van Epp, Jenks PTA President

Fundraising

In just a few weeks, we will be kicking off our Jag Fit program with Booster! Our kids will participate in character education, special activities and a 35-minute dance/exercise challenge! Our goal is to raise $10,000 to help support upcoming events, future campus enhancements, and our Jenks teachers and classrooms.


We completely understand if your family is not able to financially support the school right now. This year has been a trying one. Please know that you family can still be involved by simply SHARING about our fundraiser with friends and extended family online at funrun.com. Sharing IS a way to support our school! Let’s promote healthy living by getting active and energized during this fun event!


Please be on the lookout for more details as we get closer to kickoff!

Key dates to remember:
Kickoff Day- 1/25
Jag Fit Event Day – 2/5
