Information from PTA

The PTA would like to thank you for all of your support in making this year one of the most successful we have had. Our book fair sales far exceeded any we've had previously, we hit Boosterthon out of the park, the kids had a great time at the Health Fair, we started improvements in the book room, we updated some technology, we finished the tire space outside, the Talent Show was said to be the best ever... the list goes on. We need your help to continue this success. We are struggling to fill our board positions and chair positions for next year. As teachers, you get to know the parents who are in your classroom and helping around the school. You know who is dependable and easy to work with. Those are the people we need in some leadership roles. Could you take a minute to send us the name of anyone you think might be a good fit to chair an event or to be a part of the board for next year? We are especially looking for a General VP, some at large positions, nominating committee members and potentially VP's of Fundraising, Service and Programs. Contact the president, Judy Dillman.

The session for parents will be held in the cafeteria from 5:30-6:00pm (maybe 6:15pm) followed by a short tour of the building/visiting classrooms. We need your help! Some of the rising kindergarten students will come with their families and we need volunteers to provide childcare in the media center from 5:15pm - approximately 7pm (probably done earlier than this).
