Their is still time to order your school supplies for the coming school year!

If you have never done this before, you will be amazed at how easy it is! Our Penny Road teachers have generated the lists! Simply click the link below to order. You have the option to add art supplies that Mrs. Gardner has requested, music supplies that Mrs. Koch has requested and you may even donate funds so that the school is able to order supplies for children in need. The deadline to order your child's school supplies for the 2018-2019 school year is June 30th!

Thank You from the PTA

That's a wrap folks! It is truly hard to believe that the 2017-2018 school year has come to an end!

As I said in the letter I sent home, I am beyond grateful for the tremendous financial support we received from our families throughout this year. Our mission as a PTA is to “Nurture all children at Penny Road Elementary and enhance their education.” With your help, we have tried and succeeded in doing just that. As a nonprofit, the PTA is expected to spend all of their funds by the end of the fiscal year which ends June 30th. With that said, families can feel confident that we, as a PTA under Mrs. Hoke's leadership, plan to do what we truly feel is best for our students and teachers. We will be applying funds towards technology upgrades, gym upgrades in the way of physical education equipment, as well as, upgrades to the building to help create the best learning environment for our students and working environment for our teachers. We also plan to make a purchase to help increase safety procedures on campus; something that is regularly at the forefront of all of our minds.


In closing, congratulations students, teachers, staff and PARENTS! We made it through another successful school year! Enjoy your summer and we will see you in August when school begins on Monday, August 27th!


Gratefully,

Amy Toland
