FROM THE BOARD
We have had a really fantastic start to the school year! Our 6th Annual Fun Run was a huge success bringing in over $31K in donations! The PTA is very excited about all of the different items and activities that will be funded this year. We will keep you updated throughout the school year on all the ways your donations made a difference! Thank you to all of the families who came out for the Grandparents Tea. We hope everyone enjoyed the time, refreshments and the Book Fair with their loved ones. We want to extend a huge thank you to Katie Silver, Mrs. White, Stacey Donaldson, Amy Pontius and all of the parent volunteers who took the time to help.
We also have a very important message to share. Now that the redistricting process is complete for our area, we are going to be losing a very large volunteer base. Without volunteers, we CANNOT be successful, nor can we continue to provide all of the different functions and activities of our PTA. Next year, we will be losing around 90 percent of our committee chairpersons. This is a huge loss for our school. We have the ability to tackle the issue head on and we need to plan now. We are asking that if you've ever considered getting involved, now is the time. We are very lucky that we have so much time left in the school year, it will give us the chance to offer shadowing opportunities. For example, are you interested in helping plan the book fair but don't know how? You have the opportunity to work with the existing committee and they can teach you everything they know. We need to take advantage that our volunteers are still here and can teach you what they know before they move on to their new schools next year. This will aid in making the school transitions much easier for everyone. We don't want to lose programs and activities next year because we won't have the help to run them. You can make a difference. If you have questions about which committees are available and what opportunities will exist next year (hint...it's most of them!) please email email@example.com for more information. This also goes for being an elected Board Member. All positions are up for election every year, but as of this time, most, if not all positions will need to be replaced on next year's board. We hope you will take the time to learn more and get involved wherever you can!
