Mark Your Calendars For The Upcoming Parent Forums!

The team leaders were surveyed to find out the dates for our upcoming Parent Forums. All grade levels will participate on the same date from 7:00 - 8:15 p.m. The expectation is to provide hands-on activities to support the parents' understanding of the math, reading, and writing indicators for the marking period. Please have the homework displayed on your grade level table. Here are the dates and times for the year:


  • Marking Period 2 - Thursday, December 11, 2014
  • Marking Period 3 - Thursday, January 15, 2015
  • Marking Period 4 - Thursday, April 16, 2015

Grade levels will be set up in the All Purpose Room, Gym, and Media Center. We will also be using the Computer Lab with the parents to complete an online survey.

The PTA Needs Staff Members To Join and Attend Meetings

Have you ever wondered what the "T" means in PTA? It means teacher, which translates to STAFF. As much as we encourage parents to be engaged with our students, we need to show how engaged we are by joining the PTA. We encourage everyone to commit by December 22nd. The majority of the $10 goes to the National PTA, but Shriver's PTA will get to keep $2 from every member that joins. The PTA needs a minimum of 24 members to be considered a group.


The PTA meetings for this school year are 6:30-7:30 p.m. and will occur on:

  • January 6, 2015
  • February 3,2015
  • March 3, 2015
  • April - No meeting (Spring Break)
  • May 5, 2015
  • June 2, 2015

There will be a sign up sheet in the workroom for staff members to sign up to attend PTA meetings. Parents would love to see you at the meetings and hear your thoughts about the topics that we will be sharing.
