PTA Membership


As many of you know, each year you are asked to join the PTA during the registration process and then multiple times during the year.


 In an effort to simplify our membership process, for the upcoming 2017-18 school year, PTA membership will not be linked with registration. Instead, to become a PTA member, you will be asked to join through our A to Z on-line directory process.


In early September, each family will receive an email with their login credentials to the digital directory. Once you log into the directory, you will be asked to confirm your personal information, join the PTA and pay your membership dues -- all through the A to Z Directory.


Details about this process will be provided at the beginning of the school year. If you have any questions right now, please contact Alla Block and Sally Claffey at

Car Wash for the Debra Gelfand Fund


CAR WASH at Attea to benefit the Debra Gelfand Fund


Wednesday, May 31 from 3:15-4:30 p.m.


The Attea Student Council has planned an after school car wash on Wednesday, May 31, 3:15-4:30. The donations/proceeds will benefit the Debra Gelfand Fund. Please mark this date on your calendars so that you can be a car wash customer! Spread the word!


The Debra Gelfand Fund supports families in need in District 34. Debra Gelfand, mother of six sons, was an active parent volunteer in Glenview District 34. She had a strong belief that parents should be involved in school activities. Debra provided many gifts and monetary contributions to the schools and gave countless hours of her time to the district. She died on July 4, 1990 at the age of 37 from cancer. This fund was established in Debra's memory to carry on her belief that it is important to help families in need.

Book Swap at Attea on June 1st


Attea Middle School is sponsoring its sixth annual Book Swap for all grade levels on June 1 and we need your help. It's the perfect time for our students to load up on books to read over the summer. With this in mind, students are encouraged to bring in gently used fiction or non-fiction middle school level books they no longer want or need. Please bring them to Mrs. Horban (B304), Mrs. Felman (B305), the LRC, or the Office by May 31.


For each book brought in, the student will receive a ticket to use to swap for a different book they want to read on June 1. For example, if a student brings in 3 books, they receive 3 tickets to exchange for 3 books to take home to read. The Attea School-wide Book Swap will take place on June 1, 2017, in the cafeteria, during all three lunch periods and during all XBlocks. 


Parent Volunteers are needed to help with the Swap on June 1:   Sign up here.


WHAT AN OPPORTUNITY! WHAT AN EVENT! Thanks for helping Attea Middle School make our 6th annual Book Swap a success and getting books in the hands of our students over the summer!


Happy reading!

Diane Horban, Laura, Nekola, and Jenny Felman
