Dear Springman and Attea families,
We are pleased to share that September and October continue to be action-packed months for your SPAT PTA! We kicked off our “It’s Your Choice” fall fundraiser and were blown away by all the parents and volunteers who helped make it a success. We will start soon to receive the teacher wish lists and the money raised in our fundraiser is a key component to helping us fund these great initiatives.
This month we are hosting “Turning Points,” a parent education opportunity featuring invaluable information from our principals and the GBS principal and assistant principal. It was so nice to see so many interested parents at the first morning session and we look forward to more of you attending this popular program presented in the EVENING at Attea on October 14th, at 7 p.m.
In October, we are gearing up for book fairs at both Attea and Springman. Please try to stop by during the fall conferences on Oct. 16 at both schools. But wait, we’re just getting started. We are running the Character Counts food drive during Oct. and treating our teachers and staff to lunch on conference days. Corner Bakery at the Glen is sponsoring a Dining for Dollars event on October 16 when school is out! And we're developing our school directory (for the first time, offered in electronic format to PTA members only). All families will receive the printed copy this year too.
Please join us! Our next PTA meeting is Tuesday, Nov. 10 at 9:15 a.m. at Attea. All PTA meetings are open to ALL parents. Even if you are not a committee chair and don’t hold a board position, we hope you will take the opportunity to get to know other parents and our principals, as well as learn about the programs your PTA supports at these monthly meetings.
Thanks to everyone for keeping our PTA moving along!
Shonne Ehrhardt and Missy Amrol
