Dear Springman and Attea Families,
It is hard to believe how rapidly the school year is flying by. The staffs at both schools are busy preparing for the transitions, which leads us to begin to think about the transitions that will take place on our PTA Board. We have had the wonderful opportunity to serve as your PTA co-presidents for the past two years. We have accepted the position to co-chair the PTA Council President position for next year, leaving the President (co-president) position open for next year. You may find yourself in a position to want to get involved, but may be a little unsure about how to do so. Perhaps a few words of encouragement may entice you to jump on board!
Being a part of the PTA, is a great way to be connected and know what is happening in the schools. PTA functions are opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, which allows you to build a rapport and discuss issues that are on your mind. It is because of parents’ ideas that PTA seeks out information, tools, and presentations that are at the forefront of our kids’ lives. By volunteering with your PTA, you put your skills and hobbies to use for a noble cause, your kids and your community. By getting involved at your kid’s school, you will be part of the solution, in helping to make a positive change. In addition, you’ll be demonstrating to your child, the importance you place on education.
Next year, there will be several board positions available, in addition to the President (co-president), to consider To name a few; Vice President, 2nd Vice President –Volunteers and Membership, Treasurer, Fundraising Chair, Book Fair Chair, Website and e-Blast Chair, FOCUS newsletter Chair, School Board Observer and 8th Grade Graduation Chair. If you have any interest in any of the above positions or questions about what the responsibilities include, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me or another board member!
We also welcome you to stop by for a PTA Volunteer Appreciation/Meet and Greet on Thursday, March 10th from 7-9pm. Look for the invitation in the newsletter, on the website, and in other PTA and school correspondence. Know an incoming 6th grade parent? Invite them along for the evening!
We hope to see you on Tuesday, March 8th at 9:15 at Attea.
Missy Amrol and Shonne Ehrhardt
