Welcome back to school! PTA is excited to get started on the rest of the school year. We are writing to let you know about a variety of ways to get involved in our school this winter and spring. We know everyone is busy and it is hard to add another commitment to your list of “to-do’s” but we have lots of ways to make a difference– whether you have a minute, an hour, or a day to commit (or even want to help organize a whole initiative or event)!
Moms and Muffins (Jan 17 at 7:45 a.m.), Dad’s and Donuts (Jan 31 at 7:45 a.m.)
An annual student favorite– they get to bring you to school for a quick breakfast before starting the school day. If you’re coming, would you be willing to bring a dozen muffins or donuts or some juice along with you? Please sign up here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0b4aaea72ea1f85-moms
