First, we have a new website. There are two ways to check it out. You can go to the Madera Elementary School website and click on Madera PTA or you can go directly to madera-pta.org. It has information regarding our Back to School Social on the 15th, our Parent Meet & Greet Breakfast on the 19th and the calendar for the school year. It also has a list of our new board along with their contact information.
Next, there are still positions available on the board. We need volunteers to head up the Variety Show, organize the Harvest Festival games and/or run the Harvest Festival Creepy Classroom. If you would like to find out more about these opportunities, please let me know.
Speaking of Harvest Festival, the committee will be meeting on Tuesday the 13th. If you would like to be a part of the committee, let me know and I will give you the info on where we are meeting.
Our first PTA board meeting is scheduled for Wednesday the 14th at 10am in P3. If you would like to find out what is going on with your PTA and our plans for the school year, please stop by. Immediately following the meeting, we will be collating back to school packets. If you have an hour or two to spare, we really could use your help.
Then on Thursday the 15th, the PTA will be on hand during kindergarten orientation, scheduled for 10am. We will be selling spirit wear (new design this year) and memberships to the PTA. If you can’t make, it later that day, at 5pm, the PTA will host it’s annual Welcome Back to School Social. TuTu’s Hawaiian Shaved Ice will be on hand selling tasty treats. We will have spirit wear available to buy and our membership team will be on hand to help you sign up for the PTA. We will also post the class lists for the coming school year. We hope you’ll stop by.
Finally, our Parent Meet & Greet Breakfast will be held on Monday the 19th right after drop off in the MPR. Stop by, enjoy some yummy treats and good conversation. It’s a great way to play catch up with some old friends and perhaps make some new ones too.
I am so excited for the new year to begin. Your PTA has so many wonderful things planned for you and your children. It’s going to be an amazing year!
