Tomorrow is Spring Picture Day…lets hope the weather holds.
Next, Honorary Service Nominations are due. Please submit your nominations no later then tomorrow, March 3rd. It is so sad that the envelope that holds the nominations is so empty, especially since I know you must know some extraordinary people at Madera that have volunteered to help make our school and its students the very best it can be. So please, if you know of that one volunteer, take a moment to nominate them. You can even do it anonymously if you wish or email Maria Henderson at email@example.com. Help the PTA recognize those special some ones…thank you.
Tuesday, March 8th is our Association Meeting and election of the 2011/2012 Executive PTA Board.

Jr. Olympics is just a month away and I know our teams are working hard to bring back Madera the gold!!! So stop by Royal High on Saturday, April 2nd. It will be going on all day and I know the kids would love to a large cheering section. Go Madera!!!!
I have been asked to find out if any parents would like to volunteer and help with our Math and Science Fun Night that is scheduled for Friday, April 15th. Volunteers are needed to help run math games or perform experiments for students. For more information please contact Pamela Mikita at email@example.com.
Finally, I just want to thank all those parents that have given their time to volunteer for the various events that the PTA hosts. I know it’s not easy, trust me I know, but it is all worth it. Especially when just one student comes by and says thank you because that’s what it is all about…those kids. So on behalf of the PTA, Madera and its students, we thank you.
Have a fabulous evening and I hope to see you soon.
