I hope you are enjoying this lovely three day weekend…
Just a few things I wish to share with you.
I would like to thank all of you that have signed up to volunteer at our various PTA sponsored events. I am putting lists together with what each of you may have volunteered for, and passing those lists on to the people that have agreed to chair each event. You should receive word from that chairperson within a week or two to confirm that you are still interested in volunteering. If you do not hear anything within that timeframe, please let me know. For those that have signed up to be room parents or art docents, I am just waiting for the lists from the teachers, but we will have our first room parent and art docent meeting on Thursday, September 13th at 8:15am in P3. I will send a reminder to those that this pertains to once I receive the final lists.
I would now like to thank those of you who have joined the Madera PTA. If you haven’t done so, please do. Your membership is crucial to our students and school because it helps us provide the many things we do, such as music, art, educational assemblies, programs, family fun nights, books for our classrooms & library, plus so much more. And just because you join, it does not mean you must volunteer. Sure we would love you to help out when and where you can, but it is not necessary. We just ask that you join and lend your voice when it comes time to vote on the things that matter most to our school. That’s it…simple! Besides, for every person that joins, your name will be entered into a raffle. Two winners will be selected and they will each receive a $25 gift card to Target. How great is that??? You know, the holidays are just around the corner and those gift cards may just come in handy. So please join the Madera PTA. I would love to see us get 100% membership and show all of Simi Valley that Madera, our staff, students and parents are the best in town because we care about our school and its future.
Finally, we are still accepting orders for Madera Spirit Wear. Forms can be found in the office, and hopefully on the Madera PTA website. The last day to order will be September 14th. Remember, Thursdays are spirit days, so wear Madera Blue and show your school spirit.
As always, if you have any questions, thoughts or concerns, please let me or somebody on our board know. We appreciate the time and support you give our school. So thank you.
Have a wonderful rest of the day.
My sincerest thanks always,
Madera PTA President
