I’m gonna find you all through the room-parent network this time just to keep everyone right where I want them — off-balance and just a tad seasick…
1. You guys are on top of Spring program-registrations, right? Registrations close on Friday, 1/20, at midnight. Anyone requesting special accommodation for a late registration will be required to complete an obstacle course, American-Ninja-style, before any exceptions can be made. Please visit florispta.org to register.
2. OF NOTE, if your progeny is in grades 1-3, please consider registering for our Touching Heart program. This is a wonderful, community-service-based program which provides an opportunity for kids to make a tangible impact on local, national and in some cases, global scales. Whether preparing meals for area homeless-shelters, or skyping with like-aged kiddos globally in order to increase breadth of societal understanding, the kids learn a great deal in this program, and I cannot recommend it strongly enough.
3. Upcoming dates:
1/26 — Spirit Night (Chipotle) — details forthcoming
2/7 — PTA Membership meeting
2/16 — Science Fair
2/24 — Movie Night!!!
3/10 — Bingo Night!!
4. The PTA’s nominating committee is beginning to bubble, primordial-ooze-style, from the depths of my desk somewhere. If you’d like to nominate anyone for the PTA Board next year, or if you’d like to step forward and volunteer, please let me know. Otherwise, I’m going to start chasing down people myself!!!
But in all seriousness, ours is an extremely inclusive PTA — nobody’s worried about seniority and prior experience is NOT a requirement. If you want to be involved and make a big impact on your child’s education, this is a great way to do it. P.S. Dads are invited!!! :) We have the foundation in place for a strong board next year, but we still need YOUR participation. Please consider it…
