Announcements from the PTA President – 01.19.2017

Thursday, January 19, 2017
hi!

so there’s a lot of presidential news floating around this week.  i still say that new guy can keep his job — i like my constituency way better.  and i wanted to make you all aware of a few important dates:

1.  PROGRAM REGISTRATIONS CLOSE TOMORROW AT MIDNIGHTAs in 1/20/17 at 11:59pm.  As in I’m turning off my computer at midnight and if people aren’t signed up, I’ll try to get to your request when I check email again sometime in 2018!  But in all seriousness, please look over the course offerings and if there’s anything that appeals to your families, now’s the time.

2.  Of particular note, I’d like to remind everyone of Touching Heart, our program which promotes understanding of and interest in public service, and Floris Scientists, if your children are curious about scientific sorts of things.  Both are OUTSTANDING programs, both are intended for younger children (Grades 1-3 for TH, Grades K-3 for science), and both have slots available.  I can speak, with personal experience, to the quality of both of these programs so please take a look if you haven’t already.

3.  Spirit Night has been MOVED to February 7, where it will be combined with our PTA Membership Meeting for the month.  I’m told we’re on for 5-8pm (for burritos, not for listening to me talk), and we’d like ALL of our families to come out that evening.  Chipotle has a very generous program for school fundraisers, so your support will definitely be felt.  Plus?  Burritos!

4.  Day of 100 Dads!  The date is March 10, 2017.  A bunch of you have been asking me for the date so you can plan ahead — here it is.  I’ve got inquiries out to the teachers to give us time slots and activities, so please pencil this date into your calendars and we’ll have information soon.

5.  Bingo Night is also on 3/10, so that’ll be a fun day all around.

6.  I flunked chronology in elementary school, so the Science Fair is on 2/16, Movie Night is on 2/24, and… that’s about it for the next couple of months.

Thanks for reading, please sign up for Touching Hearts and Floris Scientists, and come find me at Chipotle on 2/7!  (Don’t worry — the PTA meeting will be somewhere between brief and nonexistant)  :)

Announcements from the PTA President – 01.14.2017

Hi everybody!!

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…
