Welcome Back Students & Families!

LETTER FROM PTA PRESIDENT:

Dear Students & Families,

Floris PTA is very pleased to welcome you back to an incredible new school year 2017-18. While you were away taking the summer break, the New Floris PTA Board has been busy putting together a very exciting plan for the new school year.

In this school year we have some new programs to offer and some which will continue as last school year. Due to resource constraints, we may have decided not to continue with some of the programs. Nevertheless, we have a full agenda for this school year. Here is a Floris PTA Program Guide. I want you to read the guide and find all the errors I made, and point them to me. I would be more than happy to correct my mistakes. After all, I am a human too :) fall & spring 2017 all program catalog- v1.2

WE HAVE OUR NEW SPIRIT WEAR – Wear It to show that you are “LOUD AND PROUD” to be a Floris Student, Parent, Staff Member, Teacher, Administrator, Grand Parent etc. Floris Elementary PTA Presents Spiritwear 2017-18

Students, did you say you love Chuck-e-Cheese! I am not sure about your parents, PTA definitely heard you. Guess what, we have a fun evening planned for you on September 28th, 2017. A portion of the proceeds go to PTA. Nicole Guerrero (Floris PTA – VP SSO) and I thank Heather Aboy our Spirit Committee Chair, a proud Floris Parent and PTA Volunteer for making all the arrangements.

We would like to extend a special welcome to all K-1 Students & Families. We have a Floris PTA Sponsored K-1 Pizza Party on September 7th, 2017. We will be sending you additional information soon.

As always we are looking for volunteers. Please follow this link to sign-up – https://goo.gl/P3zbDp. Even if it was for two hours, we would need you to be a part of our army of volunteers. No kidding!

I am looking forward for a great new school year for both Floris Elementary and Floris Elementary PTA.
