On behalf of the Floris Parent Teachers Association, it is our pleasure to welcome you to our wonderful community! We are looking forward to a great year filled with fantastic events, community building activities and, most importantly, supporting our kids and teachers so they can continue to attain excellence in education.
You are important to our PTA. Your presence and involvement in your child’s development and education are critical factors to school success and student achievement. When parents are engaged in their child’s education, students benefit in many ways including (but not limited to):
- Higher grades and test scores
- Better attitudes and behavior
- Better school attendance
- Greater likelihood of graduating from high school
- Better chance of enrolling in postsecondary education.
The primary way to make this the best year for your family and our community is to join the PTA! This is your chance to be a member of a great organization that funds many of the opportunities you see around campus. Your support enhances your child’s experience at our school and we want to hear from you. When you join the PTA you are not obligated to attend all meetings nor volunteer; you can participate as much or as little as you would like or able, finding a perfect balance that is right for you.
The next way to make it the best school year ever is to volunteer. By joining and volunteering in the PTA or donating to Friends of Floris there is no better way to get connected. Know what’s happening at Floris, meet other parents and teachers, build rapport, plus share ideas, concerns, and experiences. By volunteering you put your skills, hobbies, and interest to work. Simply put WE NEED YOU!
However you choose to participate – we appreciate you and your effort. This school year we are working to continue the tradition of providing great student and family programs that combine fun, enrichment, and academics. Our wonderful PTA Board members have been working tirelessly all summer to bring us options to have activities in the pipeline.
Go Eagles !!!
