President’s Message

The PTA is in thank you mode, and prepping for fall!

As we wind down our year, in May and June we do a lot of thanking you all for your help.  We start with Teacher Appreciation and roll from there…

This month we will thank our teachers for supporting our children with a Teacher Appreciation Luncheon, followed by our Mother’s Day Plant & More sale, where we help our little ones thank their moms.  In June we host a breakfast for our Crossing Guards, our Lunch Aides and our Custodial Staff.  Then on June 18th we have our final meeting and associated Thank You Dinner for any PTA member who wants to join us.  Spring is a lovely, thankful time of the year.

In May we also begin preparations for 2019-2020.  The PTA attends Kindergarten orientation on May 14th, we open our 2019-2020 membership drive, sales of school supply boxes, applications for class parent and sign ups for volunteer spots.

As part of that prep we look for to fill committee chair positions.  Some of the positions we are looking to fill for the 2019-2020 school year include:

* Bagel Lunches (1-2)
* Holiday Boutique (2)
* Invention Convention (1)
* Memory Book (1)

If you would like to chair a committee or are interested in learning more please feel free to reach out to anyone on the executive team.   We are happy to answer any questions you have about the roles noted above.

SAVE THE DATE: As noted above our last meeting of the year is held on June 18th in the MPR.  We host dinner at 7pm followed by the swearing in of new officers.  We will also be handing out awards for Reflections, the Science Fair and hosting a raffle for fun prizes – don’t forget to bring those ‘incentive program’ tickets you have been collecting at PTA meetings to the June dinner! We have some fun prizes to give away!!

See you all at various thank you events and of course on June 18th.

OPS PTA President
