President’s Message

Fall is on its way and so is FIELD DAY

Thank you to all who came to the September 17th General Membership meeting.  We had a number of new faces and it’s fabulous to see new parents getting involved.  Our organization relies on our engaged parent community.

FIELD DAY 🐾will be held this year on October 9th.  A lot of you will be there putting in the extra mile taking photos 📷, handing out oranges 🍊 and chaperoning little ones to the nurse’s office 👩‍⚕️.  I know many people love field day 🏆.  The move to the fall allows this day to really shine 🌟.

As one would expect from our local PTA, our fall 🍂 programming is robust.  We’ve got book clubs 📚coming in October, the holiday boutique 🛍️ in November and let’s not forget the kickoff dates for our Wednesday lunches (Bagels 🍩 on 9/26, Pizza 🍕on 10/3, Ice Cream 🍦on 10/19).

October 26th will mark our latest visit from the Wizards 🏀.  If you haven’t gotten a ticket yet don’t delay, we’re going to sell out.

With our new ‘incentive program’ 🎟️ in place, I hope to see many of you at our November 20th meeting.  If you aren’t sure what I’m talking about ask a friend who attended our September meeting.  You don’t want to miss out on all the fun. To keep informed please plan to attend PTA meetings scheduled as follows: 9/17, 11/20, 1/15, 3/5, 4/23, 6/11.

Let the fall games begin,

Kate Booth
