PTO: Parent/Teacher Organization

We held our first PTO meeting of the 2010/2011 school year last Thursday.  We had 5  parents, 5 teachers and Felma (our Head Start Liason) participate in the meeting.  The parents and teachers discussed what topics they would like to focus on during this school year's PTO meetings, ideas for speakers and fundraising.  A regular meeting day and time (2nd Tuesday Wednesday of every month at 5 pm) was decided upon and PTO officers were elected.  

President:  Shelli G.
Vice President:  Theresa M.
Secretary:  Mandy C.
Treasurer:  Amanda G.

                     Next Meeting Date and Time:  November 10, 2010  5:00 pm  
If you weren't able to join us this month, please make time to join us next month!  We have free childcare for all children in the family, snacks and/or dinner, a "make-it-take-it" craft for you to do with your child and time to spend with other parents and teachers!  What a wonderful way to get involved with your child's school!  

Our November meeting will focus on a brief overview of our curriculum (Handwriting without Tears, Growing with Math, Little Treasures and Second Step).  So, if you would like to know what your child is learning during the school day; if you would like to know what "Mat Man" is or what books we are reading or math concepts we work on in Preschool this would be a great meeting to attend!   So come join us for our November meeting!
