Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year! This year promises to be a challenging one as we are engrossed in Common Core curriculum and the controversy over high stakes testing continues. I urge you to join your building PTAs and to give your voice to advocate for our children. Together with One Voice for Excellence we can achieve great things. Make the commitment to partner with the school district and become an important part of your child's education. Whether you are starting out with a kindergartner or elementary child or if your children are in the high school, it is never too early or too late to get involved. There is always something for everyone to do whether you are a stay-at-home parent, one who works part-time or full-time. PTA will always have a need for whatever time you can give.
PTA Council will host our 2nd Legislative Breakfast this year, so check back for more information.
Please contact me if you have any questions, or if you have concerns that you would like to see addressed. If it is a personal matter, please speak first to your child's teacher, and then to your building principal. PTA is represented on committees throughout the district, so it is likely that your concern can also be bought to the attention of a district committee.
Wishing everyone a great school year for you and your children.
