The first day of school is right around the corner! This year there will be new faces and new activities at North Elementary. We are very excited to welcome new North students and families from Chace and to learn about Chace traditions and activities that the PTO can incorporate. We also welcome our new Vice Principal Mr. Anthony Branco. North Elementary is a wonderful school with many dedicated teachers, staff, parents, and children. Mr. Branco is a great addition to the North family.
We invite you to our Meet and Greet for Mr. Branco so that all students and families can welcome him and meet teachers and other students. Principal Mrs. Elaine Sabra and Mr. Jeffrey Schoonover, our new superintendent, will also be there. The Meet and Greet will be held on Wednesday, August 27th at 2:00 P.M. at the playground. Freeze pops will be served. Hope you can be there!
Please consider joining us at our first PTO meeting on Tuesday, August 26th at 5:00 P.M. at the North Elementary library. Babysitting will be provided (if you need to bring your child or children). Monthly PTO meetings are the third Tuesday of the month at 6:30 P.M.
Also, on Tuesday, August 26th at 6:00 P.M., Mr. Schoonover will be hosting his first Parents' Forum in the mini auditorium at North Elementary for all parents at all schools. Our PTO meeting will be finished by 6:00 P.M. so that you may participate in the forum. Please let others know about these events.
You do not have to attend PTO meetings to become involved. There are numerous ways to volunteer, and we always need help! The PTO board includes myself, Carl Souza (Vice President), Susan Wright (Secretary), and Michelle Daulphin (Treasurer). There are many committees that need volunteers, including the new Reading Incentive Program, Spirit Wear, Bingo Night, and the Memory Book. We also hope to raise money to enhance our playground with new equipment and a walking path. Finally, Target's Take Charge of Education rewards program has begun (see Target website to register your Red Card). Please feel free to contact us any time with your ideas or any questions and check this website for updates. Enjoy the rest of the summer.
