Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! Your PTA has a wonderful year planned, but we need everyone’s participation to be successful. Go online to www.pointersrunpta.org for our ONE STOP way to start the year. With one form on our website you can do ANY or ALL of the following in just a few minutes:
Join the PTA - Whether or not you are able to volunteer, please join so that we can have a louder voice within the county, the state, and the nation as we advocate for our children. Every membership counts!
Donate - Do you want to sell candy or gift wrap? Neither do we!!!! With our successful “Pointers Paw Patron Program” we have been able to with the exception of direct donations. Nothing to sell, nothing to buy. But we can’t do it without you! Your donation stays with us 100% and funds all of the educational and fun activities we plan for our children, staff, and families. Give what you can but the suggested donation is $50 per child. See the back of this flyer for a list of the activities we have planned for the year. Our fundraising goal this year is $30,000.
Volunteer - Joining the PTA does not obligate you to volunteer but we WANT YOU to volunteer and it’s fun! We cannot make our programs and events happen without the help of our dedicated families. There are lots of opportunities to help – at school or from home, on weekdays, evenings, or weekends. We have something to fit everyone’s schedule! Research has proven that children do better when their parents are involved both at home and in school. Volunteering at school is one way to get involved. It’s also a great way for you to connect with other parents, teachers, and school administrators, as well as stay up-to-date on all of the current school news.
Be Included in the Student Directory - Every PRES family gets one! You will use this directory over and over for school information, birthday parties, and play dates. If you want your information included in the student directory you must complete the online form by September 26, 2016. Do it at www.pointersrunpta.org!
Buy PRES Fan Gear – NEW THIS YEAR! Order PRES Fan Gear (car magnets, lanyards, water bottles, pencils) online. You can order any time of year, but save a step and do it now as part of your sign up process.
Be Informed - We plan things that you won’t want to miss! When you join you will automatically receive our weekly PTA e-newsletter, but our website includes photos, detailed information, and important dates. Check out the website for the current list of meeting dates and events.
We are looking forward to a great year and appreciate your support. Together we make PRES a great success!
