May 6, 2013
May begins with celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week. I encourage our families to take a moment and write a note to a few of your teachers thanking them for supporting and loving our children at Thoreau. Our generous Hospitality Team led by co-chairs Brandi Brummer, Lynne Turner and Amy Vernon are coordinating a special luncheon and providing other goodies for our staff on behalf of the PTA.
Join our Wednesday morning Garden Club and beautify our courtyard and meet other parents. We trim, weed, build stone walls, refill bird feeders and have fun! We are looking for a volunteer knowledgeable about pond maintenance. Thank you to Liz DiFrancisco our coordinator.
We are entering the season of end of year festivities! With a focus on the 8th Grade Dance and plans for next year! We are looking for parents to join our 2013-14 PTA Board next year in the following positions: Membership, Directory Co-Chair (work with a parent who co-chaired this year), Hospitality Co-chair, Volunteer Coordinator (to work with provided lists to coordinate picture day and health screening day volunteers), Landscape, Reflections, 7th Grade Dinner and 8th Grade Dance Chair. The PTA Board will vote on our 2013-14 Slate of PTA officers on May 23 at a luncheon hosted by NFCU.
