Welcome Back Rhinos
Welcome Back! As we start a new school year, your PTO board is ready to execute on BIG plans we made during our summer planning session.
We have been brainstorming new ideas to emphasize the FUN in FUNdraising! Our new VP of Fundraising, Mark Levine, has some great ideas to help bring our community together. BBQ Blowout? Wine and cheese more soothing to your palette? Bingo anyone? Stay tuned for more details. Of course, our Friends & Family campaign will continue as our biggest fundraiser. I know we can count on the generosity of our community again this year as we top off the funds needed to complete some major projects. More on those later.
I want to thank all the parents that responded to our PTO meeting survey. (You can still get your input in here!) The board will be analyzing the results and trying to incorporate as many suggestions as possible.
One change is the format of our general meetings. Beginning with the meeting of Sept. 17, we are moving the meeting time to 7 p.m., but adding a social period from 6:30-7 p.m. and inviting different groups of teachers. There will be food for sale for class fundraising, and multiple speakers to accommodate different class levels.
However, the first meeting on Thursday this week will keep the old timing with a brief introduction prior to this week’s open house. That means that we will kick off at 6 p.m.
Hope to see you there, and again, Welcome Back!
