“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.” ~Elizabeth Andrew
We had very informative PTA meeting on Tuesday. Mrs. Bruebach gave a presentation on Map scores and new classroom curriculum methods in Math and soon ELA. Mrs. Leff presented information on the Student Council and initiatives they will be working on this year. We also had a presentation from Gretchen Mungan from the Blessing in Backpack program at our school. It was a fantastic meeting with the entire executive PTA board and only 3 members present. We encourage you to get involved and attend these informative meetings. Stay tuned for parent education programs tied to our meetings with Miss Wielgolewski our school social worker. Our next meeting will be November 7th, 2016 at 7PM
