Dear MOE Families,
Welcome to Mandarin Oaks Elementary where we are “Riding the Wave of Success” into our 2016/2017 school year! I would like to introduce myself, my name is Cassie Lottman and I am the PTA President for this year. I have 2 children here at MOE, one in 4th grade and one in 2nd grade. This is my third year on the PTA board and I am very excited for this school year. Now to tell you a little about MOE PTA.
The PTA board was hard at work over the summer preparing and planning some new events and programs. We have decided to continue with some of our amazing programs; like Spirit Nights, Movie Nights, Father/Son Social, Daddy/Daughter Dance, 4th & 5th grade social, and more. We also have some new events to add this year; such as a Fall Festival, Mother/Child social, a Read-A-Thon Fundraiser and more.
We cannot do all of these programs and events without your help. Please consider joining PTA today for only $5 per adult membership. Anyone can join: Mother, Father, Grandparent, Aunt, Uncle, neighbors, etc. The more the merrier! Every membership counts towards your child’s class percentage. If they reach 100% membership the class will receive an ice cream party at the end of the school year.
I know that when you hear PTA you think volunteering, but it’s not just about volunteering. Joining PTA helps us give back to the school. With memberships we have purchased whiteboards, playground equipment, laptop carts, projectors, TVs, your child’s planner, and much more. By joining PTA you are not only supporting the school and the community, but you are supporting your child as well.
We do welcome and encourage you to volunteer. Not only do the children love seeing you at the school, but it is such an amazing and rewarding experience. We have several opportunities throughout the year that we will need help. Please let us know if you would like to volunteer.
We take great pride in our teachers, staff and families here at MOE and if PTA can be of any help or if you have any questions please feel free to contact me. I hope that this school year is a wonderful experience for your family.
