Hello Robertson Families,
So many new and exciting things are happening at Robertston this year!!! I am so excited to be your PTA President for the 2017-2018 school year! Let me start by introducing myself. I am a mother of 2. My son, Mitchell, who will be in 3rd grade this year at Robertson and my daughter, Blayklee, who is 3 months old. I am a working mom, but also find it very important to be present at the school just as much as possible. The best way I can do that is to be involved with the PTA! This will be my 4th year on the PTA Board and I know how vital PTA can be to a school! As a parent, I know that PTA helps me stay connected and involved in my child's education.
For those that do not know much about PTA, let me tell you. PTA stands for Parent-Teacher-Association. Our main goal is to support the teachers and most importantly the students of Robertson. Together we are committed to helping every child reach his or her potential. Robertson PTA offers parent education, programs for the health and well-being of children, programs designed to inspire creativity in the arts and environment, and providing supplies necessary to keep our children engaged in the learning process.
Here is just a small list of some of the things your PTA does for Robertson: :)
-Popsicles with Principal, Tears & Cheers, Teacher/Staff Luncheons, Book Fairs, Family Picnic, Fundraising for school enhancements, Class Parties, Spring Dance, Art Reflections, Teacher Appreciation week, Field Day, Student Assemblies to develop character & values, Provide school supplies, Technology, Guided Reading Books, Diversability Education, Awards and Scholarships, Spirit Sticks... The list goes on and on...
All of these events CANNOT be possible without our PTA!! Your small 1 time membership due allows us to pay for the events listed above. So who can join PTA? YOU CAN!! Anyone can be a member of PTA!! Full –time, part-time, stay-at-home, moms, dads, grandparents, and community leaders. There is something for EVERYONE! We live in a very busy society. However, we get the opportunity to make the place for our children the best it can be! We totally understand that some of you may only be able to contribute monetarily and that is great! However, if you are ever available to volunteer even just 30 minutes of your day or evening we would love to have you too! You can find out more about our PTA by going to our website. www.robertsonpta.org Click on the Our PTA tab to join. The website is updated often with upcoming events and information so please check periodically. Like us on Facebook. http://www.facebook.com/RobertsonElementary.
I encourage you to join PTA and I challenge you to set up and volunteer! :) This is a great way to make new friends, meet new families, and let your child know how much you care about their school! If you have any questions and/or would like to get immediately plugged in please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thanks so much,
Robertson PTA President 2017-2018
