A note from your PTSA president

As the new PTSA president I would like to welcome you to the new school year! The PTSA (Parent Teacher Student Association) exists to help staff support our students not only in the classroom, but also within our school community.

Middle school is brief and brings along many new experiences. It’s a time of transition for both students and their families. This is a time when students become more independent, but what does that mean for the parents? It means we still stay active in their lives - we just approach it differently. PTSA helps you remain active in your child’s school by providing opportunities for you to become a PTSA member, attend our family socials, support our fundraisers, volunteer at PTSA events & functions, and celebrating our staff members.

This year we are adding student representatives to our board. The students will have a voice in our events and activities.

PTSA will also be introducing “Family Socials” where families are invited to not only learn about the PTSA, but also become informed & educated about our school, relevant topics e.g. students & technology, college planning, etc.), and an opportunity to meet other parents at our school. Stay tuned for more information!

Please help support your student by joining PTSA! It’s going to be an exciting year and
I look forwarding to sharing it with you

Thank you,
Patti Andrade
PTSA President
