Greetings Longhorn Parents!
As PTA president, I would like to welcome back returning students and families! I also want to extend a very heartfelt welcome to any new SRE families! To all of you, I look forward to making 2016-2017 a fun and productive year.
To the PTA Executive board, committee chair leaders and all of our volunteers, I look forward to working with all of you this school year, some for the first time. I know we will have a great year because of the dedicated and amazing volunteers we have on the PTA.
The purpose of the PTA is to first and foremost support our students. In addition, it supports the faculty, staff, parents, and the local community. “Every Child-One Voice” is the National PTA motto and the PTA is one of the strongest voices in the educational process that directly supports our children and school. This year will be no different. Your PTA has been focused on preparing an enhanced educational environment for all of our students.
An effective and successful PTA requires the support and involvement of the parents of our students. It is vital. Your first opportunity to show support is to become a member of the Sendera Ranch PTA. We encourage each of you to show your commitment by joining. You can find more information in the membership section.
The second way to show your support will be to participate in the numerous exciting events and programs that we have planned throughout the year. You may choose to be a committee chair, committee member, or volunteer. Whatever level of participation you choose, your time and involvement will be greatly appreciated. Many parents feel that they cannot participate in the PTA because they cannot attend meetings or be at school during the day. Whether you have 30 minutes or a couple of hours in or outside of school hours, your ideas, your time, and your talents are truly needed. There are endless possibilities in ways you can help. Research shows that students whose parents are involved in their education have better grades and fewer discipline problems. We promise that the time you give to the PTA and the school will be worth your while—and fun! Please consider volunteering, it really does make a difference in the lives of all our children!
To give you an example of how your time and support benefits our school, last year PTA purchased the following items for SRE:
- 12 iPads for the library
- 90 Otterboxes for iPads
- 2 educational programs
- Breakfast with Santa
- FREE End of the Year Bash
Please contact me anytime about PTA events and activities. I am here to assist you in any way that I can. I hold this opportunity in high regard and I look forward to meeting and working with each of you!
