Change to School Family Requirement
Happy Summer everyone! We are so excited to be starting our first full year in our brand new school – very soon! Parent Club is pleased to report that we have had another very successful year…. you will find out just how successful at Back to School night! This gift is the result of an incredible contribution of time and money by our amazing community of families. Your contribution to Parent Club is highly valued and essential to the success of our school.
In preparation for each school year, Parent Club considers new ways to simplify and optimize the obligations of time, money and energy spent by our families, without compromising our financial commitment to the annual operation of our school. A notable change for the coming school year is the elimination of the Gift Card program as a Parent Club fundraiser. Beginning with the 2019-2020 school year, gift cards through the Shop with Scrip program will no long be available and there will no longer be a fundraising gift card purchase obligation for families.
Parent Club will continue to sponsor two major fundraisers, Amazing Grapes in the fall and Gala in the spring. We will continue to support other “FUN”raiser events throughout the year. The parent hour opportunities for each have been expanded to include positions that can be done at home or school, before, during and after each event. All parent hour opportunities for events and activities will be available online this year! Visit School Speak starting on August 23rd, the day after Back to School Night, to start signing up! The volunteer sign-up page will be updated and accessible throughout the school year.
If you have questions about Parent Club, please reach out to me or any Executive Committee member.
We are looking forward to another great year – the first in our new beautiful school!
Elisabeth White, 2019-2020 Parent Club President
