Thank you to everyone who was able to come to the PTO
Voting Meeting on April 4th. All went smoothly. We have the majority
of Committee Chair positions filled, so all the fun things that
happen within the school can continue in the tradition of the PTO's mission
statement. Additionally, the seats of President and Vice President
to Jenn Taylor and Pam Rowell! We wish you the very best next year, and hope you find
the experience to be rewarding.
Between now and June 7, we need to find volunteers to
fill the openings that remain. Specifically, the Treasurer's seat
is vacant. If you're interested in this position, please contact
Michelle Mcfall at
Although we have not yet filled the Co-Secretary positions,
there are Members who would like to be considered for them. Please
stay tuned for more information. Lastly, we need Chairs for
the following Committees: Bus Driver Appreciation; Fall
Family Fun Night; Kindergarten Orientation / Welcoming (a
Co-Chair to work with Jodi Horvath); the Science & Art Fair;
Volunteer Recruitment. If you
would like more information about these committees, please contact
Debby Rhea at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sloan PTO Board
some great news to share! The final piece of Sloan's playground
renovation project will be ready when our children return to school
next fall. With the support and approval of our PTO Members, Sloan
will be acquiring a basketball court and permanent hoop
installations. It will not be a full-size court but a plot of land in
front of the building where kids can play, even when the ground is
too wet elsewhere on the property. The details were finalized last
week during a meeting with Mr. Majewski (the district's Facilities
Manager), Mr. Mossellem (teacher/administrator and fitness advocate),
and PTO Vice President Wendy Lindeman who researched prices and
lucky and appreciative to all Members of the PTO who participate in
the fundraisers that generate money to provide our children and
teachers with wonderful traditions, opportunities, and resources.
Each year, we bring things like Fall Family Fun Night, the
Father/Daughter Dance, the Science & Art Fair, various
assemblies, and field trips to our school to enhance an already
excellent curriculum and provide our children with unique and
wonderful experiences. The basketball court will not only serve our
student body during the school year, but also during breaks. It
will be a safe place to play and make memories. Thanks to all of you
for making this possible.
