Dear Fellow Sligo Creek Families,
Wow! What an amazing Spring it has been for Sligo Creek Elementary School! It is such an honor to be Co-Presidents for such a remarkable parent group. If every parent volunteer wore a T-shirt that read “Volunteer Superhero” you would see multiple PTA volunteers every single day at school. Our PTA members and volunteers help out in so many capacities. Just this spring we have held many community events, including the Grade 3-5 Social, Family Reading Night, Science Nights, The Outdoor Classroom/CDET Work Day and Potluck, World Culture Day, Autism Awareness Week, the Earth Day Poster Contest, the Annual Book Swap, and the Salamander Stride!
Parents have also been involved in advocacy work on behalf of SCES by meeting Board of Education Members and talking about SCES needs, and advocating for funding for, among other things, a better recess field. Parents have also been working to ensure that as Purple Line development continues that the safety of students traveling to and from school continues to remain at the forefront of peoples’ minds. If you are looking for ways to become even more involved in this community during the upcoming year, please consider talking to a board member, committee chair, nominating committee member, or another parent volunteer to find out about positions that might be of interest to you. Grab a friend and co-chair a committee. Or take it a step further and volunteer for one of the open Executive Board positions! We are currently looking for a Secretary, Vice President, Vice President of Communications, and Vice President of Events and Fundraising. We are also in need of a Webmaster and one or two people to head up the School Directory.
We can’t do anything without the support and diverse talents of our parent community, and we’d like to extend a big thank you also to all our board members, committee chairs, room parents and to every parent that has volunteered in our school! Please keep it coming. We have a busy few months to get us the last day of school. Whether it’s 2 hours or 20 hours, work done at home or work done at school, we rely on all of our parents to support all of our students here at SCES. Thanks for your support this Spring and please consider how you can support the PTA next year
