Welcome Roadrunner Families,
On behalf of the Strandwood PTA Executive Board, I would like to welcome you to the 2016-17 school year. As a PTA, our goal is to continue to support and strengthen Strandwood Elementary to ensure that each student has the opportunity to reach their potential! A few of the exciting events and programs planned include FallFest, the Nutcracker Production, Read & Dream, and FAME (Fine Arts Mini Experience) as well as many others! Also look for new improvements including our newly designed website, stage curtains for performances, and a fantastic new marquee!
In order to be successful in initiating all the plans underway, we know that the support of our faculty, families, and community are of utmost importance. It takes teamwork! So please consider taking the following action steps toward being actively engaged in our school community.
- Join the PTA! Your participation and voice are welcomed and needed to shape the direction of our planning and collaboration with Strandwood Elementary. You may complete your membership form here. Join us monthly at our General PTA Meetings where we look ahead at defining new goals and implementing existing ones!
- Get Involved and volunteer to Make a Difference! Research consistently shows that when parents are involved in their child’s school, the child makes better grades, has fewer discipline problems, and has higher self esteem. We strive to create the kind of school environment where faculty and students can do their very best work. That is what is best for our school, our community, and most importantly, our children. Please look for ways that you can be a part. Whether you can share your professional expertise or a hidden talent; whether you can help every day, an hour a week, or for a specific event, you are needed! Please share your time with our students!
- Make a Financial Contribution! The Strandwood PTA provides our students with art, science, technology and instructional assistants in every lower-grade classroom. Our community generously donates time and resources to improve the lives of our students. We firmly believe that no amount of time or money is too small! Donate here.
We hope as you look through these pages, you will be inspired to join our organization in whatever capacity you are able. Each one of our new and dedicated board members is available to help you answer any questions about Strandwood and the efforts, past and present, of Strandwood PTA. Please feel free to email any PTA board member or catch one of us at drop-off or pick-up if you have any questions.
Thank you for your support!
Strandwood PTA President
