Hello Thomas Families!
Thank you to everyone who submitted their t-shirt orders to us. We've already received questions about having extras and we will keep everyone updated on what we have left.
Since appointments last spring, our PTO board has unfortunately seen two positions open up. First, we need a treasurer, who is responsible for maintaining the budget and tracking expenses. The second would be a co-fundraising coordinator who would be responsible for setting up Thomas Tuesday nights. We are planned out for the remainder of 2017 so it shouldn’t be too terrible to pick this one up. Please email us at ThomasElemPTO@gmail.com if you are interested.
I previously mentioned having sign-up sheets at our Open House for different projects we will need help with. We ended up not having them out because there was so much stuff happening that night and we didn't want to make it more hectic. Here's a quick list of areas we are needing help. Then head on over to our SIGN UP GENIUS and sign up to volunteer. Planning meetings for the events will be arranged at later dates.
- Dragon Dash kick-off: planning, set up and help with activities (listed as Fall Bash on the sign up genius)
- Dragon Dash: setting up and helping the day of
- Thomas Tuesday: help with signs
- Box Tops: collection and prize planning (there is already a coordinator but a lot for one person)
- Family Dance Party: planning and set up
- Year End Bash: planning, set up and help with activities
Come to our first meeting on Monday, September 11th at 6:30 and we will be discussing all of these committees, review our annual budget and our plans for the year. Mark your calendars so you don't miss out! While your calendar is out, mark it for Thomas Tuesday on September 12th. This month will be at Jimmy John’s!
Attached you will find our annual calendar. You will see we added district days as well as PTO dates so you only need to keep one calendar. Our goal is to get these printed on magnets for every Thomas family. Feel free to discuss this with us at our first meeting as well.
I look forward to seeing you all at our meeting on Monday. Our website is currently under construction so keep an eye out for emails like this, things sent home with your students as well as updates on our FACEBOOK page. You can always email us at ThomasElemPTO@gmail.com with any questions, comments or concerns.
Have a great day!
