Happy Mid-Summer Greetings Agnor Hurt Families!
We hope that you are enjoying an amazing fun filled summer and finding a bit of time for some rest and relaxation as well. Our PTO Board has begun its work to ensure that we have a wonderful year ahead of us filled with events designed around our mission: To promote an active and open partnership within the Agnor-Hurt Elementary School community in order to inspire students to fully realize their academic, social and emotional potential while nurturing their cultural and community awareness.
Meet the 2017-18 Board Members:
President- Sheila Chrobak
Vice President- Susan Scott
Treasurer- Meredith Curs
Secretary- Dana Washington
Communications Chair- Safia Wentling
Parent Council Representative- Sharon Fix
But our PTO Board isn’t complete! We are looking to expand our board in order to have a greater reach across our entire Agnor Hurt community. Would you consider participating as a Grade Level Representative (ensuring that teachers and families in your “wing” of the school are able to actively engage in the PTO)? Or how about as Fundraising Coordinator (coordinating all of our traditional and new fundraisers)? What about Volunteer Coordinator (making sure that parents have a way to share their special interests and skills within all our volunteer opportunities)? Want to find out more about how you can participate? Email Sheila Chrobak at email@example.com
We have a such a wonderfully diverse community with so many varied skill sets and talents and there is truly something for everyone when it comes to PTO participation. Fill our our General Volunteer Form and we will look forward to connecting with you. Keep your eyes and ears open for opportunities throughout the year and please don’t hesitate to reach out to us to share how you would like to contribute. Many hands make for lighter work and a truly active and engaged community!
The 5th Grade will be having a Father-Daughter/Mother-Son Dance in the evening of Friday May 19th. This is a free event for all 5th graders. If your parent is unavailable, another adult may be your chaperone. This is not a drop-off event. This will take place 7:00-8:30 pm in the Cafeteria. Dress Up & Join the Fun!
Parent volunteers are needed for this event! If you can help plan decorations, food or music, set up on the night of the event, or clean up on the night of the event, please contact the PTO. Thank you!
Teacher Appreciation Week is coming up April 24-28.
On Wednesday, April 26, we will be preparing lunch for the teachers and staff. The lunch will be entirely donated by parents, so please sign up to bring something if you can. If you can come for an hour and help with set-up or clean-up, that would be greatly appreciated!
The PTO will be hosting a breakfast on Monday, April 24 and we could use some help with set up and clean up that morning. We will also be treating the staff to a morning coffee treat to end the week on Friday, April 27. If you are interested in helping with the breakfast or coffee morning, please let the PTO know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please take a moment that week to let your child’s teacher know how much you appreciate them!
