Please join the PTA Council in attending a school board forum Tuesday, October 23 in the GW Middle School Library (1005 Mount Vernon Avenue) at 7 p.m. All of the candidates will be there from all of the districts. Candidates will introduce themselves, then each district will meet separately to answer questions. Attendees can submit questions to the moderator(s) as well. This is an important election, since the at least six of the nine board members will be new this year! VOTE NOVEMBER 6!
Dear Cora Kelly Family:
On behalf of the Cora Kelly Parent Teacher Association (CK PTA), welcome to a new school year! My name is Tom Tyler and I am slated to serve as your PTA President for the 2012‐2013 school year. I have a 5th grader and a kindergartner and I look forward to getting to know you throughout the year.
Our PTA is an important part of the CK community, helping to inform, connect and keep everyone involved. We
provide financial and organizational support to the school but most importantly we strive to bring parents,
teachers and administrators together to help all of our students thrive and succeed.
Please join the CK PTA. Our yearly dues of $5 per individual or $10 per family are low and help to support PTA work. We’ll provide information about how to join and how to volunteer at upcoming events, in handouts, and on the web.
Please participate in our activities. Our informative, enjoyable meetings are usually the third Monday of each month. You can learn about CK programs, accomplishments, and opportunities; discuss questions with school representatives; and help plan activities and fundraisers. We usually provide pizza, childcare and Spanish translation. You also have many ways to get involved – from helping at the book fair, accompanying a field trip, gardening in the Habitat, to celebrating teachers, the opportunities are endless!
You can also stay informed through our PTA website, with updates about PTA opportunities and events and the school overall. Also send in your email address, and we will add you to the CK Google Group email list to receive PTA news and school updates. Updates will come in English and Spanish as much as possible.
And please help support our work by joining the PTA, registering your grocery cards for Cora Kelly, sending in BoxTops and Coke product codes, supporting PTA fundraisers for the school, and the like. So ‐ please Join, Participate, Stay Informed, and Support our PTA and our school. Together we can help make another great year at Cora Kelly even better!
With best wishes,
Cora Kelly PTA
