This Week!

This Week!

Hello All!

This is Teacher Appreciation Week.
A flyer went home last week with some ideas about how to show our teachers how much we care.  Tomorrow, Tuesday May 8th PTO will be hosting a Teacher Appreciation Breakfast.  You can sign up to help or bring something in the morning here:
This Wednesday, May 9th is our last PTO meeting of the school year!
It will take place at 6pm in the Media Center as usual pizza and childcare will be provided.  We will be discussing the Dance-a-Thon / Field Day Event, the May Scholastic Book Fair and holding elections for officers for the 2018/2019 school year.  The officers include President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. Being an officer is a great way to help set the goals and priorities for PTO and contribute to Parker Woods Montessori. Listed below are descriptions of what each office entails.  We will take nominations and hold a the vote at the meeting on May 9th.  If you are not interested in becoming an officer you can also contribute by joining a committee.  The current committees are listed below.  For more info about PTO happenings you can check out the website at pwmpto.org or on Facebook at Parker Woods Montessori PTO.
