Dear Howard Parents,
The Howard PTA Board welcomes you to Howard Elementary school for another memorable year of programs, events, and Howard school pride. As we head into a new school year, we would like to remind you of the importance of your volunteer hours and financial support of the PTA. Every year, the PTA provides funding for school events, classroom supplies, professional development, educational programs, library books, teacher appreciation week festivities, site improvements and many, many more. To maintain our support of these vital programs, we ask each family to make an annual tax-deductible donation to the PTA and also become a member. Every donation makes a difference and we are aiming for 100% participations by our families this year. We have so many fun things planned for our children in the coming months, but they cannot happen without your HELP.
For details about how to donate, sign up for chairing events, and get involved in the PTA please go online to sign up for membership at howard.memberhub.com or send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you like to help chair an event. List of events for this year are available on the Howard blog: www.howardelementarypta.com .(please subscribe so we can stay connected). Membership or Donation forms are also available in the office if you like to send in a check or cash.
Also, please join us for these important upcoming events:
*Open House: September 8th from 6-7:30
* Welcome Back Picnic: September 16th 3pm-5pm
*First PTA Meeting: Thursday, October 13 @9:15 am (Cafeteria)
