Letter from the PTA President

GOODBYE SUMMER…HELLO SCHOOL!

Your High Tech Elementary PTA wishes to welcome new and returning families back for the 2016-17 school year! Our mission is to make every student’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and our community. We have many exciting community events and programs planned, including the Welcome Back Picnic (8/19, 6-8pm), the Fall Festival (10/23, 4-6pm), Safety & Security Week and Nutrition Week. The PTA also runs the Room Parent Program, Uniform Recycling and programs to support our families in need. We hope that you will attend as many community events as possible and consider volunteering to support them as well!

Additionally, the PTA has fundraising events planned throughout the year in order to fill the gap between what DPS provides and what we want for our children. This year, the PTA will partner with Dr. Gile to grow the creative arts specials and enrichment program at High Tech. Specifically, we will be fundraising to bring a robust string instrument program to the school, purchase professional grade art materials, develop a drama program, develop a robotics program and to bring back Avid4Adventure.

Our fundraising efforts kickoff with our Fall Direct Giving Campaign- Please consider supporting these great endeavors by attending one of the parties and giving generously. (Direct Giving Parties: Cup o’ Coffee on 9/9, Direct Giving Social on 9/17, Garden Party on 9/24, Tailgate in the Park on 10/2).

We would love to have your help with these programs and events. Please consider joining the PTA ($16.25 membership dues), attending our meetings, and helping out. Whether you wish to volunteer one time or more frequently, let us know. There are volunteer opportunities that can be fit to any schedule.

PTA General Meetings are scheduled the third Wednesday of each month starting September 21, 2016. These informative and engaging meetings are held at the school from 6:30pm to 8pm and childcare is provided. Please come join us!

Thanks and see you soon,
