End of Year Letter from PTO President
Well it’s official, with only a few more days left, we have gotten through another amazing school year!
So much could not have been accomplished with out the help of so many of you! Many came out to help as parent volunteers and given time for Austin school and PTO events. While many have also donated graciously to the PTO. Your financial contribution has allowed us to give back to the kiddos, as well as to our deserving teachers and staff! So, thank you from the bottom of my heart!!
Thank you for continuing to help us elevate Austin Elementary to being one of the best schools, if not the best school, in the district.
I have finished a my first year as your PTO President, and can’t believe what we’ve accomplished as a board this year. From matching funds, purchase of technology items for the school, Teacher/Staff Holiday party, Teacher/Staff Appreciation week, programs for the kiddos, and of course, Survivor Field DAY!! This is just to name a few. I have had the privilege this year to work with an amazing PTO Board, and proud to say I know these parents, and again, am grateful for their time and dedication to our school. Many of my relationships with staff and teachers has also deepened this year that I know leaving will be hard after I complete my final year next year. If you’ve been on the fence about joining the board, it’s not too late! There are still a few open positions if you would like to help make a difference at Austin. We’d love to have you!
I wish everyone a safe, fun summer! Make memories – time continues to fly by fast!!!
I look forward to seeing you in August or even around town!
