Note from the PTA

(This article also appeared in the August Newsletter)

Welcome back to school! Start off the new school year with a commitment to become involved. A great way to be involved with your child’s education is to sign up for PTA!

Send an email to foothills.pta@gmail.com to get started. There are benefits to being a part of the PTA (programs with HP Academy Store, Metlife, Sharp televisions, vacation packages with SouthWest Airlines, and T-Mobile!). Learn more by visiting the national PTA site.

Within the PTA there are many ways to become involved. One way is by signing up for PTA committees. See [the newsletter - or send a note to the email above] for contact information on available committees. The PTA board is also still looking for a “President Elect”. If you are interested, please contact Allison Strang.

Please volunteer in the classroom! Sign up to help out monthly, every other week, or weekly. Contact your room parent, and if there isn’t a room parent already, volunteer to do that! The teachers can always use our help and the kids love to see the parents involved. Those who are unsupervised with children (on the playground, testing in the hallways, etc) need to be fingerprinted. This can be done FREE of charge at the Jordan District offices at 7387 S. Campus View Drive (Jordan Landing). Contact the front office for more information.

Note: For more information about the Districts new volunteer fingerprinting policy see this article posted last fall.
