Dear Clinton Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to the new school year! As this year’s Clinton PTA President, I am looking forward meeting and working with many of you in the coming year.
Whether you are a new or returning Clinton family, you probably already realize that our outstanding administration and staff have created a school environment that consistently challenges our students to do their best, respect each other, and be engaged and excited learners.
But did you know that many of the programs and activities that your children will experience this year will be brought to them by the Clinton PTA? In addition to hosting many of our beloved community events, including the Ice Cream Social (Friday, September 7th), Pumpkin Patch, and Winter Craft Fair, the Clinton PTA also brings enriching cultural arts activities and assemblies to school, subsidizes field trips for all grades, and provides school-wide garden education.
So you may ask, who is this amazing Clinton PTA?!?!? The Clinton PTA is YOU!!! Because of YOUR generosity, in both donations and time, the Clinton PTA is able to bring these exciting programs and events to Clinton. Here are some ways you can get involved right now...
- BECOME A PTA MEMBER: We hope that you and every adult member of your household will join the PTA. The dues are $12 per person and the majority of that stays with us to fund programs and activities.
- BECOME A CLASS PARENT: This is an amazing way to get involved in your child’s classroom! It’s incredibly rewarding and MUCH of it can be done from a computer. SIGN UP INFO HERE
- BECOME A VOLUNTEER: Can you commit to giving three hours of your time this year? There are MANY ways to help. Sign up at INSERT URL or join us the the BTS Coffee (September 6th, front lawn after drop off) or Ice Cream Social (September 7, front lawn at 6:30pm) to learn more.
“Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in.” - Marjorie Moore
All the best,
