PTO Meeting Thursday, May 2

We hope you can join us for the May PTO meeting, which is this week on Thursday, May 2 at 6:30 in the Library/Media Center on the second floor. As always, free child care is provided. The May 23 meeting will assess the past year in order to prepare well for next school year.

This month’s meeting will include many votes. We will allocate PTO funds for the Schoolyard Project construction, and vote on items to prepare for next year over the summer. Principal Hodge will give an update on the busy month of May.

We will also vote in 3 new PTO board members. Nominations may be accepted until the time of the vote. New board members begin their 2 year term at the May 23 meeting.

We hope to see you there. If you are unable to attend and would like to discuss anything on the agenda, please contact Laura Crawford at, Jodie Ackerman at, or any of the other PTO board members (click here for contact info).
