PTA PARENT VOLUNTEER FORM & STUDENT DIRECTORY FORM ~ 2008-2009
The Muddy Brook Elementary PTA strives to provide informative meetings for parents and caregivers, sponsor events to benefit our community, and provide support for education through the work of various committees. The involvement of our families creates an enriching environment for students by showing that education matters. ANYONE is welcome to become a member. Membership dues are $5.00 for the year, per family. $3.50 goes to the National PTA with the remaining $1.50 going to our PTA. You do not need to be a PTA member to attend the meetings or volunteer, just to vote. We hope you will choose to be an active participant in the Muddy Brook Parent Teacher Association. You can join The PTA at our meetings and our first meeting is September 10th, 7-8pm at The School. There will also be a registration table at the Ice Cream Social from 6-7pm on the 4th and a form will also go home with students in September.
Please read over the description of events and committees sponsored by the PTA and select all those that interest you. The school spirit you share by volunteering will help you to meet new people and learn ways to enhance your child’s education. It means so much to our children to see outside adult involvement in their school. Any amount of time you are willing to give will make each event and committee a success. Many hands make light work - we will not call on anyone to do everything. If you check something and are not available when we call, we completely understand. Again, you do not need to be a PTA member to be actively involved in any school activities. What are you good at? Where could you enhance our School? If you don’t see something here that you think we could use, write it in!
Questions on any of this? Call Jenni Roy Hallock at 413-232-4322 or [email protected] or [email protected]
