Dear Clyde Hill Families:
As of today we do not have volunteers for a few key spots on the PTA. We have the Treasurer and Finance spots filled by Sheila-Jane Shelton and Jim Bodtke, respectively. We need the President and Secretary spots filled in order to have a functioning PTA as stated by the State of Washington PTA ByLaws. Since we are unable to fill these spots at this time, the PTA will become dormant until they are filled. This means that all the programs & events will be cancelled regardless if there are volunteers for the individual events. This week we paid for our 6 classroom aids, 1.5 reading specialist and 0.5 recess teacher for next year so we are lucky to continue with all of our aids for next year. However, all the other PTA related events will be cancelled---see below for cancelled events.
----Academic Planner for the 3rd, 4th, 5th grades
----Subscriptions to TIME for Kids
----Field Trips for all the grades
We urge you to consider a spot on the PTA Board as President or Secretary so we can continue with the programs and events at Clyde Hill Elementary School.
Thank You & Warm Regards,
Radha & Paleia, PTA Co-Presidents
Your contributions and generous donations during the auction and our Annual Fund Drive have helped us raise over $161,500. Over 70% of our families have contributed to the PTA fundraising goal of $275,000! Our aim is for $450 per child per academic year. We understand that not every family can donate at this level, but our goal is 100% participation. We ask you to consider a donation of any amount, as every single dollar donated helps with the numerous programs the PTA provides for our students.
Over 80% of donated funds are allocated to Classroom Aids/Specialists and Curriculum Enhancements. As a result of our families’ generous donations, our students have the opportunity to experience an exceptional education at Clyde Hill Elementary!
We hope to see you at the next PTA event!
