PTA PAWPRINTS - 10/1/20
We'd like to invite you to join the DTES PTA this year if you haven't already done so. It's quick and easy to do at https://dtes.new.memberhub.store/store. While we'd love to have you at our meetings and even helping by serving on a committee if you have the time, we understand everyone's situation is unique. You don't have to donate your time to be a part of the PTA, $10 membership for the year is all it takes to help advocate for your children.
The 2019-2020 Audit, Proposed 2020-2021 Budget, and September Meeting Minutes from 9/22 are all available for review under PTA Documents and Forms. We will be voting to approve each of these during our October meeting, Tuesday 10/27.

BOARD INTRODUCTIONS & NEW YEAR MESSAGE
Hello Husky families!!
My name is Jodi Humenik, I’ll be your PTA president for this year. I have a daughter in 2nd grade and we have truly loved being a part of the DTES community over the last two years. Christine Fowler is returning as our illustrious treasure; she has a daughter in 4th grade and a son in 2nd. Meghan Aloshen will be joining us a Vice President this year and we are so excited to have her! Her oldest son is in 1st grade.
There are a lot of things we don't know about this school year. But no matter how we educate our children this year, the DTES PTA will be here for your child and you. Even if your child is not a DTES student for part or all of this year, you are still welcome and encouraged to join the PTA!
It’s time now to get back to work for the 2020-2021 school year. Your DTES PTA wants to make it as special and supportive year as it can be.
As the school year will be different this year, so will the activities of the PTA. We will count on you as members to help us decide where to focus our efforts to best meet the ever-evolving needs of our children.
Your membership gives you a voice and a vote in deciding how we direct our efforts and our funds. Your attendance is encouraged (but not required!) at the general meetings where enrichment programs, budgets, and school events. Rest assured, our meetings will be virtual at the start of the year, making it even easier to attend!
We invite you to join the DTES PTA where you can connect with other families to create a community where families feel valued, respected, and known. You become a part of the Virginia State PTA and National PTA, the most powerful children’s advocacy organization in the country. Most importantly, you open the door for more opportunities for you and your child to have an enriching, successful, and FUN school year, whether it be from the comfort of your home or the classroom!
There is no wrong or right way to be involved – anything you can give, whether it is time or money (even if that is only the membership fee), will support your child’s potential. We invite you to join because we can do more together than apart. It only takes 5 minutes. https://dtes.new.memberhub.store/store?category=Memberships
DTES PTA President, 2020-2021
