The PTA has many exciting events and programs planned and we look forward to another great year!Next General MeetingTuesday 5/21 at 7:00 pmBTES library
From the Desk of Our President
Spring has sprung and that means more time outside (watch for traffic), blooming and budding everything (hello allergies) and elections for the PTA (can’t do this alone). As you take in the sun and warmer temperatures please also take a moment to stop and smell the roses…or at least slow down…especially when you are driving through the neighborhoods. Our children are excited as we are to open the windows, breathe in fresh air and run around with the wind in their hair. What they are not thinking about are the adults behind the wheel on our busy streets hurrying to school drop-off/dismissal, sports practice dropoff/ pick-up or simply coming home after a long day at the office.
PLEASE SLOW DOWN and follow the rules of the road.
Spring also brings PTA Executive Board elections. When an engaged board is voted into office, many accomplishments are achieved over the course of the school year. I encourage all active PTA members to attend the monthly meeting on Tuesday, April 23rd. Our Nomination Committee worked hard and submitted their slate at March’s membership meeting. I am happy to report that 7 out of 8 Executive Committee positions are currently slated to be voted on. If you have a heart of service, please think about the 8th position that is needed to be filled; Vice President of Events. Without this position filled, events that your child and family enjoyed this year may not be able to take place. If you are looking for a role outside of the VP level - be on the lookout for an additional 30+ committee chair positions to be open for volunteers after Spring Break. For more details please visit www.buffalotrailpta.org/About/Bylaws and Office Roles for detailed job descriptions. Questions/Comments – please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you on the trail!
