Dear Matthew Thornton Families,
On behalf of the Matthew Thornton PTA (MTPTA), we’d like to welcome you back for the 2015-2016 school year!! We hope you all enjoyed your summer and had many fun-filled, stress-free days. We are very excited about the new school year and, as always, we are looking forward to working with you to help fund exciting, educational programs, field trips and themed events for all of our students.The goal of the MTPTA is to work together with you to help the children of Matthew Thornton grow.
We hope that you will become members of the PTA. By joining, you are supporting the PTA programs that promote our children’s well-being and enhance their educational experience. Membership does not require you to commit to attending any meetings, or do any volunteer work; we truly just want your support :)
The PTA offers and funds many programs that benefit the staff, children and parents throughout the year, some of which you may not be aware of, such as:
•Volunteer Clerical Support
•Staff Luncheons and Appreciation Week
•Books and Beyond Reading Incentive Program
•Programs and School Assemblies
•Box Tops and Campbell’s Labels for Education (rewards help us to purchase school supplies)
•5th Grade Special Events and Yearbooks
If you choose to attend a meeting, you will know first hand what’s going on within the school. As a member, you have the right to vote on what you feel is important or not important. The PTA is a wonderful way to get involved, meet people and be a part of our wonderful school!!
As the year gets going, please let us know if we can help you in any way. We are here for you!!
Our monthly newsletter, Tiger Tales, is available at the beginning of each month on the MTPTA web-site. Feel free to submit an article or news at any time. The contact for Tiger Tales is Caroline Edwards.
If you ever have any questions or concern in regards to the PTA, please feel free to contact us at any time.
We are looking forward to another fantastic school year and we can’t wait to see you at meetings or school events.
Stacie Street, President Aaron Duffy, President-Elect
