On behalf of the Parent Teacher Association and North Chevy Chase Elementary School, it is our pleasure to welcome new and returning families to the start of the 2016-2017 school year. We are thrilled to continue our efforts to bringing our community closer together through a number variety of exciting activities and events.
Of course, all of this would not be possible without our outstanding PTA Board and Committee Chairs, Principal Wallace-Stevens, the amazing NCC faculty and staff, and you--the parents and guardians.
Our PTA is made up of volunteer parents, teachers, grandparents, guardians, school staff and others in the community that want to improve the educational lives of our children. Our 2016-2017 PTA Board Members, Committee Chairs, and volunteers are in the attached document for your reference.
The PTA supports many activities, fundraisers and services throughout the year. It is our hope that every family can participate so we can better serve our children and their needs. Your membership allows the PTA to raise funds to provide a wide range of educational enrichment programs for the students. Over the years, the PTA has provided learning opportunities and social activities that may have otherwise been unavailable to our students.
We would LOVE for you to get involved by joining the PTA and volunteering. It is through your efforts and engagement that NCC will continue to grow, teach and support our children as well as our community. Keep in mind that by volunteering at our school, you will get to enjoy the opportunity to interact with the kids, get to know other parents, and help the PTA accomplish things that truly make a difference. Research shows that students whose parents are involved in their education have better grades and fewer discipline disciplinary problems. We promise that the time you give to the PTA and the school will be fulfilling as well as fun! Please consider volunteering as it really does make a difference in the lives of all of our students!
We are looking forward to seeing and meeting many of you during the Open House (August 26, 11am to 12pm), Back to School Night (September 7, 6:30pm - 8:30pm) and the Back-to-School Picnic (Thursday, September 22 at 6pm - 8pm). Please stop by the PTA table or contact Jenifer Flynn or Jonica Gibson and find out how to get involved.
We would like to thank you in advance for your support. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. Have a wonderful school year and we look forward to seeing you at our first PTA meeting in September. It is going to be an exciting year! Our best wishes, Jenifer Flynn (firstname.lastname@example.org) Jonica Gibson (email@example.com) PTA Co-Presidents
