PRESIDENTS MESSAGE
Winter 2015/2016

It’s been a busy few months for Meadowbrook PTSA! Thank you to all of you that supported us by becoming a member and donating to our ‘Money for Mustangs’ fundraiser. It’s been keeping our Membership and Fundraising VPs quite busy since school started, but it’s a good problem to have! If you haven’t received your donation rewards, there will be distribution days in the quad after the holidays.

We had a lot of fun spreading the message of the dangers of drugs during our Red Ribbon Week! Thank you to all of the spirited students that participated, and to ASB for helping out wherever was needed.


There was a great turnout of canned food items for our fall food drive. Thank you to all of you that helped Meadowbrook families make ends meet during the Thanksgiving break.

Also in the tradition of giving to those less fortunate, our Adopt-a-Family program is in full swing. If you’re able, you can donate a gift card in the office, or pick a gift item from the giving tree in the library. It’s an easy way to really make a families holiday a little brighter. Gifts can be brought to the Student Services office any time before 12/14.

Our second Principal Coffee will be on Tuesday, 1/26/16 at 9 am in the Library. We invite you to come hear what’s new and upcoming from Dr. Carrillo, then stay for our PTSA association meeting (open to all members and those wanting to join). We need your vote on our bylaws update and electing our nominating committee for next year. It’s an important meeting, so we hope you can make it.

Lastly, please continue to send in those Box Tops! We’re right on track to meet our goal for the year, but we rely on them to keep coming in! Box Tops will be collected from the box in the office on 12/11, 1/29, and the final one on 2/29. You can find all of the important PTSA dates by clicking on the Calendar tab on the website.

I hope you have a joyous holiday with your family and friends, and may the magic of the season be plentiful!

Four Important Things About PTSA

rrow PTSA is a powerful advocate for family involvement. Over three decades of research shows that the single most effective element in a student's success if the involvement of family members in the student's education.

 

rrow Members are the strength of our organization. Active and informed members make positive decisions that affect the welfare and education of youth locally, statewide and nationally. Everyone can be a member at any PTSA. The more members enrolled in PTSA, the more powerful our voice.

 

rrow You are important to us. It is important to the PTSA that you, as a parent, understand the benefits of PTSA. Attending PTSA meetings is an opportunity to keep families informed and the school community about PTSA priorities and the issues that affect our children.

 

rrow Our community is our greatest asset. As advocates for all children and youth, the PTSA is most effective when we value all members of our communities by seeing the uniqueness of each individual and working to build strong representation from all groups
