Newsletter April 2013
Message from the Board
Happy Spring! The sunshine and warmer weather are much appreciated after the cold (and long) Winter! We hope you had a wonderful Spring Break and are enjoying all that comes with Spring, even the busy sports schedules!
There is no General Meeting currently planned for this month, but please stay tuned to your Alert Now messages for more information and upcoming meetings on our group becoming a PTO. Feel free to reach out to any Board Member if you have any questions or concerns regarding this change.
In the next couple of months, we will be looking for many volunteers to Chair the open committees for next year. This community is amazing with parents willing to help and we look forward to hearing from you. Look for volunteer opportunities to come home before summer break.
