PTG PRESIDENT’S LETTER

Hello SMMS Families!

PTG wishes a warm welcome and welcome back to all new and returning families.  We are looking forward to another great year full of fun activities and fundraising opportunities to continue to make our school great.  We are planning on implementing on some new and exciting things including working on the ability to use Paypal to register and pay for events.  In order to make it easier for parents to attend PTG meetings we will reopen extended care for your JK-8th grade student during the meeting time as well as offer homework and free dress passes for your children.  We are wanting to form a donation/sponsorship committee in order to maximize the resources of our community and  generosity of others.  We will continue to collect Box tops, Campbell’s soup labels, ink cartridges and use Shoparoo.  Our Spirit Store will be open on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings in the PTG room.  We also have a lot of ideas we are working on to continue to be able to provide necessary items for our school and to be able to continue to enhance our children’s educational experiences. 
 
PTG meetings are scheduled typically for the third Wednesday of the month at 6:00pm, and all are welcome. Please also feel free to visit in the PTG room or email any questions or suggestions to SMMSPTG@aol.com.
 
Thank you for your help and support!
