Special Parent Involvement Retreat: Supporting Parent and EAB Partnerships
Parents at the school are invited to join in on a special retreat. The goal of the retreat is to brainstorm ways that parents and EAB can build partnerships and support one another. We are going to work on creating a vision and building a sustainable structure that creates a home to school bridge. All parents are welcome! The workshop will be on Thursday, May 4 from 12:00-15:00 in the T&L Office. The only requirements for joining are that you are still here for the next school year and that you are excited to make a difference! A follow-up retreat is planned for May 25. Please send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to learn more and sign up.
Teacher Appreciation Party: Volunteers & Drinks Needed
Throughout the year, EAB teachers and teacher assistants work hard to make a difference in the life of our children. On Thursday May 11 in the evening, we say THANK YOU to them with a casual social event that this year will be hosted at a family home in Lago Sul. And we need your help:
Volunteers: We’ll need a few volunteers to set up, host, and clean up at this event. Please use this Teacher Appreciation Party Volunteer Sign Up Google Sheet to let us know how you can help!
Drinks: The PTO will purchase food for the party, but we would like to ask all parents to donate drinks for the event. Beer, wine, sodas…and other drinks if you can prepare them. You can bring the drinks to Della’s office starting today. The PTO will also be present at the school in the days before the event so you can give it to someone at the door just before pick up in the morning. Other drop off points will be announced!
Thank you for your help!
Teacher Grant Round Open: Your Funds are Working to Support the School!
Throughout the year, the PTO raises funds at events like the Silent Auction or Winter Cookie Sale to raise funds for PTO activities including the Student and Teacher Grant Rounds. Right now--and until May 5--the Teacher Grant round is open, and teachers are encouraged to submit grant proposals for innovative activities that support student learning. PTO parents Monica and Fernanda are inviting the parents in this short video below. Every year, a panel of parents helps decide which projects should be funded. If you have some time to read the proposals at home and meet once at the school after May 5, please get in touch (email@example.com)!
