Dear Springer Parents,
On behalf of the Springfield Park
Elementary PTA, I would like to welcome all of our 2013-2014 Springers to a new school year. The
PTA has been working over the summer to make this a great year and we are excited about all that we have planned.
Many of you may wonder what role the SPES PTA plays in our school. We are an extremely active PTA
that supports the students and faculty of Springfield Park in numerous ways. We provide many programs and
materials throughout the year, as well as volunteers for countless activities. Our meetings are generally
the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 7:00 p.m., with one exception being the September Back-to-School/ Meet-the-Teacher
night. This meeting will be held on Thursday, September 12 at 6:30 p.m. Please note
that this night is the one meeting that is geared towards parents only, so please try to make childcare arrangements for that
evening. At this meeting we will be voting on the audit, the proposed budget, and any PTA legislative items
for the school year.
I encourage all parents to become PTA members, helping us to attain our goal of 100% membership. PTA
membership is only $5 per person and members will receive complimentary access to our new online directory.
Remember, anyone can join the PTA! Ask your neighbors and grandparents!
Please be sure to fill out and return the PTA Packet in your child’s
Open House folder. This is a new concept this year and we hope that it makes things a little easier for
you while filling out paperwork. Note that some forms need only be completed once if you include all of
your Springers on the forms. In addition, please make sure to go online to include your child in
this year’s online directory. Information can be found on our website and in this PTA Informational
I appreciate your continued support with our many fundraising activities. These include monthly
spirit nights at local restaurants, our Fall Springer Fund, bake sales, and our Spring Carnival. Last year,
we were able to provide many programs and assemblies for the students, including Theme Day. This year,
we will continue many of the great activities you know and love, such as, Somethin’ Pumpkin/ Trunk or Treat, Reflections,
Kids Club, Yearbook, WatchDogs, and our Talent Show.
Lastly, please do not hesitate to
contact any members of the PTA board with any concerns, suggestions, or questions you may have. I invite
you to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 747-0838. You may also contact any board member
via the “Contact Us” page of the www.springerpta.com website.
We are looking forward to a fantastic year!
