PTA President's Message - August 2015

Adobe Bluffs PTA Welcomes You Back to School!

Whether you are returning to school or you are here for your first year...WELCOME!  Your PTA is so excited to kick off another great school year at Adobe Bluffs.  Not only is it a fun time to get back into their learning environment and connect with friends, it is fun to have our school family back together, as a whole, as we guide our kids through these elementary years.  We would like to extend a warm and wonderful welcome to our new principal, Eddie Park.  We know that you are going to love his enthusiasm and all the great things he will bring to AB.

Your PTA invites you to consider all the ways that you can contribute to support our students in their learning endeavors.  The PTA provides tremendous support to our teachers, staffs and kids day in and day out.  But we cannot do it without your support!  You can support the PTA in some very simple ways:

• JOIN!  There's power in numbers.  Become a PTA member for only $12.  And encourage all family members and friends to join as well!

• GIVE!  We offer the opportunity for our families to donate (in lieu of multiple fundraising efforts) to support all the wonderful ways we make an impact in enhancing our students' learning opportunities.  To provide these programs, your PTA suggests a donation of $100 per student.  And of course, you can donate more!  Your valuable donation is tax-deductible and is greatly needed.

• DISPLAY YOUR PRIDE!  We will be offering some new incentives this year that you can proudly display in support of ABES.  You could be rewarded if you are seen showing your pride!

• VOLUNTEER!  The experience will be meaningful to both you and your child(ren).

Thank you in advance for all you will continue to do to support our school this year.  We look forward to spending another year learning and growing with our AB family!

With Aztec Pride,

Janice Lutz, PTA President
Kristine Brownlee, EVP & Sponsorship Chair
Autumn Dobbins, VP Membership
