Happy fall! The leaves are changing, our nights are getting cooler and we've officially welcomed the first day of autumn. PTA has lots of updates to give you after a successful first month of school:
Catalog Fundraiser - Many thanks to all who ordered from the ABC Catalog fundraiser. PTA raised over $8,000 thanks to your efforts. Order pick-up will begin after school on Tuesday, October 16. For more information contact Kirsten Hollander at email@example.com.
General Membership Meeting - Our first PTA General Membership meeting was Tuesday, September 18 at 6:30 p.m. * We approved the 2012-13 PTA Budget and heard committee updates from each of our officers.
* After a report from Principal Kay Moser about Marshdale's school performance framework, we were treated to a demonstration of SmartBoard technology by teachers Barb Grindle and Charlie McCarthy.
* We also heard information about the 3A/3B Ballot Initiative on the November ballot. Representatives Kristin Wheatley and Tammy Story presented from Citizens for Jeffco Schools and Sheila Atwell presented from Jeffco Students First. I would encourage each of you to visit the websites, read the attached information about how 3A/3B will affect Marshdale and educate yourselves about the upcoming vote.
* Mark your calendars! Our next general membership meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, October 17 from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
