We had a wonderful start to our new school year at our September 10 meeting. We began with general introductions and discussed ways to be involved at Mays, including: upcoming Take Your Parent to School Days, the Fall Festival, and Mays CAFE. We also discussed the Mays open door visiting policy. It was pointed out that you do not need to undergo a background check if you are volunteering in the classroom and supervised by school staff. The school does require background checks for people who volunteer on a regular basis (weekly) or for chaperoning field trips when volunteers will be supervising students. We finished up the evening by writing Hopes & Dreams letters to our students which were delivered to the classroom the next day. What a thrill to receive a letter from mom/dad/grandma at school! This was a great way to share with teachers what we hope for our kids. Please join us at the next PTA meeting Tuesday, Deccember 10, 6:00-7:00 and at Fall Festival and the Mays CAFE in the coming months.
