Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! We would like to encourage you to review the attached information regarding the Echo Hills PTA. The purpose of our PTA is to support the students, staff, and families of Echo Hills. We are encouraging every family to support the PTA by purchasing a membership. This year’s memberships are $7.00 per person. The membership money is used to pay our dues and support student activities. In order to be a volunteer or attend PTA school events you must be a member of the PTA and you must be fingerprinted. This is a district policy that we must follow.
By joining and purchasing a membership you can choose your level of involvement with the PTA. There are many opportunities for parents to be involved in their child’s education both during and after school hours. You can choose what works best for you and fits your family’s schedule. By becoming a member of the PTA you will be able to volunteer to assist with the classroom parties, organize and help with events, assist with fundraising projects, volunteer at events, attend PTA meetings, share ideas, join PTA committees, and even become a PTA officer.
Attached you will find the membership information letter, the membership form, and the volunteer form. If you are interested in assisting with any of the PTA events you must complete and return both forms. Please make sure you fill out the membership form as well as the volunteer form and return it to school with your child by Friday, September 15th, 2016.
We will be using our website to give updates, post forms, and notify you of any upcoming events. You will also be able to pay your membership online. We will also have a link to www.signupgenius.com that will allow you to volunteer for your selected activities and events. When you fill out and return the volunteer form you will be added to that events sign-up sheet and given the opportunity to select your level of involvement at least 4-6 weeks prior to the event.
The PTA believes that together we can enhance the educational experiences of our students and support our students, staff, and families. The PTA board has been working hard this summer to organize and plan out this year’s events and activities. We look forward to working with you in the upcoming school year!! Thank you for your support!!! Feel free to contact us anytime to share feedback, give ideas, or express questions/concerns.
