OFIS PTA Meeting TOMORROW-with special guests FL/ECC PTA!

Hello OFIS PTA Friends,

It seems like the school year is not winding down, but rather WINDING UP! We have only TWO MEETINGS LEFT and so much to accomplish!

This week is special for OFIS PTA as our April meeting will be a combined meeting with Falls-Lenox/ECC PTA this Tuesday, April 19. We will welcome third grade parents to OFIS at 6:00 pm for a tour of the school led by Mr. Svec followed by dinner at 6:30 and our combined meeting with Falls-Lenox/ECC PTA at 7:00 pm.

At this meeting we will vote on the slate of officers for the 2016-2017 school year, as well as share with the incoming OFIS parents all of the great things happening at our school. We will also need to vote on our OFIS PTA Volunteer of the Year. Please take a moment to nominate a deserving volunteer using the attached form. We have so many great helpers who deserve this recognition!

Lastly, we will vote on the proposed Standing Rules revisions. See attached prior to the meeting.

Attached are all of the documents you will need for the meeting. Please print out what you need to help us save on copying and printing costs.  If you are not able to attend please feel free to review the attached to stay “in the know”! The meeting minutes from last month will be available for review at the meeting.

If you plan to attend the dinner portion of the meeting and you have not yet RSVP’d please do so TODAY using this link: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0a4ba5a82fabff2-joint Also, we are still in need of volunteers to provide beverages. Even if you are not coming to the dinner portion of the meeting, if you are able to bring a beverage to the meeting at 7:00 that would still be a big help. Please indicate that on the Sign-Up Genius. THANK YOU!

As always, THANK YOU for all you do to help make our PTA shine. I couldn’t be more proud.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
