The email address to schedule a test drive time is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Feel free to attend Dr. Martin's Parent Advisory Council meeting this evening at Central Office. It will begin at 6:00 PM and is held monthly on the third Tuesday.
Make plans to dine at Subway on Yadkinville Road this Thursday, Sept. 20. You may purchase PTA memberships and schedule your Friday drive while enjoying a delicious menu item!
Your PTSA hopes everyone has had a great "back to school" experience and gotten all settled in. We've been hard at work making plans for programs and events for school year 2012-2013 that will reflect the NC PTA Mission Statement: NCPTA is North Carolina's oldest and largest volunteer organization advocating for the education, health, and success of all children and youth while building strong families and communities. Keep on the alert for more updates as these plans are finalized.
Having approached the Reagan administration as to ways we can help accomplish their goals, I learned several things. Our students are presently using carts of computers that were purchased when the school first opened, making them eight years old. Many will not hold a charge and it has been determined that replacing those batteries is not feasible. Consequently, purchasing a cart of 30 new computers is in order.
Our Media Center makes available for loan graphing calculators to our students. The requests have exceeded our current supply. Making a purchase of 30 calculators would help to alleviate the shortage.
"How can I help?", you ask. First, please make the time to purchase a PTA membership by forwarding an email to email@example.com
. The dues are $7.00 per member. Secondly, dine with your family at Subway on Yadkinville Rd. each third Thursday of every month beginning September 20th. The restaurant is donating 10% of its proceeds that day to us. Thirdly, drive a Lincoln!
We are so grateful that Parkway Ford has chosen us to host the Lincoln Drive Smart for Your School program this year. Lincoln will donate to us $20 for every test drive up to 300 drivers (yes - that's $6,000) that day. Drives will begin at 9:30 AM on Friday, September 21st and last throughout the day except for a recess from 3:00 PM to 4:10 PM. Seven cars will be scheduled at 10 minute intervals. The route will be from the bus parking lot to CG Hill Park on Balsom Road and back. Anyone over the age of 18 who is not a Reagan student may drive. We are limited to one driver per household. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
