Another Successful Book Fair!

PTA banners book fair

Our Spring Book Fair was a HUGE success! The kids had such a wonderful time picking out their books. We just love seeing those smiling faces bringing their books to the register to check out. All of the kids were so very well behaved and respectful. We could not be more proud of the amazing kids we have in our district. We just LOVE them all!!!

A special THANK YOU to Mrs. Ploch, the fact that she knows every child and what books they would be interested in is just amazing. I would also like to thank Christine Smith, Lucy Dunay, Sue Testino, Barbara Putrino, Dorothy Pokrzywa, Ria Smith, Trish Lovett, Jen Singer, Amy Vierzchalek, Renee LaRocca, Danielle Evers, Danielle Romeo, Cindy Cunha…and SOO many others who helped out with our book fair.  We would not have been able to do it without you!

Current Events

PTA banners AprilIt doesn’t look like it…it doesn’t feel like it…but it IS indeed SPRING! The weather will get warmer (hopefully). We won’t have anymore snowstorms (fingers crossed). And flowers will start blooming (ahh). And what else do we have to look forward to???

PTA banners spring breakAlso coming up is our Book Fair at the elementary school! It will be held April 16 &17 and also during parent/teacher conferences April 20 & 21! This event is always a big hit as the children love to pick out books with our wonderful parent volunteers.

We have a few positions open on our PTA board, Treasurer and Corresponding Secretary. If you have an interest in being a vital component to our PTA executive board please send your letter of intent to Peggy Van Ginneken or Adele Manailovich to be considered for a position!


PTA banners MarchIt’s MARCH everyone!  You know what that means???  SPRING IS COMING!  I know, I know, it’s hard to believe right now with all of the snow…ice…delayed openings and snow days!  But hopefully the old adage is true about March, “In like a lion, out like a lamb”
