A Message From Our PTA President Minimize

September 2014

Dear Friends and Families of Fern Elementary,

Welcome to the start of another great school year at Fern Elementary. First, we want to give a big, warm welcome to our new Principal, Debbie Mabry. She comes to us with years of experience and wonderful leadership ideas. We can’t wait to see what her style will bring us this year.  

The 2014-15 school year is shaping up to be the best ever.  The Fern PTA is looking forward to again providing enriching, enjoyable programs and activities for the students and families of Fern. We will be supporting “old favorites” such as field trips, library books and supplies, classroom enrichment, free parent education workshops, academic assemblies, our Annual Fall Festival and much, much more. We also have a couple of new, exciting activities such as FIBO Art Academy and Father/Daughter & Mother/Son dances. 

In order to make all our exciting programs possible, we need your support and assistance, especially via volunteering. Check out the opportunities.

Don’t forget to sign up for our Weekly Communicator. 

In it, you’ll find valuable information such as; when students get out early for parent conferences, when the next school holiday is, which day your child should wear silly socks, when forms are due for activities, and when PTA is looking for volunteers. 

As we head into the new school year, please take time and be involved in your child’s education; our theme for the year is “Be PTA.” Please consider volunteering this year to Be Informed. Be Active. Be Your Kids Biggest Fan. Be PTA. You’d be surprised at how little time it takes.

Looking forward to a great 2014-15,

Heidi Dimaya

Fern PTA President
