PTA Teamwork

If you didn’t already know, PTA is full of behind the scenes magic. In appreciation of our PTA members and their contributions, we are highlighting some of the special moments and efforts that went into the End of the Year celebration event. The photos are not inclusive of all the help received to pull together this event.

Photo 1: This year on Mother’s Day, Karen went to Costco to purchase treats for the End of the Year celebration despite her husband’s objection to her celebrating Mother’s Day doing PTA work. She wanted to save PTA some hard earned fundraised money by purchasing the treats that were on sale.

Photo 2: PTA members’ child(ren) often lend a hand or two to help put labels on donated books, load and unload the car and/or stuffing bags.

Photo 3: PTA VP of Fundraising Chair - Ken negotiated a deal for a special treat for our children.  He made multiple trips to Yogurtland to pick up and deliver ALL the treats!

Photo 4: PTA President Allison ordered 1630 books as gifts and sorted them all into reading levels for easy organization on distribution day. Her living room and garage was filled with boxes and boxes of books. Various PTA members and their children helped label the books. Allison also thoughtfully selected books and shopped on various sites for the best deals. Tony Fan assisted with ordering of the Chinese books for the Dual Immersion students. Additional help from Susan Vien and Teresa Ybarra with ordering and labelling.
