Foundation Spotlight: Investing in Staff for Our Community
Thank you for your commitment and generosity in raising funds for supporting staffing for the 2015-16 school year! We got very close to our goal this year, coming in at approximately $84,314 gross. This comes to $59,542 net (after the equity formula which is ⅓ after the first $10,000) for staffing. This additional funding source allows us to add on to our current staffing numbers.
If life's kept you busy and you still haven't had a chance to buy outings or activities from the auction, you're in luck. We still have tickets for Movie on the Green, Ladies' Night at Switch, Dunking me/Troll/Tommy, and more. Check it out at Be a Hero for Stephenson.
Staffing for 2015-16
I received the Superintendent’s staffing allocation on Tuesday and it is in the positive! I will continue to look for additional funding sources and crunch numbers to maximize our resources until staffing is due on Friday, March 20. Details will be shared with you in that Friday’s News Note.
PTA Highlight: Providing Activities, Programs, and Supplies for Our Community
We have a special Community Meeting on Wednesday, March 18 beginning at 6:30PM in the school gym. Light dinner and childcare is available. Share your thoughts about volunteerism, sense of community, this year’s auction, next year’s events, and other topics that affect us as a community.
We also have a PTA President-elect: Cesar Villaca, parent of Vega (3rd) and Lexa (incoming K).Lynetta St. Clair, parent of Kira in Kindergarten, will be our PTA Secretary.
The TAG scores finally arrived! Per the district’s identification process, the school’s TAG Team has two weeks to submit our recommendations to the District TAG Office, which we did today. The District TAG Office will make the decision and send you a letter in the mail with their decision and the test scores.
Spring Connect to Kindergarten:
If you or a neighbor missed the January Connect to Kindergarten event, we have another opportunity coming up on Friday, April 10 from 10-11AM. This event is for adults. Please share this information with others.
I wish you all a terrific Spring Break!
PTA Meeting Tuesday, April 14 at 8AM. We hope to see you all there!
