KGES LogoBACK TO SCHOOL CHECKLIST

Welcome back to our returning families! To our new families, welcome to the Kent Gardens community!

We hope you all enjoyed the fun filled summer days, and it is with great enthusiasm that we invite you to get ready for another exciting and successful school year. With your support, we can continue to make Kent Gardens academically challenging and nurturing for our children. Kent Gardens is a community based on vibrant parent involvement. Your contribution, whether it is your time, knowledge, or resources, makes a difference. We personally invite you to become an involved member at Kent Gardens!

Thank you for helping in any way you can, and showing your children the importance you place on their education:

____ JOIN THE PTA – Membership is good for this academic year, and must be renewed each year. Register online, via the PTA Membership Form, or at a Back to School event.

____ CONTRIBUTE TO #KGPRIDE ONE & DONE FUNDRAISER – This is the only PTA fundraiser for the year, i.e. no selling stuff! Our goal is 100% family participation – any contribution amount helps. Donations can be made online, via the attached paper form, or at a Back to School event.

____REGISTER YOUR GIANT REWARDS CARD – Giant and other area retailers allocate their school donations based on school family’s shopping at their stores. We need to increase our percentage of participating families. Register at www.kentgardenspta.com/programs/box-tops.

____Submit VOLUNTEER INFORMATION SHEET – Get involved with the PTA, fill out a volunteer information form and submit to the front office.

____SIGN-UP for AFTER-SCHOOL ACADEMIES– Browse the attached fall academies brochure and register for exciting class offerings via FLEX on our web-site. Registration begins on September, 7thth and classes begin on Oct 5th.

We look forward to getting to know your family. We hope you will join us for our monthly PTA meetings, beginning with our first meeting on Friday, September 23rd at 8:45am.

Please contact me anytime about PTA events, activities, getting involved or with any ideas you may have!

Sincerely,

Jenny Wormser (jennywormser@hotmail.com) and the 2016-2017, PTA Officers
