Join us at our November PTA Meeting – 11/5 at 630pm at NHE

Hello Parents, Teachers, Principals, and Community Members,

I hope you and your families are well and enjoying the fall weather that has finally arrived.

Last Thursday, my daughter and I handed out bagged breakfasts to the bus drivers and crossing guard at NHE, a PTA effort organized by one of our volunteer parents. During this experience I was struck by three things. The first was the joy and appreciation that each bus driver and crossing guard expressed upon receiving a bag. The second was my daughter’s joy and pride in helping me complete the task. The third was students’ curiosity in what my daughter and I were doing and their smiles when we told them.

The seemingly small effort of honoring our bus drivers and crossing guards with bagged breakfasts made a large impression on all those involved and beyond. To me, this is what being a a member of the PTA is all about; working together to create a strong, vibrant, and caring community that extends beyond our schools’ walls.

With this in mind, I would like to invite you to our next PTA meeting on Tuesday, November 5th from 6:30-7:30 at NHE. Babysitting will be provided.

Come learn about our upcoming activities and advocacy priorities, add your voice to the conversation, and see how you can get involved! The agenda is attached.

Warmly,

Michelle, PTA President, mom of 2nd grade student

Hola padres, maestros, directores y miembros de la comunidad,

Espero que usted y sus familias estén bien y disfruten del clima de otoño que finalmente ha llegado.El jueves pasado, mi hija y yo repartimos desayunos en bolsas a los conductores de autobuses y la guardia de cruce en NHE, un esfuerzo de la PTA organizado por la miembro. Durante esta experiencia me sorprendieron tres cosas. El primero fue la alegría y el aprecio que cada conductor de autobús y guardia de cruce expresaron al recibir una bolsa. El segundo fue la alegría y el orgullo de mi hija por ayudarme a completar la tarea. El tercero fue la curiosidad de los estudiantes sobre lo que estábamos haciendo mi hija y yo y sus sonrisas cuando les dijimos.

El esfuerzo aparentemente pequeño de honrar a nuestros conductores de autobuses y guardias de cruce con desayunos embolsados causó una gran impresión en todos los involucrados y más allá. Para mí, de esto se trata ser miembro de la PTA; trabajando juntos para crear una comunidad fuerte, vibrante y solidaria que se extienda más allá de los muros de nuestras escuelas.

Con esto en mente, me gustaría invitarlo a nuestra próxima reunión de la PTA el martes 5 de noviembre de 6:30-7:30 en NHE. Se proporcionará cuidado de niños.¡Venga a conocer nuestras próximas actividades y prioridades de defensa, agregue su voz a la conversación y vea cómo puede participar! Se adjunta la agenda.

Saludos cordiales,

Michelle, director de la PTA, mamá de un estudiante en segundo grade.
