Welcome families old and new! I sincerely hope that everyone had a wonderful summer and enjoyed some rest, relaxation, and quality family time.
Ogle’s theme for 2017-2018 school year is Team Ogle and the PTA is excited to be on the team! With the support of parents, like you, and the community we are ready for a successful year. Thank you to all who attended the Pep Rally last week. Meet the Teacher Night is August 18th and the First Day of School is August 21st. Be sure to stop by the PTA booth and join us! In each of the classrooms there will be a sheet to sign up and volunteer, as well. Visit us in the library on the first day of school for a little grab-n-go style breakfast and inquire about how you can help the PTA help our kids and our school. Many hands make light work; we are all very busy but there are many ways to contribute and it may take much less of your time than you think.
We are excited about the programs being planned! Ogle Games will take place on September 22nd and our Boosterthon Fun Run will be the last week in October, to name a couple. There is also Book Fair, the Science Store, and many others that welcome volunteer support. Volunteer orientation takes place September 8th and all PTA volunteers will receive an appreciation gift. Find your niche as a Room Parent, Watch Dog Dad, Thursday Crew, Committee Volunteer, etc. Be sure to check out our calendar of events on this website.
Thank you to every individual member this year!! Your membership is a powerful tool and positive model for the students and community, alike. More than 85 research studies conducted over the past 30 years prove that kids do better when parents are involved. Grades are higher. Test scores improve. Attendance increases. You’ll have first-line input for student and teacher resources and our ability to provide superior programs, activities and events for the students and entire Ogle Family.
It is parents like you, along with our AMAZING staff at Ogle that give our kids a foundation for excellence in education that will set them apart, now and in the future. I am honored to serve as President of Ogle’s PTA for the 2017-2018 school year and I hope you will join me in lending our skills to serve our friends and support our Ogle Family. Thank you past and current members, and thank you in advance to those of you who are new, and welcome serving unselfishly in support of our little friends, staff, and our wonderful school. We truly couldn't do what we do without each and every one of you!
Proud to Serve, ~ Amy Castellano Ogle PTA President 2017-2018
