Dear Redland Oaks Families,
I would like to welcome back all of our returning families. And to our new families, we are excited for you to become part of our wonderful community. Redland Oaks is an amazing school because its faculty, staff, students and parent volunteers work tirelessly to make Redland Oaks a shining star. Let’s continue to work together to make the 2017-2018 year the best one yet!
I am honored and excited to serve as your 2017-18 PTA President. As we welcome you to a new school year, I would like to extend the invitation and nudge to join your school’s PTA. Your dues help to fund so many experiences and programs that our children would not be able to benefit from, without your help. Our wonderful art program, field trips, our Math Superstars program, Peppermint Village and various family programs throughout the year, are just a few of the places your membership dues contribute to. And while we would love to see your smiling faces in the form of volunteer hours, please know that you do not have to donate any time to join the PTA. As a member, your dues help enrich your child’s environment at school, as well as giving you a vote at any general meetings. I truly hope you will consider joining the PTA to help further our school’s excellence!
There are many ways in which you can donate your time or resources. Our teachers and staff work so energetically to push our students to greatness. Throughout the year, we are in need of volunteers and donations for various events, from our Grandparents Luncheon to our Scholastic Book Fair. In addition to your option to join the PTA, your child will be coming home with a Volunteer Interest Form. Please take a look at it and see which areas would interest you. And if you can’t decide, just “check all” at the bottom of the form. Our Volunteer Coordinator will contact you throughout the year about all of our volunteer opportunities.
Again, I am so excited for this upcoming school year and to see our children continue to grow in our wonderful school. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or comments you have. Thank you for your time and I can’t wait to meet all of you throughout the year!
