Leading with Kindness

PTA Membership Drive!

Good morning!

Last night, at Back to School Night (BTSN) 1st-5th Grades, I asked each family to do two things:

  1. Support the PTA with their membership

  2. Give generously at our most important fundraiser -- the Bushy Bear Dash

Thanks to all of you who've taken the first step!

I also shared our guiding principal, Leading with Kindness. With that guidance, the PTA will be doing a drawing from all family memberships submitted by Friday, September 6th for the children's book "All Are Welcome" by Alexandra Penfold (Author) and Suzanne Kaufman (Illustrator).

"An Amazon Books Editors' best children's book of 2018 selection. An important picture book about diversity and inclusion that shows a group of kids at school where all are welcome and all are safe." - Seira Wilson, Amazon Editor

I will announce our drawing winner in the next PTA newsletter on September 11th.

Do you have any questions for me? Please feel free to email me directly at

Have an excellent start to the school year!
