Presidents' notes for the week of September 21st...

Thank you to everyone that was able to attend the Head Room Parent and General PTA meeting last Tuesday.  We had a wonderful turn out.  The 2015-2016 budget was presented and approved.  Our next General PTA meeting will be October 6th, 3:45pm in the Forest Glen Library.  The only item on the agenda will be voting on the proposed bylaws.  If you would like to review the bylaws please CLICK HERE.

If you are on Facebook, make sure to “like and follow” our PTA.  We send out reminders for events and other great info!  CLICK HERE to see our page!

We Are One T-Shirt Update:  The new t-shirts have been delivered and look SO MUCH BETTER than the prior ones.  We will be sorting them next week and expect to deliver them to teachers on Monday, September 27th and to students on Tuesday, September 28th.  Make sure to mark your calendars to wear them to school for Spirit Wear Day on October 2nd.
