PTA General Meeting #1 - Everyone is Welcome!

Wednesday, Sept 12th 6-7:30pm in the cafeteria

Join your New Traditions PTA for the first meeting of the year! We will hear an address from Principal Alderete, review and approve the budget for this 2018-19 school year, and learn about all of the upcoming events and fun volunteer opportunities.

 

The meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 12, from 6:00-7:30pm in the school cafeteria. Dinner and childcare will be provided. This year we’re continuing the popular “Open Art Studio with Ms. Mandy”! Sign up for childcare HERE

 

In addition, each of the four general PTA meetings of 2018-19 will contain an open forum at the end - this will be an opportunity for members to bring their concerns, questions, and ideas to the PTA board and general membership. The PTA board will document the issues brought up during the open forum, follow up on them, and report back to the general membership at subsequent meetings.

Volunteers Needed: School Tours & Enrollment Fair

 

School tour season starts in October 2018 at our school. We are seeking parent/guardian volunteers to help at the SFUSD Enrollment Fair on October 13th, and to accompany prospective families on the school tours (each morning from 8:30-9:30am the week of October 22-26).

 

Volunteers will act as touchpoints for prospective families, providing warmth and perspective as prospective families are shown around the campus, learn about before care and after care options, hear about our PTA, visit the K classrooms, and have an opportunity to meet Principal Alderete.

 

Please contact Sheri Castilyn (Giana, 5th grade) at scastilyn@gmail.com (and cc tours@newtraditionssf.com) if you are interested in donating your time for one or more tour events or for the enrollment fair.

 

Thank you!
