Happy September from the PTA. Here are some items to keep in mind as we begin the school year:

  • This Wednesday (Sept. 9) from 6-7:30 pm in the cafeteria is the first PTA meeting of the school year. Watch for the agenda via the listserv on Monday and please join us. There will be childcare and pizza for the kids during the meeting. Sign up here (suggested but not required).
  • The Enrichment Committee will send out initial lottery results for PTA-sponsored enrichment classes on Monday, September 7. Please watch your email for these results because the deadline to confirm your child’s spot is Friday, September 11. Enrollment for pay-as-you-go enrichment classes is ongoing. For all enrichment questions, please visit the the Enrichment page or email enrichment@hearstes.org.
  • Please use this link to submit information for the Hearst directory. Michelle Hill hopes to have the first draft available for early October distribution, but that depends on getting information back from parents in the next week or so.
  • The auction committee will begin meeting soon to plan our annual spring auction and we are actively seeking a co-chairperson and volunteers. Please contact Denise Dawkins at dawkinsclass@gmail.com.
  • It's not too early to begin collecting and putting aside your old electronics for the Hearst e-cycle on Nov. 7 (Saturday).
