Welcome Running Springs Families!
I hope everyone has enjoyed their first few weeks of school and are settling into the new routine. I am very excited for the new school year and to be serving as President of the PTA. I hope that you have had an opportunity to go online at www.runningspringspta.org for our complete PTA First Day Packets. During the registration process online you have had the opportunity to sign up for our directory, provide your program interests and submit your volunteer choices. You also have the opportunity to purchase items such as; Birthday Book Club, Yearbook, Earthquake Kits, PTA Membership, and Run-A-Thon Donations. For your convenience, we are offering a credit card payment option with no convenience fee which is ONLY available online through our store. Whether you are paying online or submitting your orders with a check, please note that ALL orders are due Friday, September 5th so hurry and take advantage of these special offers! Please note that EVERYONE needs to turn in to school the PTA Tally Sheet and Parent/Student Waiver with a copy of your online receipt if paying by credit card or with the completed order forms and ONE check made payable to Running Springs PTA.
Our “Catch The Wave!” Membership Drive is up and running! Please help us in our efforts by joining our Running Springs PTA. Dues are only $8 and everyone is welcome to participate. You will be adding your voice to one of the largest organizations helping to promote the well being of children and their education.
This year, more than ever, PTA needs your help!
By participating in our PTA One and ONLY fundraiser, the 5th Annual Redhawk Run-A-Thon, PTA will be able to continue to provide our students with incredible learning opportunities that may not otherwise be available to our children. Please see the Run-A-Thon article of this newsletter for more information. Thank you in advance for your generosity. PTA meetings are held the second Thursday of the month at 8:15 a.m. in the multi-purpose room. Please note there is no PTA meeting in the month of September.
In order to conserve both environmentally and economically, we are going to an ONLINE ONLY newsletter starting in October. The newsletter will be just as informative and easy to access. When you sign up through the directory you will receive the newsletter in your email box. You’ll have all the current news right at your fingertips!
Thank you for your continued support. I look forward to seeing you at our next PTA meeting!
