A word from our PTO
As the newly elected PTO President, I wanted to take this opportunity to welcome you and your families to Calhoun Academy!
I am excited to be taking on this new responsibility as I know how valuable PTO's support has been in the past. Did you know that the PTO was able to help purchase equipment for the lunchroom? Provide the cover for the breezeway between the lunchroom and the lower school building? Provide field trip support throughout the year? Provide art supplies and other needed classroom materials?
Our most recent accomplishment was to donate $15,000 towards the purchase of iPads for all teachers K5-12 and the new iMac computers in the upper school computer lab!
These projects would not have been possible without the support of our parents and families at CA. Your time with wrapping paper sales, the Harvest Carnival and support in other PTO activities has made all this possible.
This year, I am glad to be joined by two other officers: Angela Burns, Vice President, and Linda Wright, Treasurer. Together, we have come up with a lot of exciting activities to continue PTO's tradition of supporting CA teachers, staff and students. Some of the activities include:
• Harvest Carnival – October 27th
• Pictures with Santa
• Daddy/Daughter Dance
• Family Fun Nights
All this can only be done with your continued support. There are no membership dues to join, we just ask that you volunteer on a committee and attend our meetings. I encourage each of you to get involved – help us make this the BEST YEAR YET for PTO!!
