THAT’S A WRAP!
SGES PTO End of Year Letter
As my term as President of the Sea Girt Elementary School PTO comes to a close when I reflect on my time spent, not only in a leadership role but also as a volunteer, I SMILE! I SMILE because of the people I have met and with whom I have been privileged to collaborate. I SMILE because I know that the SGES PTO makes a difference. I SMILE because I know that I have made a difference over the years. I SMILE because the students have been the benefactor of great enrichment’s and programs sponsored by the SGES PTO. I SMILE because the PTO has been able to provide scholarships to deserving students. I SMILE because the PTO has been able to provide supplies for teachers and support staff. I SMILE because the PTO continues to support art, art appreciation, school trips, plays, assemblies, field day, game night, dances, and other activities for the students beyond the classroom. I SMILE because the PTO had exceptional fundraisers which allowed us to support both interior and exterior school improvements at a greater level. I SMILE because the PTO has continued to forge relationships with the Boosters, the SGES, the parents, the BOE and the Council. I SMILE because the SGES PTO continues to work together for a common goal that benefits the students. I SMILE because the students make me SMILE!
When I began my term as PTO Co-President I was lucky enough to work with Marjorie Kane. Working together we were able to take the PTO to the next level. With the help and support of the executive board the 2018-2020 the PTO was able to create an online presence and allow easier payments and access to information. The 2018-2020 PTO was also able to establish a social presence which resonated with the parents and beyond. The 2018-2020 SGES PTO continued the great work of the prior PTO Boards. I am confident with the new slate of PTO Executive Board Members for 2020-2022 they will take it even further.
Lastly, I am PROUD! I am a PROUD parent of a graduating 8th grade student who had the wonderful opportunity to attend Sea Girt Elementary School where everyone knows your name! I am PROUD to have been supported by my family and friends during these past 2 years. I am PROUD of the work that the 2018-2020 PTO Board has accomplished. I am PROUD that that I have been a volunteer for the PTO. I am PROUD that the PTO entrusted me with the position of President. I am PROUD that we continue to support staff, teachers and students during difficult times. I am PROUD that the PTO is a collaboration of so many that work behind the scenes to support so much. I am PROUD of the Executive Board, Aimee Geyer-Mihalic, Carey Begley, Ally Stevens, Kerri Walsifer, Alice Hayes Keefe, and Marjorie Kane.
To the new PTO Executive Board of the Sea Girt Elementary School 2020-2022, always do things that make you and others SMILE and that continue to make you PROUD!
Thank you…Hoffmann out!
With Patriot Pride
