We are in the Home Stretch of the 2018-2019 PTO Season.
The Field Day preparations are complete. Now all we need is good weather. Fingers crossed! Make sure that the students follow the directions that Mr. Wnek sent home in the blast on Friday. Wear your color, wear old sneakers, bathing suits under clothes, towel should have your name on it and bring a reusable water bottle if you have one. Also make sure each class has someone responsible for the watermelon and water. As always we can use more volunteers. If you did not sign up but have the time, please stop by. We can always use an extra set of hands. Let the games begin!
2019-2020 PTO COMMITTEE SIGN-UPS
Every year at the last PTO meeting the sign ups for ALL committees and Class Parents are made available. This year, as in the past, the sign up sheets will be available at the last PTO meeting on June 18th at 8:30am. If you are committed and interested in a committee or class parent position, this will be the first available opportunity to sign up. This year the descriptions for each committee will be provided on the sign up sheet so each person understands the duties that they are committing to.
After June 18th the list will reside in the Sea Girt Elementary School Office so it is centrally located for all who are interested. As has always been the standard with the Sea Girt PTO, a class parent position should rotate each year. Meaning that the same parents should not be signing up for the class parent position if they performed that duty the year prior. This standard was established many years ago in order to give other parents the availability to have this position. If a position is not filled we will certainly reach out to all in order to make sure each class has the appropriate number of class parents.
Due to the feed back and turnout we are going to alternate the PTO meetings moving forward to try to reach a broader audience. The next meeting will be June 18th , Tuesday and will be in the morning at 8:30 am at Shore Pour on Washington Avenue. We are hoping for another good turnout and the support of class representatives. We will be discussing all the great upcoming events and also the filling the volunteer needs. We encourage the class parents to attend to receive the most updated information.
Here is what else is coming up…..

The PTO thanks all the families for their continued support in moving forward all the activities and fundraisers throughout the year. Without the support of the administration and families we could not meet our mission.
