PTO Newsletter – May 31, 2020
The Sea Girt PTO would like to thank all the new at home “teachers” that have played a major part during this unprecedented time. The students truly benefit from all your help and support. Who would have thought you would be adding another skill to your resume? We also continue to commend the teachers, administration and their creativity during this time to keep the students creatively and actively learning.

Sea Girt PTO Meeting
The virtual meeting was a success and well attended. We look forward to hosting another meeting in June to close out the year. The link and more information to come. This will be a ZOOM meeting hosted by the Sea Girt Elementary School. Please make every effort to attend this meeting.
HOPE TO SEE ALL OF YOUR SMILING FACES!
Sea Girt Library-Book Project
The PTO has been in discussion with the Sea Girt Library. Even though the library is not open at this time, they have launched an initiative to capture this moment in time of quarantine with a Book Project. The Sea Girt Library is hoping students and their families will contribute short “essays” on how their lives have changed during this time (in school, celebrating holidays, with family, or anything else). In terms of length, the maximum is 600 words and there is no minimum.
We are asking people to email their info to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Any questions you can also contact Lisa Luke, Library Director.
New this email blast is the ability to order the Sea Girt Elementary School supplies online for next year. This is totally voluntary, not mandatory. The teachers and administration in conjunction with the Sea Girt PTO have put together the supplies needed by grade level. If you decide to order online the packages will be there awaiting the student on the first day of school. In addition as an added bonus, the Sea Girt PTO gets a small amount of money donated back from the supplier. Every little bit helps! Please click the following link to browse and see if this is an option for you and your family. http://1stdayschoolsupplies.com/kits.php?sid=67884
Sea Girt Strong
We also ask that you keep sharing the great photos of home learning and activities with #seagirtstrong. It is great to see all the ingenious ways families and kids and learning and making it fun.
As this continued quarantine is in place the Sea Girt PTO will still be here to support the students and staff and will continue to push out only pertinent information as needed so as not to bombard you during this time. We have cut back on the emails and media as most families are focusing on other issues now and juggling jobs and homeschooling. The PTO wants to stay connected to our Sea Girt Elementary School families and hopes everyone is social distancing while enjoying the downtime with family and the outdoors. We are ALL navigating these uncharted waters together and will continue to share ideas, updates and things to do during this difficult time.
Also to our audience at large if you have something that we the Sea Girt community can do as a whole to help out those who are working and who are on the front lines of this please feel free to share with the Sea Girt PTO and we will blast it out to all.
STAY FAMILY FOCUSED
With Patriot Pride,
The Sea Girt PTO Board
