Dear ALMS Community,
On behalf of the ALMS PTA, we welcome you to the new school year! We hope that everyone had an enjoyable summer and is looking forward to a productive, fun year.
As always, PTA will be tailgating in front of the main entrance on the morning of the first day of school, September 6th, and hope everyone will stop by. We will be selling favorite items such as locker ladders, locks, and car magnets as well as new items for students and families to purchase in support of ALMS like hats, t-shirts, and water bottles (click here to see).
In addition, PTA volunteers will be on hand to assist staff and teachers in distributing schedules in the gym. Our parent volunteers will be there to help students, especially incoming 6th graders, navigate their first day of middle school. Please email us if you would like to come and help out.
Finally, ALMS PTA Membership Committee will be on hand to accept membership forms and dues. As many of you already know, PTA parents, teachers, and administrators advocate for quality education, inclusion, and a safe, happy, enriching environment for all of our children. As a member of ALMS PTA, one way your dues contribute to important enrichment is through our Teacher Grant Program which brings additional resources, programs, and materials to teachers and staff in the classrooms and afterschool programs. PTA also contributes to the monthly Principal’s luncheon, special programs and assemblies, 8th grade graduation, field trips, and grade-level special events as well as staff appreciation. Your membership also connects you to our bi-weekly newsletter which is full of information about events in our school and district.
ALMS PTA dues are $15.00 per person. If you can’t join on the first day of school, you can sign up online HERE or by dropping off an envelope clearly marked ALMS PTA MEMBERSHIP with a check (made out to ALMS PTA) and your membership form in the mailbox in the main office. Beyond membership dues, we are always grateful for additional contributions throughout the year. Please look out for PTA requests for specific events or contact us about how you can make further donations.
If we miss you on the first day of school, we look forward to seeing you at Back to School Night on Monday, September 18th and again on Co-curricular night on Wednesday, September 27th. Following that, our first PTA meeting of the year will be on Wednesday, October 11th at 7pm in the library. We hope you will join us there to kick off the year and to learn about ALMS’s promise of inclusion for all children and ongoing commitment to STOMP Out Bullying!
Please contact us if you have any questions at all about PTA. We look forward to seeing everyone and thank you for allowing us to serve as your PTA presidents for the 2017-2018 school year!
