Our PTA has also prepared Spring Goodie bags for the students, those will be distributed between April 11th and 30th. The Goodie bags will not include any candy in order to be sensitive to any possible allergies.
Mr Martuccio addressed this mornings PTA members with an announcement as well as a request to follow. Our planters near the Hylan Blvd exit have been greatly expanded. Our students are in high anticipation to begin their gardening adventure. With this increased size has raised a concern, Mr Martuccio would like to ensure more convenience in maneuvering through the space with the use of pavers. The PTA has approved this request and will make the purchase to assist in the garden project.
Mr Martuccio also made it a priority to speak to our parents in attendance around the subject of this week's upcoming State Testing for grades 3-5. Our students are ready, they are confident and they, as well as all involved, families, faculty and students alike, have been encouraged to continue to be in a relaxed state, in a state of optimism and most importantly to rest assured that all is well.
There are two important dates to be reminded to calendar. on May 22nd at 6pm PTA office elections will be held. On May 11 our spring fair will be held.
Our PTA treasurer has reported the balance of funds as of February 1, 2018 as $18,084.65 and ending balance as of Tuesday, April 10, 2018 as $19,052.42
