President’s Note: Happy Spring!

I hope that you had a restful and rejuvenating spring break, one that will help push you to the end of the school year!  I first want to thank all who participated with their children in the Read-A-Thon. We are so enthused with it’s success.  Thank you to the Superhero Readers and Superhero Fundraisers! With the money we raised from this fundraiser, we will be able to continue to fund the programs that the Northside PTA has traditionally budgeted for, such as field trip supplements, cultural arts programming, teacher grants and stipends, professional development for teachers and staff, and much much more!  It is incredibly encouraging to see our school community come together to help our children’s’ educations.

Looking forward, there are many events in April that we hope you will participate in.  Please take a look at the calendar in this newsletter for dates and times.

On Thursday, April 12, Northside will host its annual International Navigator Night.  The evening will begin with a PTA meeting at 5:30. Please come to the meeting to meet your board and committee members and hear about our plans for next year.  We have several committee positions to fill, so please join us to learn more about how you can be involved in the future.

Monday, April 22 kicks off Staff Appreciation week.  Look for more information to come about how you can help show our teachers and staff how much we love them.

I look forward to a warm and busy spring, and hope to see you around school.
