Before the school year ended I received a packet from the boys’ school. I opened it up and out came a bunch of thank you cards from the 4th grade class. Many of them knew I was the president of the PTA while others only knew me as that chaperone who joined them for their 3-day field trip to Point Bonita, CA. The cards were full of cute pictures and cheerful statements that brought a tear to my eye. It was so sweet of them to send me notes.
Being part of the PTA isn’t a thankless job as some people have expressed. The kids know who help them out and they really appreciate the assistance the PTA provides.
Also, I’d like to say that this card is not just for me but for all the PTA members out there–especially the ones who helped raise funds for the field trip. Thank you PTA members!
Parents, the California state budget lacks the monies needed for your children to attend exciting field trips. Your PTA needs you. Contact your local PTA to see what you can do to help them out.
