A very warm thanks

 

To our tireless Executive and our committed and resourceful PVG we want to extend our very sincere thanks for a truly amazing school year.  We all feel the wonderful energy from you, our parent volunteers, that has shown itself time and time again this year at so many historic and new events. We cannot say enough about your dedication and positive approach to all things that have been asked of you.  We wish you and your families a very well deserved break this summer and we look forward to collaborating again for the 2017/18 school year on some old and many new exciting projects. 

 

For those of you who will now be serving on the Executive we are anticipating both a fun and productive year ahead.  For those of you who will be joining the PVG again next year we are looking forward to hearing your new and exciting ideas for enhanced parent engagement and support for our children.

 

We welcome all of you and any other parents (new to school or otherwise) who you know may be interested in joining the PVG to our welcome meeting in September.  The date is tentatively September 8 at either 8:30 or 4:30(same meeting twice).  Look out for emails toward the end of August for the confirmation of date and time.

 

Happy travels, happy resting or a bit of both.

 

Danielle and Helen, UTSPA Co-Presidents
