PTA President Welcome Letter

August 10, 2018

Dear Addison Family,

We hope you all had a summer filled with discovery, joy, and quality family time and are ready for an extraordinary 2018-2019 school year! Addison and it’s campus may look different as we undergo our renovation but our children and families will still be treated to the tremendous educational experience we have all come to know and love.

As your PTA President, I want to thank the teachers, staff, the PTA board, and countless volunteers who so cheerfully and indefatigably contributed so much energy and time toward making last year so exceptional. I would also like to let each and every one of you know that I am ALWAYS available to talk about any ideas, comments, or questions you have as we continually strive to make Addison even better. Your voice matters to us and we truly value every student and parent at Addison, so please feel free to come and find me after school.

We will continue to advocate for every student, teacher, and parent as our goal is to give all students every opportunity to succeed in school and in life! As a parent, coach, and former teacher it’s one of my most deeply held beliefs that the most important thing that we can do for our children is equip them with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to lead a healthy, happy, and meaningful life filled with joyous and useful contributions.

For Kindergarten families, this packet contains everything you need to start the year off on the right foot. For returning and Grades 1-5 families, the online version of the Back-to-School Info packet provides the same important info!

One major change for the PTA this year is payment options. In addition to submitting paper forms in the office, families are encouraged to use the online One-Payment Form for sign-ups and payments for all PTA items.

Thank you to the entire Addison community for making it such a special place for our children to grow, learn, and discover the wonderful opportunities around us all each and every day!

Warmest regards,

JC Renners

PTA President
