Thank you for your support as our year gets into full swing! Our parent community and local businesses are invaluable partners as we educate our one nearly one thousand students in ten grades, one at a time. Our PTA raises typically over one hundred thousand dollars to support Plaza Vista and over ninety five percent of that support comes from PV parents like you- thank you!Our annual PTA Pledge Drive kicks off next week and rather than listing every single thing our PTA does to support our students, below are just ten. If you are able, we would like you to consider joining our PTA and pledge what you can. At several parents’ request, we do not fund-raise anymore. 10 Awesome Things Plaza Vista PTA Supports (there are a lot more)!
- Our nearly world famous annual carnival and other community events for our school
- School improvement projects like our gardens
- Coding classes
- Positive behavior rewards
- School improvement projects like our shade structure
- Educational enrichment activities and assemblies
- Our annual arts celebration (PTA Reflections)
- Additional technology
- ASB support so middle school doesn’t have to fund-raise
- Additional curriculum for each classroom
PV PTA representatives will be in the front of the school next week giving out pledge forms, taking pledges, and selling spirit wear. Also, there is a rumor there will be coffee and treats! You can pledge and join the PTA here or the traditional way by printing this form and returning it completed with your pledge to the office and/or your child’s teacher. Volunteers at the tables will also be able to provide you with information as to other ways you can get involved and support the PV mission.Our school has nearly one device (either a Chromebook and/or an iPad) per child grades three and up. Our goal is to outfit our school 1:1 TK through eighth grade as soon as possible. Families that pledge in $200 or more will be acknowledged in the yearbook. Extra credit to those of you that have joined early and the Huerta and Panday families that have jump started the campaign by winning the parking auction!Thank you for considering being a member of our very special PTA. We hope you’ll join us along with hundreds of other PV parents in joining PTA and thereby supporting our students.
