[06/01/14] Parents -- the year is drawing to an end and we are still looking for parents interested in holding Board positions for the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). All positions are open. MOST IMPORTANTLY, we need a PTO President. The current President has been in the position for 2 years and is ready to move on. Let me be clear...if we don't get someone to run the PTO, THERE WILL BE NO PTO. Events that the PTO runs will not happen, money will not be raised to pay for special programs, toys and other needs to your child's classroom. The position is not very time consuming. If you have ANY interest please get in touch with Kimberly Thomas at [email protected] or speak with Beth. Thank you!
Hello parents!! This coming week is Teacher Appreciation Week!! Please take a second to tell your teachers how much you appreciate them...they work hard for us and our kids!!! In addition to breakfast on Monday, the PTO also is giving each teacher a special gift on both Tuesday and Thursday as a token of OUR appreciation!!
Please don't forget to sign up to bring something Wednesday and Friday. I know the teachers love having lunch and dessert provided for them!!
Parents! The Goddard PTO is looking for nominations for all Board positions for the 2014-2015 school year! This includes: President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Community Service Chair, Fundraising Chair and Room Parent Coordinator. The time commitment for any of them is fairly small but so important!!!
If you *think* you might be interested in one or more of these positions (or you know someone who would be great), please email the current President, Kim Thomas, at [email protected]. Thanks!!

This is your chance to declutter and/or trade any books that you have that your kids have either outgrown or don't like....drop them in the bucket!!! Kids not babies anymore but you have all the board books...drop them in the bucket! If you like, write down how many you contributed and you can take that many at the book swap on Math night next week. New books for your kids to read!!
