Reminder of PTA Meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 8, at 7:00 pm, Media Center

posted Feb 7, 2011, 6:29 PM by Chris Miller
The meeting will open with a short business meeting and a short presentation by GW staff about the AVID program.  The program portion of the meeting will be a community dialogue about the revised proposal to amend the school calendar and schedule. Several school board members plan to attend. Attached is a copy of the revised proposal. (You are also welcome to attend the Alexandria PTA Council meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 9 at 7:00 pm in the Minnie Howard library, where this proposal will also be discussed, if that better fits your schedule.)

At our meeting on Tuesday, we will once again be collecting some supplies
 that our teachers have requested for their classrooms: pencils, tissues, paper towels, hand soap, hand held pencil sharpeners, dry erase markers, post it notes, 3x5 index cards, lined paper, highlighters, pens, Sharpies, composition notebooks, and glue sticks.  These small items make a huge difference to them in the classroom.

We also encourage you to bring your Box Tops for Education and Campbell's Labels for Education.   We hope to collect as many Box Tops as possible before the end of February, which is the deadline for submission in order to receive payment for them by the end of the school year.

Thank you for your time, and we hope to see you Tuesday. 

Melynda Wilcox, President
