Dear Perrywood Families,

Welcome back to school! These past 18 months have been quite difficult for everyone so we are excited to kick this year off with a bang!  Please let me introduce myself, I am Summer Johnson, your newly elected PTA President for the 2021-2022 school year!

A little about myself: 

  • I was the PTA Secretary last year.

  • I have a 2nd grader at PES.

  • I teach dance to children and am a choreographer.

Being on the PTA Board requires some work but it is also fun and rewarding. There are a few positions we still need  to fill so please contact us if you’re interested in joining the PTA Crew! We are excited to continue bringing fresh ideas to PES.

 

Meet the Board: 

  • Nailah Bowden, Vice President - Parent of a 3rd grader

  • Debra , Treasurer - Grandparent of a 5th grader

  • Nikita Woodward, Corresponding Secretary - Parent of a 5th grader

  • Chanel Williams-Cornwall, Recording Secretary - Parent of a Kindergartener

  • Open position:

    • Membership Coordinator

The purpose of the PTA is to support the school where the County falls short. We have curated events for an exciting year to enhance the educational environment for all our students.  Joining the PTA only costs $15 and allows us to offer so much to our students and teachers. Please show your support by joining the PTA, and participating in the events and fundraisers we have planned for the school year. If you see any of us walking around, please don’t hesitate to speak!

We are excited to announce the following:  

  • PTA General Body Meetings are held monthly at 8:00 am before Family Literacy Circle (FLC). These meetings are 30 minutes long and we provide budget, fundraiser, and event updates followed by a School Workshop offering useful information!

    • Our first meeting will be September 24, 2021. 

  • Popsicles on the Playground

    • Please join us on the playground in front of Perrywood ES on Friday, September 17, 2021, 7pm for popsicles and fun! (Rain Date - Sat, September 18, 2021)

    • Masks are required.

  • PTA/PES 2021-2022 Calendar. The calendar covers many of the events and activities within PES and the PTA. The most up-to-date version can always be found on the PTA website.

  • PTA Website, Facebook and Instagram. Please take the time to check out our PTA website & Facebook page. On Instagram, please use #PerrywoodPTA when posting pictures of any events this school year!  

  • You can access all of our event information and volunteer online by visiting our website www.perrywoodpta.com. To receive information in your email about upcoming events, click on “Subscribe to Emails” on the page. 

  • Please note that there are other ways to easily support your PTA via Amazon Smile and Clothing Drop-off Shed.

 

PTA Membership (click the link at the top of the home page to Join Now)

Be a Role Model!  By becoming a PTA member, you’ll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on their education. Membership is $15.00 per adult, per year.  Our goal is to have 150 PTA members for the school year. We have a goal to raise $15,000 this year to support many of our school activities and our teachers.  Not only will your membership give you a voice to advocate for the students of PES, but you are able to vote on how the fundraising dollars are spent. We ask that you volunteer and support at least one event and fundraiser this year!

Again, we encourage parents to come out to our monthly PTA meetings.  The 1st scheduled PTA General Body Meeting is September 24th, 8:00 am via Zoom.  The first 30 minutes will cover PTA business and the second half hour will be a School Workshop with useful information.  At 9:00 am the Family Literacy Circle begins and allows for an opportunity to watch and encourage your child’s public speaking skills.

As a  friendly reminder, please review PES’ Parking Lot Policy located on our PTA Website. Parking lot volunteers are there to keep everyone safe. Please be courteous!

On behalf of the PTA Board of Directors and all the volunteers, I wish everyone a productive 2021-2022 school year.  Should you have any questions, please feel free to email us at perrywoodpta@gmail.com.  

Summer Johnson

PTA President
