Welcome Back! Fall 2018 President's Message

Gayle P

Welcome everyone to the 2018-19 school year. It's nice to see so many new faces mixed in with the familiar ones. I hope everyone is settling in to the school year routine but please know if you ever have any questions, I am just an email away (president@bfdayptsa.org). 

Your PTSA has many fun events planned this year, starting off with a Family Dinner on October 18 at 5pm, right before the Fall PTSA General Membership Meeting. We hope you are able to make it, as it is a fun, delicious, community-building event. And if you're interested in getting involved, I'm sure the planning committee would love more help. 

If you would like to learn more about the PTSA, all of our meetings are open to anyone interested in attending. The Board meets monthly on the second Monday at 6 in the library (except in November when we meet on Tuesday) and we love new faces and new ideas. 

I would like to give a shout out to Seattle Pops for the delicious popsicles at the Ice Cream Social, Mike Sweeney for organizing the Social, Daniella Kim and team for preparing those informative first day packets, Lighthouse coffee for providing coffee at 3 morning events, Eltana for the yummy bagels on the first day of school, and everyone who brought in food for the first day of kindergarten/pre-K. Also I want to thank all the United Way volunteers who donated their time for Day of Caring to help beautify our school. 

Speaking of school beautification, if you have any ideas on ways to brighten the halls and classrooms of our school, please let us know as we are forming a school beautification committee and will hopefully have some painting parties planned during a long weekend or school break. 

I wish you all a wonderful school year and please reach out with any questions or suggestions. I hope to see you at Curriculum Night on October 4 at 5:30 or the Family Dinner on October 18 at 5!

Gayle Perez
