Dear Bixby Families –
Welcome to the Bixby PTA 2020 – 21 school year!
We are so happy to reunite with our school and PTA community. Amidst the unknowns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we know that we are Better Together – which is our membership theme for the 2020 – 21 school year.
While your PTA Board has a long list of highlights and programs to share for the upcoming school year – ensuring the hard-earned dollars of our students’ fundraising activities are put to productive use is a group effort. While we certainly plan for the best with the uncertainties presented to us, we cannot guarantee that all our usual activities will take place in the same way we have seen in the past.
This is exactly why we need you to join the PTA – and make us Better Together. More than ever, we will look to our members to guide how funds are spent andensure programs and classroom support are aligned with the needs of our membership. We need you to join in on the fun as committee members, Chairs, or Board members as we have a few vacancies this year.
All expenditures, activities, programs, and classroom support funding are voted on by our members. Therefore, as incoming families, we encourage you to become a member today!
The first PTA meeting scheduled to take place on Tuesday, September 8th. Those who have signed up by Monday, September 7th are eligible to vote on the many items slated for this meeting. For future meetings, eligibility to vote is extended to those who have been a registered member for at least 30-days.
To sign-up, please visit: www.joinbixbypta.com. Memberships are open to each member of the family and are $8 per person through September 7th. Passing of the new bylaws may increase membership costs to $10 so save money and sign-up now!
For membership related questions, please feel free to contact our VP Membership, April Walker, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to being Better Together with this years’ Florence Bixby PTA!
