If you are glancing through this PTA website, you are probably like most of us on the board, who also asked the questions above. We are all in this for the same reasons - to take an active role in our children's educations. PTA is so appreciative of the time our volunteers put in to support our students and staff.
PTA is planning to have the following committees during the 2021-2022 school year:
Fundraising: As a member of this committee you would work together to plan, organize, and implement any fundraisers that occur at Underwood. This committee would likely require time during and outside of school hours depending on the fundraiser. At this time the only fundraisers planned are Dinner Nights, but that could change with district protocols.
Events: As a member of this committee you would be responsible for working together to plan, organize, and run activities sponsored by the PTA that are not fundraising events. These events have not been decided on, but might include: Fall Parties, Trunk or Treat, etc.
Staff Appreciation: As a member of this committee, you would responsible for working together to recognize our amazing staff throughout the school year. This would include the Parent Teacher Conference Meal, holiday treats, and Teacher Appreciation Week. This would also include special celebrations through the year including: Custodian's Day, Counselor's Day, Principal's Day, etc.
5th/6th Grade Graduation: As a member of this committee, you would be responsible for working together with the fifth and sixth grade teachers to provide supplies and support from the Recognition Night and Graduations. We are interested in parents in K-4 for this committee, to allow 5th and 6th grade parents the opportunity to enjoy these special events with their child.
Beautification: This is a new committee that we are hoping to get up and going this year! As a member of this committee you would be responsible for helping with various projects around Underwood. This might include some landscaping projects, painting, planting flowers, seasonal decorations around the entrances, etc.
If you are wanting to volunteer or get involved this year, you can reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or watch for sign ups on our Underwood Elementary PTA Facebook page!
*We all know that COVID is making an impact on our daily lives, and the same is true for PTA. In respect to the health and safety of the UWE families, PTA events and activities will be hosted when the we are able to safely do so based on the district's "Safe Return Plan" protocols. We would love to return to all of our usual events, but we know that the number one priority is safe in-person learning during the 2021-2022 school year. The PTA is going to do everything that it can to support the school, students, and staff throughout the year, so there will be plenty of opportunities to help out and make donations throughout the school year!
