Harvey and Irma … Ways to Provide Hurricane Help

Viewing the news, we are all devastated to see the damage caused in TX by Hurricane Harvey and now our friends in FL and the southeastern states brace for Hurricane Irma. Many of our members, have been asking us for ways they can help students and school communities affected by hurricanes.  We would like to suggest the following:

You can go directly to the Texas PTA:

http://www.txpta.org/donate.

By making a donation here, you will be helping to provide direct assistance to students and classrooms affected in Texas.

Also, our National PTA has a Disaster Relief Fund established. Per the National PTA President Jim Accomando: “National PTA urges everyone to donate to our association’s Disaster Relief Fund, which was established to respond to tragedies that grievously disrupt a school or education system. National PTA’s Disaster Relief Fund is expected to be fully depleted by our support of schools impacted by Hurricane Harvey in Texas. We know we can count on our PTA members across the country to help replenish the fund to meet the emerging needs caused by Hurricane Irma.”

You can donate to the National PTA Disaster Relief Fund here:

Kids and Swimming

Our new 4th Grade Swim Program started today!  To see the kids smiles and comfort grow as they got used to the water, was incredible.  Academics are important, but so are life skills like swimming.

This program was made possible because of one of our determined parents and PTA member, Lisa Michelet, our amazing 4th grade teachers, Juanita staff, and with a grant from the PTA this idea turned into reality. This is just one example of how our PTA helps to fund and enrich our kids educational experience.
