Welcome Santiago Families, Students and Teachers,
It’s the start of a new year, and let’s agree that none of us wanted our kiddos to start off school this way. That being said, I still think this can be a very positive and rewarding year for the students, and we can ALL play a role in making this happen. This year the Santiago STEAM Magnet PTA is focusing on Building Community. Engaging families and students, interacting with the local business community, encouraging diversity inclusion, supporting teachers, and creating quality programs and activities to bring everyone together.
I urge you to become a part of this PTA community. Starting off the year remotely without a definitive date of return, the PTA will be trying harder than ever to maintain the strong bonds of friendship, comradery from working together, and connectedness of being a part of a solid organization. Strong schools depend on the volunteerism and activism of a community that makes up the PTA. Anyone can join – Parents,Grandparents, Aunts/Uncles, Neighbors, etc. We need all the help we can get.
We’re planning a lot of things this year, and need help with even more outside of the box ideas.
Even if you don’t think you have time to volunteer, I still encourage you to join, so you’ll be updated on all the projects and activities we are offering. Furthermore, there are many ways to support the PTA. Please take a look at the checklist below, and consider helping in every way you can. Every little bit helps, and many things on the checklist require no more work than signing up.
I look forward to a productive year and an even stronger community by the time we’re on the other side of all of this.
Thank you for your interest, involvement and support of the Santiago STEAM Magnet PTA.
