PTA Meeting Recap

We had a full discussion on Wednesday 2/11. We talked about:

  • The early success of the Walkathon. Please send in your money per how many laps you’ve done and thank you to those who have already done so!
  • The Science Fair. We need a coordinator if we want it to happen this year — it’s a PTA-run event. Please email president [at] miravistaschool.com if you have project management skills and want to organize this short but highly popular event. We can provide templates and coaching.
  • Gardens. We have been awarded several fantastic grants thanks to our stellar Grant Writing team in the PTA. Joint co-chairs Toni Mohr and Patti Tom have done a terrific job continuing to organize work dates and apply for grants. Thank you, ladies! Check our Garden Blog (an off-shoot of our main website) for updates about our gardens.
  • STEM club is going strong and tons of fun activities are being explored each week. You can also check our STEM Blog (another off shoot of our main site) for activity information.
  • Cultural Night is coming! Nancy Ng is coordinating again this year and it promises to be an amazing event. We need help though — please send an email to Sierra at president {at] miravistaschool.com to help with this amazing night.
  • There are a few really great projects on Donors Choose right now for Mira Vista. Here is one, for video equipment so we can keep making great movies about our school. There is only 20 days left to donate on that, so take a look! We also have a project on the Science of Money from Mrs. V with only 11 days left to fund.

Finally, our PTA meeting was attended by parents who care about making the decisions for the PTA’s direction, but the number of attendees represented less than 1% of our school’s families. Attendance is never a problem, but we encourage you to have a voice. Attend these meetings, munch on really good snacks, and have a say in what we do at the school — a single voice matters.
