Dear New Lebanon Families and Teachers,
As your Parent Teacher Association Co-Presidents this year, we welcome you all – new families, returning families, and teachers. We hope you enjoyed the Summer and look forward to meeting and getting to know everyone. Our new state-of-the-art school building opened in February and the second and third phases of the project are on-going. We cannot wait to see the children enjoy the two new playgrounds and our restored school field! We are excited to welcome our new Principal, Alexandra Bartholomew, and look forward to supporting her, the staff, and teachers in making this school year the best it can be for all of our children.
Last school year, the New Lebanon PTA funded worthwhile programs, events, activities, transportation, and more by spending well over $25,000. Your generous support of the New Lebanon School PTA through your membership dues and support of fundraising activities is essential for the PTA to provide these opportunities that enhance our children’s school experience.
Become a member of the New Lebanon PTA and participate in whatever way works for you – such as paying PTA dues, baking for the Election Day Bake sale, participating in the Yankee candle catalog sale, or volunteering a few minutes of your time to help re-shelve books in the Learning Commons. There are many ways to be a part of our school family. It is because of the efforts of our event chairs, parent volunteers, and the dedication of our teachers that we can offer enriching academic and cultural programs and fun family activities throughout the school year.
We encourage you attend our informative PTA meetings, which are generally held on the first Tuesday of the month at 6:45pm. Due to the Elementary School Open House, the first meeting will be on October 1st (the PTA provides childcare for NL students). PTA members are not required to attend meetings but they are helpful (& even fun).
If you have any questions or would like to share some of your ideas and thoughts, please feel free to contact us by email. Look for the weekly PTA e-newsletter, the Peek at the Week in your e-mail in boxes. You can also visit the school website at http://www.greenwichschools.org/nls for more information.
Below are some upcoming events to mark on your calendars:Go Bobcats!
