Emerald Park PTSA
What a month we had in February! All of the fun things that were cancelled due to the snow have been rescheduled for March and that means that there are lots of opportunities to help out either at the school or from home. (Remember that book fair volunteers receive a 20% discount on their purchases!)
Mindy Hales, President
In this issue:
A big thank you to everyone who helped make this year’s talent show such a success. From the student performers, to the emcees, and the stage crew; thank you for your efforts.
Thank you also to the parent volunteers: Christie Rosengren, Arlene Magadamit, and Mindy Hales. Two of these ladies will not be at Emerald Park next year and so we are desperately looking for volunteers passionate about allowing children to perform. Please contact us if you are able to take on this event next year.
One last thank you to Carrie at Quick Signs and Designs for helping us make those amazing gigantic teacher heads that we used for the surprize ending. You can re-watch the teachers breaking it down on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=94WvJTtKYjE

Come talk to any PTSA member at our next activity for ideas on how to get started.
