Welcome new and returning students and families to Richland Creek Elementary School. I am excited to be joining the PTA board again this year, but this year as your PTA President. We have been busy this summer, organizing a new board, new committee's, planning, and preparing for our 2018-2019 school year events and school programs that will take place throughout the upcoming school year.
We hope you will join us for our up coming 2018-2019 family oriented school activities!
A little history on the PTA, it is the oldest and largest child advocacy association in America. Today’s PTA is comprised of members who share a commitment to making a difference in the education, health and safety of all children. It is an organization that promotes collaboration among parents, the school and the community. The number one reason to join the PTA is to benefit your child, but every individual who joins the PTA helps not only his or her own child but every child. Your children are important to you and they are important to us! Children will learn more and perform better in school when parents are involved in their education and of course our children all enjoy having the support of their family members.
We can only provide academic and cultural activities throughout the school year because of the strong volunteer efforts of our parents and the dedication of our teachers. Our fundraising helps provide the funds needed to each of our grade levels so our children can take enriching trips, attend assemblies and participate in wonderful events like field day, family dances, free T-shirts, movie nights, early release lunches for our teachers and many more.
Please take the time to read about our committees and view the open positions we have currently, by checking out our COMMITTEES PAGE or VOLUNTEER NEEDS PAGE. Each of these positions are vital to our success. Through the following link rcesnc.memberhub.com/join/3b2u0g you can join our member-hub, where you can pay for your PTA membership, and print your membership cards, receiver member updates. Your membership will provide you with membership resources and year-round savings from PTA member benefit providers. You can also download the member form here if you would rather just send it into the school. This year we will also enter all our members into a drawing each month to receive a $25 gift certificate. Your involvement is how our PTA stays strong and our children achieve success!
We welcome your feedback so please contact us if you have any questions or comments please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.. Thank you and have a wonderful school year!
