A LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT...
Welcome McAuliffe Eagles!
Welcome all new and returning students, parents, teachers and staff to another exciting school year at McAuliffe Middle School.
PTA is the oldest and largest child advocacy association in America run by volunteers. We advocate for all children at the federal, state and local levels. Your PTA membership ensures that PTA’s voice is heard on issues affecting young people, as well as providing opportunities for parent education, communication and leadership development. We encourage all students and parents to join to help make this happen. Your membership supports our 30+ clubs, 6th ,7th ,8th grade activities, technology upgrades, parent/student education, Science Fair, Reflections Art Program, student awards and staff appreciation events to name a few.
In order to fund these efforts, we host our fall membership drive, monthly family dinner nights at local restaurants, Spring Book Fair and See’s Candy sales. We will need to continue our fundraising efforts by collecting Box Tops and have you join the “Silent Ways to Raise” program by signing up for eScrip & Ralph’s Rewards Program. Your daily purchases and support will help fund our much needed programs, events and activities for our students. We thank you in advance for participating.
I’m excited to serve as your PTA President this year. We have an exceptional team of executive board members and committee chairs that are energized and ready to help. There are many opportunities through-out the school year for parents to participate and help our Eagles succeed. A great way to get involved is go onto VolunteerSpot.com and sign up to volunteer. Another way for you to get involved is to attend our monthly meetings held on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 8:45am in the MPR. This is a great place to get connected with other parents and hear what is happening at our school. You will receive via email our McAuliffe Weekly News to keep you informed of what’s happening on/off campus.
Please check out our school website at the link below. I look forward watching our Eagles soar high above the rest!
