LETTER FROM OUR PARENTS’ ASSOCIATION PRESIDENT
Dear SJEDS Parents,
When my son started SJEDS in 2006, I believe I was more anxious than he was! The new routine to get accustomed to, the bigger place to find our (my!) way around in, the logistics of it all. However, the biggest unknown for me: ALL OF THE NEW FACES!
Over the past seven years, I’ve grown to love the incredible group of people (from our wonderful teachers and staff to our awesome parents and children) that make up the SJEDS family. And without a doubt, what has most given me that sense of belonging is volunteering.
As one of our past PA presidents Catherine Kirkpatrick said, “There is no question in my mind that volunteering in our school is a win-win for all of us. We provide support to our teachers, we enrich the experience of our children, and we develop a network of friends that you would be hard pressed to find anywhere else.”
Our incredible Parents’ Association provides a tremendous variety of services and events to our school – our children. And your help – in any way, big or small – is what makes it all happen.
Please visit our Parents’ Association page to find your best fit, note the symbols indicating “great way to meet other parents” to “flexible”… etc. Please feel free to email me at angela@AngelaHarrisDesign.com – or one of our committee chairs – to get involved, ask questions or offer suggestions.
Looking forward to a wonderful New (school) Year!
All the best,
2013-14 SJEDS Parents’ Association President
