Is the countdown on at your house? Here we are on the last day of school, and the amazing art lining the walls is being sent home with our students, desks are being scrubbed clean, lockers are being emptied and our 5th graders are off to middle school.
These last couple weeks are always fun filled. Field Day was a huge success once again thanks to Ms. Shaw and the countless parents who volunteered for one shift and some all day. There isn’t any way this event would be possible without all of you!
Yearbooks are here and they are once again spectacular! Thank you to Markus Luke and the yearbook volunteers for their countless hours of shooting every event, organizing photos, and creating pages to give the kids a memento of the year. Thank you yearbook team for all your time and effort!
As the year wraps up, the PTA would like to thank all of our teachers, staff, and administrators for another great year. And thank you to all the volunteers who supported the events and programs sponsored by the PTA. It takes many volunteers who put in thousands of hours throughout the school year to fundraise, plan and run community events, and run a nonprofit organization. Thank you for making View Ridge Elementary such a special place for our children. To those valuable volunteers leaving us this year, you will be missed!
As PTA Co-Presidents we are extremely grateful for this community and honored to serve as your Presidents. Your PTA Executive Board is lucky to have Erin Thakkar returning as Co-President, Gail Ticeson returning in her new role as VP, and Jill Yamagiwa returning in her new role as Secretary. We are also very fortunate to have Julie Gordon joining the board as our new Co-President. Thank you to our outgoing Secretary Heidi Whalley for her two years of service on the board, it was invaluable!
