Swansfield PTA welcomes you back for the 2013-2014 school year. I hope everyone enjoyed their summer.
I would like to introduce myself, my name is Iraina Nelson-Brooks and I will be serving as your PTA President for the next two years. Previously, I held the role on the Swansfield PTA as Recording Secretary and also assisted with coordinating PTA events throughout the year. Additionally, I feel privileged to also be a Swansfield parent since 2009. My oldest daughter graduated in 2011 and my two younger children are currently in the 5th grade and 1st grade.
The PTA is currently holding our annual membership drive. It is important for parents to be involved please consider joining the PTA and being a part of the largest association in the nation advocating for the rights of every child. Being a member of the PTA ensures that students receive quality education and the support of the community as a whole. This will enable parents, teachers and administrators to work together.
I believe Swansfield has a strong history of parent/family involvement, so parent’s thank you! I hope you can continue to contribute anyway possible whether it be time, donations or both. Participation in the PTA enables children to feel like they are a part of the community that supports them in everything they do.
Please join me in making this one of the most memorable and successful years at Swansfield!
I look forward to seeing everyone at our first event the Ice Cream Social on Aug 29th 6:30pm -8:00pm.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 410 941-9365.
