SWANSFIELD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PTA

PTA AND VOLUNTEER WEBSITE

 

Good Day!

 

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 ptapresident@swansfieldpta.org or 410 941-9365.

May Staff Appreciation:

 

Dear Parents:

 

Please see the two flyers for the Staff Appreciation week in May - we really need everyone’s help. This is a big event and great time to say thanks to the Staff of Swansfield who take such great care of our children during the year. So please send in something for the gift bags and sign up for at least one day of food.  We are feeding about 100 plus staff per day. If we have talked to you in the past about donating please get back to us.  I know there were a few people that we have talked to and have not be able to get back in touch with - contact either Stacey or myself.

We will have our fifth Walk or Bike to School Day here at Swansfield.  Walk your bike to the back of the school when you arrive and we will secure it on the kickball field for the day while you’re in class.  When you are dismissed at the end of the day you can come to the field to pick up your bike.  You can also use the bike racks in front of the school to store your bike as long as you bring a lock.  Please be safe and remember to wear a helmet.
