Almost done with PTA!

My End-of-Year Summary letter for PTA is coming off the printer now and we only have individual class parties and the Fifth Grade Graduation left of the school year.

For that matter, the class parties are mostly being planned by the teachers, so I only have to show up and help out at my two kids parties (plus the school was super nice this year and assigned the class parties separate times from each other so parents don’t have to run back and forth and back and forth across one little half hour for all their kids). The only thing PTA needs to do for Fifth Grade Graduation is to bake some cookies and deliver them to the school.

I’m looking around the house and realizing that, wow, I have a lot of PTA stuff to take back up to the school or pass off to next years board. You don’t realize how much of it comes home with you and lingers in corners and closets until you start gathering it up to give back.

In case anyone’s interested, here’s a copy of the letter I sent out for our end-of-the-year summary:End of the year letter.
