Welcome Letter From the P.T.O.

September 2007

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Teachers,

We hope you had an enjoyable summer and are pleased to begin the new school year.  We wish to extend a warm welcome from the P.T.O. to our new families and faculty members and a warm “welcome back!” to all our returning families, faculty, and staff!  We look forward to meeting and working with all of you at the many events we have planned for the coming year.

Sacred Heart School’s Open House will be held on Tuesday, September 18th.  PTO officers will be on hand in the auditorium to greet parents and answer questions.  Please take a moment to stop by and say, “Hi!” and enjoy refreshments.  Sign-up sheets for this year’s PTO events will be available at Open House.

Sacred Heart School PTO is an all-volunteer organization committed to providing exciting, innovative, stimulating, and, most of all, FUN, activities for your children.  We cannot stress enough the importance of volunteering for PTO events every event starts and ends with parents!  We start with a great idea, and, in order for the idea to be a reality, we need an organizer, and, in order for the idea to become a successful event, we need a team of volunteers!  The tremendous success of Queen for a Night is proof an idea was presented, a parent took the reins and put together a horde of hard-working people who have made this event extremely profitable for the past two years.  Through QFAN’s success, we (parents!) have been able to contribute nearly one-half ($17,500.00!!) of the total amount needed to fund the new science lab.  Volunteering some of your time at an event is also a wonderful opportunity to meet other parents.  Even if you cannot be physically present at an event, there are always loads of “behind the scenes” tasks that need to be done to ensure an event’s success.

We want to hear from you!!  Please feel free to email me at or contact any of the other officers with questions, thoughts, ideas, etc.  The PTO has mapped out a preliminary schedule and we feel that we have put together some really exciting and innovative programs for the coming year.  As always, we value your input and welcome your ideas.  Sometimes we may encounter logistical or other constraints that may prevent even the best idea from being realized, but we will try our best to consider all and try to make it work!

Finally, please take a moment to review the attached tentative PTO schedule and general descriptions of PTO activities for the 2007 2008 school year.  If you would like to volunteer for any of these events, kindly sign up at Open House or return the form at the bottom section of the schedule to us.  We look forward to seeing you on September 18th and, as always, thank you for your support!!
