HELLO and HAPPY SUMMER!!!
Here at the PTA we are hard at work making plans for the coming year, creating teams and updating the calendar and meeting with Watchung's OFFICIAL Principal, Mr. Krenn (yes!).
The full 2019-2010 calendar will soon be posted on the site but here's a rundown of some of the earliest events you should know about:
First up will be our new plan for Kindergarten playdates. We are scheduling one EVERY WEDNESDAY starting July 31st and continuing through the whole month of August to the 28th. They will be informal gatherings in the Watchung playground from 4-6pm so that new families will have plenty of time to get their children comfortable with the school grounds and to meet their new classmates.
That leads us right up to the New Parents Ice Cream Social on 9/4 from 4-6pm where students get to meet their kindergarten teachers as well as Principal Krenn, and parents have the opportunity to meet the PTA Board and sign up to help. We need new families to participate and we can't wait to tell you our plans for the coming year.
The FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL is Thursday, September 5th and we will be hosting a PTA First Day Breakfast in the school gym from 9-11am. This is another wonderful opportunity to meet your fellow Watchung families as well as meet PTA representatives and sign up to join us.
The way we will work PTA communication is threefold: every Monday we will send out an email to all who are opted-in to the district mailing list. The content of the weekly email in its entirety will also be cut and pasted here on the website homepage. In addition, we will post at least weekly on our PTA Facebook page (and usually share to our Watchung Parent page) so that hopefully no one will be left out of the communication loop. If you think there are better ways for us to communicate with the Watchung community, please let us know! We would love to hear from you about this or anything at firstname.lastname@example.org.
