We made it! On behalf of the PTO and myself, I wanted to thank all of the parents, faculty, administration, staff, and of course our wonderful kiddos for an amazing year. I have never been a “PTO mom,” but then again the FBMS PTO is not your ordinary PTO. The support of the parents and the school for our kids is nothing short of amazing. Knowing this, this “non-PTO mom” could not refuse the opportunity to serve as president this past year. And I was not disappointed--with your help, we raised more money than ever before, had more volunteers than ever before, gave more teacher grants than ever before, and are funding more next year for the school than ever before. I am truly grateful for your support.
I am also looking forward to the great things that will continue to happen--and be improved upon!--next year under the leadership of the new board. Some amazing people officially became your PTO leadership as of last week’s PTO meeting. It simply could not be a more exciting time to be at FBMS. And although my term as president is coming to an end, I will still be around in a supporting role, and still look forward to working with many of you. If you haven’t had a chance to get involved in the PTO yet, or think the PTO is not for you, I encourage you to give it a chance next year. There are big jobs and small jobs, jobs for working parents and jobs for stay at home parents, year-long jobs and one-time jobs, and just a lot of ways to support your kiddos’ school!
Have a wonderful, relaxing summer!!
FBMS PTO President (Emeritus!)
