Can you believe it’s already almost October? (And that the crisp fall weather is finally arriving?) The first full month of the school year has been a smashing success for the school, staff, students, and the Parent, Teacher, Student Association. Here are some highlights of what the PTSA has accomplished and some requests for your participation.
We had our first General Meeting on Thursday, Sept 20th from 6:30 to 8:00 pm and we had a good number of attendees (including a handful of well-behaved children – kudos to them for lasting through it!). There will be two more General Meetings this year; we will post them as soon as we have them set.
Here are a few key points we wanted to convey after the meeting:
There are a number of programs that give our PTSA money if you use them, including the King Soopers reloadable gift cards (we will have them at the Family Academy next week – and any PTSA-supported event, too, if you plan to be at them. Or you can email email@example.com to get yours!!). In addition to receiving 5% cash back on purchases made from the King Soopers reloadable gift cards, we also can make some money from:

We are excited to grow our numbers and increase involvement!! We are excited to support the school and the students in making Meadowlark an AWESOME place to go to school!!!
There are many volunteer opportunities available – from classroom help to Curiosity Center help to Family Academies….the list goes on and on! Please register in Help at School and either opt in or not to the Directory (which can be helpful – if you opt in – if you’re trying to communicate with other families in your Learning Community) and view all the fun volunteer opportunities that are out there!

Here is the Meadowlark General Meeting #1. Minutes will be posted once approved. Highlight: We have an approved budget and we presented a $20K check to the school!!! Great work last year, everyone!!!
In addition, we are also looking for a few volunteers to help out with the Walk and Roll to school event. Please contact Shannon Kaple if you are interested in helping! ShannonaKaple@gmail.com
Have a great week, Mavs!
Get your Maverick Spirit Wear here!
The first purchasing window of this year closes September 21st, so if you want to be part of the action this go-round, go to the store, look around, and buy something cool for yourself and your student(s)!! Orders will be available to pick up from the school the week of October 7th.
The store will be open four times per year, with slightly different merchandise each time.
Come to Meadowlark PTSA’s first General Meeting of the year this Thursday from 6:30 to 8 pm in the Heart and you will be entered in a raffle to win some Mavs Spirit Wear!
At the meeting, we will share the great things we’ve done so far this year; the awesome plan we have for the rest of the year, and how YOU can be a part of it all! Here’s the agenda.
We have some really fun volunteer opportunities that you might be interested in helping out with! We will also have reloadable King Soopers gift cards available for those who are interested in using them to help Meadowlark raise money.
Everyone is welcome – members and non-members – come learn about what we do and who we are and if you’re not a member yet…we’re hoping you’ll become a member at the meeting!
