We pass along the “thank you”s received from the Renner staff to the many parent volunteers who participated in Teacher Appreciation Week. Here is an excerpt from just one of the thank you notes we received.
“Please accept my most sincere thanks for all of your hard work this week. The creativity, time and attention to detail you devoted just blew everyone away. Thank you so much for the wonderful bagels, milkshakes, casseroles, “brain food” snack, surprises in our boxes, and of course, the most unbelievable luncheon!!!!
As a PTA we coordinate this event, but it would not be possible without the support of many, many parent volunteeers. Thank you all.
Plano ISD has released the 2013-14 School Calendar. Renner has also set the Back-to-School Registration/Packet Pickup Days as Thursday, August 15 and Friday, August 16. At the March 4th General PTA Membership Meeting, those two days were designated as tax-free days, which will save parents the sales tax on back-to-school supplies purchased through the PTA.
We are pleased to introduce the volunteers who will be serving on the Renner PTA Board and in the Renner community for the 2013-14 school year. Many of these volunteers will begin preparations for Registration/Packet-Pickup for the coming school year immediately.
Detailed information about many school and PTA events and programs is available at Newsletters in the PTA’s Renner Roundup Newsletters.
WatchDOGS is an fun opportunity for dads to volunteer one whole day at school. If you haven’t signed up yet or want to make sure you get another day in this semester, check the calendar and email firstname.lastname@example.org to let her know your date preferences. It’s a truly rewarding experience you won’t forget, and neither will the kids! Click here to learn more about the program and to register to volunteer.
Dads new to the program must clear a background check before volunteering. If you haven’t done that, go to the Volunteer Application link at pisd.edu.
Texas PTA Life Membership is one of the highest honors that can be presented to an individual for outstanding service to children and youth. Renner PTA has bestowed this honor on four individuals this year. Please congratulate them when you have a chance.
