As a way of introduction, my name is Leesan Villa. I have had the pleasure of serving the JBS PTA as Vice-President for the past 2 years and I’ve enjoyed being part of the JBS community for well over a decade. For the 2019-2020 school year I will be serving as JBS PTA President and I’m looking forward to working with the great parents, faculty and staff for one more year before heading off to WIS. Over the years, many of the other volunteers and staff have truly become my friends. I believe if you take the opportunity to get involved you will find the same kind of camaraderie that I have found at JBS over the years.
Did you know that our PTA receives 100% of our support from Parents, Faculty and Staff at JBS? The PTA counts on volunteers and members to be sustainable and it’s never to soon to start thinking about all we must do for the 2019-2020 school year. There are many opportunities for you to get involved and make contributions, whether by volunteering at a specific event or activity, serving as a JBS PTA board member, fundraising or just by writing a check donating $20 or more towards the costs of our programs.
Being an active PTA member has many advantages:
• It is a great way to become familiar with the teachers and the school
• It allows you to have some influence over how money from fundraising is spent to benefit the school and its students
• It allows you to stay tuned in to what your child(ren) is doing at school every day
• It provides you with an opportunity to network with other parents.
Each year the JBS PTA provides support for students and staff in many ways. Here’s just a few of the many events and activities that your child(ren) will be enjoying during the 2019-2020 school year:
• Meet the Teacher
• Fall Festival
• Holiday Tree Lighting Float and Parade
• Someone Special Dance
• Science Fair
• JBS Birthday Party
• Field Day
Without your support it’s difficult to reach our goals and provide the services needed to help make JBS fun. We want to assist the JBS faculty and staff with the resources they need to foster a nurturing and caring environment but that takes some parental involvement as well as financial support. Last year we spent approximately $9,000 to sponsor these and other activities, we need your support to continue financing these and other things for the school.
Whether you have 30 minutes or a couple of hours, your ideas, your time, and your talents are truly needed. We can match your time constraints and interests to needed tasks. We have many ways in which Moms, Dads, Aunts, Uncles, and Grandparents can contribute. Please consider volunteering, fundraising or simply making a tax- deductible donation of at least $20 or more to the JBS PTA. It does make a difference in the lives of our children!
Please feel free to call me at 203-415-9983 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions, need any additional information or just to chat.
Looking forward to a great year!
