Dear New Lebanon Families and Teachers,
As your Parent Teacher Association Co‐Presidents this year, we welcome you all – new families, returning families, and teachers. We look forward to helping you navigate this unusual year. We are excited to work with our Principal, Alexandra Michaelson (formerly Ms. Bartholomew), and look forward to supporting her, the staff, the teachers, and YOU in making this school year the best it can be. Working TOGETHER FOR SAFETY & LEARNING is how we will do that.
Last school year, the New Lebanon PTA funded worthwhile programs, events, activities, transportation, and more; however, because of the unexpected switch to remote learning, we were unable to hold essential fundraisers that we rely on for PTA funds. That makes this year even more important for finding creative ways to fundraise and enrich our students’ experience. Your generous support of the New Lebanon School PTA through your membership dues and support of fundraising activities is essential for the PTA to provide these opportunities that enhance our children’s school experience.
We invite you to join the PTA for your child because increasing our membership, by even one, makes it possible to provide important educational resources, advocate for our children, speak up on important issues and create a stronger school community. There is no wrong or right way to be involved — anything you can give, whether it is time or money, will support your child’s experience and success.
The PTA offers all parents and caregivers the opportunity to be engaged in their child’s potential. It supports your child’s teachers and curriculum, strengthens your child’s education and the family‐school partnership and allows us to build a stronger, more diverse and inclusive school community. There is no wrong way to PTA and we invite every family to participate because we can do more together than apart.
We encourage everyone to attend our VIRTUAL PTA meetings. Please see our PTA events page for meeting times and details.
Go Bobcats! Melissa and Dawn
