Dear Eastwood Elementary Families:

Welcome Explorers! We hope you all enjoyed the fun-filled Summer days, and it is with great enthusiasm that we invite you to get ready for an exciting and successful 2017-2018 School Year. We are very proud to be celebrating Eastwood Elementary Inaugural Year!

With your support, we can make Eastwood Elementary a California Distinguished School for our children. We are a community school and encourage parent involvement. Your contribution, whether it is your time, knowledge, or resources make a difference. We invite you to become an involved member at Eastwood. We currently have a variety of PTA positions to fill.  Thank you for helping in any way you can, and showing your children the importance you place on their education. “A strong PTA represents parent involvement and parent involvement represents student success.

Eastwood Elementary PTA Membership Drive is under way! I strongly encourage everyone to start a new membership for only $15 per person. I would personally like to invite you to be part of that voice by becoming a member and attending PTA meetings. This gives you a vote (voice) on how your fundraising dollars are spent towards our amazing programs. I am always humbled and inspired by the many volunteers who can offer their time to make Eastwood Elementary PTA run smoothly.

Your first chance to see the school will be this Tuesday when we have our ICE CREAM SOCIAL. The social will take place from 5:00 PM-6:30 PM at Eastwood. We look forward to getting to know your family. This is a GREAT night! Everyone will have the opportunity to join the PTA, talk to our committee chairs, learn about the events the PTA has planned, and much more. Please check our Website Calendar for all the upcoming back to school events.

From 5:00 PM-5:45 PM the campus will be open for you and your children to explore. Even though teachers will not have their rooms 100% ready, you will see how we redesigned the learning environment to facilitate collaboration and innovation. (We are conducting the tour before serving the frozen treats).

From 5:45 PM to 6:30 PM we will meet near the lunch area and everyone will have an opportunity to enjoy a refreshing frozen snack while socializing with families and Eastwood staff. Our PTA will also be available to answer questions about how you can get involved and support our school.

On behalf of the PTA Executive Board and all the volunteers, we wish everyone a very productive year ahead and look forward to your continued support. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at president@eastwoodpta.com. Please know that questions and suggestions are always welcome!
