Thank you to everyone who joined the Virginia A. Myers PTA in support of your child’s school!  Your dues help support the PTA budget for the year, and your enrollment made us eligible for membership awards from the Texas PTA.  We have qualified for the Early Bird Award by having 75% of last year’s spring membership total by September 30th, 2009.  We have also qualified for the MARS (Men Are Really Super) Award by having at least 50 male members in our PTA.  Once again, we have qualified for the Golden Apple Award by having 100% of faculty and staff enroll in PTA.   Congratulations to all who made these awards possible.

Our students also receive prizes when you join PTA.  Each child gets a special PTA Membership dog tag for every person who joins on their behalf.

We also had a friendly competition among the classes in each grade level.  The class that had the highest percentage of people join PTA in their grade received a Smencil— a realistically and deliciously scented pencil—for each student, graciously donated by our PTA Vice President of Volunteers Laurie Freeze.  Congratulations to the winning classes:

  • PPCD / ALE:   Hausler – 100%
  • Pre-K:  Garza –33%
  • Kinder:  Ramirez – 67%
  • 1st:  Lara – 86%
  • 2nd:  Benitez – 90%
  • 3rd:  Boehle – 60%
  • 4th:  Kincaid – 62%
  • 5th:  Maroney – 58%

Our main goal was to have 80% membership in each class.  For example, a class with 25 students had a goal of getting at least 20 people to join PTA.  Those classes who accomplished this goal will get to experience a presentation by an exhibition team of Taekwondo Black Belts!

Congratulations to those classes:

  • Arredondo – ALE
  • Benitez – 2nd grade
  • Carrizales – 2nd grade
  • Hausler – PPCD / Pre-K
  • Lara – 1st grade
