Tomorrow is the last day of school, time has flown by and this year has be a great success. We accomplished tons and hope to do even more next year.
Below is a list of a few of the things that the PTA has done this year.
  • Halloween Playground Parade- distributed free ‘glow sticks’ to each child
  • Free Family movie nights (Spring and Fall), including free popcorn and lemonade for kids
  • Star party (gave away glow necklaces, lemonade and popcorn)
  • Free Family ‘bedtime stories’ night (lemonade and popcorn)
  • Student Awards celebration- distributed free ice cream to each child
  • Bi-monthly Family Dinner Nights at local restaurants (El Torito, Dimilles, Pick Up Stix, Pizza Gourmet Express)
  • Birney’s first annual “Passport to Adventure!” international festival
  • educational information, food, performance, and crafts for each of six countries
  • book exchange, and pet adoption to raise money for Ghana, raffle
  • Rummage Sale and Pancake Breakfast including free breakfast tickets for runner in the race for literacy and for special student performance
  • On going Ghana fund raising at some of the Family Fridays and send supplies to them
  • 9 Family Fridays
  • Fall Fundraiser selling Otis Spunkmeyer Cookies
  • Teacher Appreciation Breakfast
  • Concessions table for UHArts walk
  • Welcome donuts and coffee for the first day of school
I am sure there are other things, but the time and my mind seem to have gone.
I just want to take this opportunity to thank again all of the parents, teachers and friends who gave of the time and resources to make my year as PTA president a success. The kids are very lucky to have all of you. A Special Thanks goes to Samantha Boice, Susie, Villareal, Tom Richardson (my co officers) I could not have had a better group of people to work with. We did a lot and we had fun to. I have made many friendships this year that I truly cherish and I look forward to working with the PTA officers next year to make 2009-2010 an even better year.

Remember you the parents and teachers (and principal and staff) are the backbone of many programs that benefit our kids so please join again next year.

I had a great time as an officer on the Birney PTA. Many thanks to everyone who I had the opportunity to volunteer with. I look forward to volunteering again with you and the new and returning parents, teachers, students, and staff.
