Dear Evansdale Eagles Parents,


At Evansdale you will find amazingly dedicated teachers and staff who work tirelessly to make things great for our children.  You will also find dedicated parents and volunteers who work to make Evansdale great.  It takes teachers, staff, parents and community members working together to achieve the PTA vision of every child achieving their potential.  We all have skills, talents and resources that can be used to make a difference in our school.  I hope that you will take some time to find a place this year where you can serve whether that is in the classroom, on a PTA committee or at a school event, no amount of time is too small.


I am excited about this school year and serving as the PTA president.  The Evandale PTA is just one of the entities that makes Evansdale a great place to be.  Our mission is to strengthen the home to school connection through family and community engagement.  We work towards accomplishing our mission by hosting fun community events, cultural arts events, showing our appreciation to teachers and staff, being up to date on legislation affecting education, and much more.  With your support we are able to continue working to reach our vision and mission, so I hope that you will become a member of the 2017-18 Evansdale PTA.


This is going to be another great school year and to top it off we will be celebrating 50 years!  All year we will be centering events and activities around our theme “Be a friend.  Be a leader.”  I love this theme, it’s simplicity and what it stands for.  We hope that the children will learn that being a leader doesn’t mean being at the top, it can be as simple as being a friend or standing up for someone.  It can be a simple action as sitting by a new person at lunch, asking someone new to play on the playground, or helping a neighbor.  Such a simple theme with a big message!


I look forward to serving your children this year, and I thank you for the opportunity!  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.


Soar like an Eagle!
