Welcome Letter - July 2016

 Dear Wiregrass Elementary Families,

 Welcome to our Wiregrass PTA web page.

 As the newly elected Wiregrass PTA President, I would like to welcome all of the families to the Wiregrass Elementary School, community. I look forward to meeting and getting to know those of you that I haven't met yet. I am also enthusiastic about working with an amazing group of parents this year on the PTA board. I hope you all are enjoying the fun filled summer days. It is with great enthusiasm that I invite you to get ready for an exciting and successful school year. The start of the school year is the start of many new beginnings and many new memories to be made. As the inaugural families of Wiregrass Elementary School, there is great pride and excitement around being part of something with such great potential.

 Please extend a warm welcome to our Principal, Steven C. Williams and our Assistant Principal, Melissa Bidgood. We've already begun a great working relationship and we are grateful for their support of the PTA. To our wonderful teachers, staff, and administration we look forward to a great year and we will work hard to support you. We appreciate all that you do!

 Some of you may have noticed how beautiful the school looks as the WRES staff has been working tirelessly over the summer to present a school that the students will be proud to attend. "Back to school" is an exciting time for our students, the staff and parents alike. As we enter a fantastic year at WRES, we have outstanding, fun-filled educational fairs and programs, great community-building events. Exciting 5th grade activities, and fun family nights that we would like to share with you.

 As a student advocacy group, the WRES PTA continues to focus on improved communications with the Wiregrass families and community. We have started a new Wiregrass PTA Facebook page, please likeus and follow our page. We have also built a new website www.wiregrasspta.org that will have important links and information for students and parents. We have set up accounts with Remind, and SignUp Genius for our volunteers. Throughout the year we will continue to expand our means of communication to ensure everyone has an opportunity to be heard, informed and involved.  

 I have found that being involved in the PTA keeps me connected to my childs school and has been a rewarding experience for me. I am proud to be a WRES parent and I am looking forward to an exciting new school year. I am excited to serve as your PTA president for the 2016-2017 school year. Together we can achieve our school’s vision where students, staff and community members are safety pursued, learning focused, people valued and outcome driven.

 Many more volunteer opportunities lie ahead. “We love our volunteers!” Thank you to everyone who has played an integral role in establishing the Wiregrass PTA. We appreciate you for so willingly and generously giving your time, talent and resources. On behalf of the PTA Board and all the volunteers who give their time so freely and enthusiastically, we thank you for your support and invite you to attend our general assembly meetings. If at anytime during the school year, you have any questions please dont hesitate to contact me at the school PTA email address wiregrasspta@gmail.com.

“Welcome to the home of the Bulls!"

 Respectfully,

Jasmine Torres

Wiregrass Elementary PTA President
