FINAL PTA GENERAL MEETING OF THE SCHOOL YEAR
Join us for the last PTA meeting of the school year on Tuesday, June 4 at 7:00 pm in the WVES library.  This is a great way to know what is going on at WV and how you can help.  

READING INCENTIVE
If you participate in the PTA Reading Incentive program, please be sure to turn in your completed May calendars on Monday so you can get your surprise before the end of the school year!  Calendars can be printed at https://www.westvincentpta.org/reading-incentive.  Special thanks to Amy Shumaker for chairing the program this year!  And keep reading this summer.  

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN HELPING?
It takes a lot of volunteers and leaders to make the many events and after-school programs the PTA puts on happen.  If you are interested in being a chairperson of an event, please contact Cindy Hutcheson, cindyhutcheson2007@gmail.com. We would be happy to share information about the many ways you can help in the next school year!

If you would like your name removed from this email list , please reply back to this email and let me know, I will have your email address removed from our list.

I would like to take this time to let you know that this will be my last email for the West Vincent PTA.  Jimmy will be moving on to middle school, so my time at West Vincent is over. Having sent these emails and updating the website for the past 7 years, I'm sure it will feel like I'm forgetting something on Sunday nights for a little while! You'll be in good hands - Elly Hensman will take over the Communications piece for the PTA.  Thank you for being so kind over the years!!!

Finally...
Monday is Day 1.
Have a great final week of school!!
