Welcome Letter from our PTA President

Welcome Back WVE Families!

On behalf of the entire PTA board, I welcome your family to the 2019-2020 school year and invite you to take part in the many exciting events planned for the upcoming year.

The year is already off to a great start with the first PTA-sponsored event, Chalk the Walk. Special thanks to the parents who wrote inspirational messages and drew beautiful images. Our teachers and students did a double-take with every step! Everyone loved it, and I encourage you to take a look at the photos, as well as the first-day-of school photos, on the West Vincent PTA Facebook page!

Our second PTA-sponsored event of the year is Back to School Bash, which will be held on 

Friday, September 6th from 5:30 - 7:30 pm. This annual event is a great way to meet up with friends and many WV teachers and staff. There will be food trucks, a DJ, a photo booth, a dunk tank, and new spirit
wear. You can also take a peek at the new playground equipment purchased with some of the money raised at last year's PTA Wildcat Walk-a-Thon. I also encourage you to stop by the PTA information table to meet the members of our current board, learn more about membership, and get get involved in the upcom- ing events. The PTA board is very excited about the upcoming year, and we are happy to share our plans with you!

We are already working on the 3rd Annual Wildcat Walk-a-Thon, and we plan to make it bigger and better than ever. The PTA's plans for the year also include All Pro Dad Breakfasts, Bingo Nights, Art Nights, a Retro Movie Night, Book Fairs, the Daddy Daughter Dance, school assemblies, after-school programs and more.

Just like year’s past, the PTA listened to what you want and in addition to the dozens of well-loved activities we have had in the past, we have added a few new events including a Mother/Son Trivia Night, an After- School Fitness Club, and an all-new Drama Club (culminating in a stage show!) Details about many of these things will be coming soon or can be found on our website.

The PTA has so much to offer this year. We encourage you to read the PTA Sunday email, join the West Vin- cent PTA Facebook page, and visit our website (www.westvincentpta.org) to stay up to date on the many programs and events offered by the PTA. On our website you can become a member for the 2019-2020 school year, make an “unfundraiser” donation, read about all our programs, sign up to volunteer and more!

Lastly, our first PTA meeting of the year is Tuesday, September 17th at 7:00 pm in the school library. I strongly encourage you to come to the meeting, share your ideas, and hear about what we have planned. Attendance does not mean you are required to volunteer! If I can be of any help to you this year, send me an email at cindyhutcheson2007@gmail.com.

Looking forward to another great year at WV!

WV PTA President (Emma and Sylvia’s mom)
