Letter from Principal Reagan, May 19

Filed in Archive by on May 19, 2017

Dear Parents

I am writing this letter with great concern of the future of Eagle PTO.  Nine years ago, before the walls of Eagle were even finished, a group of very dedicated parents joined me at the BC ed center to create the first Eagle PTO.  We had no idea what to do or how to do this, but we figured it out.  And, in the end, a very few passionate moms created a very successful Eagle PTO.

Since then the PTO has had an incredible impact on all that we can offer at this school.  Many parents have been active either on the board, or as a chair or as a committee volunteer.  We have been blessed with the leadership of our Eagle PTO over the years.  As we head into our final meeting of the year we only have two board positions filled:

  • President (2 co-presidents is a preferable option)
  • VP Events
  • VP Fundraising
  • Secretary (2 co-secretaries is a preferable option)
  • Treasurers – FILLED! (Sonia Sharma and Colleen Shields)

At our last meeting of the year, June 13th, the 2017-18 board will be voted in, and as I see it now, that board does not exist.  If we cannot fill the board for next year, the two treasurers will continue the financial obligations for next year, but none of the fundraising will happen, and therefore, none of the events will occur.  The following a sample list of what will NOT occur next year if we cannot secure a board:

  • Spooktakular
  • Field trips (some will occur but many won’t)
  • Author’s visit
  • Field Day
  • Science Fair
  • Fall Family Picnic
  • Auction
  • Book Fairs
  • Yearbook

Eagle is a great school and I hope we can continue to work together to ensure the PTO remains.  It has been 9 years since Eagle was built and our original PTO was launched.  Please help us continue to make next nine years just as successful and just as exciting.

Also, join us at our next meeting on June 13th, 2017-18.

Sincerely,

Dianna Reagan
