Happy February Vaughn Families!!!
We over half way done with this school year - can you believe it?! We have A LOT of exciting things happening with the PTA in February. Please be sure to read through our newsletter so you don't miss out on anything!
First, I wanted to let everyone know that Vaughn PTA applied for and received a $1,000 grant from National PTA and Facebook to host on a Digital Families Community Event. This will be an exciting night for families to come together with other community members to learn how to keep us all safe on the internet and on our personal electronic devices. Look for information on this event coming up this spring.
We will be hosting our first ever Whole Child Wellness Week from February 25 to March 1. One of our initiatives for our National PTA School of Excellence application process is to focus on the mental and emotional health of our children. Our wellness week will incorporate mindfulness, technology safety, exercise, and family focused events to promote awareness of mental and emotional health. One event we will host on February 26th is an internet safety presentation by Daphe Levenson beginning at 8 am after elementary school drop off. Please try to attend this event, it will be very informative! You may come in late or leave early. Light breakfast and refreshments will be served.
Our Whole Child Wellness Week will end with one of our favorite events of the year - the Sock Hop!!! We hope to see you all there, it will be another fun night!!
Happy December Vaughn Parents!!
It has been such a fun fall for the kids, school, and the PTA. Our Warrior Dash was the most successful fall fundraising event for us ever! We have great things in store for you in the future with the money you helped us raise, including programs and upgrades of technology and other equipment.
Winter spirit wear orders will be delivered in the first two weeks of December. Winter classroom parties will be on December 21st at 2:00 pm.
We wish you a happy holiday season and please have a safe winter break. We will see you back in 2019!!
Happy November Vaughn Parents!!
I have always loved November....cooler weather, Thanksgiving family gatherings, a week long break from school, and Election Day! This year our voting ballots will include important TRE and Bond Propositions from Frisco ISD. As a PTA, we have voted to support these propositions. If these pass, Vaughn Elementary will be directly impacted through campus improvements, including technology enhancements and playground resurfacing upgrades. Election Day is November 6th.
November 8th is our next PTA meeting with a special 3rd grade Veteran Day performance and Multicultural Night. It will be a fun family event, and we hope to see you there.
Vaughn Elementary PTA is in the process of applying to be a National PTA School of Excellence. If chosen, we will receive national recognition! Thank you to everyone who completed the survey as part of our application. Our PTA and Vaughn Elementary are pretty amazing, and I'm sure national PTA will recognize that as well!
Have a great November and a safe Thanksgiving break.
Hello Vaughn Families!
October means it's time for our biggest annual fundraiser! The Vaughn Warrior Dash Obstacle Course!!! We are so excited about the changes that have been made this year to make this an even more exciting event for our children. The kick off event is on October 12th at 2:15 pm. Parents, please attend if you are available, it will be fun!
Funds raised through the Warrior Dash are very important to our school. This year we will be raising money to possibly go towards increasing the size of classroom libraries, expanding the turf on the field, technology upgrades, classroom resources, and valuable family programs.
If you have any questions or feedback for the PTA, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org
Happy September! I hope you all have made a smooth transition back to school. We have an exciting month planned for PTA events. We will have our first stock the pantry of the year, our first spirit night, and our fall book fair with Donuts with Dads! Get there early for donuts, this is a very popular event! 4th and 5th grade parents, be on the look out this month for information about Green Team which will start up again soon. Our Reflections program will begin soon as well. Encourage your children to start thinking about a project to enter in to this amazing program.
Visit our website often for volunteer opportunities and PTA updates. It's going to be a great month!
Welcome back to school Vaughn families! Our PTA board has been hard at work this summer. We have a newly reformatted website, www.vaughnpta.org
. Registration is easy, and the site will have all the information you want and need about PTA happenings. You can join PTA, pay your classroom dues, purchase spirit wear, sign up for volunteer opportunities, and subscribe to the calendar so events will be directly added to your personal calendar! For PTA members, viewing the student directory will be easier than ever with the Membership Toolkit app, giving you instant access on your phone.
We already have a great lineup of programs for your students, including Dr. Recess, High Touch/High Tech, and Dinosaur George. But one of the most exciting things we have this fall is our new OBSTACLE COURSE Fun Run. The kids will be sure to love it!
I am so excited for a great school year!
President, Vaughn Elementary PTA
