President’s Message

This has been a thrilling year so far with a whirlwind of a September as Students, Teachers, and Parents adjust to another new year of school. October kicked off the PTO ‘season’ with a great first meeting and movie night both well attended. What warms my heart are the teachers, parents and young adults who volunteered their time and energy to supervise 80 children in a dark auditorium!! My sincere thanks go out to them. I also would like to thank Mr. Mooney, Mr. Higgins, Mr. Schwarz, Mr. Gall and Mrs. Connors for attending. And of course a huge thank you to Mrs. Speck for providing a fantastic discussion on why our children are learning math differently these days. In addition to our meeting we also had our Yankee Candle fundraiser and our Trunk-or-Treat event where we raised over $6100 and $620 net respectively.

Thank you to all our volunteers to help make these events fun and effective for our children’s programs. I would also like to thank Lorenzo’s Pizza for donating three gift certificates as prizes for the Trunk-or-Treat. We have our upcoming meeting on November 7 where we will be raffling off a Family Four Pack of movie tickets at the Flagship Cinemas (formerly Majestic) in Matamoras.

One last word… part of this organization’s goal is to raise funds for programs for our children, and bring together community. We have a great number of local businesses in this community and I am pleased to have these businesses assist our programs through sponsorships. If you are part of a local business or know someone that does and would like to be part of our monthly sponsorship program, please have them contact us. I would like to welcome our first monthly Gold sponsor, Tim’s Auto & Truck Care Center.

Thank you,

Josh Wagner
