Also, we are looking for a few more community members who would like to join the yearbook committee. Tasks include responding to emails, downloading photos, and taking pictures at one or more school events throughout the school year.

Also again, we know that some of you ordered the 2nd run of last year’s yearbook (2021-2022). We are currently waiting for those yearbooks to arrive on campus and will be posting when they will be made available.

Some tasks include: refilling and straightening empty shelves and assisting students with choosing books. If you don’t have time, consider donating supplies! We will most likely need plastic bags. Make sure to recycle/reuse them when your child(ren) brings home their sack of books!

PTA Association Meeting Tuesday, May 24th at 6:15pm

If you’d like to join our last Association meeting of the school year, please email us at reidycreekpta@gmail.com for the Zoom meeting ID number. Reminder: you don’t have to be a PTA member to attend, but you DO need to be a member to vote on current roundtable issues.

Looking for PTA Board and Committee Members!

As it stands, we are still looking for a few Board positions to be filled. If the Board does not fill vital positions, the sad reality is that Reidy Creek may not have a PTA next year, which means: no Trunk-or-Treat, no Father-Daughter Dance, no extra funds for teachers to purchase supplies. If you are interested in making our children’s elementary years more memorable, please consider joining a committee or becoming a board member. If you have questions for the PTA Board, we will have our last Coffee With the PTA on June 2nd. More details to come!

The PTA Executive Board is the first line of parent volunteers who see what money comes in and makes discussions and suggestions for how it should be spent. They track money for teacher mini-grants, new P.E. equipment, and library funding. They procure materials for the student store and put together the school’s yearbook. Please consider joining!

Thank you for reading and for all your support!

A big THANK YOU to all the teachers, staff, and parents who contributed and sent in their pictures.

Your New Executive Board!

At our past PTA association meeting, the Association elected these new and returning officers for the following positions. Please congratulate them!

  • Secretary – Veronica Nagao
  • Vice President of Membership – Jenn Ramirez
  • Auditor – Andrea Orellana

Don’t fret! If you’d like to still make a difference and see where and how money is spent, we are still looking to fill these positions:

  • Historian – keeps track of PTA member and volunteer hours, manages social media
  • Treasurer – signs checks, completes a simple Quickbooks report for each meeting
  • President – leads all PTA meetings, oversees and manages the Board and all PTA-related event Chairs, is the “frontman/woman/person” of the PTA
  • Parliamentarian – Appointed by the President, studies by-laws and motions

The two vital positions that must be filled are President and Treasurer as the Reidy Creek PTA cannot function unless those two positions are filled. No experience is necessary, and training and resources are available. Please consider joining!

Also, thank you for joining us at our past Restaurant Night at Rubio’s!

To see how much we made, please join us at the last PTA Association meeting scheduled for May 24th at 6:15pm via Zoom. More details to come!
