Dear Sunnyside Family,

Happy start of the 2018-2019 school year, and welcome to all incoming and returning families! I am so excited to start the year and to be working with the rest of the PTSA to help make Sunnyside the best school for all our kids. 

Each year, the PTSA not only organizes some amazing parties and events such as the Harvest Fair, Stone Soup and Pi(e) Night, but we also organize fundraisers that support our teachers, staff, and the enriching programs at Sunnyside. You have received a letter detailing the Back to School Ask, so please check it out! We also organize large fundraising events such as the Run-Walk and Read-a-Thon along with smaller fundraising activities. These funds ensure that all children at Sunnyside can actively participate in all events!

You may not be aware that a small, dedicated group of parents make all this happen. I run a local nonprofit and fundraise for a living. I know how much time, talent and dedication it takes to fundraise in the best of situations, and this parent-led group does an amazing job for the school, the kids, the teachers, and the staff. Plus, we all have fun in the process!

If you are looking for more ways to get involved or to just feel more connected to the school and our community, please join the PTSA today. You don’t have to know how to fundraise, just to be willing to help! You will find information in the Back to School Ask letter on how to join. But really, just simply show up for a meeting at any time, or feel free to contact me with questions. 

We need you! We need your time, talent and treasure. We need your organizational skills, your humor, and your creativity. I look forward to getting to know you and seeing you at the next meeting. You can find the PTSA full schedule here:
