In the wake of new budget realities, the SES PTSA needs to modify the budget it adopted last spring. Please come hear about the changes. We will also try to have someone there to speak with us about what to expect from state and district funding issues as we move forward.
With this fact in mind, we have planned an additional SES PTSA General Meeting.
- When: Tuesday, November 30th, 2010 from 6:30-7:30
- Where: SES Auditorium
- And: childcare for school-age kids provided with advance rsvp toÂ firstname.lastname@example.org
There will be a vote to adopt budget changes so please make sure you have joined the SES PTSA this year prior to the meeting. You can do so easily by clicking on the Live Green Give Green page and then only signing up for PTSA Membership. The link is:Â www.sesptsa.org/?page_id=46

Our Second Annual Read-A-Thon kicks off Wednesday, November 17th. Last year was a lot of fun and we want to encourage participation throughout all grade levels and have an even more successful fundraiser this year. We invite all families to participate in this wonderful event that will promote literacy and a love of reading in addition to raising funds for SES. By holding a pledge-based event, our hope is that families will reach out to friends, neighbors, grandparents, co-workersâ€¦anyone who believes in SESâ€™s mission and loves literacy!

This year’s experiment not to hold an auction worked well. Our school community is wonderful! You supported the Read-a-thon, the Run/Walk for SES the “Think Green Give Green” request, and lots of smaller PTSA fundraisers, as well as fundraisers sponsored by the school and by individual teachers. PTSA has met our budget goals and can continue to provide the programs and field study scholarships that our school wants. To view the approved 2010-2011 budget please click on the following links:
