Wow! What an amazing school year we have had because of families like you! As I reflect back on this past year, it is impossible for me to name just one specific accomplishment! PVPV/Rawlings is a better place because of the countless hours dedicated by the volunteers and the monetary donations made by our community partners and generous supporters like you. I am so grateful for each and every one of you that have contributed to our success this year.
This year alone, we raised over $225,000 and every dollar went straight back into the school. For a few examples, your PTO donated $36,000 to new technology, $58,000 to extra curriculum and licensing, $23,000 to campus security, $22,000 to media centers, art, and music, $35,000 to teacher and staff support, and $37,000 to playground enhancements. Our school would not be near the school of excellence without these dollars!
I am honored to serve as your new PTO President and am thrilled at the possibilities we can do together with everyone's support! We are enthusiastically looking ahead and already planning for 2018-2019! Please look out for opportunities to renew your support for PVPV/Rawlings starting July 22. Because TogetherEveryone Achieves More, I hope this year everyone will support TEAM Turtle so the tradition of excellence at PVPV/Rawlings continues. Alone we can do so little, but together we can do so much!
Should anyone have any questions, comments, or helpful suggestions, I gladly welcome you to email me at email@example.com. I hope everyone has a safe and "turtle-y awesome" summer! I look forward to seeing everyone at Meet the Teacher on Thursday, August 9.
