Letter from Our PTA President
Dear Dooley Elementary family,
Hello and welcome back, or if you're new, welcome to, Dooley Elementary! My name is Erin Griffin and I am so excited to be the PTA President this year. I'm looking forward to a great 2016-17 school year!
If you have not done so already, please visit our PTA website. There is a lot of information on our site such as a calendar of events, contact information, membership database, PTA store, volunteer opportunities, faculty favorites lists, upcoming events, and more!
Also, a very important reminder if you plan to volunteer this year (and we really hope you do! WE LOVE OUR VOLUNTEERS!!), you will need to update your PISD background check. The link is on the home page of our PTA website. Make sure you check the appropriate boxes for each school you plan to be a volunteer at this year.
While you are on the PTA website, please take a few moments to sign into your family's account and update your information. If you are new and you have a membership toolkit account from another school, use the same email and password to log into ours. Once you have finished that step, click on Forms and then you will then be able to join PTA, purchase spirit wear, and check the volunteer boxes on areas of interest.
Upcoming events: Grandparents and Special Friends Day Lunch on Friday, September 16th. Please mark your calendars to attend this fun day at school, where grandparents and special friends are invited to meet their Dragon for lunch and see what the Dooley spirit is all about. Our next big event is our Fall Picnic on Friday, October 7th. Join us at Bob Woodruff Park in the evening for a food truck, bounces houses, face painting, games, and more!
If you would like further information on our PTA and ways you can be involved, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are always looking for more family and community members who share our commitment to improving the education, health and safety of all children.
The Plano ISD theme this year is STRONG STUDENTS, STRONG SCHOOLS. A strong PTA is key to making this happen! We need you! Looking forward to a great year!!
