President's Message

Welcome to the 2019-20 School Year

Hello Panda Families,

On behalf of the Stocklmeir PTA (Parent Teacher Association) Executive Board, welcome to the 2019-20 school year! If you are new to Stocklmeir, the PTA is a group of active parents, faculty, and staff that help make Stocklmeir more than just a Distinguished School - we make it a thriving community for our kids to learn and grow.

The Stocklmeir PTA is affiliated with the National PTA, a nationwide network dedicated to improving children's education, health and safety, by engaging and empowering communities to advocate for all children.

PTA’s goal is to continue to support and strengthen Stocklmeir Elementary to ensure that students have the opportunity to reach their full potential. We do this by funding critical programs such as the CSMA Art and Music classes, Classroom Aides (for grades 4 & 5), Library books and Technology, S.T.E.M. Fair, and resources for all teachers. In addition, we bring the community together through events such as the Panda Picnic, Movie Night, and more.

The PTA works hard to ensure the students have a safe campus and the tools they need to succeed. Here are ways you can get actively engaged in our school community to help us achieve our mission:

  • Become a PTA member! For just $10! No experience necessary and no requirements are asked of you - but you do get voting rights, which shape the direction of your dollars!
  • Join the conversation! Attend General PTA Meetings where we look ahead at defining new goals and implementing existing ones! Our next meeting is Thursday, September 5th at 7pm in the GLC.
  • Get involved and Volunteer! Whether you can share your professional expertise or a hidden talent; whether you can help every day, an hour a week, or for a specific event, you are needed and appreciated.
  • Make a Financial Contribution! Every dollar counts. We ask that families donate $300 per child or $500 for a family. However, any amount is appreciated.

As you look through your welcome packet, I hope you will be inspired to join our organization in whatever capacity you are able. Each one of our dedicated board members are available to answer any questions about the efforts of the Stocklmeir PTA. Please feel free to contact any PTA board member or catch one of us at drop-off or pick-up if you have any questions. For more information, be sure to check out our website at www.stocklmeirpta.org .

Again, welcome back and looking forward to an exciting year.

With Panda Pride,

Samyuktha Narayan, PTA President
