Your PTO Board

September, 2020                                                                             

Good day, parents, teachers, student and sponsors;

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!  It will be a bright year with new challenges, but I expect us all to adapt and persevere.  Remember – Eagles do not give up, they SOAR!  Please visit our website often to keep up to date.

We are excited to introduce our 2020-2021 PTO Board.   Our President is Lynne Sykes.  She serves as a paraprofessional at South Woods Elementary.  Carrie Moody, our Vice President, is a grandparent to a South Woods student.  Our Treasurer Brittany Anderson serves as both a parent and paraprofessional. Lori Kosier is our Co-Treasurer and serves as a paraprofessional. Nicole Bohanan, our secretary, is a parent and teacher at one of our local middle schools.

We are still looking for parents, staff and community members to serve on our board.  Please contact us if you are interested.

We are here to help.  Contact us if you have questions or suggestions to help our PTO or school grow.  We want to help build the relationship between our school and community.

Our schools’ motto is “Where Every Child Counts!”  However, we have adopted a few extra words this year – “Flexibility, Change, Patience and Grace.”

Please note the changes in our Calendar of Events which reflects the impact of COVID-19.  We look forward to bringing our families and school together, and in person, when the time is right.

Warmest regards,

PTO Board
