North Davis Elementary PTA
Working together for all our children
Welcome to the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) at North Davis Elementary!
The role of the PTA at North Davis is to support our teachers, staff, and families by
- helping to fund important enrichment programs and experiences for students (art, music, fitness, field trips, assemblies, and more),
- providing supplemental funding support for class supplies, technology, and school climate programs, and
- helping to build and foster our school community by sponsoring events and other initiatives.
We collaborate with Principal Roseen, our NDE teachers, and parents in our community to identify priorities, needs, and opportunities, and we approach these objectives with a commitment to inclusion and equity, for all students and grade levels.
To achieve the PTA’s objectives, we hold a series of fundraisers during the school year, including several that have come to be landmark NDE traditions and that double as fun events for our students and our broader NDE community. In 2020, while social distancing measures in place due to COVID19, we will not be able to hold some of our keystone events in the traditional way. We are also mindful that teachers and students alike might be in need of different types of support than in pandemic-free years. The PTA remains deeply committed to continuing in our support of NDE teachers, students, and community, and we are adapting our plans for 2020-2021 to align with the needs of this unusual school year. Thinking outside the box, we are discussing with NDE staff where PTA funds would be particularly helpful in supporting teachers and students during distance learning; we are considering new and/or adapted enrichment programs; and we are brainstorming fun ways to enrich the kids’ education and bring the community together in spirit during this period when we cannot gather together physically. We welcome your ideas and participation!!
We sincerely appreciate your continued support of the NDE PTA, through PTA membership, contributions to fundraising initiatives, and volunteering to help as needs and opportunities arise. Everything may look a bit different this year, but PTA support of our school community is more important than ever. We are truly grateful for your input, participation, and contributions as we work together to make this a year of exceptional learning and growth for our NDE students.
The PTA is here for you – as NDE’s teachers, students, and families. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please reach out to me directly or email the PTA at NorthDavisElementaryPTA@gmail.com.
