Boosterthon Overview

posted Sep 9, 2019, 5:14 PM by Webmaster PTA   [ updated Sep 9, 2019, 5:17 PM ]

Parents and Families—this year’s main fundraiser is the Boosterthon and Fun Run!  It’s a two-week program that kicks off with a Pep Rally on September 23rd 2019. Families will then gather pledges for every lap your student runs/walks (30-35 laps) at the Fun Run, which will happen on October 3rd 2019. This year our goal is to raise $35,000 and we need your help! We’ve asked the experts at Booster to power our fundraiser to make it easier, more profitable, and more fun.

 Students will also experience an amazing character theme, MINDSPARK: WILD WEST! Booster’s most exciting theme yet combines S.T.E.A.M. skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) with character-building. While they're teaming up with the MindSpark Kids to save Dr. Shock, our students will learn five character traits that will help strengthen themselves and our world.

 Donations will go toward PTA funded programs and services and the entire two-week experience. So please help our school by getting pledges from family and friends and entering them on FUNRUN.COM.  Thanks so much for your support!

PLE PTA updated Bylaws - for Review

posted Apr 14, 2019, 5:56 AM by Webmaster PTA   [ updated Apr 14, 2019, 5:56 AM ]

As we get ready to head into Spring Break, we just wanted to give you a reminder about our upcoming general meeting on May 16, 2019 at 6:30pm. 

Members will be electing officers for next year. Also, this year, we will be voting to approve our updated bylaws. Every five years we are required to review and update the bylaws. This cycle we are proposing that the assistant treasurer position be replaced by a controls officer to oversee in-house audits and questions about bylaws interpretations. We have done this to foster consistency in decision making across board transitions. 

For more information, please feel free to review the bylaws and the explanation of the changes here and on our website prior to the May meeting.
