Our Bay Point Elementary PTA Nominating Committee (Miles Baker, Amber Cain, and Lynn Gordan) has been busy this past month recruiting candidates to hold PTA Officer and Committee Chair positions for the 2016-2017 school year.
Why may you ask is this so important?
As you’ve seen, our PTA coordinates numerous events and activities at our school that are aimed at assisting in the learning process and enriching the lives of our students and families. For example, this year alone we organized 9 family events (e.g., Fall Festival, Publix Math Night, Fiesta Night, Color Run, Science Fair Night), coordinated 2 programs (Math Superstars, Reflections), held two fundraisers, and showed appreciation for our hardworking teachers/staff on several occasions by planning breakfasts and lunches. We also provided support for our school in the form of a fun Winter Holidays-Around-the-World Celebration, mental math curriculum tools, Panther Bucks rewards program, visit by a renowned author, student planners, 1st grade veggie garden, and much more!
In keeping with these traditions for next year, we wish to enlist the talents of as many Bay Point Elementary parents, teachers, and family members, representing a diverse array of ethnic, cultural, gender, and socioeconomic backgrounds, as possible. It is this diversity that is essential to bring fresh ideas and enthusiasm to our group and to ensure that our organization best serves the needs of our students and families.
To that end, our Nominating Committee is proud to report the following slate of officers for the 2016-2017 school year:
President – Jennifer Cannizzaro
Vice President – Miles Baker

We invite you to join us for our final PTA General Association Meeting on Tuesday, May 17th at 5:45pm in the cafeteria. At this time, we will present a brief overview of our activities this year and will conduct elections for next year’s PTA board. After this meeting, we encourage you to attend the Family Grade Level Articulation Night being offered by our school. Here, you can find out what you can expect for your child in their upcoming school year and how you can support them over the summer.
We hope to see you there!
