Pearsontown Elementary School PTA’s 2020-21 Goals:

This year, we promise to:
support our teachers, administrators and staff. 
We will continue to offer the same high level of support as we have in the past. We will expand the support to target needs during a global pandemic.

return to advocacy. 
This includes asking who isn’t engaged and who isn’t at the table. It will also include being more involved at the local, state and national level. We will seek to have more family engagement, especially from those that haven’t participated in the past. We will actively remove the barriers to participation.

establish an inclusive, effective board while being nimble and responsive.
This is the internal work we’re doing that allows us to best achieve goals one and two.

For teachers and staff: 2020-2021 All About Me Form

Even though we’re not in the school building at this time, we know that school life goes on and that you may be missing the help you usually receive from Room Parents and other volunteers. The Staff Appreciation Committee is ready and willing to fill this void and help you in any way we can – there is a question on this form about that.

And while we can’t provide lunches on early release days and other in-person celebrations, it seems more important than ever to find ways to let y’all know how much you’re loved and appreciated. And the more questions you answer on this form, the more options it will give us to celebrate YOU!!
