Welcome to the 2023-24 School Year at Churchill! I hope you and your families had a fantastic summer and are rested and ready for another exciting and enriching school year. My name is Melissa Friedman, and I am thrilled to serve as the Parents Association President for a second year.
The primary mission of the Churchill Parents Association is to support and strengthen our community. With the help of our dedicated and talented parent and caregiver volunteers, the PA was able to host a variety of events for our families last year. Some of our highlights included:
· Winter and Spring Carnivals
· Winter Cocktail Party (for parents and caregivers only)
· Virtual Quiz Night (for parents and caregivers only)
· In-school Book Fair with McNally Jackson
· Family Ice Skating Party
· Contribute funds for the Middle School Party and High School Prom
· Contribute student experiences for the Benefit Auction
· Treats for school professionals during Teacher Appreciation Week
We plan to continue with these activities and create more! We are always looking for new ways for our families to connect outside of school. If you are interested in joining a committee, volunteering, serving as a Grade Representative or have an idea for an event or program, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Besides our community building events, the PA facilitates the Gratitude Fund each November. This Fund provides monetary gifts before the holidays to all our wonderful and talented Churchill School Professionals. Please consider contributing to this fund (see link to the right) as a show of thanks for all the hard work and dedication of our school professionals.
Once again, we will be holding our monthly PA meetings through Zoom as a more convenient option. Most of our meetings will take place at 9am but we will also hold one or two evening meetings for parents and caregivers who are unavailable in the morning. Our first meeting will be at 9am on October 11th. And please join us in the Churchill Courtyard after drop off (8am) on September 12th for our Welcome Back Breakfast. It will be a nice opportunity to reconnect with old friends and meet some new ones!
Lastly, our PA events are funded by the generous contribution of PA Dues. If you haven’t contributed your dues already, please click on the link to the right to learn more about PA Dues and contribute.
Thank you for being a part of the Churchill Community. I hope you have a wonderful start to the school year and I look forward to seeing you throughout the year!
