A Message from Our PTO President:
Welcome back! I hope that everyone had a wonderful time over the holidays and got some much needed R & R. While last year gave our community many challenges, there is light at the end of the tunnel and a solid chance (fingers crossed) that next year will be a more normal school year. I know that everyone is very eager to get back on campus and re-engage with our amazing Roy Cloud community.
In 2020, despite numerous challenges, the PTO was able to provide classroom support in the form of materials for students, office equipment like additional computer monitors and chairs for teachers, and teacher training. The PTO also funded counseling services and social/emotional support for students. Lastly, we continued to offer enrichment activities for K-8 students, which included PE, STEAM, Garden, Science, and even our new Spanish language pilot program. In our ever-changing environment, the PTO has pivoted to service the needs of our community and we will continue to do so.
As we look ahead to the rest of the school year, the PTO is actively working with our teachers and administration to provide the most meaningful experience for our students at Roy Cloud. In early spring 2021, and earlier than in past years, we will be evaluating all of the enrichment programs for the 2021-22 school year. Our direct donations campaign has been impressive thus far in a challenging year and that is a testament to the generosity of our outstanding parent community. You’ve shown that “we’re all in this together!” Thank you to all who were able to contribute! Though we have decided to cancel our 2021 Auction, the Jog-A-Thon, which will occur in May, is moving ahead. This year may not look like years past, but the PTO is planning a fun and safe event designed to get everyone moving (and fundraising a little more for Roy Cloud).
It is a pleasure to serve you as PTO President and I feel very lucky to be working with such a dedicated team. We have an amazing group of volunteers on this board and I look forward to working with them for the remainder of the year. Please make it a point to attend our monthly member meetings and stay in touch with the Thunderbolt to hear about all the exciting stuff we have planned.
