Welcome back, Belinder families! And a warm welcome to our new families…we are so glad you are here!
I am Addie Perry, the 2018-2019 PTA President, and I’m so excited to kick off this school year! I have boys in 3rd and 5th grades at Belinder and, we have loved every minute. We have the best staff and faculty you could ask for. And the Belinder community is so special: kind and inclusive and the perfect place for our children to grow.
The mission of PTA is to advocate for our students. We do this in lots of ways, such as legislative awareness, enrichment opportunities, community building, and fundraising. You can learn more about each of these areas, including Race for Excellence, Belinder PTA’s tax-deductible 501(c)(3) initiative to fund salaries not covered by the district (one math aide, one reading aide and one part-time counselor) at www.belinderpta.org.
We love new faces when it comes to volunteering and encourage you to get involved in any manner that suits you. It doesn’t matter if you have lots of time to give, or not much at all, there is a way for you to be involved. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to any PTA Officer if you need help finding a good fit!
Stay tuned for lots of information to come in the next couple weeks! Make sure to follow us on Facebook at Belinder Elementary PTA. It is going to be a great year!
Addie Perry, Belinder PTA President
