Dear Parents of the Mathewson Community,
We welcome and encourage you to get involved. Come to a meeting, join a committee, or help with an event. The success of each and every event and activity at Mathewson is dependent upon volunteer support. Many hands make light work! Help your children and help your fellow parents by considering what you can do to help with the PTA this year!
There are many activities that take place throughout the year. Find a complete list of activities and committees here http://www.milforded.org/page.cfm?p=8591. Whether you are new to the school, or a "seasoned veteran" you are welcome to join any committee that interests you. With the nature of the K-2 school, we have more volunteer turnover as parents and their children "move on" to the next school. For this reason, we need to pass the torch of leadership for committees quite often. If you are not ready to chair an event, then come on board as a committee member. Gain the knowlege to chair the event in the future!
Chairing a committee does not equal running an event! This is why we need many volunteers for each activity. This just makes it easier for everyone. Consider your strengths and how you can help. Please also keep in mind that there are lots of positions that can be done from home, so if you are unable to come in during the schoolday that's okay. For jobs big and small, please share your expertise with us.
We have created this facebook page as another way to keep our families informed of what is happening around the school. We will be posting updates about events, donation requests, meetings, and committees. If you have a question, please post it. We want this page to be interactive and informative. If you have a suggestion or an idea, wonder what time something starts, or want to get involved, this is a great, informal way for us to keep connected with our school and create new connections amongst our families.
We have a great opportunity to make the K-2 experience fun and memorable for our children! Please help us today by getting involved.
