President’s Welcome Letter

Welcome everyone to a new school year.


Greetings Harry Stone Montessori Parents!


My name is Vitia Martinez and I have the privilege of serving as your PTA president for the 2013-14 school year. The PTA plays an important role because it brings together the efforts of parents and teachers to help make Harry Stone the best learning environment for our children. Every year we strive to make the PTA stronger than the year before. While we will continue to host family events like our Daddy/Daughter Dance and Family Fun Night, this year we will also focus on three key areas:


Increasing PTA membership – We need help from all of our parents and teachers to continue putting on family programs and raising funds to support school initiatives. By becoming a member of PTA and attending meetings, parents can also stay informed of the events and decisions taking place at our school. To join, simply attend our next PTA meeting and register with our Membership Chair or register online.


Fostering parent and teacher involvement – At Harry Stone, we are more than just a school, we are a community. Each parent and teacher is a valuable contributor to our children’s education. Through PTA we can collaborate on the issues that affect our children inside and outside of the classroom.


Communicating more effectively – The PTA will work with school administration to keep parents up-to-date on upcoming events and important school information. In addition, we encourage teachers and parents to provide input throughout the year to address any needs or concerns.


The PTA board and I are excited to get this year underway, and we invite you to join us at any one of our next meetings. In the meantime, please contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to having a great school year.
