Vea esta página en español

Good Evening, Kramer Families!

I hope you have all had a great weekend! Please see the PTA Updates for this week below. There are lots of things coming up in the next few months--get them on your calendars now! If you are interested in helping with any of the events, please let us know.

First of all, I'd like to share a few highlights from the past few weeks. Last month the PTA wrote a check for $2373 securing the Razz Kids program for ALL Kramer students. At the Health Fair last week, the PTA donated two bikes for the raffle. And last but not least, a group of parents recently renovated the closet in Ms. Ruiz's classroom--it looks amazing!! 

Meetings This Week

This week we are having two special committee meetings to start working on a couple of special projects. On Monday the 23rd at 6:30 in the library, a group is meeting to discuss New Kramer Parent Support and how we can best engage and communicate to new parents who will become part of the Kramer family next year. 

On Thursday, there will be a meeting to discuss starting a campaign to raise money for the new blacktop. We need to raise about $70,000 and will need a lot of ideas. 

If you are interested in either or both of these committees, please join us. If you can't make it but want to help, please reply to this email and let us know.
