WFE PTA BLOG:
Welcome back, Wake Forest Elementary families!
We hope everyone had a wonderful Summer Break, and are looking forward to a great year ahead.
We are gearing up for the start of school on Monday, August 28, and you will find information below on upcoming important dates and volunteer opportunities.
On Wednesday, August 23, from 11:45 a.m. - 12:45 p.m., the PTA will be hosting our Welcome Back Teacher Appreciation Luncheon in the Cafeteria. Food will be catered by The Lemon Tree, with the PTA providing plates, cups, napkins, drinks, and desserts. We are asking for 2 volunteers to help set up and disassemble at this time. If you can help, please email our PTA President, Karen Egan, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also on Wednesday, August 23, from 5:15 - 6:15 p.m., we will be having Meet the Teacher Night for Grades 1 - 5. Class Assignments will be posted in the lobby by 4 p.m. for those unable to make the later event. The PTA will have a table set up in the Media Center to sign up new members and sell merchandise. We are asking for volunteers to take up 15 minute shifts to help out with this. You can sign up to volunteer at the following link: www.SignUpGenius.com/go/9040E4AAEA96-20172018
If you are interested in becoming a Volunteer with our school, you will need to sign up in the Media Center with a valid NC driver's license. It is a requirement to be able to enter your child's classroom throughout the school year, as well as to chaperone field trips, eat lunch with your child, and other activities. You will be able to sign up in the Media Center during Meet the Teacher on Wednesday.

Who is keeping up this blog?
Hey, it's me, Kenna. My kid is in Mrs. Matala's 4th grade class. I'm keeping the blog and website up for the moment. Let me know what you want to see more or less of. I need feedback to make changes. Thank you for participating in the PTA. I believe all of our kids benefit when we pay attention.
