Happy Fall Y’All!

Now that we have been in school for over a month things seem to have started “falling” into place and everything is humming along.


With Fall comes the start of many of our  PTA sponsored programs.   We have had a fantastic start to our Reading Programs.  Best Foot Forward kicked off with a bang last week.  Their first day open they broke a record with the amount of kids who came back to interview on their books.  It is so exciting to start off with such enthusiasm. 


Our other reading program, Accelerated Reader, is also being launched in many of the 2nd - 5th grade classes.   All the books at the school, including the school library, BFF, and classroom books, have been labeled with Accelerated Reader labels.  These labels will help the students make good choices in selecting books at their reading level.


PTA is enthusiastic about supporting our Music and Arts programs at Moffett.  We have had a great start to Music with Mrs. Toghia, 3rd and 4th grade Xylophone program and Art Masters.  We are also excited to show off all the beautiful Reflections art work that was submitted by many of our students.


In order to support these wonderful programs we have to raise money to make them happen.   At the beginning of the month we kicked up our Fall Fundraiser of Love Bags and Entertainment Card to Go.  Thanks for supporting this fundraiser.  Every little bit helps. 


On October 19th we will be hosting one of our biggest fundraisers, The Fall Festival.  This is a huge undertaking to create this fun community event.  If you haven’t already signed up to volunteer, please do so.  When everyone does a little, no one has to do a lot.


We are also looking forward to offering Mrs. Fields Cookie Dough in November.   This is a great opportunity to get some sweets for your holiday gatherings.


Thank you to everyone who signed up to be a PTA member.  We have had a tremendous response and plan to meet our goal of 550 members by the end of October.  We are almost there.  So if you have overlooked this opportunity please sign up today.


I know I say this a lot, but I am so honored to be part of such a great school with supportive parents and enthusiastic learners. 


Enjoy the season!
