Letter from the PTO President

Hello Underwood Families! 

Happy Spring!!!

As you may already know, in Newton the enrichment program (Creative Arts and Sciences – CAS) is financed and run by the PTOs. CAS is a complement to the elementary school curriculum and teachers appreciate the presentations/activities that wrap up and add to what your children are learning in class. In order to insure its success and continuity at Underwood, we need parents to step up and volunteer. As the sole committee chair this year, Jillian has done an awesome job managing the program; however it is too much work for one person and we are in need of one or two more co-chair(s) in order to prevent cutting down the program to the bare minimum. CAS is very important to our community so PLEASE consider getting involved. If we are able to build a great team of co-chairs, CAS will be more manageable and will run smoothly. You can find out more about the CAS program here. Don’t hesitate to contact me (anne_mariegravel@yahoo.ca) or Jillian (jillianfeinberg@gmail.com) if you have questions and/or want to learn more about the co-chair responsibilities.

Next Tuesday, April 9th is our annual Teachers’ Appreciation Luncheon. We are still in need of main and side dishes, as well as volunteers for set-up and clean-up. Please sign up here.

Last, but not least, we hope to see you at our next Principal’s coffee on Thursday, April 11th at 8:30 am in the MPR. Superintendent Fleishman and school committee members will be present to give you updates and answer questions.

Best,
Anne-Marie Gravel
