Letter from the PTO Co-Presidents

Greetings Parents,
Happy Fall! We hope your children had a nice first month of school!
We would like to invite you to our first PTO meeting of the school year; it will be Tuesday, October 8th at 8:30am. We have a great agenda for you:

  • Presentation from our school lunch provider, Whitsons
  • Discuss & approve the PTO budget for the school year
  • Meet Alan Ripp, Curriculum Coordinator of History and Social Studies. As many of you already know, Principal Harold did not receive an anticipated waiver from the state to work full time and will not work most Fridays. In her absence, Mr. Ripp will be covering.
  • Learn about upcoming events
  • Updates from Safe Routes to SchoolCreative Arts & Sciences, and Families Organizing for Racial Justice

You’ll also learn how you can get involved with the Underwood PTO, so please come and bring your smiles and questions! And as usual, younger siblings are welcome.
Finally, as you probably already know, our next PTO activity will be the Mystery Dinner on the evening of October 19th (we still need hosts!!!). This is a fun, adult only event where you will meet other parents while eating good food. Be on the lookout for the invite coming your way soon!

Anne-Marie Gravel & Jen Tsuda
