Welcome back! I hope everyone had a lovely spring break. Spring is in full bloom and Stratford is planning many more events to close out our school year.
It was wonderful seeing everyone at the joint PTA elementary meeting on April 20th. I hope you enjoyed all the information regarding the new Innovation Labs at Stewart and Stratford.
On April 3, the PTA held its districtwide Reflections Award ceremony. Student artists were celebrated for their creative talents in the fields of dance, literature, music, photography and the visual arts. The ceremony included live performances as well as award presentations for students and their families. Congratulations to everyone!
On April 27, the Family Fun Committee held the first of their Stratford Bingo Nights! Students and families had fun playing bingo and great prizes were handed out to the Bingo champions. The PTA Family Fun Committee has planned the Spring Event as a series and the next Bingo Night will be held on Wednesday May 10. Thank you as always to our phenomenal Family Fun Committee and all the amazing and devoted PTA volunteers that make these events possible.
On April 29, the Garden City Teachers Association held their annual GC for a Cure Fun Run and 5k. Runners and walkers were able to enjoy the spring weather while raising money for a great cause.
April was a busy month and May promises even more great events including spring concerts, staff appreciation and many more PTA sponsored events. As always be on the lookout via backpack fliers, emails and social media.
The Beautification Committee has planned some amazing projects for the Spring. Many of these projects include the students participating in beautifying their school. Please be on the lookout for information and SUGs if you would like to help out or for more information.
The PTA will be assisting the Stratford community in service learning projects for the Spring. The Stratford community has always been focused on instilling a sense of community and promoting learning through active participation in service experiences. As such the PTA will be providing students with an opportunity to help children and families through Ronald McDonald house charities in the Spring.
The Stratford Staff Appreciation Lunch will be held on May 11. Preparations are underway to celebrate and thank our staff and teachers for all that they do. Please be on the lookout for further information and a sign-up genius.
Another year is flying by at Stratford and I would like to take another moment to sincerely thank all of the parents, staff and administration that make Stratford such an amazing school and community. Thank you for making Stratford the special and unique place that it is.
