Welcome to the 2017 – 2018 School Year!
<9>“Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.” – Henry Ford
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome back our returning students and families to Van Zant Elementary and also extend a very heartfelt welcome to our new Van Zant families. I look forward to making 2017-2018 a fun and productive year.
I am excited to be starting my fifth year as PTO President. Throughout the years, we have been able to provide the students with so many great activities. On behalf of the entire board, and myself thank you so much to everyone who volunteered throughout the school years and helped make Van Zant great! The next couple of months will be hectic for all of us. With the return to homework, after-school activities, and sports, the calendars will be full. Be sure to check out the PTO calendar, which is available on our website — it will give you a heads up on the events planned throughout the school year. You are also able to now subscribe to the PTO calendar (using ical, etc.…).
The PTO Board has been working hard all summer to coordinate some exciting programs and events for the upcoming school year. Stay connected by checking www.vanzantpto.org and like our page on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/pages/Van-Zant-PTO. We will work hard to keep you in the know so make sure you don’t miss a thing by signing up for our email blasts, joining the PTO, and checking the weekly communicator envelope (all available on our website under PTO Docs-Welcome packet).
Our school is a great place to be and it just keeps getting better. Welcome Mr. DiBlasi!! We know you will do great things for our school. His commitment and dedication to our children inspires me to keep volunteering and help make Van Zant Elementary the best it can be. To keep our commitment to excellence requires the support of an entire community, and that means volunteers. If you would like to volunteer but are not sure where to start, just drop me a note. I will point in the right direction! Lastly, please remember that our PTO is only as strong as its members. So please consider joining and becoming an active member, every little bit helps – you can make a difference!
