Happy Wednesday, Mountain Lions!
Only six weeks left of school before summer but there's still TONS going on at Monte Vista and within YOUR PTO! There's still time to email email@example.com and find out how you can lend a hand and be part of the fun this semester. What's more, we are already looking ahead to next fall and now is your chance to get on board (or THE BOARD?) early to help make Monte Vista the best place to be in Kyrene! We are looking for (co)chairpeople for several committees and now is a great time to sign up and get familiar with chair duties BEFORE the fall rush.
ALSO, we are STILL in need of a PTO Board Co-President next year! "President" might sound intimidating, but anyone who's been in the position can tell you that PTO Boards are a cooperative venture with all members sharing the load of leading/coordinating and it's an immeasurable amount of FUN! Who are our past presidents? They are/have been stay-at-home parents, full-time working parents, part-time working parents, enthusiastic go-getters, soft-spoken work-horses, seasoned previous board members and folks who just jumped right in. The most important requirement: a willingness to do what it takes to support and put smiles on the faces of our families, teachers and administrators. WE NEED YOU! Won't you make the commitment to contribute to your school community and YOUR PTO in this way? You'd be in fantastic company! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

NEW SECTION - SPECIAL THANK YOU'S!
It's been shown that gratitude can lead to a happier life, so in the interest of promoting "the happy"at MonteVista, this new section has been created to send out thanks and call out some of the awesome folks that make our school community a very special place to be. There's simply no way to recognize everyone and express how much your time and talents mean to our school, but we're going to try our best! If you have someone you think deserves a special shout out of thanks for something they did within our school community, please send an email to email@example.com and let us know!
