    Dear Evans Families,


    Welcome back to all returning families and a big WELCOME to all new families. I am so proud and honored to work with an amazing group of parents this year on the PTA Board as President. Please visit the PTA website https://www.wappingersschools.org/Page/851 to keep updated on Evans happenings, sign up for membership, and much more! Check it out and let us know if you have any comments or suggestions. 


    We are asking for your support so that we can continue making resoutces and learning opportunities available to our students and staff. Your membership allows the PTA to raise funds to provide a wide range of educational enrichment programs for the students. Money raised through PTA membership and other fundraisers throughout the year helps to fund programs brought into the school to enhance the children’s learning experience. Over the years, the PTA has provided learning opportunities and social activities that may have otherwise been unavailable. For the PTA to be effective and representative of the school, everyone’s participation is essential. Many parents feel that they cannot participate in the PTA because they cannot come to meetings or be at school during the day. We want everyone to feel that they are part of the Evan’s Community. Whether you have 30 minutes or a couple of hours, your ideas, your time, your talents, and simply your VOICE is truly needed. We can match your time constraints and interests to needed tasks. There are endless possibilities in ways you can help. 


    Keep in mind that by volunteering at our school you will get to enjoy interacting with the kids, become friends with other parents, and accomplish things that truly make a difference. Some of my closest friends are ones that I have met through volunteering and PTA. We have many ways in which Moms, Dads, Aunts, Uncles, Grandparents, and Businesses can contribute to the Evan’s Family. Research shows that students whose parents are involved in their education have better grades and fewer discipline problems. We promise that the time you give to the PTA and the school will be worth your while - and FUN! Please consider volunteering, it really does make a difference in the lives of all our students!


    We would like to thank you in advance for your support. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. Have a wonderful school year.
