As we approach the 2020-2021 school year, the Douglas PTA board has already been meeting regularly with our organization’s purpose at the forefront of our planning.
In a normal year, the Douglas PTA is the sole funding mechanism for teacher stipends and grants, our community garden, our butterfly garden, schoolwide projects, various school clubs, the spelling bee, mathletes, Odyssey of the Mind — the list goes on. We also support the school library through the Scholastic Book Fair, fund the Cultural Arts Program, and fund our school food pantry. We pay for these programs through two major fundraisers, and to be honest, we are not sure what those fundraising opportunities will look like this year.
Our prospects to fulfill our purpose and programs this year will look different than in prior years, but we will earnestly continue to support our students, families and teachers. Health and safety will be a priority and our beloved events and fundraisers will need to be reconstructed as we look toward new opportunities to support our organizational goals.
If you have ever considered joining the PTA, this is the year to join and help us.
We welcome all input from our families, teachers, and the wider community. Please see the link below to join the PTA and watch this space for further information on the start of school.
We would like to show our Douglas teachers that our school families have their backs and have set a goal for 50 families to join the PTA this week ahead of the school year starting. Please support our school community by joining and/or donating at https://douglas.memberhub.store/.
Thank you for your support!
