Letter from the President

 

Greetings Stinson families,          

 

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! My name is Emily Just and I am looking forward to being the PTA (Parent Teacher Association) President this school year.

 

This is my 8th year as a Stinson parent and 10th in Plano ISD. Volunteering and serving in any way I can has been my passion for many years and I am thrilled to serve in a broader way this year. 

 

Whether you are a returning parent or brand-new to Stinson, welcome to our school! Take a moment to look around our website, it is the central location where you can purchase your PTA membership, sign up for volunteer opportunities, order spirit wear, and find important details regarding PTA activities. Just look for the Welcome Button on our home page and it will take you to these sign-up links!

 

You can subscribe to the detailed calendars and our Star to Star e-newsletter, and find a link to the Stinson PTA Facebook page.

 

I would also like to encourage you to get involved at Stinson this school year. Whether you choose to volunteer your time or your talent (or both), we have numerous opportunities throughout the year for you to do that. Our programs and events would not be possible without the help from volunteers and is a great way to connect with the teachers and staff and other parents at the school. When parents and teachers work together, our children benefit. On this website is a list of our PTA board positions and contact list. We have some empty spaces on this list that we would love to get filled- if you are interested in fulfilling one of these roles, please let me know.

 

If you do plan to volunteer this school year, you will need to update your PISD background check.  This is required to be done every year after July 1st. The link is on the home page of our website.  If you have children at any other Plano ISD schools besides Stinson, be sure that you check the appropriate boxes for each.

 

If you would like more information about the Stinson PTA and ways you can be involved, please feel free to contact me at president@stinsonpta.org.  We are always looking for more family and community members who share our commitment to improving the education, health and safety of our students.

 

Sincerely,

Emily Just, Stinson PTA President
