Letter from the President
Greetings Stinson families,
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! My name is Jeri Duncan and I am looking forward to being the PTA President this school year.
I would like to invite you to explore our new website. We have redesigned it with some great features. This website is the central location where you can purchase your PTA memberships, update your account information, sign up for volunteer opportunities, order spirit wear, search the membership directory, and find important details regarding PTA activities. You can subscribe to the detailed calendars and our Star to Star e-newsletter, and find a link to the Stinson PTA Facebook page. A new feature for this school year is the ability to sign up for text reminders from the PTA through a service called Remind. These are all easy ways to stay up to date with the PTA.
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. It is NOT a requirement of membership, but it 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. You will show your children that you are interested in their education and in what is going on in their world. 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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
Jeri Duncan, Stinson PTA President
