Hello Breakthrough family,
My name is Miguelina Zapata, the President of the School Home Association (SHA), just in case you didn't know ;). I am reaching out to you because we need your help. We have different committees set up in Konstella that need active committee members. I understand we are all very busy, but this will enhance our community involvement and will ensure that our events/ activities are well-planned and other important things that are behind the scenes help our school run smoothly. We would like to bring activities that increase community engagement and bring families together.
I would like to ask for your time to be an active participant in one of the committees. I know I can count on you. Enclosed, there is a brief description of each committee at the bottom of this letter. Please go to Konstella, and sign up for it, if you can. We promise it won't take a lot of time to make a huge difference.
We are also currently creating a Survival Guide to New Parents. We would like to get input from parents about what to include in this survival guide. We also want help creating it so that parents can take ownership of the guide.
Thank you so much!
