PTA Meeting - February 15, 2018
Please join us for the next PTA meeting on February 15, 2018 from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. in the Media Center. Free childcare in room 102.   It will be an action packed meeting with the following items on the agenda:
  • Spring Auction update and fundraising goals
  • Ways & Means survey planning for 2018-19
  • Review current budget and spending through end of school year
  • Announce nominations for 2018-19 PTA Executive Board
  • Presentation by Lincoln Middle School Principal Michael Hans (7:45pm) 
Join the 2018-19 PTA Executive Board
The Nominating Committee has been working hard to confirm PTA Executive Board members for next year. I'm pleased to report that we have all positions spoken for except President, Historian, Auditor and Parliamentarian.  Serving on the Executive Board in any role is an opportunity for you to  connect more deeply with fellow parents, get to know Otis better, a nd support our kids/teachers in a meaningful way. It's a time and energy commitment for sure, but worth it in every way. In my role as PTA President I am honored to serve as a role model for all students and a liason between parents, faculty and staff. To see how our students and school have flourished and grown over the past 2 years brings me great happiness and I am so proud of our accomplishments. 
 
I encourage anyone interested in serving Otis and this amazing community to step up and be a leader. Please contact Erica Kolodny for more information about serving on the PTA Executive Board.
 
Thank you for supporting Otis!
 
Beth Aney
PTA President
 

FROM THE OTIS COMMUNITY

Otis Families, 
One of the best things about our community is that we take care of each other. We hold our families dear and near and treat each other's children as our own. One of our families needs help. They are accepting donations and holding an auction to raise money to help their son, Lucas, fulfill his dreams for the future. There are some great prizes but the auction ends this Sunday, February 11th. So check it out here. If you are interested in donating directly, go to this link at YouCaring.Com. 

Thank you,

Caring Members of the Otis Community
