President's Message
We have a lot of business to conduct at the upcoming PTA Meeting this Friday, March 29th at 8:30am in the Library. I hope you can all make it as we will have the exciting to do of voting in our Board for next year! Plus, we'll have tasty donuts to accompany our other agenda items.  We will only have two remaining PTA meetings after this month, so please be sure to put these on your calendar: May 3rd and May 31st.  
See you Friday! Sandy

PTA Announcements  

Ralston PTA's Parent Education Event on Monday!
Click here to RSVP  for an informative evening with guest speaker, Mary Hofstedt, from Challenge Success! Mary will be delivering the "Well-Balanced Student" presentation on Monday, March 25, 2019 from 6:30–8pm in the MUR.
This event is open to all members of our BRSSD parent community.  
Summary of presentation:  When we are too focused on grades and performance, we deny our children time and energy they need to tackle the demanding work of growing up. In this presentation, you'll learn how you can establish a healthier home environment, reduce academic stress without sacrificing achievement and increase your children's resilience, creativity, and well being. 
Last Call for the Safe Routes to School Parent Survey
Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey. Your feedback allows us to adjust Safe Routes to School (SRTS) education and encouragement program features to best meet the needs of each individual school.  Your feedback will also be shared with decision makers throughout the county who can address infrastructure issues regarding safe walking and biking. This survey will take approximately 5 minutes to complete and will close 3/29.

Gracias por tomarse el tiempo para llenar esta encuesta. Su participación nos permite ajustar las características de educación y fomento del programa Rutas Seguras a la Escuela para cumplir mejor con las necesidades de cada escuela.  Sus comentarios también serán compartidos con autoridades que pueden abordar cuestiones de infraestructura acerca de caminar y andar en bicicleta con seguridad.  La encuesta no tomará más de 5 minutos en completarse. 

Check For Lost & Found Items
