The Sycolin Creek PTA is an organization of parent, teachers, and staff volunteers that work with the school to provide programs and activities that enhance our children's curriculum. We also assist the staff when needed, to purchase additional materials for the school that is not paid for by the state. Every student benefits from the PTA. We pride our school on the fact that we are able to offer so many free events and so much scholastic support to our student body. We want to provide the best education to help our children be competitive in the future and an enriched elementary school experience that will enhance their education and social development. We need your help to make this happen!
The PTA supports Sycolin Creek by annually providing teachers and staff with materials such as agendas, Friday folders, Time for Kids magazine, Scholastic News and SOL preparation materials. Last year, through our fund rasing efforts we were able to purchase 20 iPads and an iPad cart to be used in classrooms to further assist students in learning though technology. We are hoping to purchase additional iPads this year. The PTA has spent thousands of dollars since the school opened on such projects and programs as the playgrounds, the track, student assemblies, field trips and countless other items. We can not do this without support from our generous families.
The PTA also sponsors family events such as Spirit Nights, Reading under the Stars, Muffins with Moms, Donuts with Dads and our ever popular Fall Festival. It is important to remember that the PTA is a non-profit organization - all proceeds from your dues and fundraisers go directly to benefit the school and its students!
Becoming involved in the PTA can be extremely rewarding. You are involved in your child’s education, and studies show that children perform better in school when their parents are involved. In addition, you meet other parents, share your opinions and concerns, and stay informed on what is happening at Sycolin Creek. Membership also allows you to have a voice by voting on such important issues as to the PTA budget. All members will receive a membership card that will allow you to receive discounts to local, state, and national retailers such as MELT in Leesburg, Great Wolf Lodge, the Washington Nationals, and Hertz.
The main reason you should join is so that your children can continue to benefit from the many events, activities and services the PTA provides. We need YOUR help to keep making these things happen!
