A Message from the President
Thanks to all those who attended our general membership meeting this week. The nominating committee for next year’s board is Ricky Reid, Leslie Rhode and Aubrey Munguia. If you, or anyone you know, is interested in serving on next year’s board, please contact any of these ladies in person, or email Ricky at firstname.lastname@example.org or Leslie at email@example.com. Nominations will also be taken from the floor, at the election meeting being held on Wednesday, April 29, at 8am in Room 310.
At the same meeting, we also read proposed changes/updates to our current By Laws and Standing Rules for the Dripping Springs Elementary PTA. A link with a copy of those rules and the proposed changes are on our newly updated and launched website. Thank you to Leigh Ryan and Dana Mihaly for the hours spent updating our web presence and making it so much more user friendly! We will vote to adopt these changes at our meeting on Wednesday, April 29, at 8am in Room 310.
Don’t Forget! Spirit stick sales this Friday!

Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your thoughts and suggestions.
PTA Book Fair Brings in Big Funds
The first PTA run book fair was a huge success. The students raised over $200 in the All for Books change drive to benefit classroom libraries, and the PTA made over $4,000! Thank you to my wonderful co-coordinators (Amy Goertz, Carol LaBarre, and Cheryl Russey) and to everyone who volunteered at the fair; helped decorate, set up, or take down; judged the coloring contest; or came by to browse or shop. A lot of wonderful books went to our classroom libraries and even more went home with happy kids.
See you at the book fair next year!

Habit 1 — Be Proactive
You’re in Charge
I am a responsible person. I take initiative. I choose my actions, attitudes, and moods. I do not blame others for my wrong actions. I do the right thing without being asked, even when no one is looking.
