Hello Bolton PTA Parents and Friends,
The leaves on the trees have begun to change and the children are settled into their back to school routines. The PTA has already offered some fun events and programs and we are now moving forward, headlong into autumn!
The Bolton PTA is an organization that advocates on behalf of our children, supports our families and provides vital information that parents need. We provide educational and social opportunities where families, teachers and children have fun, learn and get to know one another.
The PTA also raises money, which we use to provide all of the fantastic programs for our students. We also use these funds to support our teachers, providing stipends to our PTA member teachers for much needed classroom supplies that school budget just can’t cover. We provide science programs, author visits, popular books for the libraries at both BCS and BHS and anti-bullying programs. None of these would be possible without the hard work of our dedicated volunteers and the generosity of our community. These are things that our school cannot afford but that the parents, teachers and community members believe are important. The Executive Board of the Bolton PTA would like to thank you for your time and your continued support and we hope that you will continue to be generous with your time (even an hour would be great!) and your donations (this is how we provide the programs!).
Like many of you, one of the reasons that my family moved to Bolton was because of our successful, award winning schools. Our small class sizes, dedicated staff and engaged parents are a formula for success. Bolton Center School is a place that prepares our children to be successful in high school and Bolton High School is a place that prepares our children to be competitive and successful in college and careers. Bolton High School was again recognized as one of “America’s Best High Schools” by Newsweek earlier this year. The Bolton PTA applauds this. Notably, the PTA publicly supported the Bolton High School Addition and Renovation Project a few years ago because the PTA believed in investing in the future of our children here in our beloved town. We are proud that this investment has continued to be fruitful! As Nelson Mandela said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” The Bolton PTA will continue to work this year to ensure that our Bolton students are well equipped to change the world…..we hope that you will join us!
With warm regards,
Katherine (Kate) Gallé
