As the school year comes to a close next week, we hope everyone takes time during the end-of-year chaos to relax and enjoy the excitement ahead!
Thank you to everyone that contributed to our last event of the school year, the Staff Appreciation Celebration and Summer Fair. Please join us this evening 14 June as parents, teachers and staff have a chance to unwind and enjoy themselves, We hope that all faculty and staff feel appreciated, as the parents truly do appreciate all that they have done this year!
We hope you enjoy the Summer Fair as well. If you are interested in understanding more about the selection process for craftsman, or how the event is planned, please take a moment to read a letter from the wonderful Svetlana Plyhun, the exceptional coordinator behind the event!
Thank you, also, to the fabulous parents that volunteered to be part of the PTA 2019 - 2020 Executive Committee. If you are still interested in joining the PTA, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org, as there is always room for more. Many hands make light work!
Please take a moment to read the letter below from this year's PTA president, Inna Zhurzhii.
Dear PSI Community:
It's been my great honour and privilege to serve the school on the PTA Executive Committee over the last 4 years. Thank you for trusting me to become the first (but surely not last) PTA President of Ukrainian origin. There are many ways each of us parents can serve the school, but being a part of the PTA team is probably one of the most enjoyable, fulfilling and rewarding experiences the school can offer to us.
I am very grateful to the dedicated team of fellow PTA members who accomplished so much over the course of this year:
Sarah Adams - Vice President
Zehavit Shany - PTA Treasurer
Tatiana O'Hara - PTA Secretary
Debbie McWhorter - PTA Newcomers And Communication Liaison
Olcum Alkan - PTA CISRI Coordinator
Ivanna Nikonova - PTA Art Coordinator
Inna Maistruk - PTA Event Coordinator
Sara Peralta - Member at large
Victoria Mcneil - Member at large, PTA Green Committee And Food Committee Representative
Renke Dirkse-Edens - Member at large (former PTA Newcomers And Communication Liaison)
Pam York - Primary Teachers Representative
Michele Basu - Secondary Teachers Representative
Together we made this journey and will now be heading out to new journeys in our lives. My professional commitments will keep me busy doing other things during the next school year, but I will continue to do my best to serve the school as a volunteer and support next year's PTA Executive Committee with advice.
Happy summer to all of you!
