2020-2021 PTA Executive Board

I have spent the past month since we left school trying to figure out how our PTA can best serve our community. After numerous meetings with Dr. Zissios, past president Jane Davis-Boglione, and upcoming president Melissa Carstens, we have some direction. It has been my pleasure to serve you as President and I am very sad that I have not been able to finish my term at school, seeing all of your faces.  However, I hope to continue to support our community as best as I can through our PTA's refocused priorities and in transitioning to our 2020-2021 incoming board. Please see the proposed incoming board outlined below.  We will have a public vote at a General Membership Meeting on Wednesday, April 29th at 6pm (details below).  

Please join me in thanking our outgoing board members for their tireless commitment and volunteer hours at school: Michele Clementi, Leslie Golden, Sheila Kennett Johnson, Samantha Brady, and Shane Greer

Baroody ASP

For those who enrolled in the Spring Session ASP’s, there are three options available to you for the cancelled classes: You may request a refund, donation, or credit (credits should be requested only for Baroody summer camps, Baroody online classes, etc...but not for our ASP program for the next school year, as we are unsure at this point what we will be offering). Please contact Baroody with your preference: email Baroody.

Yearbook

2019-20 Yearbooks will be delivered to our school at the start of the 20-21 school year.  A process will be in place for families who are no longer at the school to pick theirs up. For those who have moved out of the area, we will ship them. We will not order many extra books, therefore yearbooks will need to be pre-ordered.

ORDER NOW for $30.

(Staff members, please email me, in order to reserve your yearbook, there is no online payment option for the $20 price)

With several of our beloved events not happening this school year we would love to add a learning at home section to our yearbook!  Please email photos of your students learning at home and any special projects/creative activities to: lctayrbk@gmail.com

(please remember to send photos in the highest resolution possible for optimal printing)

Staying Active with Mr. Abed

As with everything, you may need to adjust based on the age/ability of your child.  I will continue to update this throughout the break and I will try to hit on as many sports as I can.  I have also included family workout videos, yoga for kids, and dance party videos for kids.  If you have come across any resources that you think would be great, please send me an email (peter.abed@acps.k12.va.us) so I can add it to this list.  Thanks! - Mr. Abed
