PARENT TEACHER MINISTRY (PTM)
Dear Parents of Evergreen Christian School,
First, welcome (or welcome back) to ECS! We hope you have been enjoying your summer!
Whether you’re new to ECS or your kids have been attending for years, there are always new and exciting events, as well as the old standards to participate in each year. Most of these events you can find on the school calendar.
To get you off on the right foot, I’d like to call your attention to the events in the first month of school:
Sept 5: Back to School Night 4:30-6:30
Sept 6: Boo Hoo Breakfast, 9am in Rupp Hall
Sept 14: First morning PTM meeting, Rupp Hall
Sept 14: Evening PTM meeting, 6:30, Rupp Hall
Sept 11-15: Book Fair in the gym
Sept 22: Family Game night in the gym
Sept 30: Glow Run at Lacey RAC
The first two events really kick off the school year to help connect our community and provide support to fellow parents. Food will be available for purchase at Back to School Night, and please mingle while on campus visiting your students’ teachers. The Boo Hoo Breakfast is designed for those parents who are sending their little ones off to Kindergarten. We hope to see you there.
Many people don’t know what the PTM does (come to the first meeting to get the scoop!). Our mission is to support ECS, its students, staff and families and raise up the next generation for Christ by providing community building and academic enrichment activities. We do this by hosting events, fundraisers and programs to build up our community, as well as hold community-building activities, organizing after-school enrichment programs, helping to support staff development and by purchasing supplies and equipment not in the budget. This includes, but is not limited to: purchasing playground equipment, improving the library, buying sports uniforms, providing computers for the technology lab, etc.
One last thing, there are ways in which to contribute to the PTM monetarily without spending any extra effort. Go to these websites to find out how:
- Fred Meyer: https://www.fredmeyer.com/topic/community-rewards-4
- Target: https://corporate.target.com/corporate-responsibility/education
We hope you get involved with the PTM this year and really help our events be a smash! We will have monthly meetings, which will be held in room 201 to discuss current and future events and programs (Dates to follow). Please know that coming to a meeting in no way commits you volunteering or making a large time commitment in any way. We just want you to be informed about what’s going on around the school. We will also strive to make volunteering fun and accessible to ALL parents. You will NEVER be turned away! Our first meetings will be an evening meeting September 15 for those of you who are less available in the morning, and a PTM Tea the morning of September 22.
