Hello PTA Family,On behalf of Delaware PTA, I wanted to take a moment and thank each and every one of you for your support and contributions in standing with Delaware PTA to advocate for Every Child with One Voice. This year has brought both challenges and successes for our communities, students and teachers. As PTA members we continue to work together to raise awareness of these challenges and then leverage the resources needed to meet them. Together we share a vision of a public education system in which every child’s potential is a reality. As we prepare to celebrate the holidays and enjoy our time with our friends and families, please take a moment to reflect on where we have been, where we are and where we are going. Delaware PTA has several great initiatives planned for 2015 and we hope that we can count on your continued support and engagement as we look forward to sharing with you a stronger and more prosperous 2015. We wish everyone a safe and happy holiday. Here is a sneak peak of the 2015 calendar. With warm regards, Dr. Terri Hodges, Delaware PTA President —————————————————————————————————————————————————————–
