Dear Eastview Families:
As this year’s PTA President, I would like to welcome back all of our returning families! To our new families, welcome to the Eastview community! I look forward to meeting and getting to know those of you that I haven’t met yet! I am proud and honored to work with an amazing group of parents this year on the PTA Executive board as well as the several Committee chairs and members. We hope you all enjoyed the fun-filled summer days, and it is with great enthusiasm that we invite you to get ready for another exciting and successful year!
Eastview’s PTA Membership Drive is underway! The PTA is an organization that is committed to making a difference in the education of all of our children. We partner with our parents, teachers, staff and community on many levels to bring fun and educational programs, events, services and opportunities to our children to enrich their academic experience. I invite everyone to become members of the Eastview PTA. It is $7 for a primary membership and $5 for a secondary parent membership. Your contribution, whether it is your time, knowledge or resources make a difference. A PTA membership form will be coming home to you in your Friday family folder.

New this year, we are having a Parent’s Night Out at Parker’s Grille and Tavern on Thursday, September 8th. Please come join friends old and new to start off the school year. Many of us are already planning to attend, so please join us! To ensure we have enough food, please RSVP at the following link:
We hope you will also join us for our PTA meetings beginning with our first meeting on Tuesday, September 13th at 9:15AM in the Eastview Cafeteria. Meetings last about an hour and are a great way to find out what is going on at Eastview, not only from the PTA but also Mr. Matthews! The meeting dates for this year are as follows: Sept 13, Oct 11*, Nov 8, Jan 10, Feb 7*, Mar 14, April 11 and May 9. All meetings are at 9:15AM in the Eastview except for the October and February meetings. The October and February meetings will be held at 7:30PM in the evening at Parker’s Grille and Tavern to accommodate working parents! Please feel to bring younger siblings to the morning meetings.
We are continually focusing on trying to improve PTA communication to Eastview families. Once our membership drive has ended, we will have an email database that we will use for most of our communications. You can also find information regarding the PTA on Eastview’s home page. We are also in the process of creating an Eastview PTA website - more information coming soon! Last, you can also get paper communication from the Eastview PTA through your child’s folder at school or the Friday family folder that comes home each week.
On behalf of the PTA Executive Board, Committee chairs/members and all the volunteers, we wish everyone a very productive year ahead and look forward to your continued support! Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 904-386-5231. Please know that questions and suggestions are always welcome!
