Greetings from your PTA President!

Hello Bendwood Families! Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year. I am honored to serve as the Bendwood PTA president this year. This is my third trip as a parent through Bendwood. Having two children who have gone on to middle school and high school, the memories from their short time here stays with them today. This year’s PTA Executive Board and PTA committee members come from a variety of the elementary schools in our district: Nottingham, Valley Oaks, Frostwood, Wilchester, Cedar Brook, Bunker Hill, Pine Shadows, and Memorial Drive Elementary schools. I’m excited to work with such a supportive group of parents.

SPIRAL classes began on Monday, August 31st! Are you ready for an exciting year studying Migration? Ancient Civilizations? Wild Weather? Engineering? Medical Science? Technology and Robotics? Bendwood teacher assignments were sent home with your students last week. With your teacher assignment, you received a school supply list specific for SPIRAL classrooms, as well as two district forms to be returned to your child’s Bendwood teacher.

The Bendwood Elementary cafeteria prepares the Early Learning Center Menu (available here).

The Bendwood PTA holds 4 general PTA meetings a year typically in conjunction with a SPIRAL event or function, stay tuned to mark your calendars with those dates. Our first general PTA meeting will be held in conjunction with Curriculum Night on Sept. 21st, at 6pm. I encourage all parents to attend because you will meet your child’s teachers and receive an overview of what they will be learning this year at Bendwood.

Best regards,

Mary Hoffman
PTA President
