Welcome to the new website!

Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year and to the NEW New Market Elementary PTA website!

Many exciting activities and events are planned for the upcoming year. Our PTA is an integral part of our school community. We work closely with parents, teachers, administrators, and the community to achieve the best educational opportunities for our children; quality education is a cooperative effort!

NMES PTA offers many programs. Among other things, we support school trips, in-school artist residencies, cultural arts events and educational magazine subscriptions.  We host family activities such as dances and movie nights, free for PTA members.  We offer our teachers start-up funds and express our gratitude for their hard work though our hospitality committee.  Last year, we contributed funds for the purchase of our mascot, Wacky the Wolf.  This is all possible as a result of our fundraising activities;  all proceeds benefit our children.

The PTA is also a valuable service organization.  Our members generously volunteer their time and energy in the classroom and at home, working with students and staff, planning events, and so much more to support our students. With that being said, we know that sometimes life is so full that volunteering is just not an option. PLEASE do not let that deter you from joining.  We also aim to be a resource to help busy families stay aware of what’s happening at school.

Please consider becoming an active and integral part of our organization.  We would love to see you at our monthly Board of Directors meetings. Check the PTA calendar for dates and times.  We encourage you to join and support PTA. Your input and suggestions are welcomed. Your involvement will make a difference.

 This is our PTA, and your opinions matter. Please feel free to contact me directly at jenkitchen.pta@gmail.com anytime!
