Forest Grove PTA Starts February 9!

I am so excited to begin our journey together at Forest Grove Elementary! In a few short months, we expect the building to be complete and the move in process to begin as we prepare for the inaugural school year in 2021-22! There is a lot to be done between now and the start of the school year to make year one a success. One key to a successful school is a strong PTA. The first step in building this valuable partnership is the formation of the Forest Grove PTA and I am reaching out to see if you would be interested in taking a key role. 

On Tuesday, February 9, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. we will hold a virtual orientation meeting.  Here is the link to the meeting.  Our agenda is as follows:

Welcome and Introductions
            PTA formation Tasks
                        Identify the PTA board
                        Obtain Tax ID number

A strong PTA influences our district’s mission to deliver the best academics, social-emotional development, and extracurricular activities for every child at Forest Grove. Finally, please feel free to share the link with other families and individuals who may be interested in launching the PTA at Forest Grove.
