A Message from PTA President It is such a wonderful time of year! With the New Year, there are so many things that we look forward
to that it is easy to be filled with hope and gratitude. Some are looking forward to the Super Bowl,
others are looking forward to the week-long vacation next month, while still others are glad that it isn’t
freezing as much each morning. No matter where our gratitude lies, we should show our gratitude daily
because it is gratitude that shows us that what we have is enough.
I would like to take this time to give you a quick synopsis of the “Winter Wonderland” project that the
National PTA promoted for the Sandy Hook (CT) elementary school. As you may recall, the
Connecticut PTSA wanted to welcome the students of Sandy Hook back to their new classrooms with a
Winter Wonderland scene. They asked anyone who would like to, to make snowflakes and send them
to their school. The result? Trucks full of snowflakes! Their front lobby is full. The post office has
delivered truck loads to their door. More come in each day. The snowflakes were hand cut, handpainted, hand-drawn and were big, little and poster-sized. In addition to snowflakes, a lot of boxes came
with handmade sympathy cards, some donated football cards, while some had piggy bank money
included. All of this was done in an effort to offset their tragic loss. What an outstanding display of
human kindness. Thank you to any of our Sierra Oaks families who took the time to create and send
snowflakes to these wonderful children, teachers and administrators. They have said that they feel
immensely blessed.
It is opportunities like these that remind us of why the PTA is so important. The entire mission of the
PTA is to foster the educational growth of the children in our community and to bring families and
community together in causes of support and giving. Everything that we do, as a PTA, is for the students
at Sierra Oaks. And lucky you, you have upcoming opportunities to join in!
First, if you are not already a member of the PTA, please consider joining. It is only $10.00 per family
for the entire school year. Second, you can also donate on a recurring basis a simple dollar amount that
meets your budget. You can visit our website at www.sierraoakspta.org for a quick and easy application
and payment method.
Finally, join us at some of our awesome upcoming events, including Father/Daughter Dance coming up on
February 8th and A Tuscan Evening – An Auction Event with delicious Italian food on March 9th . Don’t
be left out, come and join the fun!
