Letter from John Scarso – PS 373R PTA President

To Everyone in the PS 373R Family.                                                            July 12, 2009

As another school year ends I along with my executive board wish to thank everyone for allowing us to serve another year as your PTA officers. I will be continuing to serve as your President along with Dawn Port as 1st Vice President, Laura Strohm as 2nd Vice President, Jennifer Walsh as Treasurer, and Perian Wise as Secretary. We had many successes this year, including the Holiday Fair, the cookie dough sale, the plant sale, and the Spring Carnival. We sponsored a back pack give away and donated to the Thanksgiving turkey drive. We, along with the new school administration staff, learned under fire and we all emerged better than ever.

We have already begun to plan for the coming year. We are meeting with our elected officials to discuss important issues regarding our school, started formulating our upcoming budget, and we have started planning the events in the upcoming year. Look for more info coming regarding our pot luck dinner in September. We are fortunate to have Principal Harnett at the helm of our school with the dedication of her Assistant Principals and let us not forget Kirsten Rorke, who has been indispensable to everyone this past year.

Due to popular demand, the upcoming PTA meetings will be in the evening and the schedule will be announced in August. We hope to see more parents get involved this year anyone wishing to get involved is invited to call me at 718-986-8856.

We are continuing to be faced with many extremely difficult challenges in the upcoming year, including overcrowding and DOE budget cuts. We need more parental involvement so please come out and help. It is our kids at stake. We continue to look forward to an exciting year ahead. Thank you.

John Scarso

President PTA 373R 2009-2010
