As we talk about membership this month, you may wonder why we need to raise money. After all, what does the PTA actually do? (Besides the community building activities we’ve covered already, of course!)
One of the foundations of our work is the series of programs we sponsor throughout the year. The programs strive to be enriching additions to the amazing education provided by our RES team, and a signature program of our PTA is the International Fest!
This amazing event, open to the wider community, lets RES kids share and experience the wider world. Kids get to take a passport through the countries represented, trying new foods and crafts at each table. Multi-cultural performances are held with kids singing songs from around the world and traditional dances. Our amazing PTA volunteers decorate the hallways to take all who attend on an international journey while right here in Redding! It’s an amazing experience for kids and grown-ups alike.
We are already planning the 2018 International Fair (mark your calendars for March 10!) and your PTA membership will support that work. Have you already signed up for your 2017-2018 PTA membership? A reminder that all GOLD MEMBERSHIPS received before September 30 can get our new-this-year RES PTA tote bag as a special thank you. Sign up here using the code REDDINGELEMENTARY and help us provide these great programs to our RES kids. If membership isn’t for you, consider signing up to receive our emails and updates using the same link.
