UPDATE: Ward PTA Carnations Sales – 2/11/15

DOUBLE WOW!  Ward families you have out done yourself!!  We had almost 250 carnations sold TODAY!!  This has been such a popular event that we will hold carnations sales again tomorrow morning.  This will be the last day as we will prepare the orders tomorrow night for Friday delivery.  Thank you again for supporting Ward PTA!  I believe the students are very excited about giving their flowers for their friends, teachers and loved ones!

Feedback concerning the hiring of Ward’s 2015-2016 Principal

Feedback concerning the hiring of Ward’s 2015-2016 Principal.  The date for these meetings is Tuesday, February 10th.

PTA Board Forum (3:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.)

PTA Board members are invited to attend and provide feedback on what characteristics they would like to see in the new principal.  I believe it would be helpful if PTA Board members sent out a notice to parents (or you may do so on their behalf with consultation) to solicit feedback so that they can more completely capture the feedback of the entire community.

ANY faculty or community member that you have who is unable to attend the forums is welcome to communicate with me via email regarding their input on what characteristics they would like to see in the new principal.  You are welcome to distribute my email as part of the notice to your faculty and PTA Board to facilitate this process.

Thank you for your assistance in ensuring that the communities that you have nurtured so well have the best opportunity to grow and thrive to continue your legacy.  Should you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.

Deputy Superintendent for Instruction
