Fall Newsletter from the PTA President

Dear SMES Community,

As the newly elected PTA President, I'm thrilled to greet all of you at the start of what promises to be an exciting and memorable school year!  

First and foremost, I would be remiss if I didn't acknowledge the incredible work of our outgoing PTA President, Charlotte Lukas. Under her leadership, our PTA reached new heights, paving the way for growth, community engagement, and abundant enthusiasm. Charlotte, from all of us: a heartfelt thank you. Your dedication and tireless efforts have not gone unnoticed, and your legacy continues to inspire us.

With the days getting shorter and nights getting cooler, I can't help but feel a bubbling excitement for the Fall and the beginning of school. We have a rich calendar of events lined up that will not only engage our children but also foster a deeper connection amongst parents, teachers, and the community.  Our aim is to create moments that our children and families will cherish and remember for years to come.

Your involvement is what fuels the PTA's success, and together, we can make this year a phenomenal one. Whether you're a returning member or new to the PTA family, your voice, ideas, and energy are invaluable. Let's join hands, share our insights, and work collaboratively to support our school's mission and the holistic development of every child.  Annual membership and volunteering is how we serve our community.   Please, please renew or sign up at: https://stonemillpta.membershiptoolkit.com
