Welcome from the PTA President

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year at Stone Mill Elementary School!

As I begin my role as president of the PTA, I am nervous about taking on such a big task, yet proud and excited to be leading such a strong PTA; and committed support our kids, staff and school. My earnest appeal to each one of you is to join the PTA and help us remain connected during these unprecedented times.  I look forward to meeting new families and seeing familiar faces again!

While the start of this school year is unique, I am confident that together, with our school and parent community, we will be able to make this a great school experience for our children. Even during this COVID-19 pandemic that we are experiencing, Stone Mill ES PTA is eager to provide many of the same wonderful events for this school year as we have offered in the past either virtually or in person as possible. Here are a few Back to School notes I would like to share with you.

Visit the SMES PTA website at www.stonemillespta.org for updates, PTA contacts, a calendar of events, membership sign-up, volunteer opportunities, and more. We invite you to join Stone Mill ES PTA because increasing our membership, even by one, makes it possible to:

  • Provide school and community support needs identified by the school administrators and teachers.

  • Convene parents, teachers, staff, and children, building community and understanding through in-person or virtual events, like: Bingo Night, Movie Night, Stone Mill Scientist, and Spelling Bee.

  • Sponsor Teacher Appreciation activities throughout the year to demonstrate our gratitude for our teachers and administrators.

Thank you to Dr. Williams, teachers, staff, PTA Board, and countless event chairs and parent volunteers that work together to make Stone Mill a school community a generous, caring and engaging community!

PTA always can use more volunteers so please take the time to look through events and opportunity to engage with us! You, the school, and your kids will cherish it! Together, we will all be able to make this unprecedented and unique school year a rewarding and memorable one for our children.

Please feel free to email me with questions/comments/suggestions at president.smespta@gmail.com.  I would love to hear from you!

See you at Stone Mill!
