JOIN CLINTON SCHOOL'S PTSA!!

Heck Yeah, I wanna join!

2018-19 is in full swing and we've had so much going on! We signed 31 members into the association during the back to school open house on August 29th!  During this event, we introduced our new spirit wear design and we're super excited about it!  

The week of September 17th we held our second annual Penny Wars!  The competition wasn't as fierce as last year, so we many many many pennies and not so many negative points!  We raised almost $400 toward our Cougar Kingdom fund which will allow the school to keep up with maintenance on our playground equipment! 

Through October and the first part of November we are actively out advocating for the passage of the proposed School Bond on the Nov 6 ballot.  If you aren't already registered to vote - DO IT!  We have Vote Yes! signs available to anyone who may want one!  You can email us at ptsa@clintoncougars.com or contact us on Facebook facebook.com/clintoncougarsptsa.  What bond you may ask?!  You can read more about it at www.clintoncougars.com/bond.

On Sept 27th we held our first ever Pops n' Pizza event and what a success it was!  We had close to 30 father figures and their kiddos in attendance to play games, enjoy dinner together, meet other "pops" and introduce our new volunteer program, Cougar Watch!  Cougar Watch is a volunteer program we are starting in October that gives father figures the opportunity to volunteer at the school and bring positive male role models into Clinton School.  It is loosely based on the national program, Watch Dogs.  Opportunities include volunteering in individual classrooms to help put together homework packets, help with reading or math, small group testing; Cougars Pops may also volunteer in the library, on the playground, in the lunch room or during specials - gym, music, art, etc.  We had 12 pops sign up for days with a few others committing to at a later date!  It's a win in our book!

So if you've read this far, you're definitely considering how cool it would be to participate in all of this fun, right?!  You know you want to join Clinton PTSA!  BUT....what exactly happens when you become a PTSA member?  Well, you are asked to pay a nominal membership fee of $15, $6 of which goes toward keeping the Clinton PTSA a state and nationally registered PTA.  $9 of this membership fee goes toward funding events throughout the year, such as those discussed above and below!  We ask our members to volunteer for at least one event in the Fall and one event in the Spring (that's ONLY TWO events all year!).  This can be as simple as arranging delivery of seeds for our Earth Day recognition or decorating a door for Teacher Appreciation week.  Volunteering could also be as dedicated as playing a mummy in the haunted house or selling flowers for Valentine's day.  You could also decide to chair one event and that's your "thing" for the year (i.e. Easter Egg hunt, Halloween Carnival or something NEW!).  No matter if volunteers work several events or just one, we do ask our members to come to monthly meetings to share ideas for new events, improvements or community events.  Our meetings are also an opportunity to share your concerns and suggestions for improvements!

PTSA is an excellent way to meet and socialize with other Clinton School parents (new adult friends!), become involved in student experiences, provide outreach to our community as well as work with teachers, staff and the school board.  It is also a venue to help influence and advocate for the learning experience at our school and share your voice!
We would love to have YOU on the PTSA!  Please contact Kayla if you have any interest or questions about becoming a member - ptsa@clintoncougars.com

 

HECK YEAH! I want to join!
 
I'll think about it being an active member, but I'd like to donate toward events
