Letter from the Presidents

With the school year winding down we wanted to take a moment to thank the Ben Rush community for a wonderful year.  As our first year as Presidents we have learned a lot and confirmed our belief that Ben Rush is a very special school.  We are fortunate to work every day with such a fantastic group of parents, volunteers, teachers and staff – not to mention the Ben Rush PTA Board.  We would be hard pressed to find a more loyal, dedicated group of people.

It was an emotional and fun filled week at Ben Rush as the PTA supported the celebration of Mr. Stolz’s retirement with an Open House. We provided volunteer support and videographer for the amazing Talent Show (63 acts!).  Followed by the PTA sponsored Ice Cream Social in the play area for over 200 kids, parents and teachers.
In terms of business, we hosted our final General Meeting of the Year on June 5th following the Open House.  We approved the 2014-2015 Budget, we shared our 2014 Annual Report and we had the opportunity to meet our new Principal Lucy Davies.
The year is not over yet and next week activities include Field Day and the Volunteer Coffee.   See details for these events below, and please be sure to join us for both if your schedule permits.
Thank you all for your generous support to help make our first year in the new school a runaway success!
