2021-22 Welcome Letter from the Bowditch PTSA President
August 12, 2021
Welcome back Buccaneers!
We would like to extend a warm welcome to all our Buccaneers as we look forward to starting the 2021-22 school year in person. To our 6th graders and new 7th and 8th graders - an especially warm welcome to our Bowditch family. The start of this school year brings many feelings - excitement as the students can finally be back on campus and seeing their teachers and peers in person, nervousness for starting a new school or for being at school for the first time and maybe some trepidation for how the year might unfold.
The PTSA is committed to bringing students an enriching, fun and safe return to school. Please help us do this through:
MEMBERSHIP - Our collective voice carries more weight. We were 300 strong last year, including parents, staff and many students! This year, the SMFC PTA Council has launched a membership challenge. Help us ‘GO for the GOLD’ with 50% of families becoming members and having a voice in the PTSA. Bowditch PTSA Membership also includes membership to California PTA and National PTA.
FUNDING - Your donations towards school programs supports our students and teachers.
Student Clubs, Student Council
Student Rewards Programs, Reflections, Spelling Bee
Electives, Assemblies, Performing Arts, Sports, Bowditch Library
Classroom supplies, Agendas, Notebooks
Teacher Support, Staff funding, Staff Appreciation, Founders Day
Technology/Capital Improvement support for the school
We ask for a donation of $225/student but any amount is appreciated. You can submit this combined PTSA DONATION/MEMBERSHIP FORM during student orientation or drop it off anytime at the Bowditch office. You can also become a PTSA MEMBER and DONATE online here anytime throughout the school year. Don’t forget to double your donation by using company match programs through your employer.
You can also sign up with Amazon Smile to support the school through your purchases.
COMMUNICATION - We work diligently to keep families informed. Please:
VOLUNTEERISM - There are many ways to get involved from joining the executive board, serving on a committee, or helping at an event. Please reach out to us at Questions@BowditchPTSA.org if you would like to hear more.
By working together as a team, supporting each other and remaining flexible in our approach, we can make this year a great experience for all families.
At Your Service,
Bowditch PTSA President, 2021-22
