PTSA Question of the Week

PTSA would like to introduce a question of the week section in each of our regularly scheduled Enews editions. Questions that will be published are ones that our organization gets frequently or ones that offer added insight and info to our families about how our organization works. Please feel free to submit questions that you would like to see featured, to info@audubonptsa.org with the title "Question of the week submission". Here is this week's question:

Question: Why should I support Audubon PTSA? How does PTSA benefit my child(ren)? 

Answer: Here are just a few ways that Audubon PTSA benefits your child.

PTSA pays for your child’s IXL subscription.

PTSA pays for the art supplies that your child uses during art class. PTSA also provides volunteers to teach those art classes.

PTSA subsidizes the cost of field trips. Parents are paying anywhere from $1,000 to $4,500 less per grade for their children to enjoy field trips like the toy maker workshop, Pioneer Farms, Camp Waskowitz, etc.

PTSA pays for emergency preparedness supplies like food, water, blankets, flashlights, etc. for every child.

PTSA spends $1,000 on new books for our library.

PTSA pays for the Science Fair.

PTSA grants $300 to each classroom to help teachers cover the cost of classroom supplies.

PTSA runs and pays for events like International Night, Math Puzzle Hunt, the Back to School BBQ, etc.

PTSA provides services like the Extended Classes program, Reflections art competition, school photos, parent parking lot helpers, etc.

Audubon PTSA needs you

Audubon PTSA is a completely volunteer run organization. Involvement by the whole school community is how all Audubon PTSA activities and enrichment happens. Audubon PTSA has an Executive Board who are elected volunteers who have oversight and accountability for programs and the budget. However, every service, event and experience, relies on our community of volunteers. If you have questions about any of the positions listed below, please contact Co-Presidents Lilach Geppert-Shapira and Yumna Green. We are currently looking for volunteers to fill the following open positions (no experience needed and training will be provided):

Co-chair for Extended Classes

Co-chair for the Enews 

Chair for Math Puzzle Hunt

Chair for Kindergarten Registration

Special Needs Liaison chair

Advocacy chair

Vice-President(s) of Events

Vice-President(s) of Fundraising

Vice-President of Student Enrichment

Traffic Tips for our Parking Lot 

Thank you very much to our volunteer parking lot helpers that help to direct traffic in the Audubon parking lot every morning and afternoon. Parents, please follow the directions of our parking lot helpers. They are volunteering their time to ensure the safety of all Audubon students. Here are a few handy hints to ensure the parking lot is a safe zone for students:

  1. Obey the posted speed limit and yield to pedestrians in crosswalks.
  2. Pull all the way forward before allowing your student to exit the car.
  3. If you student needs help to unbuckle, open/close the car door, or needs to unload a bulky project/package, please do not use the drop-off lane. Park and help them as needed.
  4. After your student exits the car, please move out of the drop-off lane as quickly as possible so that the cars behind you can pull all the way forward before dropping off their students. The same applies in the afternoon when picking up your student.
  5. Please be respectful and obey the directions of the parking lot volunteers.
  6. When parking in the Audubon parking lot, please do not block fire lanes.

If you would like to help direct traffic in the morning or afternoon (most parking lot helpers commit to just 15 minutes once a week) please contact Julie Conley
