MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENTS
Hello Covert Families!
Welcome to our 2022-2023 school year! Covert School is a really special place and we hope you will take the opportunity to be involved in the many wonderful activities that are scheduled throughout the year. For those of you who are new to the school, please do not hesitate to contact us if we can help answer questions or help you get acclimated to our school.
We invite and encourage you all to get involved with the Covert PTA! The PTA is responsible for funding and organizing many programs and activities that are an important part of Covert School. We organize the first day of school lawn signs for Kindergarten, the school directory, trip shirts, school pictures, book fairs, the FUNd run, PARP (Parents As Reading Partners), the school-wide Thanksgiving Feast, Field Day and many cultural programs and assemblies that your children will enjoy throughout the year. We are constantly coming up with new, fun ideas for the kids and our families!
We have a lot of creative ideas for this year, but we need YOUR fundraising support to make it all happen! We fundraise in many different ways that you’ll see throughout the year. Every penny you spend, whether it be buying pizza kits or popcorn, stocking up on Covert gear, or attending our social functions (like our super-fun Movie Night, Adult Night Out, and Family Game Night) goes right back to the school and brings more arts programming to our children. We will be working hard to put as much FUN in our FUNdraising as possible, so we hope you’ll join us with each endeavor.
Joining the PTA is also a great way to be "in the know" about school events and to meet other parents. We are a fun and collaborative group and we welcome you to join us at our monthly meetings. Whether on zoom or in person, our meetings are always very informative, and a great way to learn new names and faces!
Joining the PTA is quick and easy. See the attached files with information regarding this year's Membership Drive Theme. You will receive a physical membership form in your child’s backpack.
