Welcome Letter from Wendy Handy, PTA President

As the PTA President, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all of you to the 2013-14 school year at Bessie Owens Intermediate. The purpose of the PTA is to support the faculty, staff, parents, and most especially our students at Owens Intermediate. The PTA offers one of the strongest voices in the educational process that directly supports our children and school. I am excited to work with you, the parents, in developing the details for a very productive and exciting year for all our students.

In order to be successful, we know that the support and involvement of the parents of our students, the faculty and staff at Owens Intermediate, as well as the business leaders in our community will be of utmost importance. One way to show your support will be to participate in the numerous events and programs that we have planned throughout the year. Your participation might be that of a committee member, volunteer, or merely as an attendee. Whatever level of participation you select, your time and involvement will certainly be appreciated.

You also can show your support by providing us your comments regarding our PTA efforts or suggestions or ideas for other potential PTA initiatives. To facilitate this, please feel free to contact me directly.

We in the PTA believe that it is of ultimate importance that we do everything we can to enhance the learning environment of our children as they truly are our future. It will take all of us working together to ensure that this happens.

We are still in need of parents to serve on the board. If you are willing to donate your time and talent to a position I encourage you to become a member of the PTA board and help make this a great year for our kids!

I look forward to working with you this year.

Thank you,

Wendy Handy
Owens Intermediate PTA President
