Welcome from the Bolton Academy PTA
Dear Bolton Academy Parents, Guardians, Teachers, Staff, and Community Members:
Welcome back to what will be a great year at Bolton Academy. We are excited about the 2016-2017 school year and the many opportunities to further enhance Bolton Academy as a “focused learning environment for pre‑kindergarten through fifth grade students.” One of the goals of Bolton Academy’s PTA is to continue to provide a forum for collaboration between the administration, teaching staff, families, and the community in order to support students’ success and improve the quality of life in our school.
We plan to achieve this goal by continuing to provide support for quality enrichment programs and social activities, as well as updated equipment and teaching materials. As such, we are planning many programs, events, and activities for the year and we are asking for your help so that we may effectively execute these programs. As you continue to support our students, fellow parents, and teachers, we are also asking that you further partner with us to achieve these goals.
In this packet you will find general information and policies about the school, as well information on making the most of your child’s Bolton experience by joining the PTA. You’ll find a copy of the calendar and you will also receive your invitation to the first event of the school year- Bolton’s Back to School Membership Drive Picnic. We hope you find the information in this packet insightful and that this is your child’s best year at Bolton!
