We have tried to make Haviland our home . We participate in events & this helps build relationships w/ our classroom teacher, principal, special teachers & other staff/future teachers. This year, PTA organized the following: DQ make your own sundae and raffle tickets for a cake, Friday Night movies, breakfast w/ Santa, Fun Run, talent show, Winter luau & cookie dough, a big $ maker. PTAs are challenged to get families involved. To help, they invite 1-2 classrooms to present per montly meeting. Some classrooms have stronger participation than others. Why? I don t know. The teacher, the parents, the children, the day of the week? The PTA for the past 2 years has been excellent. With terms ending, next year will be a new PTA. We will support them, too. We also participated in outreach events such as helping families w needs at holiday time, penny wars for charity & food drives. Overall, we have been happy w/ our experience w/ teachers. There are always a few students that appear to be a challenge (observed on field trips), but isn't that always the way? We re sure it can be challenging for a teacher to give natural consequences to students.
