Dear Moss Haven Families,
Welcome to Moss Haven Elementary!
For those of you who are new to our school, I’m excited to extend a special welcome to you. For all of you coming back, welcome back! I’m so glad you all are here. As we embark upon a new school year, all of us have the unique opportunity to connect and engage in new ways. We are fortunate to be standing on the shoulders of and benefiting from 40+ years of dedicated people - students, parents, teachers and staff members - who have laid the foundation for our school, as we head into the 2018-2019 school year. This momentum and hard work propels us forward, into a year that brings a lot of exciting changes and opportunities.
Given our many opportunities to make a significant impact on Moss Haven this year, our PTA theme is, “Listen, Learn and Lead.” My goals for all of us are to listen to each other, learn from each other and to lead together. Everyone comes from a different perspective, we have all learned different things along the way and therefore, I think we have a special opportunity to create connections amongst ourselves that will continue to make our school stronger, for our work together.
We know from many years of participation through the Texas PTA that active and engaged families are the key to success for students; and our PTA’s goal is to help provide the tools to make every student's potential a reality. We aim to build community through programs that promote student achievement, creativity and inclusiveness.
Let’s talk about inclusiveness for a minute. To me, that truly means everyone. Not just if you have the time to fill a formal volunteer position on the PTA board. My hope is that you’ll find a way to engage that works for you, for your student(s) and for your family. Maybe it’s attending a PTA meeting for the first time, it could be contributing cookies to a MHE team appreciation event, or perhaps it’s even an offer to contribute your time and talents to be a part of a standing committee when your time permits. Keep your eye on the Mustang Memo, Facebook page and messages through your classroom parents for opportunities that continually pop up. In any case, I encourage you to plug in, as I believe that you have something unique and important to add to the equation.
In the wise words of the Texas PTA: Back the future - be informed. Be active. Be your kid’s biggest fan. Be PTA. I’m looking forward to a great year with all of you!
MHE PTA President, 2018-2019
