Hello Saber Nation!
My name is Marcie Klein and I am serving as PTO President for the upcoming 2018-2019 school year. I am excited to welcome the new families to our school community and to welcome back those of you who are already a part of it.
This will be my 5th year as a parent of an SMS student and my second time serving as PTO President. I also served in 2013-14 when my son was in 8th grade and who is now a college freshman! My daughter is an 8th grader this year.
As always, the PTO Board has some great events planned, and we are so appreciative of the amazing families who volunteer and contribute. It is only through your support that we are able to offer fun activities for our students, purchase much needed items for our school, and support our administration, teachers and athletic department.
Once again, we have partnered with Membership Toolkit for our Sunset Middle PTO website. Please check the website often for the latest information available including a calendar of events, volunteer opportunities, spirit wear store and much more. We hope that this website will be a valuable resource for you throughout the school year and make obtaining information about SMS and PTO simple and easy.
In the year ahead, as Sunset Middle School poises itself for impending growth, my goal is to help create an even greater sense of community between the parents, faculty and students. After all, we all have the same goal — to provide our kids a learning environment where they feel safe, supported and encouraged to learn and develop their own individual strengths, both academically and socially.
This isn’t always easy in middle school. So should you come upon any “bumps” in your middle school road, I encourage you to reach out to the administration, teachers or PTO board for support. We are all here to help ensure you and your children the best experience possible. We also welcome any feedback, ideas and suggestions, so please feel free to contact us at any time. Our email is firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to hear from you.
Again, thanks so much for your support and we look forward to a great year ahead. Go Sabers!
