Dear Watson Families:
I would like to welcome everyone as we begin another exciting school year at Watson. I would also like to invite everyone to get involved and become members of our Parent Teacher Organization- U.N.I.T.E. – Unite Now In Today’s Education. U.N.I.T.E. strives to create a positive atmosphere in which parents and teachers support one another in enhancing our children’s educational experiences.
U.N.I.T.E. assists with extracurricular activities and is involved in fundraising projects with the proceeds going towards some of the “extras” that we might not otherwise have. We will be raising funds this year through our Fall Fundraiser, Election Day Bake Sale, and the Scholarship Garage Sale and Blood Drives. Some of the proceeds will be used to bring “Cosi on Wheels” to our school, provide an ice cream truck during the last week of school, provide the Last Day of School Carnival, and much more. We send all of our fourth graders off with a pizza party and gift from U.N.I.T.E. We also have the Seth Brown Scholarship Award that goes to a Watson student graduating from Perry High School.
U.N.I.T.E. also has many great events planned to build our school spirit and connect our Watson families to our fantastic staff! There are many opportunities for our families to interact with each other and build strong relationships and a strong Watson community. Our wonderful family events are the Tailgate Party, Glow Night, Mother/Son Game Night, Father/Daughter Dance, and Bingo.
These events for our children can’t happen without the support and immense help of you, the volunteers. Many different levels of involvement are offered, and all are appreciated! Please “U.N.I.T.E.” with us and support our projects for the benefit of our children. Consider attending the monthly U.N.I.T.E. meeting. Dates and times of all meetings are listed in the monthly school newsletter. Our first meeting will be Thursday, September 13th at 6:00 pm.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact anyone on the U.N.I.T.E. board. Our e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.We welcome your input! The U.N.I.T.E. executive board for the 2012-2013 school year consists of President, Angie Hill; Vice President, Joe Babics; Secretary, Amy Badertscher; Treasurer, Jodi Gerber; Nominating Chair, Sharen Lindberg; Scholarship Chair, Diane Knutty.
We look forward to another great year at Watson!
Angie Hill, President
