PTA Updates: Construction, LEAP, Volunteer Appreciation and Elections, Talent Show

Hello Buri Buri Families!

We have several important upcoming events:

Construction Delays
We have learned that construction will be discussed at the School Board meeting this Thursday 3/24 at Baden High School 825 Southwood Dr. SSF. The meeting starts at 7pm but construction is the last thing on the agenda so it will probably be after 9pm when they get to it. We need parent support at the meeting. If you are concerned about the construction delays, please join us. Leave a comment or send us an email with your phone number if you would like a text when we are getting close to the construction topics if you don't want to be there for the entire meeting.

The flyer for our last session of LEAP was sent home with students today. We will have the following classes:
Mondays: Circus Arts
Tuesdays: Hip Hop Dance
Wednesdays: Chef it up! Cooking Class
Thursdays: Minecraft
Fridays: Academic Chess
Registration will be Tuesday April 5th at 12 noon here at
Classes begin the week of April 12th and run for 6 weeks. Classes are open to 1st through 5th grade students.

PTA Volunteer Appreciation Dinner and Elections
We will have our next PTA meeting on Thursday April 7th at 6:30pm. We are having a volunteer appreciation spaghetti dinner and honoring staff and teachers. If you volunteered at any event, in the classroom, driven on a field trip or participated with your student in fundraising, volunteered as a room rep, you are invited! Kids are welcome too :) Please RSVP here so we can plan to have enough food.

We will also have our PTA Elections for the next school year on April 7th at our PTA meeting. We are always looking for new voices in our PTA. Many of the current PTA board members have older students so we need those with younger students to join. People have already volunteered for the following jobs: secretary, treasurer, financial secretary, auditor, newsletter, room rep coordinator, membership, Construction committee coordinator, hospitality, LEAP coordinator, Reflections & Talent Show chair, Science Night Chair.
Some of the possible positions we'd like to fill: President, Vice President, Someone Special Dance Coordinator, Teacher Appreciation Week Coordinator, Week of Code Coordinator, End of year picnic coordinator, Volunteer coordinator, Fundraising chair, Social media chair, Parliamentarian. Please email the PTA if you would like to take one of these jobs. You will have a team to support you so don't worry if you haven't been in the PTA before. Thanks!

Talent Show and Auction
Mark your calendars for our awesome Talent Show and Auction on Friday April 22 from 6:30-8:30pm The auction will be open before school for bidding. PTA will provide coffee and treats in the MUR at 8:15-8:45 so you can preview or bid on items. All of the items for auction were donated so 100% of the money you spend will go directly to the school. Just a few of the amazing items for bid are: Disneyland parkhopper tickets, dinners at local restaurants, Police and Fire department tours, gift baskets and more!
