The countdown begins…school starts soon! As a reminder, all Crocker Farm guardians and parents are part of the PGO.  After three years as co-chair/chair of the PGO, Tracy Zafian is stepping down.  Jessica Sidman and Hallie Hughes have agreed to co-chair the PGO this year, with Farah Ameen serving on the executive committee.  We're hoping that we can get a big group so that we can do a lot this year without too much work falling on any one shoulder. We all want to do what we can for the kids and staff, and we want to it as easy as possible for people to do what they can for the PGO. We are hoping to increase member involvement this year.  Many volunteer opportunities exist, lots of which can be done outside of working hours and from home. We are holding a meeting this Thursday, August 11 at 7:30 located at 30 Orchard Street in Amherst. Light refreshments will be served. Our agenda is as follows:

1) PGO structure/roles
2) Back to School Gathering
3) Events that the PGO might run for the year and how to divvy them up
4) Finances and Teacher Stipends
5) Fundraising
6) Volunteer recruitment

Many of you are traveling or otherwise busy, so if you can't make this meeting, please don't worry -- we'll get minutes out and will be in touch.

Please let us know if you can come, and please feel free to forward this along to spread the word to anyone who is interested

Hope to see you Thursday!
