MARCH 13TH - 4 pm Budget Public Hearing

John Adams PTA,

PTAC is looking for people who will speak at the community meeting.  If you are not interested in speaking, please just SHOW UP to support our schools!

Action Item:  Sign Up to Speak!!

Please this is vital.  City Council truly talleys up how many people they hear from on issues like this.

MARCH 13TH - 4pm to close - Budget Public Hearing - Council Chambers 301 King Street.  This is the opportunity to speak and to show up in force!! This is an opportunity to share public testimony on your concerns about not fully funding the budget.  Parents, kids and neighbors - friends - any willing citizen (and any willing teachers!).  Let Council know about your concerns as a taxpayer, voter and someone who cares about the schools.  We really need a large turn out.  This will be important because everyone else comes too.  Don’t let us be drowned out!

Please we need representation from all schools.  Please let me know who is coming.

Sign Up at:  http://survey.alexandriava.gov/s3/City-Council-Speakers-Form
Docket #16-6032

Some tips:

Unless you are President of a Committee (PTA President), you will have three minutes (five if you are a President).
·  Speak frankly
·  Speak clearly
·  Paint a picture of the concern
·  Don’t all tell the same story
·  Talk about the impact to you or your children, etc.
·  Provide written testimony - this can be more in-depth than your statement
·  Offer solutions - inclusion in bond, prioritization with other projects, impact on property values - just examples
If someone says that they can not make the meeting - please ask them to write.  Samples of comments and information are found on our website - www.fullyfundacps.com

There are people planning to show up to talk against funding the schools and we need to balance them out.

Budget Calendar

Attached is the budget calendar with upcoming events http://www.acps.k12.va.us/budgets/op2018/budget-calendar.pdf

This not the last hurdle of the year, but it is one of the most important.

March 22 - S.O.L. Family Night at John Adams 5:30 to 7:30 pm

Science and Math Resources through Jefferson Lab

The PTA is working hard to provide a science fair to the John Adams students (Science and Math Resources through Jefferson Lab) and we are looking for volunteers to assist.  If you are interested please contact Annette Dunzo, adunzo@aol.com.

Francis C. Hammond Visit

The 5th graders will take a field trip on March 13 to Hammond to visit the school.  Hammond is doing open houses on Feb 8th and March 8th  at 9:30 am for parents and students.  The open house tomorrow is a nice way to meet the principal and the team including your child’s counselor who stays with them all through Middle School. It also gives you a chance to hear about the classes they can choose from and how Middle School works.   The children will choose their classes in the Spring of this school year so that their schedule is set before the school year starts in the Fall. The Band and Orchestra students will be assessed by their current teachers to help put them in the right music class.  The Hammond PTA also has done a meet and greet for new parents in the past right as school starts and there is also usually an Electives Fair in the evening in the Spring so you have a few chances to meet everyone before school starts.
