Dear Inman Families,
We are excited to welcome you to the 2016-17 school year. Inman Middle School has a longstanding history of strong academic success with a wonderful faculty and staff, outstanding students, and involved parents.
This year, our attendance is estimated at 1,100. As you may know, Inman has lost Title 1 funding, so this year’s PTA operating budget will need your generous support. Fundraising is critical, given the number of students and the demographics we serve. Our needs are many and the Inman PTA is an important resource, providing funding and support for teachers and students throughout the school year.
In lieu of multiple, small fundraisers (that are taxing to families and volunteers), the PTA is asking for a one-time donation (Annual Fund Letter 2016-17) of financial support. If every family gives $100 per child to our Annual Fund, we will have enough money to fund our programs with no other major fundraising events this year. We understand that not everyone can give at that level, but any gift will go a long way to helping our students and teachers. All donations are tax deductible. Because funding needs are urgent to planning our school year, our goal is have 100% participation by September 30th.
Along with financial support, we need your time! Volunteering in middle school is welcome and necessary. Great schools need great volunteers, so please email email@example.com and we’ll find the ideal fit for you.
On a social note, the PTA hosts some terrific events through the year. In the fall, we have the infamous BBQ & Blues in John Howell Park and December is our annual Frosty 5K — the coolest run in town.
We look forward to working with you to make 2016-17 the best year yet!
All our best,
Cathy Lepik & Teresa Tinney
