Dear Inman Families,
We are excited to welcome you to the 2017-18 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, we are especially excited to welcome our new principal, Dr. Kevin Maxwell and to launch our inaugural year as a PTO. We look forward to being able to support our teachers, students and staff in new, more beneficial ways.
As our school continues to grow, the PTO 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 PTO is an important resource, providing funding and support for teachers and students throughout the school year. In this packet you’ll find a sheet that highlights many of the initiatives we sponsored last year as a PTA — this year
we hope accomplish even more!
In lieu of multiple, small fundraisers (that are taxing to families and volunteers), the PTO is suggesting a one-time donation 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. Of course, we understand that not everyone can give at that level, but any gift will go a long way to helping our students and teachers. Any donation of $10 or more includes an individual PTO membership, $20 or more includes a family membership. All donations are tax deductible. Because funding needs are urgent to planning our school year, our goal is have 100% participation by September 30th.
The PTO is a volunteer membership organization and we welcome you to join us. Volunteering in middle school is welcome and necessary. Great schools need great volunteers, so please email us and we’ll find the ideal fit
On a social note, the PTA hosts some terrific events through the year. In the fall, we have the annual BBQ & Blues in John Howell Park, December is our annual Frosty 5K — the coolest run in town and in the spring we will host Eagles Knight Out, our joint social fundraiser with Grady High School.
We look forward to working with you to make 2017-18 the best year yet!
All our best,
Cathy Lepik & Teresa Tinney
