Dear St. Cloud Parents,
Whether you are a first time parent or a seasoned veteran I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself and welcome you to yet another exciting year at St. Cloud Elementary School.
My name is Camilla Roopani and I am the 2015-16 PTA President. I have been involved with the PTA since my daughter (now in 8th grade) began in Kindergarten and I continue to stay committeed as my son Arun enters 4th grade. It has been a great journey and I am excited to now take on this next chapter.
One of the biggest resources of St. Cloud is definitely the PTA (I know I'm a bit biased — but it's true). We have many amazing moms and dads working to better the school environment for all of our kids. From workingon the fundraisers to the book fair, movie night and our hugely successful Diversity Night and basket raffle — it could not be done without parent volunteers — parents like YOU!
Yes we need you if we want to continue the tradition of great programs at our school.
But why should you volunteer your time — what has the PTA done for you lately? Well it's quite simple really — your child will love seeing you at school and it truly makes a difference in the quality of your child's experience in elementary school. Did you know that many of the assemblies at school are paid for by the PTA? Last year alone, the children enjoyed learning about writing from author Gregory Mone, watching the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra presentation of "Somthing for Everyone", learning about Shakespeare from Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey, and manipulation marionettes with The Tanglewood Marionettes during a stunning puppet play based on Chinese foklore. All of this was planned and paid for by the PTA. And the $4000 sound system installed for these performances and other everyday school events? The PTA bought that as well.
