Contact Parent Meeting Details – 2016

Mars Area Elementary PTO will offer a Contact Parent Meeting on September 15, 2016 in the PTO room (Centennial School Building – Room 218). The meeting will run from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.  During each hour we will draw names for a different grade, starting with 4th grade and working backwards.  The new rules and responsibilities will be reviewed at 9:00 a.m. and at noon. All meetings will be held in the new PTO Room (218) at Mars Area Centennial School. Parents planning to attend one of the above listed meetings must submit to a scan of their driver’s license. Attendees must also present photo ID upon entry to the Mars Area Centennial School.

You must have your driver’s license scanned to attend this meeting!

Fourth Grade – 9AM
Third Grade – 10AM
Second Grade – 11AM
First Grade – 12PM
Kindergarten – 1PM

Contact Parents plan and attend class parties; coordinate volunteers to aid teachers in the classroom; and act as a liaison between teachers and parents for grades Kindergarten through 4th grade.

There are no Contact Parents selected for grades 5 and 6, as classroom parties are eliminated. Instead, the PTO Centennial Building Chair responsible for the Social Committee plans and coordinates three grade-level parties to be held in the gym/cafeteria: Fall Festival, Holiday Party, Spring Party. Each grade celebrates for one hour. The parties are run with the help of parent volunteers, who are solicited by the PTO in the weeks prior to each celebration.

If you cannot attend the meeting and are interested in being a contact parent, please provide the following information before Tuesday, September 13, 2016 at 5PM:
