A Message from your PTA President
Dear Parents, Staff, and Friends,
The Covington Elementary PTA would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our newcomers, and a welcome back to our returning parents, staff, friends and PTA members. We look forward to all of the exciting events CES and the CES PTA have planned this year.
***The PTA is the world’s largest & oldest organization working on behalf of children, youth, and families.***
The Covington Elementary PTA had a productive year last year. Here are a few things we accomplished, we raised money to purchase the following; AR testing computer program, just say no t-shirts, Art Fest, calendars for all staff, transportation grants to school to cover overages on field trips, 3rd grade trip to Baton Rouge. and Pre-K field trip. We sponsor lunches for the teachers during the year to show our appreciation for their dedication to our children, provided parent/teacher folders to every class, fishing t-shirts, underwear and socks for the office. Also we have purchased a slide for the Pre-K and the X-WAVE for our children which are located on the big playground. We paid for all of these things with our portion of the dues we collect from members, donations to the CES PTA, Box Tops, Labels for Education, and fundraisers like Pennies for Progress and the Raffle. None of which would have been possible without our supporters.
***Did you know membership dues & additional donations are tax deductible?***
This year we are going to show the District PTA and State PTA that Covington Elementary is striving to be bigger and better than ever. Anyone can join parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends and businesses. Remember corporate members count for 5 to 20 memberships depending on the level, so ask your employer or business owners you know to join. You will find a corporate membership form in the back of this packet and also in the front office or you may go to our website www.covingtonpta.com and print one out.
Most people that don’t join the PTA don’t join because they were ***NEVER ASKED!!!***
We are currently looking for people to help out. If you or someone you know might be interested please email me or call me for details. I look forward to a great year together, see you soon!
Thank you for your continued support,
CES PTA President
