DEAR PARENTS, STAFF, AND STUDENTS:
Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! What a whirlwind it’s been, I am so glad to be back on campus and finding a sense of normalcy for our school and for our families! This year we’ve adopted the phrase “better together”. You’ll see it on our logo and the spirit wear shirts for this school year as well as a few other places. We know things have been more than difficult and we want you to know that PTSO is still here, supporting your student and the staff here at Coyote. Gear up for a great year because we are coming back STRONG! Starting out with a HUGE thank you to the families that continued to donate and support PTSO in 2020. Due to your generosity, we are able to cut a check for $10,000.00 to help the school purchase and update the Marquee as well as $3,000.00 to help with some school beautification and window wraps!
Not familiar with PTSO and what we do for your Coyote Hills student, teacher, and campus? I am Rachel Varela, I have a son in 6th grade, a daughter in 2nd grade, and two toddler girls ages 4 & 3!! We have a fantastic board made up of Coyote Hills parents with children in various grades and along with parents who have already signed up for membership this year, we make up the Coyote Hills PTSO. You too can join the PTSO and be a part of the decision making, the fun and the friendships! This is our family’s 4th year at Coyote Hills and my favorite part so far has been fostering relationships with other parents and watching how the PTSO really does help this wonderful school thrive.
It is our goal within PTSO to promote and support opportunities for families to be effectively involved in their children’s educational lives because children succeed when families, schools, and communities work together. PTSO assists with home/school communication, cares about school safety, and quality teachers. PTSO helps local leaders plan events and involve families with training, tools, and resources within our school community. In previous years, the Coyote Hills PTSO has funded sporting events, supplies in the classroom, state of the art projection and sound system in the auditorium, arts education, student aid and much more, we are excited to try fun new ways to get our families involved virtually!
Most parents say to me, “I don’t have the time to volunteer or attend the meetings”. My response is always “that’s okay!” Your membership doesn’t commit you to anything but being a part of the school’s PTSO, your dues go directly into the general fund and help us pay for various expenditures during the year. We encourage you to volunteer the time you do have or attend a fundraiser night! Have a small business, have a BIG business? We want to support you and spread the word! Get your info to us so we can build a school wide database for our PTSO members!
This year, $1 from each membership will be donated to our school’s Library to help them purchase new books and continue spreading the love for reading across campus. You can pay for your membership via Venmo (@CoyoteHills-PTSO) or visit our website www.coyotehillsptso.org click the membership tab, there you can pay online through PayPal (make sure to click, pay a friend)!! I promise to make your PTSO experience fun and hassle free! Sign up Now! Thank you for your time, for being a present parent and for your dedication to Coyote Hills and its students! I look forward to meeting each of you!
We’re better together,
