PTO Updates: What you need to know!

8/16/2022 7:22 am

 
Hello ESS Families!
 
We are sharing the information below that was sent out via IC Email from Mrs. Weber.
 
Please consider attending this very important BOE meeting on Thursday February 9th at 6pm, it will be focused on the proposed budget.
 
The address for the meeting is 382 Long Hill Ave, Shelton.
 
All ESS Families are encouraged to write to your local Aldermen and express how important their support is to fully fund the budget request from the Board of Education. 
 
We will resume PTO meetings in March with our next scheduled meeting on Thursday March 2nd.
 
Thank you for your support!
 
A NOTE FROM MRS. WEBER:
 
I am going to change the PTO meeting on Thursday 2/9. I think it is imperative that parents attend the BOE Budget meeting at 6:00 that evening at the BOE offices on Long Hill Avenue instead. Some significant cuts may be made, especially with staffing which would directly impact class sizes. Mr. Saranich can no longer attend our meeting due to this change-we will reschedule him to a later date.
 
Reach out with any questions you may have.
 
I hope to see you there-Mrs. Weber
 
 
There are also some fun events coming up we want to make sure everyone has on their calendars: 
  • March 10th (Friday) – VIP and Me Dance at ESS in the Gymnasium from 6:30-8:30pm!   The PTO will be hosting a dance for ESS students and their special VIP person to attend with them!   There will be a DJ and refreshments.   More details and ticket sales to follow shortly.
