The purpose of our Parents' Association is to foster cooperation and community spirit among parents, administration, faculty, staff, trustees, and students.
Greetings from your Parents' Association President!
Hello Baltimore Lab School Families,
On behalf of your Parents’ Association, welcome to the 2017-18 school year at Baltimore Lab School (BLS)! The purpose of the Parents’ Association (PA) is to provide support for the Faculty, Administration and Students at BLS through communication, activities and events. Please see the information in the Parents’ Association Welcome Packet (also available on the website) for more information about the PA and our goals.
The PA can’t wait to get started on a year filled with fun and exciting activities and events for the students, families, teachers and staff at BLS. We will continue with our Chick-Fil-A lunch program, Spaghetti Dinner and Scholastic Book Fair and we hope to add an additional lunch day option later in the year. Please take a moment to look at the BLS PA Calendar and review the Rewards Programs. These easy fundraisers help us raise the necessary funds to provide our programs. The first event of the year will be the Welcome Back Orientation on August 28th from 12:30pm to 3pm. Please stop by the PA table and introduce yourself to us. You can drop off forms, pay for Chick-fil-a and membership dues and learn more about the planned activities for the year. We will also be hosting a treat on the porch!
To make all of this year’s events and activities a big success, we need the help of our parent volunteers! There are many opportunities to help and we appreciate your time and effort spent making our organization successful. Please take the time to fill out the Volunteer Form in this Welcome Packet to indicate your areas of interest! We are also looking to expand our Board members and fill the outstanding PA roles. If you would like to volunteer for one of these positions, but are short on time, consider splitting the position with someone!
All families are members of the BLS Parents’ Association and are encouraged to pay the annual dues. Please complete the Membership Form in this Welcome Packet and return all forms to school (ATTN: BLS Parents’ Association) by September 1, 2017. The PA mailbox is located in the front lobby outside Mr. Buettner’s office. Also, we will be hosting our first Staff Appreciation Luncheon in September. Please be on the lookout for the Sign Up Genius in your email. Please join us on Tuesday, September 12th at 8:10am for the first PA Meeting. You will be able to learn more about the PA and help us plan for an amazing year!
Please contact us at ParentsAssociation@baltimorelabschool.org if you have any questions, suggestions or comments about the upcoming school year. We look forward to making this a great year for our families, children and staff!
