A Letter from the Park School PTA President

Dear San Mateo Park Neighborhood Residents,

As the newly elected PTA president, I would like to welcome you to join the San Mateo Park Elementary School community and invite you to help our organization advocate for the children of Park School.  With a new PTA Executive Board and a new principal, this will be a year of transition; and with great enthusiasm, I challenge you to become members of the Park School PTA as we seize the opportunity to build strong relationships and bring positive change to Park School.

The PTA is an organization committed to making a difference in the education, health, and safety of all children.  We partner with parents, guardians, teachers, staff, neighbors, and community members on many levels to bring fun and educational programs, events, services, and opportunities to our children to enrich their academic experience.  With your support, we can make San Mateo Park School academically challenging and nurturing for the children.  Your contribution, whether Time, Talent, or Treasure makes a difference.

Becoming a PTA member does not obligate you to donate Time, Talent, or Treasure (although your contributions will be greatly accepted).  PTA membership gives you an opportunity to get connected, speak up, watch yourself grow, give back, and effectively engage all for the benefit of the children (membership application here).  To learn more about why you should join the PTA, please read this PTA purpose flyer.

The overall purpose of PTA is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.  The Park School PTA is running its Pledge For Park Campaign to raise $65,000 to help fund books, field trips, assemblies, and enrichment for the children of San Mateo Park Elementary School.  So far, we have only raised about $4,200.  In order to achieve our goal, we need your help.

All donations are tax-deductible and can be made through www.PledgeForPark.com. Checks made payable to Park School PTA may be mailed to 161 Clark Drive, San Mateo, CA 94402.

San Mateo Park School PTA is a 501(c)(3) charity.  Online donors will automatically receive an email receipt with our non-profit tax I.D.  We will mail a receipt to all sponsors who donate via check.

Thank you in advance for your generosity.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Sincerely,

Yvonne DiMatteo

San Mateo Park School PTA President, 2016-2017
