Messages from PTA
Next HS PTA Meeting
 is Tuesday, May 2nd at 8:25 in the HS Office Conference Room.  All are welcome to attend.

Staff Recognition Luncheon
This year's staff appreciation luncheon is Wednesday, May 10th.  The HS PTA provides lunch, dessert, and a drink for each staff member.  This year we will again be providing meals from Panera Bread.

Please send in a monetary donation to help offset the cost of this luncheon. This is the only time during the year that the HS PTA asks for donations. Every little bit helps to make this a special thank you to the staff that work with our children during the school year.

We are also looking for volunteers to help setup, serve and clean up the day of the luncheon, May 10th.  If you can volunteer please contact Mary C. Ystueta at mary_y@alum.mit.edu

The staff looks forward to the scrumptious desserts provided by the HS PTA.  To donate a dessert please sign up at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c084caea928a5fd0-staff1


Littleton PTA Elections
PTA will be electing executive- and school-level officers for 2017-2018 at the May 8 Executive Board meeting, which is open to the public. The Littleton PTA is especially in need of a President next year, who is primarily responsible for running the monthly meetings and being a point-of-contact for others.

If you are interested in serving at any level, please download and return the attached form, contact Mary C. Ystueta at mary_y@alum.mit.edu, or reach out to Katie Bonner (krbonner@gmail.com). Thank you!

Message for the Class of 2017- Kindergarten Quilts
It has been a tradition during Senior Week to display in the HS the kindergarten quilts made by our graduating seniors.  I am trying to locate those quilts that were made either in the 2003-2004 kindergarten year (graduating seniors from transitional class) or 2004-2005 (graduating seniors who did not go to transitional).

If you have one of these quilts, or know of someone who might, please contact me, Kim Raymond, atkbwraymond@gmail.com.  You will get your quilt back after Senior Week!
