January Volunteer of the Month

Please join us in recognizing our January Volunteer of the Month, Melissa Pyne. Melissa serves as the Chair of the Spirit Tshirt Committee. This year she has overseen ordering and delivering each of the shirts our students and staff members wear to show school pride. It's a big job that requires a lot of attention to detail and follow up. Thank you so much Melissa for your support and hard work!


Spirit Night: Wednesday, 1/23, at Chili's - 4 pm to 9 pm.

Findley Oaks Parents - We need your help!  Please sign up for a half hour slot to sign in the students attending the Spirit Night.  The class with the most attendees will receive a special treat. Your help is greatly appreciated to make sure we account for every student!


Your PTA at Work!  Since the beginning of the school year, Findley Oaks PTA has given more than $3,000 in mini grants to support a number of projects in our school. Teachers and staff members apply for these grants to help support special projects and classroom needs. Some of the projects that mini grants have already supported this year include: Second Grade PBL efforts, gardening supplies for Kindergarten, a touch screen laptop used for testing, online reading programs, and in-classroom supplies and tools. The mini grants program is just one more way PTA is making a difference each day in the classroom and throughout our school.


Fun Run Funds Support Hurricane Michael Relief Efforts

Thanks to your generosity with the 2018 Fun Run, Findley Oaks was able to make a donation to support schools in Southwest Georgia that were severely impacted by Hurricane Michael. We donated $2000 to Decatur County Schools and the "BearCats Have Heart" Fund. These funds are directly impacting the lives of Georgia elementary school students and teachers who are still recovering from the devastation left by Hurricane Michael in October. Thank you for your support of these efforts!


Your PTA Needs You!  PTA is currently identifying those who would like to serve on the 2019 Nominating Committee. The PTA Nominating Committee helps to fill PTA Board and Chair positions for the next school year. If you would like to get involved and help ensure the future success of our PTA, please contact Nita Hemrajani at findleyoaksptapresident@gmail.com today.
