Founder's Day was Wednesday, February 25, 2015
Thank you for joining us as we celebrated with a 5th/6th grade
and our Honorary Service Awards
and brief PTA Meeting
in the MPR at 5:45 p.m.
Concert began at 6:00 p.m.
What is Founder’s Day?
Is it to celebrate the Presidents of the US?
Elementary School and the
PTA celebrate Founder’s Day it just happens to be coincidence that it falls
around President’s Day. Nationally PTA
commemorates the first National Congress of Mothers convention that took place
February 17 through 19 in 1897. This
convention emphasizes the importance of parent involvement in the schools and showcases
the role that PTA has played on behalf of our children. In 1910, it was proposed that PTAs nationally
celebrate this day.
We take the time out to honor people that have provided
significant service to the school and our children. Among a long list of distinguished people who
volunteer countless hours of their personal time, this year Wagner PTA has
honored two people.
Congratulations and many thanks to
Jennifer Knight, Christine Snapp and Cathy Martinez
Annette Flores and Cari Quackenbush
Diane Karp, Monique Cravens and Carrie Pipkin
Heather Kronebush and Janet Vash
Denise Lugo, Diane Adamson and Christa Marmolejo
