Dear East Side Families:
We apologize for any inconvenience our decision to reschedule the Walk to School may have caused. Last evening the threat of thunderstorms and strong winds was extremely high during the 7:00 − 8:00 a.m hour. As our top concern during any event is the safety of our students, staff and parents, we decided to reschedule for this Friday, May 2nd. The weather forecast for Friday should allow for a much safer and more enjoyable walk for all of our East Side Families.
We appreciate everyone’s cooperation and understanding in regards to this decision.
The East Side PTA
Presented by the Walton High School Leader Academy
There will be no charge for the babysitting, however we are trying to raise money for the VH1 Save the Music foundation and all donations are greatly appreciated!
Below is a e-mail written to the attendees of the School Budget Crisis Meeting by the ECCC PTA hosts, we are posting it here because it contains good information and actions that all of us can take.
There was standing room only at the December 4, 2013, East Cobb County Council of PTAs Panel Discussion on the School Budget Deficit. Thanks to everyone who attended. We appreciate the candor of our panelists — Dr. Michael Hinojosa, Superintendent of Schools, and the members of the Cobb County Board of Education, Mr. Randy Scamihorn (chair), Mr. David Banks and Mr. Scott Sweeney — on the serious nature of the expected budget deficit, and that hard choices will need to be made in order to balance the budget in 2015. If you haven’t seen it, here is a link to the MDJ article about the meeting: http://mdjonline.com/
The clear “take away” from this meeting was to communicate with our elected officials about this issue — so that they understand that we believe this is a critical issue for our community and state.
What can we do as parents and community members?
Please consider the ECCC PTA as a resource and voice for children on this issue. We will not give up. Neither should you. See www.ecccpta.org for more information.
