Millridge Parent Teacher Group Welcome Letter
August 24, 2022
Welcome back Mustangs!
On behalf of the Millridge PTG, we would like to welcome back all new and returning families for the 2022-2023 school year! For those of you who are not familiar, PTG is a group of parents, teachers, and support staff who are dedicated to our children’s education. We look forward to meeting those who would like to get involved with PTG this year.
PTG stands for Parent Teacher Group, consisting of parents and teachers working together to support and enrich all students. We are about men and women working toward a common goal. That goal, simply stated, is creating a better school and better educational experience for our children. We strive to create an atmosphere where teachers, administrators, and support staff can do their best work and so can our children. We cannot do this without the support of our families and community. Thank you for supporting and helping PTG provide the best opportunities to our students.
Why join PTG?
Millridge PTG is a valuable organization in which all students benefit! Joining PTG is a great way to meet families and school staff, share ideas and be active in developing educational and enrichment opportunities for our school and students. We encourage all families to get involved and help grow and support our children.
With the support of our families, the PTG has been able to provide our school and students with valuable resources, programs, and fun! In the past, we have been able to purchase items for our Maker Zone Space such as a 3-D printer and Dash coding robots. We were also able to provide financial support for Millridge Reads, art docent, classroom parties, and one of our favorites, winter workshop! PTG also organizes events like family movie night, book fairs, Great Readers and spirit wear sales.
The above are just a small list of everything PTG offers throughout the school year.
We encourage everyone to be an active member of the PTG, but the level of involvement is up to you! There are no mandatory meetings or volunteer hour requirements, but attending our once-a-month meetings are great way to stay current on what is happening at Millridge. There are many ways to volunteer and get involved through our PTG. You can choose how often you would like to volunteer. For example, some of our programs have a need for work at home and some only require a few hours a month, while special events could involve a higher commitment. Join us September 14th at 7:00 PM to learn more about PTG.
The more help we have, the better our events and programs will be for our students. It takes a team to get these programs up and running. When we all work together, it enriches our students’ opportunities.
