Dear Community Members,
One of the (many) programs the PTSA provides to each of our district schools centers around academic enrichment. In the past we’ve called this ‘Cultural Arts’ but have included social studies and science enrichment activities as well. At the elementary level, it’s not too difficult to find programs that fit into the curriculum. The difficulty comes up in the middle and high school years when state requirements are high and time available for field trips is reduced.
We’d like to reach out to our community members to see if anyone has a skill, an interest, or an experience that they might be willing to share with some of our students. Someone who has traveled to unique destinations may be able to speak to a Global History class. A laboratory scientist might be able to address a high school chemistry class. A middle school math class might enjoy listening to a CPA. A professional musician would always be welcome to speak to our band students.
Our students pride themselves on their community service. It’s nice to show them by our own actions. Will you let us know any areas in which you might be interested in sharing your talents with our students?
Send us an email at email@example.com and tell us what you can do for our students. We’ll get back to you on coordinating things.
