Are You a Puma Patron?
From March 1-April 1, we are sponsoring our spring Puma Patron Drive. This is the sole PTSA fundraiser and allows 100% of your donation to directly support programs and activities for our students and teachers. We plan to use the funds raised to support our regular programs as well as renovations to athletic spaces, fund music and arts programs and assist with school beautification efforts.
Thanks to those Puma families who have already supported our campaign with your generous gifts. No gift is too small, and every gift is tax deductible. Be sure to check with your employer about matching gifts as well. Make your gift today.
Library Volunteers Needed
We’re looking for library volunteers to assist with shelving books and other projects to support our librarians and students. Choose your date and time to fit your schedule. Sign up on nList or contact Lucille Lindamood for more info.
PTA Sponsors Scholarship for Former Pumas
Do you know a former Puma who is graduating from high school this spring? For the third year, we will award the Dr. Mark E. Chamberlain Scholarship to two or three former Short Pump students. Applications for the annual $500 scholarships are due April 17.
Keep the Conversation Going
Thanks to the students, families, teachers, volunteers and community members who helped make our two showings of Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age so successful. We had great feedback both during and after the events and encourage you to keep the conversation going. There are a variety of resources, including screen time contracts and information about parenting apps to help manage screen time, available at www.screenagersmovie.com.
Thanks to our sponsors – Camp Unplugged, Hanover Sports Park, School of Rock and STEMgeo – for their support of this program.
