Congratulations! Your PTA is one of only 583 that earned Texas PTA’s Head Start and Early Bird Achievement Awards. By recruiting 75% and then 100% of last year’s total membership before October, you have shown you understand the power of membership for O.D. Shackelford Junior High and Texas PTA.
What you have achieved thus far is impressive.  I thank you for your hard work and enthusiasm.
My challenge to you now, is to capitalize on your momentum.  Strive for the Fall Membership Increase Award, the 105% Challenge, and make your mark by earning The Voice for Every Child Award. The next award deadline is October 31. I encourage you to continue the great work. I am confident that you won’t stop until you have one member to represent every child on your campus. Visit http://www.txpta.org/my-pta/awards/ to learn about every award opportunity and the corresponding deadlines.
Your Head Start and Early Bird Achievement award emblems are a badge of honor we encourage you to showcase. Share it in your PTA emails, on your social media channels, and your PTA’s website. Notify your school district of the distinguished honor and keep in contact with them throughout the year.
Wishing you continued success,
Lisa Holbrook

REFLECTIONS:  

Enter your piece in the areas of dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and/or visual arts.  With positive recognition as the focus of this program, rather than competition, students of all ages and abilities can experience the benefits of creative expression and help in finding their own voice in telling their unique story.  Deadline for GHS entries is October 27, 2017.  Turn your piece in to Mrs. Rollins.  Theme of the piece must focus on "Within Reach."
