Welcome to the 2014-15 school year! My name is Natasha Giannini, and I am the Kolb Elementary School Parent Faculty Club (PFC) president for this school year. I have a son going into 5th grade, as well as a toddler. This is my 3rd year at Kolb Elementary School, and my 4th year serving on the PFC, and I am excited to round out my PFC experience by serving as president this year.
What is the PFC? The name wrongfully applies this is a ‘club’. This is not a club, rather it is a commit-tee of dedicated Kolb parents serving to enrich the educational experiences of our children. We act as a liaison between the school and parents.
The PFC is responsible for the supplemental educational supplies and technology requested by our teachers and school administration. Items such as additional Common Core materials and the Starfall program for our Kindergartners are not provided by our school district and are necessary to provide the best opportunity for a successful and positive educational experience for our students and their increased educational demand
We also arrange and fund many fun activities throughout the year such as: Donuts for Dads, Mornings with Moms, visiting field trips, and Trunk or Treat, as well as fun programs such as Art in Action. In addition, we engage volunteers for these events as well as picture day, vision and hearing testing days, and the book fair, just to name a few.
None of this wonderful work our PFC does would be possible without our Kolb parents. Your monetary donations are what allow us to provide these fun events, and requests from Kolb teachers and staff. Your time is also vital in allowing these events to take place. I am relying on you to continue this successful tradition with the commitment to volunteer! No amount of time is too small.
Finally, I would like to pledge my commitment to you this year. I am determined to make communication between parents, teachers, PFC, and Kolb staff better this year, thus build a stronger sense of community here at Kolb, but I need your help in making this successful. Last year, the PFC purchased a digital marquee to be installed this fall, which will help relay information to parents, stay informed, and read and/or become familiar with our website, www.kolbpfc.org, and our Facebook page. You will find a wealth of information at these both sites, from spiritwear purchases, budget, monthly meeting minutes and agendas, upcoming events and volunteer opportunities as well as how to sign up for newsletters.
Get involved, and attend our PFC meetings which are held the second Thursday of each month from 6:30-7:00 p.m. in the MPR (children are welcome). Please do not hesitate to contact any of the PFC board members if you have questions about specific items (PFC board member contact information can be found on the About Us page or email us at email@example.com).
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I look forward to a wonderful year!
Kolb PFC President
