SES PTO Update
Sunday, September 13, 2015
Dear Parents,

The Shenandoah Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) would like to welcome you to a new school year. For those of you who are unfamiliar with us, we are a volunteer organization made up of parents, teachers, administrators, and support staff who are all dedicated to the successful education of our children. The SES PTO works hard to help make the school year both enjoyable and exciting for students, teachers, and parents.

The purpose of our organization is to aid the students and staff by providing support for educational and recreational needs; to promote open communication between administration, teachers and parents and to encourage SES school spirit and pride. The PTO uses its resources, both manpower and monetary, to support all the efforts of the staff of our school.

We are looking forward to meeting families, parents, and grandparents that would like to get involved with our PTO this school year. We encourage you to not only join our organization, but get involved as well! Everything we do is based on volunteers and we are always looking for those of you to help make a difference in the lives of our children. Every positive imprint we make on our children can go a long, long way. If you are able to give some time, day or evenings, please join us! Many hands make the job easier.

You can participate and help us make the 2015-2016 a great school year. We will need as many volunteers as possible, and are flexible enough to work around your schedule. Our group meets approximately once a month to discuss events, plan fundraisers to enhance all programs, and share ideas. This is a wonderful way to find out what is happening at our school from the PTO’s perspective.

We in the PTO believe that it is the ultimate importance that we do everything we can to enhance the learning environment of our children as they truly are our future. It will take all of us working together to ensure that this happens.

Our next meeting is October 5, 2015 from 5:00-6:00pm in the elementary conference room. We will be voting on Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary. We will also look to plan for our Bingo for Books event and upcoming events. You do not need to attend the meetings to be a part of the PTO! Please email me if you wish to assist in any way.

Our president, Lynn Joy, was voted into PTO presidency in the late spring due to the resignation of Deb Kraft as she moved out of the district for her husband's employment. We welcome you and your input!

Please watch for an email looking for assistance for Homecoming tattoos and the Book Fair during P/T conferences.

Thank you again and we look forward to another excellent school year!

Shenandoah Education Support Professional receives statewide honor
Thursday, March 12, 2015
English Language Learner associate will receive award at ceremony in Des Moines

DES MOINES, IA (03/12/2015)(readMedia)-- Shenandoah Community Schools English Language Learner associate Patty Roberts will receive the Iowa State Education Association's (ISEA) Education Support Professional Award, Friday, April 10, at the Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center in Des Moines before a group of statewide educators attending the ISEA Delegate Assembly.

"We represent so many outstanding professionals and Patty is a wonderful example of someone who has gone above and beyond and truly exemplifies what it means to be a committed and caring professional. Patty's dedication to her students, her school, the ELL community and her local association make her a gift to the entire community" said ISEA President Tammy Wawro. As an ELL associate, integration of services, interpreting, translating, and mentor/coaching are all part of a day's work. Patty wears many hats in the Shenandoah schools, especially serving the K-12 population, but she has demonstrated a deep and caring understanding of the importance of her role and how integral it is to the success of all students.

"Patty is such a wonderfully caring and committed professional and we are proud she is a member of the association. She embodies the Education Support Professional Award and we are pleased to be able to give her the recognition she so richly deserves," added Wawro.

The Education Support Professional Award was established to recognize the many contributions school support staff members make to teachers, students, and the education profession.

The Shenandoah Booster Club and Shenandoah Athletic Department will kick off a fundraiser on Monday, August 11th. Members of the high school cross country, football and volleyball teams will be selling a discount card that can be used in about twenty Shenandoah businesses.
