Welcome Back to School!

Welcome to the 2015-16 school year! The PTSA has already started planning and we’re excited to continue many of the wonderful programs our students, teachers, and parents enjoy here at Stafford Primary.

On behalf of our executive committee, we would like to invite you to become a member of the Stafford PTSA. Your voice and vote are not only encouraged but important in the shaping of our children’s future in education. Please know that no matter where your talents or interests lie, there is a place for you in the Stafford PTSA. The PTSA meets once per month and all are welcome! There’s a calendar of scheduled meetings and events located in the Calendar section on our website at Board members, parents, a Teacher representative and Principal Freeborn attend these meetings to field questions and encourage new ideas and input.

The single envelope in the back-to-school packet lets you return your forms and write one check for all of the PTSA areas in which you choose to participate. While it’s not required to pay for everything at once, we hope that this will simplify the process and save you time. Again this year is the ability to donate to the PTSA Annual Fund and become a PTSA member ONLINE! Go to: . Complete the PTSA Annual Fund/PTSA Membership Form online before September 25, 2015 and you will be entered to win an Apple iPod Touch.

Please join us in positively impacting the lives of our children by supporting Stafford’s PTSA organization.

Stampede Volunteers Needed!

Hello Stafford families!

For over the past 15 years, Stafford Primary has kicked off the start of the school year with the STAFFORD STAMPEDE.  This is an incredible opportunity to meet new families, teachers and administrators. This year the Stampede is scheduled for Friday, September 11 from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM.

Each year we celebrate with food, games, pony rides, bounce house, and even a DJ.  Our kids look forward to it every year as a chance to catch up with friends and let off a little steam before the school year really gets underway.

Below you will find links for ticket purchases as well as volunteer opportunities.  Volunteers are very crucial to the success of this event and help make this event a very joyous and memorable experience for our children.  There are numerous shifts throughout the evening, please consider helping for 30 minutes.

We look forward to seeing you and your family at the 2015 Stampede.
