Swarthmore Rutledge School Home and School Association

June 5, 2020
Dear SRS Community, Parents, Guardians and Care-givers,

We wanted to take a brief moment to say “HELLO” and give a quick update on your SRS Home and School Association.

Thanks to your generous donations and support of programs and events, Home and School has consistently been here to support our teachers and prepare our children for the next steps in their educational and enrichment journey. This support continues as we work to navigate how our programs and efforts are shifting during this pandemic.

We are fortunate to have had a healthy fundraising year thanks to generous direct donations, corporate donations from your employers, corporate sponsorships achieved via Spirit Night Fundraisers and shopping partnerships like Giant and Amazon Smile. We also had extremely successful fundraisers including Fall Fest, Book Fair and Bongo Night.

This funding allowed us to host successful events like STEM Night, to provide enrichment for our students via virtual African Dance (with a performance to follow in the Fall), and to honor our 5th graders who are preparing to move up to Middle School.

We have also been able to provide teacher with additional classroom supplies and provide funding for special events like the guest author presentations such as Baptiste Paul.

We cannot predict what the next school year will look like, but we do know that we will want to continue our mission of enrichment, support, and having fun! We hope you and your children will look forward to these memory making events in the years to come, whatever they may be.

It is very important to note these programs take community energy and effort to run. We can’t make these programs happen without volunteers -YOU! It is with true gratitude that SRS Home and School says “Thank You” to all those who have already stepped up and given their time and energy… but we are in need of MORE hands to ensure ALL of these programs can continue to be offered at SRS.

We hope you ready to get involved. Please take a moment to review a few key roles where we are looking for immediate support. There will be other opportunities that we will reach out for help later this summer.

For the 2020-2021 School Year we are currently seeking the following:

Treasurer, School Directory Sales Chairperson, Kindergarten Grade Representatives (2), and a Fourth Grade Representative (1). You can also go to srskids.org for a full listing of all the chair and committee information or Email Katie Cleary (khope613@gmail.com) to get more information on open roles. We are excited to get to know you.

Sincerely,
Kimberly Angstadt, Shannon Elliott, and Amy Brown SRS Home and School Associationpage2image24835776page2image24835008
