President’s Message

Welcome to a new year of school at Eden Gardens and a new year of PTA.  As you start the year, remember that our focus is children; the children in your home, the children in our school and the children in our community. If this is your first year at Eden Gardens, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to each of you.  If you are a “seasoned” Eagle family, I know that you are as excited as I am to be starting the school year up again.

Families, teachers, and staff are the backbone of our strong and supportive Eden Gardens PTA.  Family involvement is a long tradition at our school and one of its greatest strengths.  The PTA welcomes the participation of all parents, grandparents, guardians, aunts, uncles, friends, neighbors and community leaders – all of the wonderful folks who care for and about our students and surrounding community.

The more you engage with our school community and our PTA, the more rewarding your experience at Eden Gardens will be.  We encourage you to look for opportunities to volunteer and share your experience and talents.  There is a place for everyone in the Garden regardless of the amount of time you are able to commit and the number one reason to join the PTA is to benefit the children.  In joining, you also help us, but there are many more advantages: you demonstrate to your child the importance you place on education, you gain valuable experiences and personal confidence,  you’ll be part of the solution and helping to make positive change, it provides opportunities to meet other parents, faculty and staff, PTA meetings are a great place to meet and connect with other families, and you are showing support ongoing PTA initiatives and priorities.

If you want to learn more about ways to help, or have any questions, concerns, or ideas to share, always feel free to reach out to me.

I hope to see you at our next event!
