  WELCOME BACK!

Is summer really over already? I know that, like me, many of you have children in school or a pre-school program. My oldest started a 3-day pre-school program this week. The first day went well. I’m happy to report no one cried. The second day – when they started curb drop-off and I couldn’t walk my pre-schooler to her classroom was met with lots and lots of tears. I am thankful, though, that she had turned around and run off to play with her friends before I broke into tears. It’s not always the kids that cry :) .

What no one is crying about is the fact that our CECPTA year will officially begin this Friday, September 12th with our first meeting of the 2014-2015 year! I hope you’ll join us to meet and socialize with current and new members. For those who are new to CECPTA, our General Meetings are held once per month from 9:30-11:30am. Lisa Howell has lined up some amazing speakers for the adults and Kari Enge has arranged for fantastic children’s programs in the nursery as well! Don’t forget – we’ll have free babysitting in September and, of course, a light meal provided by the board.

I mentioned just a few of the things your hard working board has planned for the year. Just wait until you hear about the socials, parties, community service projects, and plans for our silent auction. This year has exciting things in store!

COMMUNITY SERVICE PROJECTS
Carolyn will be collecting needed supplies for Children’s Advocacy Center for Denton County and discussing our upcoming service projects. You don’t want to miss these opportunities to get involved in the community and teach our children the importance of giving back!

REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE – FOR HALLOWEEN!
If you have a Halloween costume your child won’t be using this year, bring it to the meeting and let someone else borrow it!
Attach the size, your name, and your phone number to the costume so the borrower can return it at the November meeting. You can save some money AND help a friend save some too!
