Your Corinth PTA Newsletter
Week of May 16-20, 2016
Hello Corinth Families!

Congratulations on another successful school year! And congratulations to all the 6th Grade graduates!

I have truly enjoyed being your PTA President this year, and am excited for Amy McCarthy, who will be taking over the reins. I have also enjoyed writing these weekly emails, and I thank you for reading them. One of my major goals this year was communication, and with the terrific help of Trisha Sims keeping us all updated on Facebook, I hope we accomplished that.

I am also extremely thankful for the dedicated PTA Board with whom I had the privilege to lead this year. Of course, we could only have been so successful with all your donations, and those from the community, and with the help of the hundreds of volunteers, the teachers and staff. And I am especially grateful for Sheryl Huerter and Karen McGuire in the front office. We wish Karen a wonderful retirement. And we wish Mrs. Urban and her family all the best in Texas. But most of all, we are all so lucky to have Mr. Lowe!

Your Corinth PTA is a very special one. All children should have received their yearbook, which is provided to each Dragon with PTA funds. Our PTA also funds all field trips, among many other school activities. If you would like to be involved in next year's PTA, please contact Amy McCarthy.

Have a great last day of school, and a wonderful summer!

Erin Herbst
PTA President
