Dear I.W. & Eleanor Hyde Elementary,
Congratulations on earning the 2016 President’s List Award!
Your PTA has already achieved Active Status AND reported more members than all last year. Way to go, keep up the great work!
Your 2016-17 President’s List Award emblem is a truly a badge of honor because you are one of 1,045 in the state of Texas that earned this award. We hope you will show it off in your PTA emails, social media channels, and your PTA’s website.
As a reminder, this month marked the first month of the 85th Legislative Session. School funding will once again be in jeopardy and our job is to send a powerful message to our elected officials. Last spring, we were told we would need to be louder than ever before.
"Recently a powerful senator told Texas PTA that we will have to be a LOT LOUDER next with oil prices down, revenue will be reduced and funding for public education, which represents 1/3 of the state’s budget, will be at risk. Not only will we not likely see increases in funding, we may see cuts to funding for public schools." - Ellen Arnold, Texas PTA Lobbyist
