President’s Letter

RM_50_ Logo_Centered_BDear Round Meadow Families,

We hope you enjoyed your summer and are looking forward to an exciting, fun filled 2015-16 school year. We’d like to thank our community of volunteers for giving their time and supporting our school in so many ways. We are all PFA members and together we help to make Round Meadow an incredible school!

This year, in an attempt to not overwhelm our parent volunteers and families, we have scaled down the number of events and fundraisers. Having said that, we, the parents of Round Meadow have made a commitment to our children to provide them with a world-class education. This kind of education comes at a price way beyond what the State or LVUSD provides and for that reason, the “Ask” for our Annual Fund will be slightly higher this year at $600 per student. This year’s dollars pay for this year’s kids! Please be reminded that our Art, PE, Music, Computer/Media Specialist and Reading Specialist are paid for 100% by parent donations to the PFA. Through our PFA funded programs our kids thrive and excel in all aspects of their learning and development. Without parent support the number of instructional aides who work in the classrooms and supervise the playground before, during and after school would be severely cut, as would the hours of our beloved specialists. The donations to the PFA also fund assemblies, books, technology, student access to IXL, Reading Counts, classroom supplies, and the list goes on.

We choose to send our children to Round Meadow because of all the things that set it apart and make the school so special. Now it is up to all of us to keep Round Meadow an exceptional place to go to school! We look forward to a very successful year, supported by our great Round Meadow families.


Marci Berg and Amy Grayson PFA Co-Presidents!
