A Message from Our President:

Welcome to the Paddock 2020-2021 school year! While the back to school climate is extremely different this year, the mission of our PTA is unchanged. We are dedicated to provide an enriching learning environment for our students, a welcoming community for our families and give support to our teachers and staff.

During a typical school year, the PTA hosts family events, such as the STEAM Fair, Panther Fest and Movie Night. Students are able to participate in all-school assemblies and join reading clubs. We show our gratitude to Paddock’s teachers and staff during Teacher Appreciation Week and provide parent volunteers to organize class parties. We support our community by donating to Paddock families in need through the Winter Wishes program and volunteer our time at charities such as Feed Our Starving Children. Through our successful fundraising efforts in the past two years, the PTA has provided new playground equipment for our students to enjoy. Given the current extraordinary circumstances, some of these events will be replaced or supplemented with activities that follow current guidelines.

We invite you to join us as we work to reach our goals. Regardless of whether our children attend school in-person or virtually, we remain one Paddock community. It is more important than ever that we stand together. We will do great things this school year, and the more members that we have, the more good that we can accomplish.
