June 21, 2017 Dear Parents,

What an amazing year it has been for the Bronxville School PTA! It has been an honor to have served as President of such a remarkable organization. Our PTA members and volunteers helped tremendously, in so many different capacities. PTA sponsored programs have been integral in enhancing the educational experiences of our children, while simultaneously promoting family engagement. None of these achievements would have been possible without our exceptional volunteers and the support of our many members.

I would like to take this time to say THANK YOU! There are really no words to express my gratitude to everyone who has supported the PTA this year. I could not have done this job without the support of my Executive Committee, including Kelly Connors, Trish Burnell, Caitlin Greatrex, Jane Scotti, Jennifer Bruno, Emily Wilson, Rose Crawford, and Nonie Flannery. My Executive Board, including Molly Presant, Elena Bright, Suzanne Davis, Hilary Blumenreich, Molly Hendrick, Katie Delaney, Susan Conniff, Beth Aherne, Roslyn Colangelo, Dennise Mulvihill-Schafer, Amy Korb, Linda Pagano, Betsy Putnam, and Angelo Merluccio. These two groups have gone above and beyond the call of “volunteer” duty by dedicating countless hours to our mission. I’d also like to thank the MANY volunteers of each school council, including the class parents, grade chairs, and countless committee chairs and members whose dedication and commitment to our children and their school is greatly appreciated. No deed goes unnoticed! A special thank you to our administrators, teachers, school staff and Board of Education members who make our children the highest priority, in addition to making this year such a cooperative effort. And finally, thank you to all parents and teachers who remembered to pay their dues and joined the PTA!

As I end my term as President, I do not leave you alone. I have had the great pleasure of working alongside Kelly Connors, who will take over as President for the 2017-2018 school year. I wish her and her team the best of luck as she enters this exciting new position.

The PTA is driven by volunteers who care about our school and we are very lucky to have such a supportive community. We are ALWAYS looking for new volunteers! Whether you’re a stay-at-home mom or dad, or working outside of your home, there is always something we can use your help with. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me, or Kelly, to find out ways you can contribute. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about how you can get involved.

Serving as President of the Bronxville School PTA has been a special role for me. To everyone who has helped me throughout the year and made this time so enjoyable, I thank you for your support, confidence, and friendship.

Enjoy the summer!

With warmest regards,

Angela Seminara

President, Bronxville School PTA
