UPCOMING PTA EVENTS

Dear Parents and Guardians,

 

I'm pleased to announce that a group of students, parents, and educators from our community will be participating in a global education initiative that will visit Germany, Italy, and Switzerland in the Spring of 2021! We are going to experience amazing places that include the Neuschwanstein Castle, Heidelberg Castle, a gondola ride on the Grand Canal in Venice, Lake Lucerne, and the Swiss Alps to name a few.

 

This trip is not a school or Wake County sponsored trip.

 

The opportunity for your student to participate and travel with me and other educators is also extended to you as parents. There is limited space available on this trip, so don’t miss my upcoming meeting!

 

My informational meeting will be held on Thursday, November 21st at 5:30 in the Eva Perry Public Library in Apex where I will cover all the details of the trip. I hope to see you there!

 

Kindly RSVP through the link below with how many people will be coming with you so we can plan to have enough seats for everyone:
