Dear Gabrielino PTSA Members,
Thank you all for a wonderful beginning to the school year! Thanks to you we’ve already had a successful first month or so and good attendance at our first association meeting at Back to School Night. I would like to encourage you all, in addition to reading the weekly newsletter, to remember to visit our award winning website at http://www.gabrielinoptsa.org/. You will find informative links to, and information on, many of the topics that impact our kids as they navigate through high school. And please, please, tell your friends and family to consider joining the PTSA. They can join online or use one of the downloadable forms found on our website.
Thanks Again for All Your Help,
