Hi River Place Elementary parents. I'd like to introduce myself and welcome you all to the 2020/2021 school year school.  My name is Kari Cooper, I am the incoming PTA president this year. My family has been a River Place resident for 9 years, we have 3 boys grades 5th, 4th and 1st.  I hope to have the opportunity to meet you all virtually or in person at some point in the school year.  
 
Our PTA's focus this year is 'Connections, Community and Advocacy.' As we enter this unprecedented and uncharted school year, that also feels a bit like an endless summer, our PTA members have been working on ways to help our families feel supported and connected.  While we may not have the opportunity to connect in person, it's our goal to help create connections through social media channels and provide support to both our teachers/staff and families as we all navigate this school year.  We're all experiencing  a myriad of emotions as we work to decide what's best for our families and children while ensuring they get the education and social interactions they need.  To help create connections we've created grade level facebook pages to connect with families and students in your child's grade.  We encourage you to join and interact.  We are also rolling out  a 'Buddy Family' program to connect families that are new to campus with existing families to aid in transition.   There are lots of fun things in the works. 
 
 
While we may not have all the answers or know what next month or next semester will look like, we are here to support and connect our campus.  We invite you to become a PTA member and rally our campus as we all learn more about what it means to be resilient and 'Keep On Bouncing' as we Bounce into the new school year. 
 
Best wishes for a smooth back to school,
Kari Cooper
River Place Elementary PTA President
