**Parents, We would love for you to join us and witness the incredible things our students can do. You may come for all or part of your child’s day, whatever your schedule allows. Please remember to complete the Volunteer Application for this school year: http://www.chatham.k12.nc.us/Page/21004
Permission slips will be available during Open House and handed out to students on August 29, 2016.
Athletic Gap is a way for your kids to stay at school (supervised) until game time on days when Pollard has home games. (READ: one less trip for you to make shuttling your kid!) The cost for Athletic GAP is $2, and does not include the admission price to the game. Softball and soccer games are free admission. Basketball games cost $3. The Boosters Club sells concessions at games, so your child may want to bring extra money for that as well.
Pollard's PTSA is looking for a few good parents to volunteer for next year. Although they have an amazing team, most of the parents are moving on to Northwood. Positions available include: PTSA President, Vice President, Secretary, Fundraising Chair, Membership Chair, Spirit Wear Chair, and Box Top Chair. The jobs vary in time commitment and assignment. Please contact Wendy Bengivenni with questions. We all know our schools need extra help and extra funding, and this doesn't happen without parents getting involved. Thank you in advance!
Every year, Pollard Band Director, Michele Reams, encourages her band students to go to the esteemed UNCG Summer Music Camp. This year, a record number of 35 Pollard band students attended the camp.
