Dear MLK Families, Staff Members, and Friends,
We’re emailing to remind you that the MLK Elementary School Open House is TOMORROW, Thursday, September 17, from 6:00-7:30 pm Please note the time shift! Previous versions of this email shared that the Open House would start later, but that was incorrect. The Open House starts at 6:00pm. We apologize for any confusion.
During the Open House, you can visit your children’s classrooms, and meet their teachers and other parents. You can also sign up to share two hours of your time with the PTO this year! There is real power in our numbers. If each of us offers two hours for an upcoming event or activity, we will have an amazing year.
During the Open House, we will also be facilitating state Bureau of Criminal Identification checks, which are required for all school volunteers. We strongly urge you to complete a BCI check so that you can participate in activities in school per Rhode Island state law. This includes chaperoning field trips, assisting in classrooms, participating in PTO events that happen during the school day, and more. In order to do a BCI check, you will need to bring your driver’s license or some other form of valid photo ID and a check for $5 payable to “BCI.” We will collect applications on the spot and deliver them to the Rhode Island Attorney General’s office for processing. This allows you to skip a trip to the AG’s office, so come prepared! Thanks.
Also, for those family members who wish to be more involved with the PTO, please join tonight’s MLK PTO Executive Committee Organizing and Business Meeting from 7:00-8:00 pm in the MLK Elementary School Library.
See you soon!
Jill Davidson (MLK PTO President) on behalf of the MLK PTO
