From the President

This is my last newsletter to you as your FES PTA President. I would like to thank the following parents for all their hard work as committee chairs while I was president...Tracy Sharma, Patty Sawyer-Bottner, Alison Wall, Susan Chagrin, Megan Grabina, Kelly Roby, Chris Pereira, Michelle Robb, Deka Nur,  Sarah Tewolde, Coretta Bennett, Lei Zhang, Rochelle Weirich, Erica Streitz, Jennifer Phillips, Lisa Pulay, Andie Cohen, Leslie Alexander, Lisa Donohoe, Krystal Kolassa, Rae Ann Kaylie, Kristina Leary, Marty Cowan, Christy Emanuel, Erin Orr, Meghna Lipcon, Sheila Muniz, Jackie Hongladarom, Jaime Holmes, Chris Borleis, Alisha Rovner, Dr. Vanessa Allen, Anisa Cott, Lisa Schlossnagle, and Deepa Vogel.

To all the amazing parents that gave their time for helping with Fall Festival, Holiday Shoppe, Boosterthon, Teacher Luncheons, Teacher Appreciation Week and International Night.  Special thanks to my board Josh Felsen, Hope Ripkin, Natalie Albanesi, Sherry Harms, Stephen Orr, Denise Smith, and Christina Felsen this has been an amazing and fun journey with you all!

Thank you to the wonderful staff here at Fulton Elementary! They truly care about our students and want them to succeed. Thank you to our Custodial Staff! Mr. Prowell, Mr. Mistry, and Ms. Kim, you and the rest of your staff are the BEST!  Thank you to our school office staff as well, Ms. McPherson, Mrs. DeBlasis, and Ms. McEneaney for making sure all our parents stay informed!
Last but not least, I want to thankyou to our Principal- Mrs. Lewandowski and Assistant Principal Mr. Esposito, you two are the best!!  I have truly enjoyed working with you both to make Fulton Elementarya better place and thank you for your friendship!

If I could leave you all with one thing, GET INVOLVED!   Our students love to see their parents at the school. One hour of your time makes a huge difference! If you cannot come to school, just helping with any sign up genius item is great! Sending in or dropping off a gallon of juice or a dessert is a big help.

Now I would like to welcome Coretta Bennett as your new FES PTA President! Coretta comes to you all with a wealth of knowledge of Fulton Elementary School- having been one of the co chairs of International Night for over 5 years!

Have a wonderful, fun and safe summer!

Thank you all  again for everything!
Cindy Johnson
President, FES PTA
