Bike/Walk To School Day a Success!!!

The Aldrin PTA thanks all the bikers, walkers and scooters that helped make the bike/walk to school event this past Wednesday, May 6th, a tremendous success! Aldrin had 128 bikers, at least 8 scooters and more than 35 pre-registered walkers. We are still awaiting results to see who among the Reston elementary schools gets trophies for most overall and highest percentage of biking participants, awarded by the Reston Association Pedestrian & Bicycling Advisory Committee, stay tuned! As always, the PTA appreciates the support of Aldrin administration, staff and families that help make these events successful.

Participants received a variety of fun giveaways including a biking toe token. If your child didn’t receive a token, please contact Jennifer Johns or Annmarie Swope and we’ll make sure s/he gets one!

BELIEVE IT OR NOT…IT’S TIME TO FILL PTA POSITIONS FOR NEXT YEAR! IS THIS YOUR YEAR?!!!

The PTA is already gearing up for next year! It is time to start looking for volunteers to support our activities during the 2015 – 2016 school year. Available positions range from board positions to chairperson roles to plan and run key activities for our Aldrin community.

If you have ever wondered how the After School Programs run, have been interested in helping make sure all teachers have great room parents, or wanted to be in charge of the Bike to School days, we have roles for you! These are just a few of the exciting ways you can help Aldrin next year!

Join us at the next PTA meeting on May 12 at 7pm to learn more about the roles we are seeking to fill.

Questions? Contact Tricia Hartigan.
