This is the time of year that things ramp up for everyone, including the PTSO. We just had the 1st Annual Flag Ceremony at James River and that celebrated the diversity of James River. We were thrilled to have the Secretary of Education for the state of Virginia, Atif Quarni, join us as the Keynote Speaker and to have so many students involved in the ceremony. It was a truly uplifting experience for James River HS.
This week we are looking forward to our biggest event of the year, Color Splash. If you haven't signed up yet, it's not too late. Please go to the home page and click on the "Register Here" button. Funds from the event go back to support mental health initiatives at the school as well as the Carrie Roarty Family Fund. We hope you'll come out and support the school!
Currently, our Nominations Committee is seeking people to fill two positions: VP, Programs and President. If you are interested, please contact the committee at firstname.lastname@example.org. In May, we also look forward to hosting a self-defense class. Watch for the PTSO newsletter to get more information about this event in coming weeks.
