Welcome to the 2017-18 school year!

 

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! My name is Melissa Arcaro Burns and I am very proud to be President of the Moorestown Home & School Association. The Moorestown Home & School Association is commonly referred to as Home & School. Home & School is the bridge between home and school life for the children in the Moorestown school district…our version of the PTA.

Our mission is to support and enhance every student’s educational experience! We welcome and appreciate your membership and involvement. Whether you like to help in the classroom, organize fundraisers, keep track of finances or organize service events for the community, day or evening, there is something for you in Home & School!

Our website, www.moorestownhomeandschool.com, has a lot of great information on it, so please visit it to learn more about our organization and to join online. Home & School relies heavily upon membership dues and direct donations to provide a large portion of our working budget. Our working budget funds many enhancements for our children, such as field trips, assemblies, author days, playground equipment, library reading areas, SMART boards, theater equipment, and scholarships for high school seniors, in addition to helping fund Project Graduation. These are just a few things your membership dues and direct donations provide all of our students each year.

As a benefit of being a member, you will receive a printed Home & School calendar and a printed District Directory of all the Moorestown Public Schools. Additionally, you will become part of a group in which you’ll make friends and have the chance to be involved in your child’s school life. To help you remain current with what’s happening in your school, you are also welcome & encouraged to attend your school’s monthly Home & School meetings. All meeting dates are listed on the Home & School calendar as well as on our website. You should also watch for HOME & SCHOOL NEWS messages via email, as they will contain reminder notes and date/time-sensitive information to help you more easily navigate the school year.

We are proud to say that the Moorestown Home & School Association is a 100% volunteer organization! Our 1500+ members contribute their time, creativity, and talents to offer programs and services to all of Moorestown’s students. For liability purposes, in order to volunteer with Home & School, including being a room parent, media center volunteer, or helping at Field Days or Book Fairs, you must be a member of Home & School.

We encourage you to become a member for this school year… you only need to join once per family, per year. Simply click the Register button to join online or to print our form and send it in to your school. Thank you for your support, and we look forward to your participation in Home & School this year!

Warm Regards,

Melissa Arcaro Burns
Moorestown Home & School President
