In case you missed Blue Ridge PTA


In case you missed the first Blue Ridge Elementary PTA meeting of the school year on Thursday, Sept. 2, here are some things that were covered:

  • Blue Ridge has 70 fewer students than last year, so classes are smaller this year.

  • It was suggested to reverse the roles in parent-teacher conferences: The parent would give information about the student to the teacher during a 10-15 minute appointment-only session. The next parent-teacher conferences are Thursday and Friday, Nov. 11-12.
  • Missouri Assessment Program scores: scores for eight of the 10 subgroups went up, one stayed the same and one went down.
  • The Clothes Closet needs new or gently used clothes in all sizes, specifically: boys’ underwear and pants; girls’ pants and shirts; and boys’ and girls’ shoes.
  • The Missouri State PTA Convention is Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 15-17, at the Stoney Creek Inn and Convention Center.
  • If your student has good behavior he or she can attend a Mustang Manners Celebration.  See the flier for more information.

Save the date:

  • Thursday, Sept. 23:  Shakespeare’s Fundraising Night (both locations) during which 15 percent of your purchase benefits the Blue Ridge Elementary PTA
  • Friday, Oct. 8: Trivia Night, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Tiger Shrine Club, 1300 Blue Ridge Road. The cost is $10 per person or $80 per table, and you must make a reservation to participate.  This is an adults-only event, and the money benefits the Blue Ridge Elementary PTA. If you wish to make a reservation, mail the form and payment to: Blue Ridge Elementary School PTA, 3700 Woodland Drive, Columbia, MO 65202.
  • Wednesday, Oct. 20- Early release
  • Friday, Oct. 22- Fall party

For your information:

  • PTA meetings are held at 6:30 p.m. on the first Thursday of every month in the Media Center.
