Dear Tally PTO members,
Thank you for all your hard work this year! All of our PTO-sponsored events could not have been successful without your participation and dedication. This year, the PTO started the year with one of the most successful Mexican Supper fundraisers ever, raising approximately $25,000 for our school. We purchased many important classroom items, as well as a merry-go-round. This summer, pathways will be constructed from the cafeteria to the big playground and from the big playground to the track. A bench also will be installed for the teachers on the small playground.
Besides the fundraiser, you helped support luncheons, Thanksgiving pies and birthday brownies for our amazing staff; classroom holiday parties; six AR parties; two book fairs; and many, many other events!
I hope everyone has a safe and fun summer with your Tally Eagles, and I look forward to seeing everyone in the fall for our first PTO meeting on Sept. 10. Please mark your calendar for our first meeting and plan on joining us as we plan another great year for our school.

SLEEPING BAG DRIVE
It has come to the attention of the Tally PTO that some Tally students may not have adequate bedding or even, in some cases, a bed. So, the Tally PTO is currently collecting new sleeping bags for any Tally students in need. If you would like to make a donation, please drop a new sleeping bag off in the front office, and arrangements will be made to get your donation to a student in need. Thanks for making a difference!
