Message from the PTO President

Welcome to Condit | 2015-2016

We’re excited about another great school year! If you are new, welcome to the Condit family! Condit is a busy, wonderful place where your children will grow and thrive, and we want you to be informed and involved. Receiving school and PTO information throughout the school year comes in many forms:


Condit Happenings | a weekly email distributed to the Condit community, provides up-to-date information about school and PTO activities and events, along with any important community related news. Stay connected > join the distribution list by sending an email to Stephanie Sparks, VP of Internal Communications:

Cat Chat Monthly | the PTO digital monthly newsletter is distributed via email the 3rd Wednesday of each month.

Wednesday Folder | a Condit green folder, sent home with your child from school each week – contains announcements of upcoming activities, graded class work, report cards, permission slips, etc.

Condit PTO Website | maintained by the PTO, has important announcements and details about PTO related activities, volunteer opportunities, committees and a complete calendar, which you can also sync to your calendar on your computer and/or smart phone to get reminders so you don’t miss an event! {}

Condit School Website | maintained by Lenette Pruetz – our Technology teacher, regularly updated with important school information, staff contact information, HISD information, and helpful class and lab links. {}

PTO Meetings | five meetings are held during the school year on Mondays, at 8:00am. Attending the meetings is one of the best ways to stay informed, meet people and to get involved with your child’s education.

Parent involvement at Condit is highly encouraged! The PTO has volunteer positions of all sorts – whether you like to work solo or in groups, monthly or special occasions, we will find a spot for you. Please contact Whitney Donalson, Volunteer Coordinator for opportunities:; or visit the Volunteer page at: Volunteer Sign Up.

Join the PTO! | Annual dues are: Teacher $5, Family $25. You can sign-up at the Snow Cone Social, Open House, PTO meetings, or fill out a membership form in the school office or PTO website. Please contact Viviana Ramirez, Membership Chair:

Condit Night Out | a monthly fundraiser, but even better – a chance to meet other Condit families, the PTO schedules a CNO at a local restaurant in the community. Condit families dine out and the restaurant donates a percentage of the sales to our school. It’s fun to see old friends and make new ones! Locations and dates are on the school calendar, PTO website, and sent in Wednesday folders.

Condit Sociables | fun events hosted by Condit parents every month. 100% of the proceeds go towards our new school. Events planned for this year include: Hurricane party, Girls mani/pedi party, Bowling bash for kids, Gingerbread house decorating, Mom’s art party, Wig & Stache Party, Crawfish boil, and Kickball tournament (4th vs 5th). Themes may be subject to change. Stay tuned for dates to be announced.

Snow Cone Social | meet your teachers, purchase school supplies (if not already pre-purchased), meet your classmates, make new friends, and grab a snow cone: Thursday, August 20th from 9:30-11:30am

Kinder and 1st Grade Social | students in Kindergarten and 1st grades grab the family and head over for some cold treats at the Bellaire Aquatics Center Friday, August 28th from 6:30 – 8:30pm. It’s a great time to meet classmates and parents! .

Kinder Summer Social | families starting Kindergarten… Sign up!!! Do you have an incoming sibling or friends starting Kindergarten at Condit in August? This would be a great way for new Condit families to meet & hopefully become active in our PTO.   Some ideas include meeting at the park, swimming at the Bellaire pool, indoor bounce place and much more. Contact: to give her your child’s name, email & phone number so we can add you to our Kindergarten summer playgroup!

Open House | important and informative, meet with your child’s teacher and learn about the upcoming school year inside the classroom and around campus.

Open House will be at 6:30 pm on each respective night.

  • {Pre-K, Kinder, & 3rd grade} September 2;
  • {1st & 4th grades} September 8; and
  • {2nd & 5th grades} September 9.

If you are new to Condit, join us at New-to-Condit Orientation on September 2 at 6:00pm in the cafeteria. (prior to Open House)

On behalf of the PTO, I would like to welcome you to Condit. I encourage you to join the PTO and find a way to get involved. Any time offered will be greatly appreciated and will make a world of difference to our children.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions. We’re going to have an {AMAZING} year!
