Welcome to Condit | 2018-2019

Exciting times!

On behalf of the Condit PTO board, welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! We have brand new staff members joining our awesome veteran teachers bringing their talents to new grade levels, subjects, and students.  Outside of Condit, there is so much transformation and excitement in our city with new businesses and community improvements all over!  Definitely not a shortage of change!

What we have is unique.

What stays consistent is the unique environment at Condit.  We are very fortunate to send our children to this amazing, LEED certified school that is built to suit the changing needs of our student body.  We have an amazing team of administrators, teachers, support staff that protect, educate, and inspire our children daily.  And we have an amazing group of parents that go the extra mile to make Condit even stronger.

In particular, we would like to recognize last year’s PTO Board and Committee members for their leadership and dedication to providing our students with best that we can give.

We will focus our efforts in 4 main areas this year:

Fundraising: to invest in supplemental curricular support, campus improvements, and equipment updates.  The PTO will host a variety of fundraisers throughout the year to support our efforts.    Boosterthon, Condit Night Out, Fall Carnival, and Box Tops for Education, just to name a few:

Volunteerism: to involve the talents of our parent community to help support our school in fulfilling their vision.  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 Holly Koehn, Volunteer Coordinator for opportunities: email hlkoehn@gmail.com or visit the Volunteer page at: Volunteer Sign Up.

Communication: to inform and facilitate productive dialogue between administration, teachers, parents, and students this includes:  Cat Chat Monthly, Wednesday Folder, Condit Happenings, Condit Facebook Page, our PTO page (www.conditpto.org), official school website, (www.houstonisd.org/conditelem)

School spirit:  to give our students, parents, faculty/staff, and community reasons to feel pride in our school.  We will have a variety of socials, community events, and activities that will facilitate this.

How can you help?

The Condit PTO is an integral part of the Condit Family.  We cannot do any of this without you, so support with your time and talents, support with monetary donations, support businesses that support our school, and share your ideas with us!  Each one of us has different skills, talents, and resources that are desperately needed to make Condit what it is.  For some its volunteering in our classrooms.  For others, it is heading up or joining a committee that brings something special to our students. All of the above contributions are vital to bringing the best education and experience to our children.

A few more things:

Join the PTO! | Annual dues are: Family $25, Teacher $5. 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.

Attend PTO Meetings | five meetings are held during the school year meeting. Attending the meetings is one of the best ways to stay informed, meet people and to get involved with your child’s education.  We will have meetings generally after drop off in the mornings but look for a couple of evening meetings in the fall!
