Welcome to a new and exciting year of school and a new year of PTA.  The 2020 - 2021 school year will truly be unlike any other. And we want you to know we have got your back, you are not alone, at Strawberry together we are strong

    As we start this special year together during the time of the COVID 19 pandemic, please remember the mission of the PTA - to positively impact the lives of children and families.  Together at Strawberry Point School, we support this mission through our wide-ranging efforts by supporting school and district programs, supporting the school community through family events, and giving direct help to the teachers and staff at our school.

    If this is your first year at Strawberry Point School, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to each of you.  If you are a seasoned Strawberry family, I know that you are as excited as I am to be getting the kids back into a routine .  Whether a new PTA member or a returning member, we thank you for your contributions, time, and commitment to our organization, our teachers, and most importantly, our students!  As a member of the SPS PTA, you are a voice for our kids and part of the largest child advocacy program in the world.  It really is a rewarding experience!

    As I start my second year as your PTA President, I am looking forward to continuing the working partnership we have with the Mill Valley School District, our lovely Principal Mrs. Russell and our amazing teachers and staff.  We will continue to provide an excellent learning experience for our children with the support of our members.  I encourage each and every one of you to become a part of our team!
