Please join us in the Amerman Media Center on Wednesday, January 16 at 6:30 pm for our next PTA meeting. Mark your calendars for upcoming meetings by checking out the meeting schedule.
PTA Board Members Needed
Please consider becoming a PTA Board Member for the 2019-2020 school year. We have openings for PTA Treasurer (2 year term), 2 vice presidents (1 year term) and secretary (1 year term). Please contact Laura at firstname.lastname@example.org with inquiries. You can inquire without volunteering for a position!
With the temperatures getting colder, the loop is getting busier. The lines have become very long at drop off. In an effort to avoid children being late, please consider arriving to the loop earlier. As of lately, we have had more than 25 cars after the bell. In addition, we don’t have the volunteers to help the loop move faster. Please consider volunteering. We really need help. Also, please do not drop off your child when there is a not a loop attendant in position. For the safety of the children, we need to help them in and out of the car; especially with all the snow bags.
To avoid the drop off line extending onto 8 Mile; please use both lanes when dropping off. It is simply a “merging” lane. Please be courteous and let the cars in that are attempting to merge. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

If you have not yet placed your order, please use the following link to do so and follow the instructions given to enter your student’s information amermanspiritwear.com/pta (if you have trouble with the website, please make sure www. is not present).

After School Activities
Is your child's birthday coming up? Celebrate the occasion with a lunch date at school! This program is by reservation only and is completely voluntary. Families are invited to bring in a special lunch and/or treat to enjoy with their student at the birthday table in the cafeteria (aka Birthday Café) during their usual lunch period. Booking requests are preferred at least one week prior to your desired lunch date. The sooner you request, the more likely you are to get your preferred date! Thanks for your support of the Amerman PTA!!
Either sign up entirely online at MemberHub, or print and fill in the form located here (one per student), detach and send in the bottom portion with a donation of cash or check payable to Amerman PTA. Visit the Birthday Café calendar at amermanpta.com/birthday-café.html to view all available and booked lunch dates.

What is the PTA? Why become a member?
The PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is made up of parents and teachers who work together to enrich our children's lives. Joining and participating in events and donating your time are also great ways to make friends and get to know the people in your community.The number one reason to join the Parent Teacher Association is to benefit your child. In doing so, you also help your school. But there are many more PTA advantages:
Ready to join? Fill out the form online at www.amermanpta.com or on our Member Hub Directory. The membership form is also available online for printing.
The Northville Public School District requires that a background check via the Internet Criminal History Access Tool (iChat) with the Michigan State Police be conducted for individuals who school officials reasonably expect may have regular and continuous contact with students, or may at times be with students absent the presence of a school staff member. This may include but is not limited to: 1. pre-student teachers 2. field trip chaperones 3. regular volunteers 4. extra curricular group leaders 5. anyone handling cash or district funds.
Still need to fill out yours? It's accessible here.
