DURANT ROAD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PTA
PTA GENERAL MEETING ANNOUNCEMENT Durant Road Elementary School PTA would like to welcome you to our first PTA meeting for the 2018-19 school year to be held on Monday, July 23, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. in the school media center. You will be introduced to the PTA members and we will pass the budget for the new school year. We believe that parent involvement in school life is one of the many factors that enriches a child's learning experience and improves the school. Our mission is to help create a warm and caring community by being the bridge between family and school life. Getting involved in the PTA gives your child a voice. It shows them you care about their education and well-being. We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!
OWN THE SUMMER!30-day Pass for $10We intend to make this the best summer ever. From now until August 15, you can come in and get a Wild Card after (or when) you purchase your flight ticket. The Wild Card gets you a 1-hour admission into the park for the next 30 days. (Doing the math in your head? It’s $0.33 per day for one hour each. Yeah, it’s crazy.)How to get your Wild Card:
Your Wild Card is a pass that gets you into the park one hour every day for the next 30 days. You can purchase one at the park when you buy your flight pass (if you bought your flight pass online, just ask for the Wild Card when you check in at the park), and it’s non-transferrable (so back off, thieving friends!). Extra time and additional purchases are available at their regular price.
WCPSS is short $25.5 million based on budget provided by Wake County Commissioners.
