Dear Parents and Staff Members:
I would like to welcome all of you to the 2010-2011 school year. PASS (Persons Associated with Special Services), is the Manalapan-Englishtown Regional School District's Special Needs PTO. We will need your support since I have only 4 people on the board and no committees at this time to make our fundraisers and PTO a continued success. I do have a teacher liaison willing to help in each school to disseminate information to colleagues in their building.
This past year we gave 113 special ed teachers $175.00 a piece for a total of $19,775.00 to buy supplies from Lakeshore to help our students. PASS needs parental help to continue our mission of helping the special education students in Manalapan.
This year PASS information can be found on the district website under PPS then click on PASS or any meeting notices on channel 77.
PASS will continue to provide grants to our teachers which directly impact our children. This year we will give all resource, self-contained teachers, occupational therapists and speech teachers a gift certificate to Lakeshore Learning Center to buy whatever is needed for their classrooms. This will be funded by our Kid Stuff/Entertainment book sale.
Our fundraisers planned for this year are Kid Stuff/Entertainment books and school magnets which will be sold at back to school nights. Additionally, Kid Stuff books will be sold at each school on the following dates:
Pine Brook (flyer sale) Sept. 13 - 20, 2010
Taylor (flyer sale)
Sept. 13 - 20, 2010
Clark (flyer sale)
Sept. 29 - Oct. 8, 2010
Lafayette (flyer sale)
Sept. 27 - Oct. 5, 2010
Wemrock (flyer sale)
Sept. 27 - Oct. 5, 2010
Early Learning Center (flyer sale) Oct. 4 - 12, 2010
Milford (Entertainment book)
Sept. 13 - 21, 2010
There is an upcoming event of interest:
A joint meeting with the Freehold Regional High School District and other sending districts will be in November, probably 7 p.m. as usual at Freehold Township High School. The speaker will be determined shortly. This is free of charge.
Please help me in making this a memorable year for our children! If you can offer any time for any of the above fundraisers/event, please email me at
or call my home # (732) 863-0119.
We are looking forward to seeing you at our meetings and any events!
Barbara Juhasz (PASS PTO President)
