Dear Galileo STEM Academy Parents, Teachers and Administration,

In light of the uncertainty that this Fall brings to our homes and classrooms and the movement of PTA members to other school choices, your PTA has made a prudent decision to “freeze” the PTA until at least Jan. 11, 2021.

As we have done routinely in the past years, we have issued the classroom start up funds to all classrooms for the 2020-2021 school year to the West Ada Foundation in support of our teachers and ancillary staff.

In consideration of this unusual year and the fact that many of our PTA funded programs will not be able to commence due to West Ada District social distancing guidelines, we have elected not to host GIVE Week this Fall. This also means that we are not able to support teacher grants during the Fall.

The PTA bank balance will remain as is until the current Board votes to reinstate the PTA. The Board members still active at Galileo STEM Academy will convene prior to Jan. 11, 2021 to assess the option of opening our PTA funded programs.

We have several Board positions open that will be required to be filled before we can judiciously commence as a voting Board to consider reopening our PTA. Please consider raising your hand to support your Galileo STEM Academy in one of these positions. Email us at galileostempta@gmail.com for more information or to volunteer.

The Galileo PTA
