Unfortunately this year’s ice cream social/meet your teacher night had to be cancelled due to MNPS scheduling issues. So please plan to attend the August 22 PTO Open House/Invest Kick off from 6-7:30 pm. Meet your student’s teaching teams, and come early to check out and sign-up for JT Moore’s wide array of before/after schools clubs. The clubs fair starts at 5:15pm outside the front doors.

There are many more exciting events planned for this night, including the amazing performance by parents and faculty for our Invest Campaign Kick-Off* and, of course, the one and only Spring Drama Reveal!  This event is not to be missed.

*If you would like to be part of the Invest Kick-Off, please email Robb Bigelow.

Fall Matador funding requests due
Sep 7 all-day

Matador funds are potentially available for any parent, teacher, or staff member looking for financial support from the PTO for projects that directly advance the school’s strategic plan.

Applications should provide as much background information about the project’s needs and how it will benefit the school, why the PTO should fund this (as opposed to other funding sources) and  cost data about the products needed to execute their plan.

Applications for Matador fund requests are reviewed and voted upon by the Matador Fund Committee – made up of the executive principal, 2 additional teacher, the PTO president and treasurer, and selected parent representatives. Proposed projects are reviewed based on merit and impact to the school as a whole.  (Note that the acceptance and review of requests is dependent on PTO monies being available.)

Application forms are available HERE

Green Hills Park – tennis courts update

from the Friends of Green Hills Park

Friends, your voices have been heard. The Parks Department tells us that Green Hills Park is at the top of the list for court resurfacing! But there is a big catch – they have to receive the funding.  Last year, Parks received $10M for deferred maintenance in the budget. This year, it is not clear whether they will get that funding. Or if they do, it may not come until after October (which would likely push the resurfacing to spring, due to the cool weather).

Part of the problem is that the courts have deteriorated so badly that instead of repainting (at a cost of $4-5K/court), they need resurfacing ($40K/court).  So the cost of resurfacing Green Hills Park courts is likely $120,000.  We’ll keep you posted as Metro goes through its budget process in the next two months.

Do you know the history of the park?  It was part of John Trotwood Moore’s estate, known as Arden Place.  The estate was torn down in the late 1960’s to build the school and park.  We’ve found a few articles on this history, which are shared here. Have more info on the history of the park? Email us at friendsofghpark@gmail.com
