A Letter From the PTA President

Hello!  My name is Sarah Heinz, and I am the Mohawk Elementary PTA president for the 2018-2019 school year. On behalf of the Mohawk Parent-Teacher Association (and our Mohawk PTA Board of over 45 parents…WOW!), I officially welcome you to the 2018-19 school year.

My family and I have lived in our home for almost twelve years now and have been blessed to be part of the Mohawk family for the past five years. I have three children currently at the school- a 5th grade son, a 3rd grade son and a 1st grade daughter.
I am excited as I enter this position with a unique perspective. I am a proud product of the Richardson Independent School District spending 13 years here as a student. I am a former 5th grade teacher in RISD, and I am currently a parent with children following the same path. That being said, serving in leadership with PTA will be a great way for me to continue investing in RISD - specifically the teachers, students and families of Mohawk Elementary.

For those of you who have already been a part of Mohawk, you know what a gift we have in this school.  For those of you new this year, you are in for a treat! Megan Cox, our amazing principal, does an incredible job leading and investing in our teachers and support staff. As a result, they are able to love, encourage and educate their students… OUR KIDS. Along with the school, we have an amazing community made up of Mohawk families, neighbors, businesses and alumnae that continually step up and consistently support us.

And, as we all know, the partnership between the school and community is imperative to our children getting the best foundation for their education both now and in the future. The first step in this partnership is having each of our families as a part of this organization. To make this happen, please sign your family (grandparents and neighbors) up for a PTA Membership and Annual Fund. After that, the *options are endless* in the ways you can serve and support our school.

From being in the background or being up front, from at home or at the school, from a one-time event or a regular volunteer position- we would love your involvement! Please look through this Mohawk PTA website, like our Facebook page (Mohawk PTA) or contact me directly with any questions on Mohawk, membership or places to serve.

Thankful for this opportunity and looking forward to an amazing school year!

Sarah Heinz
