Matthew Turner Families,
We hope that you will join us next Friday, September 6, 2019 from 6:00 - 8:00 at the Benicia Community Park for our annual Back to School Picnic.
Bring the family, some dinner (order it to the park or pack it in a basket - whatever works!) and meet your students classmates, their families, and friends.
We will have music from DJ Tom of Groove Tonight, Face Painting by Ms. Anna Lea Rice, and more!
In order to ensure everyone receives the same information on PTA happenings and current events at the school, we've added this new blog feature to the PTA website!
We realize that not everyone uses social media, and since we use our Matthew Turner PTA Facebook page for announcements, reminders, and to share information, we don't want to leave anyone out.
Now you'll be able to come to the Blog section of this website, and see the same information that is being posted to the PTA Facebook page, even if you don't use Facebook. So watch this space and check back regularly to stay up to date on all things Matthew Turner PTA!
