President's Welcome Letter


Dear Audubon Eagles,


Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year at Audubon Elementary School! It is an honor to serve as this year’s PTA president, marking my ninth year as a member of the Audubon community. This year, I want to focus on engaging our families and welcoming new volunteers, so that the PTA can continue to support the programs and experiences at Audubon that enrich our students’ lives and foster our sense of community as Audubon Eagles.  I look forward to meeting all of you as we march our way through the school year!


My family started at Audubon in 2015, when our oldest daughter entered transitional kindergarten. We originally moved to Foster City so that our children could attend public schools here and have the benefits of a small(ish) town with the excitement of San Francisco still at our doorstep. Foster City made the most sense to us as my husband was raised in Foster City and attended school at Audubon!  At Audubon, we found much more than a great school -- we became a part of a dedicated community of teachers, staff, parents, and students that opened its arms to us. Each of my four children have or do attend Audubon, from transitional Kindergarten through their 5th grade promotion. Our oldest daughter, still close friends with many of her Audubon TK pals, will be a seventh grader at Bowditch this year; our middle daughter is a rising 5th grader; and our twins will be rising Audubon 3rd graders.  


Audubon is a school like no other, and we rely on support from parents and community members to sustain the PTA programs that make our school exceptional: spirit weeks, the Spelling Bee, the Book Fair, Literacy Week, PTA Reflections Program, Math Night, STEM Fair, the Writing Notebook, Donuts with Grown-ups, Staff Appreciation Week, the Talent Show, back to school and end of year socials, support for the librarian/extra hours, support for our technology teacher, and cultural events and experiences (among others!). The PTA’s ability to fund these programs and many others is possible only because of the generous donations of time, expertise, and funds by Audubon teachers, staff, parents, and the community, and there are always opportunities to participate in big and small ways, from home and at school. So, I invite you to join the Audubon PTA and get involved! We cannot do this without you! Thank you for helping in any way you can and showing our students that they, their school, and their education are important.
