One Hundred Forty Five Doors

A person was visiting a medieval dungeon with 145 doors and got stuck. Nine,

shown by black bars, are locked, but each one will open if before you reach it,

you pass through exactly 8 open doors. You don’t have to go through every open

door but you do have to go through every cell and all 9 locked doors. If you enter

a cell or go through a door a second time, the doors clang shut, trapping you.

The person (in the lower right corner cell) had a drawing of the dungeon. He

thought a long time before he set out. He went through all the locked doors and

escaped through the last, upper left corner one. What was his route? (nctm.org)

What if next school year there was no Willington PTA?

What does the PTA do for our schools each year???

∙ Raises funds that are dispersed for various events to benefit the

students of both CES and Hall School. ∙ Gives 100% of raised funds to the schools. ∙ Operate a \$10,000 annual budget. ∙ Provides each Center school student with a grade specific t-shirt for use

throughout the year. ∙ Gives every student funds towards field trips. ∙ Enrichment money for special presentations such as the Chinese acrobats

and the Internet Safety Presentations. ∙ The Center School Yearbook, which captures a school memory for every

student, is created by parent and teacher volunteers. ∙ Raises funds to purchase school equipment such as lighting for our

concerts and performances at Hall school and recess equipment for our children.

∙ Plans and holds events for the teachers and staff including the holiday cookie buffet and teacher appreciation week.

∙ Coordinates and plans fun and memorable social events for the entire school community such as dances, bowling, ice cream socials, the fun run and 5K etc.

∙ Funds the stores at both schools. ∙ Solicits donations from town business to assist with social events. ∙ Collects and processes Box Tops for Education to raise money for the

PTA budget.

This is all achieved every year by volunteers.

Parents just like you who are:

∙ Willing to give a few hours of their time. ∙ Willing to use their creativity and talents. ∙ Willing to ensure our children's school years are an amazing experience. ∙ Willing to share their opinions and ideas for the benefit of our

children.

Are YOU willing to give your time to help our schools strive for the excellence our children deserve?

Membership Meetings are once a month for 1 hour. Sadly this year at most meetings there were less then 8 members in attendance. With more volunteers, the PTA can achieve so much more for our children! MANY HANDS MAKE LIGHT WORK. This year the work has been heavy with very few hands. IF THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH PARENTS WILLING TO VOLUNTEER, THE WILLINGTON PTA WILL BE DISSOLVED BEFORE THE NEXT SCHOOL YEAR. There will be no extra funding, no Daughter Dance, no Sons Bowling, no field trip money, no CES yearbook, and no enrichment money for special events and equipment. The Willington PTA Nominating Committee is seeking those interested in being nominated for the following positions:

President: Preside at all meetings of the Willington PTA, serve as an ex-officio member of all committees except the nominating committee and coordinate the work of the officers and committees of the Willington PTA in order that purposes may be promoted.

Vice President: Act as an aide to the President and perform such other duties as may be provided for by these bylaws prescribed by the parliamentary authority or directed by the Executive Board.

Treasurer(s): Co-Treasurer will have designated roles (A or B). Role A: Have custody and maintain a full account of fund and keep a full and accurate account of receipts and disbursements. Role B: Create and maintain the budget using a template and create and present monthly treasurers report.

Secretary: Record minutes of all meetings of the PTA, keep file of all minutes and agendas and have a current copy of bylaws available at all PTA sponsored events. Membership Chair: Coordinate annual Ice Cream Social and Membership Drive, solicit new members and maintain membership listings and committee volunteers and any newly added throughout the year.

The Willington PTA will be electing officers for the 2015-2017 2 year term on Tuesday May 19th at 6:30 pm during the Monthly Membership meeting

at the Willington Public Library.

If you would like our schools to continue to benefit from the PTA’s work and have an interest in filling one of the above positions,

please contact a board member before May 19th. We would be happy to provide you with more information on ways you can help

and direct you to our nominating committee.
