Our Petit PTA has decorated the tree with care, in hopes that your gifts will soon be there! Thanks to you, our first week of Christmas Giving Tree wish distribution has been a resounding success.

Please remember that all wrapped gifts must be returned by Wednesday, 20 November. Almost all of our wishes have been claimed, but if you would still like to make this Christmas special for those in need, we are also accepting monetary gifts (125pln suggested).

The Charity Committee will be using these donations to purchase shared gifts such as educational games, books, and wall decor for our partnered orphanage in Krakow.

In addition to our Christmas Giving Tree initiative, the PTA has teamed up with TBS students and the Warsaw Volunteer mission to provide meals for the Warsaw hungry. There are several ways for you and your children to become involved. We will be looking for volunteers to make soup or sandwiches, supervise students preparing meals, bake cookies, serve meals, or donate napkins and plastic spoons. If you are interested, please visit the following website to sign up. We will be sending out more information about the Soup Kitchen next week.

 

Finally, be on the lookout for our upcoming events calendar. There are lots of exciting things coming up including a Burns Night Supper including dancing, scotch tasting, and of course, Haggis! Show up in your kilts or be tartan fettered!

Getting to know Olivia Squyres

 

Where would you call home?

I’m proud to be from the American South! Dallas, Texas is my permanent home of record, but I feel at home anywhere “y’all” and “bless your heart” are used frequently.

What languages can you speak?

I am almost  fluent in English.

What brings you to Warsaw and what was your journey to get here?

My husband is a European-focused Foreign Area Army Officer assigned to the Embassy here in Warsaw. We were in Germany before Poland, and Washington DC before Germany. Where will we be next? Your guess is as good as mine.

Who have you got at school here?

My older daughter, Lena, is in Year 7, and my younger daughter, Evie, is in Year 4.

Any other children?

Not that I’m aware of, but the 2000’s were a crazy time.

Any pets?

No fur pets, but plenty of pet peeves.

How did you get involved in the PTA?

I asked to be! It was that simple. I started as a Class Friend and then became the Communications Coordinator.

What do you do with the PTA?

I am on the Communications Committee. I help moderate the Facebook pages and write the weekly blog. At times I can also be found behind the curtain of Pani PTA emails.

Best thing about volunteering with the PTA?

To be sure, the friendships are invaluable, and the work fulfilling. But what I especially appreciate about our PTA is the freedom and support our volunteers are given to begin their own initiatives and work within their areas of strength. For example, my background is in Public Relations and Communications, but when I first joined the PTA, there were no volunteer opportunities for that. I asked to start the PTA Facebook pages and put together a communications team, and the PTA Committee was incredibly supportive.

What would you say to somebody thinking about volunteering for the PTA?

Do it! No one ever regrets spending too much time or effort on their children’s lives. If you see a need we’re not meeting or have any special backgrounds or talents you’d like to use, let us know!

What’s your favourite thing to do with your family in Warsaw?

A typical Squyres Family Fun day includes a little something for each of us- brunch for me, an outdoor activity for Daniel, a bit of shopping for Lena, and for Evie? Early bedtime.

Can you tell us a joke?

What do you call a blind buck (stag)?  I have no eye deer!
