ARTHUR ZARR’S AMAZING ART CAR –

By Cathey Graham Nickell

SUMMARY: Arthur Zarr is a quiet man with few friends. His life is rather plain, and his car is plain, too. But not for long! Mr. Zarr finds happiness and makes friends by building an amazing art car. In this whimsical story, children learn about recycling, community, friendship building, and the power of imagination. The book includes a “History of Art Cars” page for readers who’ve never heard of this creative form of artistic expression. Children of all ages—and even adults—will enjoy the colorful story of Arthur Zarr. Hardcover book with dust jacket, 40 pgs, color illustrations.  © 2016. MSRP $19.99 + tax. ISBN: 978-0-9961150-0-1

PTA Standing Rules Update

Please plan on attending the October 5th General PTA meeting as we will be voting on updated Standing Rules.  At our February 2016 general meeting, the PTA approved updates that were subsequently submitted to the Texas PTA.  After review of our Standing Rules, the Texas PTA provided their feedback which needs to be taken into account for state approval.  The changes that are now proposed do not change the meaning of our Standing Rules but are more wording based.  Click here to review the proposed Standing Rules (Proposed Standing Rules).  Items highlighted in yellow will be removed.  Items highlighted in green are the new verbiage.

 

Thank you –

Jill Kolb, Suzanne Farrow, Keri Bassett
