Meet Mr. Furukawa our newest edition to the Emerald Park P.E. team! He has been teaching since 1981, 36 years!
He loves teaching Floor Hockey and is going to be helping with Volleyball this year. Sign ups coming soon for this. He is apart of the PTSA and has some amazing wisdom to share and ideas to make events great. We are so glad to have him join EP this year.
I asked him how he knew he wanted to be an educator. He replied with:
"I knew I wanted to teach/work with young children since I was in Jr. High. I also love sports so it made since to become and Elementary PE Specialist."
He loves seafood so no worries about teacher potluck items, he will love it!
He enjoys taking photos and would love to one day go to Alaska for a photography vacation. (Isn't it cold here already Randy? lol)
We can't wait to work with you at upcoming events! EP is going to rock this year!!! Go Navigators!!!
There are a few spots left this year to support specific events and all year projects and we want you! PTSA is the largest advocacy for students and the programs that we support to give kids things like sports equipment, music, and art lessons at EP.We do understand that the $12 to join the PTSA may be a lot for some families to spend on anything but the necessities and that is OKAY. One special parent has donated SIX memberships this year to give to parents who want to volunteer but cannot afford the membership fee. If you have the time we have the support to make it happen!. Email us at email@example.com if there is an event or position that you would like to help make a success this year!!!
UPDATE. WE HAVE A POPCORN CHAIR PERSON AND A NEWSLETTER CHAIR!!!!
We know that supporting programs for your kids that they LOVE going to is of course at the top of all parents priority list BUT lets be honest, the other perks are AMAZING!!!!!Did you know that as a member when you volunteer at the book fair you get a discount on book fair purchases?!?!? WHAAAAA
Let's ALSO mention all the amazing companies that partner with the state and national PTSA organizations to say thank you to all the volunteers who support their schools! Check out the LIST of places you can save when you become a member of the PTSA here at EP!
