Please Join the 2020-2021 PTSA Fall Fundraising Now 


Fall Fundraising Drive 2020 - Latest Update 

We officially started the Fall Fundraising Drive 2020 on 09/10/2020. After only one week of fundraising, we have already raised $31085. Thank you to all Somerset families who have already donated to the Fall Fundraising Drive. Please keep giving to make us reach the goal for 100% donation rate and make our community stronger.

We invite all families to participate in this campaign, because your contribution—no matter the amount—makes a big difference to our children especially this year!

Back-to-School Ice Cream Social walk-by
Friday, September 25th from 4:00 - 6:00 pm 
Please come to our PTSA  "Welcome Back-to-School Ice Cream Social walk-by" at Somerset Elementary. We will give out ice cream to every student who presents an ice cream ticket. Please print your ice cream ticket at home following this LINK or this LINK, depending on the number of tickets you need.   
The ice cream will be handed out in the teacher parking lot. Look out for the Fun Times Ice Cream Truck. For safety purposes we’re asking families to stop by at their designated time, based on the student's last name. Please wear a mask. We are excited to see you again!

Art Club Co-chair Needed

We are looking for an interested parent to volunteer as the art club co-chair. We have a wonderful and talented parent who has a teaching degree in art who would like to bring art to our students but would need a co-chair to run the program. Please email if you are interested and/or have questions about this co-chair position. 

Curriculum Night

This year, Somerset is providing a virtual curriculum night that will be pre-recorded for you to view at a convenient time. Classroom teachers will send their presentation to families the afternoon of Wednesday, September 23, 2020.
