New PTA Executive and Non-Executive positions will be elected at the next PTA Meeting, Thursday, May 16, at 630 PM at our school. We hope that many of you will come out and participate in this meeting and run for a position, so that we can have a truly democratic election that is open to everyone.
We are all aware that our school's budget situation, regarding our Enrichment Programs, is dire. The current PTA has worked with extreme doggedness to pick up the fundraising slack, especially this spring, as new families pitched in.
But we need you. A PTA executive board and the surrounding positions comprises a small group; not enough people to bring in the fresh ideas, resources, and energy our children need to keep programs going, and have fun, community building events throughout the year.
All positions can be co-appointed, which is ideal for a more manageable distribution of tasks and responsibilities.
Please examine the list below closely. These are the parents who are prepared to run for PTA positions, but by no means is this a done deal, and as you will see, a number of positions are vacant or will be! You and your friends and other parents you know are invited to run for any of these positions, and we really want you to come to the meeting! Get in touch with us through the contact page about volunteering in any way you can, and committee building for upcoming events.
