We are so thankful to the many new volunteers who stepped up this year to lead projects and programs for our PTA! We now have strong teams and experienced volunteers for so many of our favorite activities, events and programs, such as Fall Festival, Book Fair, Yearbook, and more! We will always continue to need new volunteers to learn about these programs and part of these teams!
But now it’s time to look for new volunteers to join our Executive Board! This important Team keeps our PTA functioning and sets Big Picture Goals for what we want to accomplish!
Are we raising enough money to fund our goals? Are our programs inclusive all of students, families, and grade levels?
How can we spend the money that our fundraisers generated to have the most benefit to our school campus, curriculum updates, exciting new STEAM Learning opportunities, and safety?
Want to work closer with our schools administration team to better understand how our teachers develop hands-on learning units and how our PTA can best support them?
How can we better structure our Board and Chair positions as our school and PTA continues to grow and change?
Our Board has 8 elected positions, and 1 appointed position. We also have 4 other chair positions which work closely with our board.
Elections will take place at our March 5th meting. At our January PTA Meeting, we will elect our “nominating committee”. This committee will review interested candidates and put together a list of recommended candidates with advice from our principal and parliamentarian by February 5th. This list is not final, as anyone can remove themselves, or nominate anyone, to the nominations during the Election on March 5th where the final election of each of the 8 positions will occur.
