First PTA Meeting! Wednesday 7-8pm

Our First PTA Meeting will be in the MPR from 7-8pm this coming Wednesday, September 11th.  This will be immediately following the final classroom presentations on Back to School Night.  Because of the staggered presentations and parking we understand some may not be able to stay, so we will have a PTA info booth with introduction and Q&A in the Quad from 5:40-6:00pm between the two earlier presentation sessions.

The Meeting Agenda and Budget to be Adopted are available to view BELOW, along with a list and description of our open positions.   Our PTA is a non-profit business separate from our school and is run by volunteers.    We review financial transactions, budgeting, and programs with the mission to improve the well being and academic success of our students, families, and community.  There will be a window at the end of the meeting for anyone to propose new business or program ideas not already on the agenda.
