The PTA needs you!
Each PTA Board position carries a term of two years and may be held for the entire two-year period or switched to another position after one year. A PTA member holding an office may also run for another position yearly if they wish but a PTA member may not hold the same position for more than two terms.
The PTA needs to fill two positions, Vice President and Treasurer, for the 2018-2019 school year. Positions will be voted on May 1, 2018, at the PTA meeting beginning at 6:30pm. You may nominate yourself or another person by writing to the president, Jamie Dilorenzo.
Please consider serving as our PTA is stronger when we have new voices with new ideas at the table. If you would like to nominate yourself or another person, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
