PTA News: Feb. 11, 2016

High Tech PTA Newsletter

Dear Families:

This week’s PTA News is dedicated to our upcoming call for Executive Members nominations. The PTA Board is made up of the four executive members: president, vice president, secretary and treasurer and the five standing board members: fundraising, community, communication, nominating and membership.

At the February 17 general PTA meeting, our Nominating Chair will ask for nominations for our four executive members: president, vice president, secretary and treasurer. Please come ready to nominate someone you know (they MUST be present) or yourself for one of these positions — no prior PTA board experience required.
