As we kick off the 2017-2018 school year, we have many positions that need to be filled. Many hands make light work!
For the PTA executive board, we need a legislative advocacy representative (LAR). PTA is a child advocacy association, its legislative mission is to speak on behalf of all children and youth at the local, state, and federal levels. The LAR attends a monthly meeting with CUCPTSA at the district office, speaks at our PTA meetings, and advocates for our students. The LAR may also want to attend school board meetings, can attend the Sacramento Safari Conference in February (PTA has set aside a budget line item to help pay for the conference), and can attend parent advisory meetings. If this is something that sounds interesting to you, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. I will give you the information I have and put you in contact with the previous LAR.
We also need a hospitality committee. The hospitality committee will work together to provide food at our meetings, provide food at our various events (Reflections Gallery Night, 8th grade reception, Teacher Appreciation Week) and help us recognize staff on their days (Professional Administrator's Day, Teacher Appreciation Day, etc).
In addition, if you would like to be on an email list for general help, please let me know. As we move along in the school year, I'm sure I will have plenty of opportunities for volunteers.
