Have a marvelous Monday,
Speaking of Convention, when your unit’s budget was approved, was there a line item for training or Convention? There should be! One of the most valuable things you can do for yourself is to participate in training. As a volunteer officer, you spend a lot of time trying to make sure that everything you are doing is for the children of your school and district; make your job easier by knowing how to be the best officer you can be. Training officers is ALWAYS a valuable use of PTA funds.October is nearly here, but that doesn’t mean your membership drive is over. There are still many opportunities to have a table or be a presence at numerous school activities throughout the fall. From Parent-Teacher Conferences to Homecoming events, make sure your PTA/PTSA is a presence and patrons know its not too late to join PTA. Announce your goals and achievements at your first PTA/PTSA meeting. Be sure to include articles in newsletters, email blasts and social media about what your PTA is accomplishing. Approach area businesses about helping out with Staff/Teacher dinners during conferences. Encourage leadership in your students by asking them to help with the school book fair or help in planning Homecoming activities. Check your membership roster and your bylaws. All of your officers and chair persons MUST be a member of PTA. Do you plan on applying for the 100% Faculty Award? Check your roster and see that all full-time Certified Personnel assigned to the building associated with your PTA, are members.
