Spring is officially upon us and it feels so good to finally enjoy the nicer weather!
As we head into the last two months of the school year, our responsibilities as PTA leaders do not lessen!
Here are a few reminders for you:
**April 17 & 18th is the MO PTA Spring Conference & Reflections Student Showcase in Independence, MO! This is an amazing opportunity to train your unit’s PTA leaders as they look forward to and make plans for the 2015-2016 school year. Please send your new leaders to this event. Training and networking will set them up for a year of success. Training is extremely valuable to our volunteer leaders and should always be a part of your unit’s budget. As we wind up this school year, please send your officers to training! The deadline to register for the Conference is tomorrow, March 31st, at 5pm. Use this link to register now!

**As you are getting ready to send your new officers to the Spring Conference, please remember to submit the 15-16 Officer’s Form to the state office by March 31st. It is important for MO PTA to have the most updated information on our units and councils, so that we can continue to supply units with resources and information. For those units that have a meeting scheduled to elect new officers, please submit the Officer’s Form once they are elected. Thank you!
**Missouri PTA is excited to share a very special PTA members only discounted price for the Kansas City Royals baseball game at 1:10pm on Sunday, April 19, 2015. Please be sure to use this Royals link in order to purchase your tickets!
**National PTA is hosting a webinar on March 31st at 7pm EDT, to learn all about the PTA Family Reading Experience and the 20 Kindle give-away! Apply now for a chance to receive a 20 Kindle classroom set. (Eligible PTAs must be affiliated with a Title I elementary school with a minimum 40% free and reduced priced lunch.
