PTA Board Members 2019-2020 – we need YOU! Deadline – Friday, 3/1/19

“Shrinking budgets. Increasing class sizes. Government mandates. The challenges of delivering quality education are daunting. There is help. It’s the PTA. 

… PTA addresses issues that are important to parents and public school administrators. We fight for full funding, quality teachers, and capabilities for schools to thrive. If your school or district does not have a PTA, now is the time. Membership is open to everyone. Your PTA is autonomous but supported by a national structure. It sets its own dues.” 

(as noted and best described by the National PTA website) – HERE

With the above mentioned we cannot stress enough how important and necessary that every year we fill every mandatory PTA Board position to ensure an optimized and well functioning team.

Our current open positions are:

  • President
  • Vice President
  • Membership
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Auditor
  • Historian

Also please note we also have Committee Positions:

  • Health and Safety
  • Jogathon
  • Sponsorship & Community Fundraising
  • Movies and Main Events
  • Hospitality/Staff Related
  • Programs
  • Restaurant Nights
  • Box Tops
  • Communications/Web/Social Media
  • eScrips/Passive Fundraising

Some of these key roles are limited to a 2 year term, therefor we need to ensure our Jonas Salk families are aware and get the opportunity to hold a position.  These are your child(rens) initial years of public education.  Our community has many parents who have the awesome skill-sets or desire to build these skill-sets for these open positions!  It’s such a great opportunity to play an integral role in molding your kid(s) elementary school experience!

As with fairly new programs and our site near completing its 4th school year ever… we are going through some growing pains.   Lessons are learned as we go and we continually strive to improve on these so that we build a standardized program that will only get better and better each year.   Our deadline for this years’ nominations/elections is tomorrow, Friday, 3/1/19.  

We need you Jonas Salk Elementary families!  Take a chance on making a huge difference on the lives of not just your children, but all of our Jonas Salk Elementary kids!  Join us.  Put your name in for consideration for the 2019-2020 school year.

Our annual Scholastic Book Fair Week starts this Monday 2/25/19 – Be ready!

It’s our annual Scholastic Book Fair this coming week!  Should any updates come in we’ll send that info out ASAP!

We recommend that you send your children to school w/ some cash on hand in case you cannot make it to Friday nights book fair time (5-6pm) before Movie Night happens. The students are going to also have the opportunity to shop the book fair during school hours when their class is assigned to go. Currently those days are set for either Monday or Wed this week so it may be best to ensure your child has funds ready Monday… plus they may see more great book deals that they may not have enough for during their class visit and would be looking to return either before or after school on those days noted in this event. =)

Location:  Jonas Salk Elementary Library

Times (outside of their scheduled class visits):

Monday, Tuesday, Wed and Friday: 7:15am-750am and 2pm-3pm

Thursday: 7:15am-7:50am and 12pm-1pm (due to minimum day)

Also, Friday night from 5pm-6pm (before PTA Board Elections for 2019-2020 (LINK if you’re interested) from 6pm-6:15pm and then Movie Night (starting at 6:15pm).

 

ADDITIONALLY…
We are in need of Book Staffing volunteers too! We may have shifts during school hours, therefor you MUST be cleared to volunteer w/ the front office.
