First PTA Meeting

This Wednesday, September 12th, at 7PM we will be holding the first PTA meeting for 2012-2013.  Everyone is invited to join us in kicking off the new school year.

We are changing up the meeting format a little bit this year in an attempt to get the most out of our discussions and to respect the time of those attending.  The meetings will be broken into two sections.  The General Meeting will be held for the first half an hour or so.  This is the time when we will discuss business that involves the whole PTA and vote on any motions.  Afterwards we will break up into smaller committee meetings to allow those who are interested in a specific event or activity to focus on the required tasks.  The committees that meet will be different for each meeting depending on what needs to get done and the length of those meetings may be just a few minutes up to a half hour.

Since this is our first meeting we will be going over some housekeeping issues along with getting into the upcoming events.  Below is the agenda along with several other documents that will be handed out at the meeting.  Please take a moment to review them and let us know if you have any questions.

If you have any additional items that you would like added to the agenda please let us know.

Can’t Make the Meeting?

We hope to see you all there, however, we also know that many of you are busy on Wednesday nights.  That’s OK!  Meeting attendance is not required to be involved.

Some of our committee chairs and event coordinators are unable to attend the Wednesday night meetings but are still active in getting things done.  The key is COMMUNICATION.  Send us an e-mail, give us a call or track us down in the hallways and let us know you want to help.  We will find a place for you and keep you informed on what is going on.

Every parent is important and every parent has something to give to their students.  Let us help you make a difference at Wascher and in the lives of all our students.
