If you have an interest in effecting change in your child’s school and a few hours a month to dedicate, then the PTA needs you! We invite you to be part of the parent-teacher leadership at Twinbrook ES. The Maryland PTA and the Montgomery County Council of PTAs (MCCPTA) provide free training and other resources.
Elections will be at the year’s last PTA meeting, Tuesday, May 7, 7pm. All current PTA members may vote. Please attend this important meeting. These elected board positions are required by our bylaws and a minimum number of 15 voting PTA members must attend. Nominees must be current PTA members. Not a member? There’s still time to join. Get our membership form at this web site or find one on the table in the school lobby.
• Vice-President, Membership
• Vice-President, Programs and Fundraising
• MCCPTA Delegate and Alternate (2)
Other ways to help:
We are also seeking volunteers for our Latino Outreach Committee. In the past this has been a standing committee and the chairs (or co-chairs) have been voting board members. In addition, we are seeking a Volunteer Coordinator to help recruit volunteers and track their hours.
Not ready to join the board? Consider chairing an event next year and get a head start on planning for next year—these include Earth Day, Book Fair, International Night, Teacher Appreciation, Bingo Night, individual fundraisers such as bake sales, and more. These events can’t happen without your help.
For more information, or to nominate an individual (including yourself) to the 2013-2014 Twinbrook ES PTA board, please contact Stephanie Diaz, Nominating Committee chair, no later than Friday, April 26.
