PTA MEETING MINUTES
“The work PTAs do is vital to the health of our schools and the education of our children. For a PTA to become and remain healthy, it must find ways to engage members and nonmembers alike in working to improve the educational environment for students. By recruiting volunteers, helping them succeed, and continuing to motivate their efforts, PTAs can ensure their units remain an effective and active voice for children, families, and education.”
As opportunitites arise, the Longview PTA will reach out to parents who submitted volunteer forms at the beginning of the year. If you are interested in being more involved or would like to know what opportunities are available, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
