GHES PTA Call for Volunteers

Have your children enjoyed a movie night, book fair, after school activity, class celebration, or wearing Glen Haven attire? Do you count on the “Weekly Scoop” email to keep you up to date? Parent and community volunteers through the PTA make all this, and more, possible. PTA activities, led by volunteers, raise funding to support instructional materials your children’s teachers use; projects teachers undertake with students; and field trips. In addition, PTA organizes appreciation events for our wonderful Glen Haven staff.

To ensure these activities continue, we’re putting out the call for volunteers to help lead the PTA next year. We also need volunteers to assist those leaders. We’re holding a discussion on the many options for contributing to Glen Haven’s community, as well as PTA leadership positions. Please join us in the cafeteria on Tuesday, March 6 from

6:30-7pm for pizza and socializing and 7pm for the discussion. Child care will be provided for school-age children.

Below are brief descriptions of the leadership positions — feel free to contact anyone on the nominating committee if you can’t make the March 6 meeting or if you have any other questions. Whether you can contribute a couple of hours next year or might welcome a leadership role, your help will make a difference!

PRESIDENT: Presides at all meetings of the PTA and of the executive board and coordinates the work of the officers and committees of the PTA.

VICE-PRESIDENT (2): Acts as aide to the president and will supervise committees and their activities as assigned by the president.

TREASURER: Looks after the money!

SECRETARY: The secretary records the minutes of all meetings, keeps records and membership documents and performs other delegated duties as assigned by the president.

DELEGATE (2): Attends monthly PTA delegate meetings as Glen Haven’s representative. 

COMMITTEE CHAIRS
