PTA leaders - have you filled out the Officer List?  See the link below in the Membership article for the Officer List.  If you are a PTA leader from the 2015-2016 school year, please make sure to assist the incoming leaders by filling out the Officer List so we can contact current leaders directly.
PTA members - be sure to join and support your PTA.  You may be able to join and donate time to your school or you may support your school financially by joining the PTA.  Your school needs and appreciates your financial support and your assistance during special projects and programs.
