Dear Parents/Guardians:

The PTA thanks all of you who have participated in expressing your feelings about your preference to the PTA meeting times. As a result of your participation, the PTA meeting time will remain unchanged. As the by-law states:

“The general membership meetings of the association shall be held monthly: September, October, April, May, June, on the third Wednesday of these months at 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm and November, December, January, February, and March at 8:30 am – 10:00 am, unless such date falls on a legal or religious holiday, in which case the meeting shall be held on the following or previous day of the week, as determined by the executive board.”

This will take in effect immediately. So, the December PTA meeting will be our first meeting that will be held in the morning at 8:30 am – 10:00am.
