Whittier Weekly -2/28/21

While its been a “quiet” year as far as the PTA goes, we hope that next year will be closer to a new normal with many more social and philanthropic opportunities for kids and families. Being a part of the PTA Board is a wonderful way to get to know Whittier families, and support our wonderful Whittier staff. 

We have a few open roles:

  • Co-Vice Presidents (2 people, for 2021-2022, become Co-Presidents 2022-2023 school year)
    • Attend Executive Board Meetings/General PTA meetings (most likely virtual for some time)
    • Shadow the Co-Presidents the first year (pretty low key)
  • Secretary (1 person, averages 1 hour per week)
    • Attend Executive Board Meetings/General PTA meetings (most likely virtual for some time)
    • Manage the Whittier PTA Mailbox.
    • Create and Publish the Whittier Weekly and other PTA Special Announcements
    • Prepare PTA Meeting Minutes, and publish on the PTA Website
  • Communication (includes Website and Directory, one person or a team)
    • Keep the PTA’s website updated, assist with sign ups as needed, and manage other communication tools such as the PTA’s Facebook page and Whittier Directory. Volunteers also work with other committee chairs on how to make timely updates on the website. Annually, the person responsible for the directory gathers the information and creates a printable directory. Ideally we could find a volunteer before the end of the 2020-2021 school year so that there is a gradual transition during the current committee chair’s last 2 years at Whittier.
  • Family Fun (1 to 2 people, Averages <1 hour per event)
    • Partner with local eating establishments to coordinate monthly Fundraisers for Whittier, and promote and advertise them in the school and community. Places in the past have included Mod Pizza, Culvers, Baked Apple, Five Guys, and McDonalds.
    • Use the proceeds from fundraisers to plan a Whittier community events. Past events have included “Last day of School” festivities, Whittier Roller Skating, and a Trampoline Park event.
  • Fall 2021 Fundraiser  (Can be 1 person, although multiple are welcome!)
    • While it seems early, this committee starts planning our Fall event late Summer. The event takes place in the Fall. Past events have included a Jaguar Jog, Color Run, and Scavenger Hunt, but always open to fresh ideas. 

Timing– Candidates will be nominated in April 13th PTA meeting and voted in May 18th PTA (final meeting of this school year). Roles start at the beginning of 2021 school year (August 2021).
