2. Special PTA Meeting

An email was sent out to all PTA members yesterday, but in case you missed it: A special meeting has been scheduled for Tuesday, November 29th at 6:00 p.m. in the LRC to discuss the Teacher Wish List for 2016.  There have been some comments and concerns brought to the PTA board about the list and we would like to provide everyone the chance to discuss the wish list AND vote on the wish list at this meeting.  We will need to reach quorum and hope to keep the meeting under an hour.  Babysitting will be provided in the activity room.  If you have any questions, please email Karrie Donat or Carla Giannelli.  A link to the current wish list can be found HERE.
