☐ January General Membership Meeting Recap

Thank you to all the members and community members who were able to attend our General Membership Meeting last night (Thursday 1/19).  We approved funding to support classroom calming corners, voted in a nomination committee, and learned about some of the exciting programming we have coming up this spring. 

 

A huge thank you to Elizabeth A, Nina W. and Surabhi T. for volunteering to serve on the Nomination Committee this year!  

 

We are looking for one more PTSA member to serve on our Financial Review Committee.  This three person committee reviews PTSA finances and records to make sure everything is in order.  No experience necessary, there is a very comprehensive and easy to follow check list to guide you.  Requires only about 3 hours two times a year. Email president@alcottpsta.org if you'd be willing to help out. 

 

We look forward to seeing you at our next General Meeting this spring. Members have a voice and a vote at the meetings.  Join today!

☐ Yearbooks - A Lifetime Memory

What is a Yearbook?

A yearbook is a school year in pictures. In addition to the official school photo of your child and their class, we collect photos throughout the school year from families, teachers/staff and our Alcott PTSA yearbook team. Our volunteer Yearbook Lead uses all these photos to create a memory book of the school year. Yearbooks are sent to print toward the end of April and are distributed to students who have purchased a yearbook in June.  

 

Additionally, the yearbook supplier we use provides families the option of creating two free personalized pages, so you can be sure to have your child and their friends featured in their yearbook. This option is only available until April.
