PTA Meeting Next Wednesday
We will have our 1st PTA Meeting next Wednesday, September 16, 2015 at VSSA starting at 4pm in room 203. We would love to have a great turn out of parents at the meeting.
This will be a informative meeting to discuss what our goals are for this upcoming year. Please attend this meeting and get involved with your PTA. We need help from the parents to make VSSA the best it can be.
We will be voting in the PTA officers for the 2015-2016 school year. As of now it stands:
President ~ Jacqueline DeScisciolo
Vice President ~ Stacey Birtwhistle
Secretary ~ Christine Lawton
Treasurer ~ Susan Okurowski
We still need a parent to volunteer to lead Teacher Appreciation Week in May and to arrange the staff & teacher birthday list sign up sheet.
Thank you to the parents who have reached out to help and if you haven't received a response back, please contact me directly.
Thanks again for your support!
