Dear Weatherstone Families,

Thank you for your support of the WES PTA this year!  Our PTA is dedicated to supporting our students and teachers through a variety of programs and events.  We are able to do all of this because of our aWESome volunteers.  In preparation for next school year, we are looking to fill all of our open positions by as soon as possible.

We have four PTA Board member positions that are elected by the PTA membership at the last General PTA meeting of the school year: President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer.  These positions begin on July 1 and end on June 30 and a person may serve only two consecutive full terms in the same office and they must be a member of the PTA.

Standing Committees Chairs (work occurs throughout the school year and are part of the PTA Board) and Special Committee Chairs (works occurs for a short period of time) are approved by the PTA Board.  Chair positions can also be shared with another PTA member and all Committee Chair positions must be held be PTA members.  Committee Chairs can recruit volunteers for their committee.

We are looking to fill the following positions for the 2017-18 school year and many of these positions work well with a Co-Chair.  Please contact Carin Scott at carinscott.pta@gmail.com or the current committee chair to volunteer for a position or for more information about any of these positions.
