The following is a letter from the PTO President about needing volunteers for next year…
Dear Stoddert Parents,
We need your help. The PTO requires lots of volunteers to support the school. This is the time of year when we select our leadership for the following year, including the board and committees. I know the calendar is full over the next few weeks and that you see that finish line at the end of the school, but we are already thinking and planning for next year and we can not do it without you!
I’m writing to invite you to the last 2016-2017 General PTO meeting, next Wednesday, May 24th at 6:30 p.m. Pizza and childcare will be provided. At this meeting, we will be voting in next year’s board. Several board members have decided to stay for the remainder of their two year term. I have also decided to serve the second year as well and I’m happy to have Lisa McCluskey join me on the slate as Co-President for this upcoming year. Thank you Lisa!
We have a few parents who will not be coming back after having served on the board this year (and some many years!). Thank you to Maria O’Donnell, Emily Russell, Melissa Loughlin, Rachel Mack, Meghan DeFord, and Nick Jacobs for all of the work you have done for the school as part of the board.
This brings me to my next point. We need parents to fill vacancies on the board,please let me know if you are interested in a position on the board (one of the LSAT positions, VP Membership, VP Special Project, and VP Advocacy). If you want to be on the board, email firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, May 22nd, so that we can add you to the slate which will be voted on in the May 24th meeting.
We also need parents to lead event committees. It’s easy to say that someone else will handle it, but when no one steps up, the event will simply not happen. We need someone to run the Welcome Committee, Back To School Potluck, Fall Festival and Stoddert Book Fair to name just a few. I would like to have volunteers in place before we leave in June, because let’s face it, those summers fly by. Please let me know if you can help out and lead a committee by June 1st.
Thank you for an amazing year. We have been able to accomplish a lot together and I look forward to how we will support Stoddert next year!
