Thank you to all of the fantastic parents who have stepped up to volunteer for next year's PTA! It is wonderful to have new faces, and we look forward to electing all of our volunteers at our next general PTA meeting on April 28. We still have a few positions in need of volunteers, and training is available. 
 
Take a look at the following roles and see if they are a good fit for you! If you'd like to shadow a role or if you'd like to partner with another parent, let us know. We hope to finalize our slate of officers by March 25. If you are interested, or have questions, send a note to our Nominating Committe, at: parliamentarian@fairmeadowpta.org
