Please note the following best practices for a group video conference:
 
  1. Zoom is free. Meetings are best viewed with a local Zoom client (app) instead of through your browser. If you haven't done so yet, go here to download Zoom

  2. Please wear headphones if possible. Sound coming from your computer speakers can be picked up by your microphone and cause feedback. A separate mic is also preferable, but not crucial. 

  3. You will be muted upon entry into the meeting. Please only unmute if the moderator calls on you for a question/comment. If you need to unmute just for a quick comment, you can press and hold your spacebar for a "push-to-talk" feature. 

  4. By default you will be in "Speaker View" which shows a large video of the person who is speaking and smaller thumbnails of everyone else. To see everyone at once, select "Gallery View" in the upper right-hand corner. To see up to 49 people on one screen in Gallery View, go to the gear under your profile in the Zoom app, and enable that feature under Settings:Video.

  5. The meeting will be moderated by members of the PTA Executive Board and will be hosted by PTA Co-presidents Genevieve Simard and Negar Treister.

    At some point we will open the floor to general questions. Remember when you ask your question to unmute yourself and turn on your video. 

Once again, the link to join the meeting is here. Please remember to RSVP, and we look forward to seeing you!
