Please join us in October for a special presentation and discussion by our Superintendent Dr. Michael Milliken regarding funding for our District and the District’s long term financial health. He will present and speak in the first half of the meeting, and we will limit the business aspect of the meeting to much shorter than the first meeting in September. :)  This and subsequent PTA meetings will be limited to PTA members only.
