Dear East-West Parents and Guardians,
The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) will hold its next meeting on Saturday, November 1st at 10:00 A.M. Please come and join the East-West School community for this important meeting.
Our meeting will begin with a light, complimentary breakfast. The business portion of the meeting is intended to give parents tools and information they can use to help their children get the most from their education. We will cover news and information specific to East-West from the PTA and the school administrators. We will also be conducting our annual membership drive. If you are parents of newly enrolled students, you will find our meetings to be an essential means for gathering information concerning your new school and meeting parents who can share their experiences with you.
At our first PTA meeting, we announced that we had an opening for an SLT parent member, and at our October PTA meeting, two parents (Wendy Giron and Anitra Michelle) graciously nominated themselves for the positions as another vacancy was also announced at that meeting. At this upcoming meeting, we will conduct our School Leadership Team Parent Member Election to officially elect the parents for the open positions. If you are interested in running for the SLT parent member position or if you are interested in running for PTA Vice-President which is still a vacant position, please let us know, and we will add your name to the ballot. You must attend the meeting to be elected for either position.
Also, there will be a brief presentation from a representative from Apple Bank regarding "How to Open Student Bank Accounts." She will also be available to answer other banking related questions as well.
And finally, we always allow plenty of time for a question and answer period so that the concerns of the parents can be addressed by the school administration.
We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, November 1, 2014.
