    Dear East-West Parents, Guardians and Staff,

    As a result of our PTA Expedited Election, we are pleased to announce that Ms. Sharlene Tillett is our new PTA Vice-President.

    Furthermore, the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) will hold its next General Membership meeting on Saturday, February 1 at 10:00 a.m.  Our meeting will begin with a light breakfast buffet followed by the business portion of the meeting.  In honor of the Lunar New Year, we invite all parents and staff to bring a small dish representing a HOLIDAY TREAT FROM YOUR NATIVE COUNTRY that can be shared and enjoyed by all at our meeting.

    The PTA and Principal, Mr. Sherman, and Assistant Principals, Ms. Bradsher and Mr. Chang, will present up-to-date news and information concerning the school.

    One important item on this month’s agenda is the PTA’s expedited nomination and election for School Leadership Team (SLT) Parent membership.  Due to changes in the SLT By-laws and some personal issues, we suddenly find that we have two open positions. We will open the floor for nominations for this position at this upcoming meeting and hold the election at our March meeting.  If there is anyone interested in running for this position or would like more information, please email us at pta@ewsis.org.  You must be present at this meeting to accept the nomination and run for office.

    We will also be voting on whether to recommend canceling classes for Middle School during the June Regents week to accommodate testing needs.

    And finally, we always allow plenty of time for a question and answer period so that the concerns of our parents can be addressed by the school administration.

    If you are willing to share a Holiday treat, please  email us at pta@ewsis.org .to let us know what you will be bringing to share.
