Often as parents we wonder about the programs that are running at the school. Are they meeting the needs? Are they good enough? Is enough being done? We may ask ourselves: "What are they doing about it?" or "When are they going to do such-and-such" or we may even wonder: "What are they thinking?"
You are "they." You, the parent of a Foothills student are "they" of the PTA. The P in PTA stands for Parents. All of us siting on the board are busy parents just like you. For most of us, a neighbor or friend begged us to come and serve with them and so we do. We are are "they."
We are begging you now. You don't need special skills, all you need is willingness. We need a President Elect to join us now and learn the ropes of PTA so that he/she will be ready to lead in 2011-2012.
So come make new friends. It's not as hard as you think. You may even have fun. And you will have the satisfaction that you've made a difference in the lives of lots of children.
If you have even a little interest in becoming part of the PTA board in any way contact the school who will put you in touch with the PTA president. Or leave a comment here on this site.
