PTA positions and committees

Welcome Parents & Families to Mission Hill

2014-2015 PTA Officers and committee leads

The PTA is more than meetings.  We need help from parents in many ways including building a garden box, maintaining the website, helping with dances and other events onsite which can be creative work or just moving heavy boxes.  All help very much appreciated by your children.  

Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of every month at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room. Everyone is welcome - we hope to see you there!

First meeting of the 2014-2015 school year will be September 2, 2014

Roles, responsibilities and definitions of positions

President
With the help of a binder full of information from past presidents, you will run meetings, communicate with the community for fund-raising and other events, reach out to parents.  Agenda is submitted to members via email and website.
 
Vice President
Mainly an assistant to the president, you can also be spokesperson at events if needed.
 
Secretary
Takes minutes of the meetings and distributes to PTA members. Currently this is done via the website. 
 
Treasurer
Keeps track of all monies coming in and going out.  Responsible for once a year audit.
 
Parlimentarian
Makes sure the rules are followed. 
 
 
 
Hospitality Chair
Hospitality has two main components: staff/teacher breakfasts, and the end of year lunch.  Use "Signup genius" account with volunteer info to send out all calls for breakfast items and help.  Current Hospitality has account information.
 
•Hospitality plans and delivers breakfast for teachers ~5/6 times a year….from August through May.  Coordinate with the principal and her assistant, regarding best dates. They put them on the calendar and make announcements that morning. I tended to do alternate bigger breakfasts with a smaller coffee/bagels one. 
 
Here's what we did for the 2013/14 school year:
 
August 28 - Back to school planning meeting breakfast (day before school starts) big
 
November 16 - Friday before Thanksgiving big
 
Friday, December 14 (before winter break, smaller coffee and bagels)
 
Thursday, February 14, Valentine's Day - big
 
Friday April 11 - right before or after spring break smaller
 
Friday, First full week of May - National Teacher Appreciation Week - this year am doing sundaes during the Wednesday Staff Meeting (discount from Mission Hill Creamery)
 
Wednesday, June 11 - Staff/Teacher Luncheon (this is the only midday event, starts at 1:00 PM).
 
•We also organize the teacher/staff appreciation luncheon which is the biggest, most complex event. 
 
If there is community day or other large scale events Hospitality might also get tapped to be involved. Those are generally bigger than the scope of the committee.
 
Occasionally, we also bring snacks for the PTA meetings.  
 
All purchases can be reimbursed by keeping receipts and handing them in with a reimbursement sheet to the Treasurer.
 
Communications
Help with school web page and school communication via School Loop and other avenues.
 
8th grade dance
Last dance of the year.  Needs coordination and meetings from about January.
 
Yearbook
Plan and organize the yearbook layout
