You've seen the ads- its so easy, even Brett Favre and other sports stars can do it! Our Communications Chair, Jen Roth, is planning a meeting (after winter break) with hands-on overview of what's involved in keeping up with our PTA website.
No commitments, just a session to discuss the scope of work over next school year with anyone potentially interested in being Website Coordinator in tandem for the 2016-17 school year.
Questions or interest in attending the meeting, please contact Jen firstname.lastname@example.org
Our homeroom parent coordinators have gathered a wish list from each member of the Pattison staff for your reference throughout the year- for birthdays, thank yous, holiday gifts, etc. They have been updated and revised from last year, so please check back!
