ACTION TEAM MEETING
MEETING RESCHEDULED FOR 11/13 @ 6pm
Thank you for taking the PFPS. The PTA Action Team will meet Tuesday, November 13 at 6pm in the cafeteria.
Please feel free to join us and to share with other parents and neighbors who may be interested in joining us. As a reminder, at this meeting we will:
Review the baseline survey results and pick one focus area for family engagement that we plan to concentrate on in the upcoming school year: education, health & safety, or the arts. Within that broad focus area, we will choose one specific objective that best describes how we will support the efforts.
We are looking forward to getting together and getting started. Please contact Rachel White, email@example.com, if you have any questions or concerns!
