General Membership Meeting

You’re invited to attend the next PTA General Membership Meeting on Monday, April 16 at 7pm. This informative meeting will cover the following topics. It will be interactive and a time for you to ask questions.

  • See the Maker Space – come view demonstrations from several students, plus get a chance to explore this new interactive classroom
  • Review the Budget and Teacher Survey
  • Vote on Standing Rules – there are several proposed revisions to the Briarwood PTA Standing Rules
  • Vote on PTA Slate – the Nominating Committee has completed the placement of PTA Executive Board and Chairs for 2018-2019

The Standing Rules (with proposed revisions marked in red) and the 2018-2019 Slate are available at the links above for your review prior to the meeting.

In addition, the PTA is seeking input from parents prior to the meeting. Please complete this short survey. We’d love your thoughts on how the PTA can best serve the Briarwood community, which events you like, and more.

We hope to see you on Monday, April 16 at 7pm.

Thank you,
Chris Lash, Nancy Batdorf, Erika Saleski and Allison Taylor
