PTA BOARD NOMINATING COMMITTEE NEEDED - DEADLINE FEBRUARY 24

 

It is that time of year to look ahead to the new PTA Board Officers that will take over in May. In order to start this process, we need members to join the Nominating Committee. The nominating committee is one of the most important committees in our PTA unit.

 

  • The nominating committee's job is to find members who would be a good fit for each Board position available.
  • After someone has been found for each position, the committee presents this info during the March Membership meeting.
  • A vote will occur, and whoever takes over the new Board position will have the month of April and the last meeting of the year to get a head start. 

 

The Nominating Committee position requires a very short commitment. If you would like to participate in this aspect of finding new PTA board members, please contact Rima at volunteers@wyattpta.org by February 24th.

The Box Tops for Education program is changing the way we earn cash for Wyatt Elementary PTA! 

 

Over the summer, participating brands have begun to change their packaging from the traditional Box Tops clip to the new Box Tops label. Be sure to download the Box Tops for Education App and scan all of your grocery receipts!  The Box Tops found on your receipt are automatically credited to our school!

 

If you find the old unexpired Box Tops on products, please drop them off at the front office!  We will still be sending those in twice a year while they transition fully over to the app. 

 

Learn more about these changes at BTFE.com.
