January 6, 2023 - Message from the Woodlawn PTA
Message from the Woodlawn Elementary PTA!
The Woodlawn PTA is up and running. We have 26 fully paid members, our insurance is back in force, the bank account is operational, and the Member Portal is fully operational. Your Officers will hold an organizational meeting in mid-January, but we have not been idle. We will initiate a membership drive and a fundraiser starting in January. No one likes fundraising, so we selected the perfect non-fundraiser project. It is a shoe drive. We will collect bags of gently used and new shoes for developing nations. We will get paid per pound based on how much we collect. The more we collect, the more we make per pound. The great thing about this fundraiser is that no one is asking for money, and we can get our family and friends to send in shoes too. We have other ideas such as “Movie nights,” “Parent’s night out,” “Taco truck Fridays,” and “After school activities.” We will have committees responsible for each activity. This is an excellent opportunity for a small group of friends to take on one specific task. If you have any ideas, please let us know.
Meanwhile, please join your PTA now. What do I get out of it? Your PTA works to give you more afterschool activities for you and your kids, more assistance in the school, and better communication overall. Whenever we put on an event such as movie night or parent’s night out, PTA members participate for free while nonmembers must pay a fee. Often times the fee will be equal to the cost of a PTA Membership.
How much is a PTA Membership? It is $10 for an individual or $13.75 for a family (family membership provides 2 voting memberships). Where do I sign up? Go to this website; https://woodlawnespta.memberhub.com/store. What if I have more questions? Contact any of your PTA Officers. If they don’t know the answer, they will work to find you the person that does.
