A Great Opportunity to Volunteer From Your Home: PTA Newsletter Coordinator
The SMS PTA is looking for a writing rockstar to help manage our PTA newsletter. This is a position that can be done entirely from home and training would be provided. You would receive emails from weekly contributors that you would edit and fit into the newsletter and then send it out to a distribution list once a week, usually on Mondays. You would also maintain the email distribution list by adding/ subtracting parent emails as needed. All tasks associated with this position can be done at your own pace, at a time that is convenient to you- since it is completely done from your computer.

Announcing New VP of Services and VP of Operations
The SMS PTA would like to announce that Michelle Wadhwa has been voted in as the VP of Services on our executive board of directors for this school year! Thank you Michelle for taking on a board position and for your service to the SMS PTA.
We are also excited to announce that we have filled our VP of Operations PTA board position with a track 4 parent :-) and our Legislature chair position. Yay!!
We still need a VP of Communications to complete our PTA board (see below) and are in need of several more volunteers to assist with upcoming fundraisers. If you would be interested in planning and implementing help at our PTA movie night (Oct 28th) please contact our fundraising chair: Louise Ebert at: email@example.com. We look forward to a fun and spooky night of fundraising and hope you'll join us.
SMS PTA Looking for VP of Communications
We still have the VP of Communications position open on the PTA board. No experience is necessary, just an interest in working with our team to provide opportunities for the students of SMS. The main requirement for both positions is the ability to attend the monthly board meetings which occur on the first Tuesday of the month at 7pm in the media center at SMS. Please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer for this very important (but relatively easy! :-) ) position. Thank you!
