Green Hope High School PTSA Needs You!
We are in the process of searching for officers, committee chairs and volunteers for the 2018-19 school year. There are many positions available that accommodate everyone with little time, or ample time, to give. Would you like to be ‘in the know’ about school news, happenings and events? If you are interested in serving or would like more information, please contact us.
Our nominating committee is looking for a vice president, a secretary and a treasurer. We also have several committee chair positions opening up as many senior parents move on with their college-bound students.
Below is a list of open positions for 2018-19. Please email us for more details. Our Standing Rules document has descriptions of the positions and committees and can be found at http://ghhsptsa.org/uploads/2015_ghhs_ptsa_standing_rules.pdf.
Better yet, our nominating committee members would love to speak with you and answer your questions about our group and its goals.
The PTSA is looking forward to another exciting year and we welcome your suggestions and your participation.
Welcome to Louise Ebert, our new VP of Ways and Means!
The SMS PTA would like to announce that we have a new VP of Ways and Means due to a recent vacancy in that position. Please join us in welcoming Louise Ebert to our board. This school year, Louise has planned, organized and implemented the PTA movie nights, the Pasta fundraiser, and is heading up our upcoming Color Battle fundraiser. She has done an amazing job to help obtain the funding our school PTA needs to function, and we are so grateful and blessed that she will finish our this school year as a PTA Board member.

Attention Parents of 8th Graders
It’s not too late to turn in fees for the 8th grade celebration and t-shirt. You will be able to pay for the activities and collect your child’s shirt before or after either of the two upcoming 9th grade information sessions taking place on January 22nd and February 15th at 6:30pm. In addition to cash and checks, payment can be made by debit or credit card.
We are planning activities to celebrate the end of middle school for our 8th graders. In keeping with tradition, this send-off will consist of several things:
Seeking PTA Volunteers for 2018-19
Our SMS PTA will begin seeking parent volunteers for our 2018/19 school year starting in January 2018. Please email email@example.com if you are interested in joining our PTA board or learning more about positions available.
We strive to allow our volunteers the opportunity to "shadow" and train with our current volunteers so the transition is smooth. Our board will be seeking a new secretary and treasurer (and possibly more) as these important positions are currently held by an 8th grade (graduating) parent.
We hope to hear from you!
