Is meeting attendance mandatory? We have just 5 general meetings a year and try to keep them to 60 minutes. While we encourage members to come to meetings, attendance is not required. Each meeting is well organized and consists of officer and chairperson reports as well as a principal’s report. By attending, you’ll get the ins and outs of what’s going on at our school. As a member, you’ll also have the opportunity to vote at our meetings.
Do I have to volunteer? No way. Volunteering is not required! We would love to partner with you in serving our school, however we understand that some of us just don’t have time for additional activities. There are little ways to help out, like making food for an event or helping at a book fair. We also have lots of leadership opportunities for those who want devote more time and develop new skills.
Ready to join? Please complete a membership envelope. You will find one in your red welcome folder or in our school’s main office. Be sure to include your email address, so we can contact you and keep you in the loop. We’d love to see you at meetings and events, but no pressure!
Dues are just $5 per person. Make checks out to “Bridgeport PTA,” please. Show your support by becoming a PTA member today! While you’re at it, please find and “like” us on Facebook.
