|Frequently Asked Questions|
|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.
