We Need A President!

PTA_cartoonDear Parents and Seminole Elementary Staff:

On February 25, 2016, please come join the PTA for an important general membership meeting. It is not too late to join the PTA and help support our school. Membership forms are available in the front office, link to form below, or at our meeting that night. Yearly dues are $6, which also goes to support the Florida and National PTA.

At this meeting, we will be holding the elections of the nominating committee, which will be comprised of three PTA members, to make the recommendations for the upcoming elections of the PTA board for the 2016-2017 school year.

All elected positions, President, Vice-President, Treasurer, and Secretary, are for a one-year term. A person cannot serve more than three consecutive terms, or years, in one office. The current officers for Vice-President, Treasurer, and Secretary, are willing and eligible to continue for another term if elected, and have indicated a willingness to accept nominations for the 2016-2017 board in their current positions.

The President position cannot be held by the currently elected officer, as the current President has served for three consecutive elected terms. The PTA CANNOT function without the President position being filled. The qualifications to be the President is that you must be a PTA member and a registered volunteer. It is recommended that board members also be Level II screened, and the PTA has paid for that cost for the elected officers.

Serving on the PTA board is a wonderful way to make a difference in your child’s school. The PTA is responsible for so many things at the school, which could not happen without the PTA organization. The PTA sponsors the yearly planners, Times for Kids, Reading Counts, SEM, Teacher Team Resources, the Fall and Spring music concerts, Reflections, volunteer and teacher/staff appreciation, Astro Skate parties, and our spirit events, including the school store and spirit shirts and items. The PTA has helped support 5th grade activities, year-end awards, and so many other things, including school beautification. Without a President, the PTA would have to end at our school and our school, teachers, and children would lose so many benefits that have been provided through this organization.

If you have any interest to learn more about the President position and want to be part of the nominating committee, please come to the general membership meeting on Thursday, February 25th, 5:00 p.m. in the media center. You may also contact the Seminole Elementary PTA by the form below, or leave a message at the front office.

After the meeting, please join us at the multicultural event starting at 5:30p.m. The PTA will be sponsoring the United States of America!
