PTSA General Meeting on Tuesday

Join us and vote in the PTSA Board elections, give feedback on a draft budget proposal, vote on our PTSA Standing Rules, and hear a report on the first BLT meeting (BLT is the Building Leadership Team, composed of school faculty and administrative staff as well as PTSA representatives). We'll meet this Tuesday, October 17 from 6:30 to 8:00 pm in the Meany Library. Hope to see you there!

Picture Day volunteers needed

Can you spare a couple hours to help out at Picture Day on Thursday, October 26? We need 8 volunteers who can work in 2-hour shifts between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm. Work 4 hours and get a free photo package; work 6 hours and get two! Email to sign up.

Special Education parent group

Thank you to all who attended the first gathering of the Special Education parent group! We invite anyone else who is interested to attend our next meeting on November 16 where we'll continue to talk about the challenges and frustrations, joys and triumphs, processes and paperwork involved in raising special kids — and how to foster inclusivity in our diverse school culture. Please contact Lori Hiltz to RSVP or with any questions.

Library volunteers still needed

Calling all book lovers! Shelly Macer, Meany's awesome librarian, needs a few more interested parents to help in the library. Activities include shelving, straightening, display setup, poster creation, checking books in/out, special events support, and more — all in the beautiful new Meany library. If you're interested and able to help on a regular basis (ideally every other week), please contact Ms. Macer to discuss details.

Online donations and Annual Fund coming soon

We are hard at work on making it easier to contribute to the PTSA. Watch this space for information and updates on the Annual Fund, online donations, corporate matching, and more.
