Officers needed for 2015-2016 PTO Board/PTO Meeting May 7

Editor’s note: The next PTO meeting is Thursday, May 7th at 7:00p.m. in the cafetorium. Childcare will be provided. Please consider joining next year’s PTO Board. Without a Board, monies that make our children’s lives better (i.e. field trips, equipment, Carnival, etc.) cannot happen. We realize everyone’s schedules are busy, but this time commitment makes a big difference, and is very manageable. I speak from experience–I’ve served on no less than four Ed. Smith PTO Boards, and have been glad that I did each and every time. We hope you will consider it:)

Dear Ed Smith School Community,

As the school year draws to a close, so does the terms of our PTO Board Members. We are seeking replacements for the following positions: (Co) Presidents, (Co) Vice Presidents, Treasurer, (Co) Recording Secretary(s) and Corresponding Secretary. Please read the attached description of the responsibilities of each position and consider volunteering. Nominations can be submitted to the Co-Presidents and Nominating Committee by the May 7th PTO meeting. Elections will be held at the final PTO meeting in June. Two parents have expressed interest in the Treasurer and Corresponding Secretary positions – let’s help them out by encouraging others to take on the remaining, equally satisfying roles.

If you have questions or would like additional information re: the positions, please contact the current representatives.

We all agree it has been an honor and a pleasure to serve with each other and the Ed Smith School community. The job has rewarded us with new friends, a higher level of involvement in our children’s school environment, a greater appreciation for the work of administrators, teachers and staff and a broader understanding of the educational process. We leave with a sense of accomplishment and entrust the Board to the next set of officers. We strongly encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to serve and submit your name as a nominee. The PTO Board and the committed families who actively support them help make possible field trips, school improvements (i.e. cafetorium sound system, sustainable native plant garden), the carnival, the science fair, the middle school musical and many other events and activities that enrich your child’s educational experience at Ed Smith School.

Please consider stepping up – the PTO needs and values your help.

Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you!


Mary Anne Stanton

Corresponding Secretary
