MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
LAST GENERAL PA MEETING OF THE YEAR:
June 20, 6:00-7:00 p.m., Beacon Library
This meeting will feature a panel of Seniors and their parents/caregivers who will discuss their experiences with the college process. Moderated by Deb Heller. Highly recommended for parents of rising Juniors and Seniors!
And… There are so many great ways to become an involved Beacon parent. The following Executive Board positions are still open and we are accepting nominations: Treasurer, Budget Committee, Audit Committee, Event Chairs, and Auction Chairs. The PA will hold an expedited election in October to fill these positions. We encourage you to throw your hat in the ring! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to nominate yourself or a friend, or if you have any questions.
COMING UP IN THE 2017–2018 SCHOOL YEAR:
Developing Parent Community
FAQs for Parents
The Community Outreach Committee is putting together a list of FAQs for parents in each grade. If anyone has suggestions for the FAQ list (questions, answers, info they wish they had known), or would like to volunteer to help with compiling and/or editing this list, please contact Kristine Gregorek and Ted Leather at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The PA would like to initiate a new system of Grade Representatives. These parent volunteers would serve as representatives for the 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grades. We are looking for 3–5 parents per grade who can take the lead in organizing the grade-wide potluck dinners at the beginning of the year, as well as organizing speakers for PA meetings that are of particular interest to their grades. If interested, please contact Bonnie Scarborough at email@example.com.
Because families are spread out among all five boroughs, the PA would like to initiate a new system of neighborhood representatives. These parent volunteers would organize social gatherings for parents in their own neighborhoods in an effort to build community, share common experiences as parents of teenagers, and possibly organize neighborhood fundraising events. If interested, please contact Bonnie Scarborough at firstname.lastname@example.org.
