PTA Positions and Committees

Welcome Parents & Families to Mission Hill

2017-2018 PTA Officers and committee leads

The PTA is more than meetings.  We need help from parents in many ways including building a garden box, helping check out sports equipment during lunch, chaperoning dances and other events onsite which can be creative work or just moving heavy boxes.  All help very much appreciated by Mission Hill students and families.  

Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of every month  in the Library. Everyone is welcome - we hope to see you there!

First meeting of the 2017-2018 school year will be Tuesday, September 12, 2016, 6:30-7:30pm.
The PTA will be publishing a new, updated website soon.

Takes minutes of the meetings and distributes to PTA members. Currently this is done via the website. 
Keeps track of all monies coming in and going out.  Responsible for once a year audit.

Hospitality Chair
Hospitality has two main components: staff/teacher breakfasts, and the end of year lunch.  Use "Signup genius" account with volunteer info to send out all calls for breakfast items and help.  Current Hospitality has account information.
•Hospitality plans and delivers breakfast for teachers ~5/6 times a year….from August through May.  Coordinate with the principal and her assistant, regarding best dates. They put them on the calendar and make announcements that morning. I tended to do alternate bigger breakfasts with a smaller coffee/bagels one. 
Typically school year hospitality events for teachers:  Back to school planning meeting breakfast (day before school starts) big,  Friday before Thanksgiving,  Friday in December (before winter break, smaller coffee and bagels),  Thursday, February 14, Valentine's Day,  Friday  right before  spring break,
Friday, First full week of May - National Teacher Appreciation Week ,  Last Wednesday of the school year - Staff/Teacher Luncheon (this is the only midday event, starts at 1:00 PM).
•We also organize the teacher/staff appreciation luncheon which is the biggest, most complex event. 
Occasionally, we also bring snacks for the PTA meetings.  
All purchases can be reimbursed by keeping receipts and handing them in with a reimbursement sheet to the Treasurer.
Help with school web page and school communication via School Loop and other avenues.
8th grade dance
Last dance of the year.  Needs coordination and meetings from about January.  Some of the dance decorations are saved to help decorate the Civic Auditorium for graduation the following week.
