April 2015

Hello families!

Thanks to all who came out to support our Science Fest this past weekend, and to the parents and teachers who created great experiences for the children.

It is that time of year where we call out to all P.S. 144 families to consider deepening their involvement with our parents' association. PA Executive Board & SLT Nominations are open now through May 8. A nominations form is going home that details each available position, and we'd love to hear from you if you have questions about how you can join us! Any parent or guardian of a P.S. 144 student is eligible to run, and you may nominate yourself or someone else. For more information, you may download this form: PA & SLT Nominations.

We will hold two information sessions about running for office:

- Monday, May 4 -- 6:30-8:00 PM, during our Executive Board meeting
- Tuesday, May 5 -- Meet the SLT after drop off in the cafeteria (8:15 AM-9:15 AM), where parent members of the SLT and PA executive board can answer your questions

You're also welcome to contact Rosanne at president@pa144.com with any questions. l
