PTA & the Law will be offered on Wednesday, October 1 at the Northshore Admin Center.
It is a requirement for all Local PTAs to have one officer take this every year; it is a great idea for as many Board members as possible to attend. Taken it so many times you could practically teach it? Things change every year, and so do the questions that other PTAs bring up. It's worth the investment of your time!!

Thank you for all you do and have done, and have a wonderful summer!!!
The Shoreline PTA Council Dessert Training is set for Monday, May 19 from 7-9 pm at the Shoreline Center.
This is an opportunity for you to get some training for the coming year and meet fellow officers across the District. In the past, classes for Treasurers, Secretaries, Board leadership, Presidents, and Advocacy have been offered.
Please contact Jeff Sackett, Council President, to let him know what classes your Board would like to attend so that he can find instructors for that evening. Email him: email@example.com
A reminder that this class is the same evening as the retirement ceremony for Superintendent Sue Walker. That event takes place at Shorewood from 4-6 pm.
