Message from Mia, SES President-
Hi parents! I have had so much fun holding the PTA President position for the last 2 school years! However, it's time to pass the baton to someone new, as our bylaws call for a two year term and my time is almost up. We are also looking for a VP of Programs and a VP of Volunteers for the 2020-2021 school year.

I want to encourage anyone who likes to help out at our school to think about joining the Board. It's been such a great experience- I've made so many new friendships, learned a lot about all of the great programs we support and feel such a sense of accomplishment at all we have been able to do the last 2 years.

We need your help! Please consider reaching out. I would love to tell you about the available positions and will treat you to coffee :-)

What are you waiting for? Email me at president@stoneleighpta.org
