Do's and Don'ts of endorsing bond measures

Washington State PTA has provided a great information sheet for us on what we can and cannot do as PTA's. Hint: Your PTA can vote to support a bond measure! This document outlines the steps your PTA can take to endorse a bond measure, and what you can and can't do. Please read this carefully and contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Region 9 Fall Conferences: August 18th and September 10th

This year, Region 9 will be holding two Fall Conferences: the first is on Thursday, August 18th, from 5:30-9 at Mill Creek Middle School in Kent. Registration is FREE! Click here to register. This is a great way for your board members to receive their training (remember that all elected officers must receive training). The course offerings are listed with the registration.

The second Fall Conference will be held on Saturday, September 10th at Auburn Riverside High School in Auburn. PTA and the Law will be offered at this event. Registration will be available later this month.

Enter Your Officers for This Year!

Thank you to those boards who entered their officers for the 2016-2017 year in PT Avenue. Just over half of you have done so. If you have not, please be sure to enter your officers ASAP so they receive important communications from us and from Washington State PTA.
