Get Ready for Next Year!

As you hold elections this spring, remember to enter your newly elected officers on PT Avenue.
In addition
, please send us your list of officers and email addresses at so we can begin a list for next year's board members. We hope to start off the year strong in Highline!

The PTA year closes on June 30th. June is a good time to schedule a transition meeting for your board, with your 2015-2016 board members and your 2016-2017 board. Share information, pass on your committee notebooks, and prepare for the next year! You should also schedule your yearly financial review for July or August, depending on how long it takes for your bank statements to arrive. Remember, you need three non-signers on your bank account to conduct the financial review. The Treasurer should not be present, but be available by phone to answer any questions. The Financial Review checklist is available under Leadership Resources on the Washington State PTA Website.

In addition, check out this fantastic document from our friends at the Lake Washington PTSA Council 2.8 who have put together a monthly list of board duties! Check to see if you are on track with your PTA!

As always, if you have any questions or concerns about your PTA, your school, or anything having to do with Highline or PTA, please do not hestiate to contact any of us. Our names and contact information for this year's board are at the beginning of this newsletter, along with Tania Skinner, our Region 9 Chair.

Thanks to Aimee Lloyd, there is a Facebook Group for Highline PTSA Boards! Click here to request to join. This is a great place for you to connect with other Highline PTSA's and to ask your questions!
