Chinook PTSA - Fall 2024

 

 

Chinook PTSA is beginning its search for rising 5th grade caregivers who would like to join our PTSA Board or Chair one of the committees. I know with the year ending and the finish line in sight, it's hard to think of volunteering for the next year. However, my ask is simply if you have any interest to reach out to me to discuss what is available. As you all know, the PTSA for middle school isn't as time consuming as it is in elementary. At Chinook we are fortunate that many of our heavy lifting roles are already filled, but we do have some positions that we would love to have incoming 6th grade caregivers be a part of. Please reach out to me, Debbie, at President@chinookptsa.org for more information. I promise...no hard sell, just a conversation about what is available. Thank you so much and congrats 5th grade caregivers on crossing that elementary finish line for your child!
