As we come to the end of this school year, there are a few reminders of things to be done.


              1.)  If you haven’t already gone into PTAEZ and input your new officers for next year, please do so now.  After June 1, any school that still hasn’t input it’s officers will receive a notice sent to the principal of the school to get the information. PLEASE send the roster to us if you have difficulty with the input.  All passwords have been reset so if you had trouble previously, the problem should be fixed. Please try! I have attached a step-by-step guide to inputting info.


              2.) Your new executive board will be voting on your budget for next year after officer installation.  This should be done with the input and advice of the current executive board.  Then, your association will be voting to approve the budget at your first meeting in September.  Please make certain you have money set aside in the budget for officer training so that they can attend at least one of the training sessions put on by Fourth District PTA.  Also, make certain you have monies in the budget for membership perks.  These will help you with membership drives throughout the year.  


              3.) Please have your officer installation by your last association meeting of the year.  They will all take office officially July 1


              4.) This is the time of year to plan your membership drives for back to school season.  PTA membership tables and banners should be planned for “Kinder Welcome” events. Notices going out to parents during the summer should be planned now.  


              5.) Reflections programs should be in place with the kids knowing now what could be worked on during the summer for the fall Reflection submittals.


              6,) All officers should meet with their successor and pass along all records for each position. 


              7.)  All incoming officers should be attending the training and vendor fare session on June 3rd to best perform their functions. Spanish translation is available at all sessions.  


              8.) Your current auditor will be performing the audit for the current period of January 1 through June 30.  Your incoming auditor will perform their first audit after July1 through December 31.  



Thanks for such an amazing year!  We appreciate all that you do for your communities and the kids!
