Get Involved at McAuliffe in 2015-2016
The PTSA is doing some planning for next year -- and that's exactly the type of people it's looking for! A chairperson oversees the planning, budget, and coordination of other volunteers. The PTSA highly encourages the "buddy system" -- get a friend (or two) and team up as co-chairs for any of the following events, programs or services:
Chairpersons receive support from the Board, and most events have detailed notes from previous years. Contact PTSA president-elect Anne McKenzie for more information on how you can be part of the PTSA's success at McAuliffe next year!
To create a fun-loving, welcoming environment that expresses the spirit of our school ; to support school programs and activities that engage and empower families and communities to advocate for all children.
